I only just realized I never uploaded Thanksgiving pictures. But, I have lots of excuses, car troubles, house flooding, torn ACL…

That said Thanksgiving at the farm this year was great, the weather was warm enough to keep the kids outside. We got to spend time with lots of family and of course it wouldn’t be a Thanksgiving at the farm without a fair amount of fire as well. 

Despite a fair about of bad luck we managed to get in some Christmas fun for the kiddos this year. We picked out a live tree, got to see Santa and a couple of his reindeer, we made it to the Yuletide show, made and decorated Christmas cookies, and got our letters into the Fishers Santa mailbox. A testament to the magic of the season, the kids didn’t seem to notice how stressed out and crazy this month has been. 

I don’t think I’ve ever needed or been so thankful for the kids’ enthusiasm and Christmas spirit. They really helped me stay focused on the fun and magic of the season. While I am definitely ready to move on to the next year, it’s great to finish this year off at home snuggling my family. I am so thankful for them! 

Prayers for a Happy New Year for us all.
