Today is the last day of Autumn.
Although, around here it's been looking wintry for weeks!
This past Saturday we were hit by a snow and ice event (more ice than snow).
You might remember that we were to have our family Christmas party on Saturday.
With ice impeding travel, we changed our plans to Sunday.
And because Sunday still felt like Saturday, I took yesterday off from blogging and pretended it was still Sunday.
|(Five hats knitted in four days...one for each of the girls.)|
Our party was great fun...as is all get-togethers with family.
|The table was set...Christmas crackers are a family tradition.|
We are so very lucky to have four generations to share the celebration.
|My beautiful Mom and her beautiful great granddaughter.|
We played and gifted and ate and surrounded each of those activities with lots of laughter.
I am so lucky to have a family that always gets along splendidly.
I was so surprised this year... the kids all went together and bought me a cider press.
Now I can make my own apple cider.
We've decided that Cider Press Day will be an annual autumn event on the farm.
I can hardly wait for the "First Annual"!
My favorite days are those spent with my kids...
|Mother and Daughter. Daughter: "Help, I'm turning into my Mom!"|
With the hustle and bustle of celebration behind us,
Hubbs and I will enjoy a quiet Christmas on the farm...
in the company of a few of our closest friends...
PS: Check out my Christmas present...
All I want for Christmas is NOT: Jury Duty!
It will not be easy to run this farm and attend Jury Duty at the same time....
so I am trying to be excused.
We'll see how that works!
