Yesterday it was 70 degrees when I drove the kids to school... no kidding, 70 degrees!
This morning, we found Mother Nature had played a trick on us...what a change! Take a look around the farm...there's snow everywhere!
A snow-covered chicken coop ready for Christmas...
The Goat Barn sports a cheery wreath...after all, it is the boys' first Christmas!
Our dinner bell has two little icicles...and if the weatherman is right, it sounds like there's more ice on the way.
But that's okay...we're warm & cozy. There's a crackling fire in the fireplace, a Dutch oven on the stove bubbling away with chili, cornbread in the oven, kids giggling (and still in their jammies!), and Christmas music in the air.
So it's a happy Friday...this little fella says it all:
the laughter of children
cross-country train rides
barn sales & auctions
John Deere 4020's
living in the Heartland
simple country pleasures
the comforts of home
