Welcome to another week of Homestead Happenings. It has been an exciting, cold, long week. We kicked off the week by going on a mini vacation overnight. We managed to find someone to take Heidi the homestead hound for us, and our neighbor made sure the critter shed was attended to. We drove 3+ hours to take the country kids to Great Wolf Lodge as part of their Christmas gift this year. We thought we were being the “cool” parents letting them skip school on a Monday in order to go, but it turns out Mother Nature stepped in with a snow storm, so they didn’t miss school after all because it was a snow day! Though we still had to drive home in the white stuff. Blech!
I know it is only December but I am going to go on record and say I am already over frozen waterers and trudging through the snow. But it is pretty and definitely getting me in the Christmas mood. Hubby and I even got the country kids a real tree! Why? Because hubby said our fake tree smelled like old people…. Umm I had that tree since before I had my hubby and if it smells like old people, it’s because WE are OLD people! Okay maybe not but the tree was over 20 years old.
So what made me smile this week?
