Giving Thanks

I am thankful for...Maine Man of course! Without this man this farmhouse and land would be merely that. He is what makes this farm a FARM! What would we do without his know how to fix and do just about anything, his can do attitude, and his strong work ethic?
He truly is OUR HERO!
I am thankful for... Ms. Turkey who gave her life to nourish ours yesterday and for days to come.

I am thankful for....the bounty of our harvest!

I am thankful for....the kids next door who add great joy to my children's lives!

I am thankful for....these stinky little pigs. Barbie & Que. It is so nice to never have a scrap of food go to waste.

I am thankful for...our 20 little laying hens. By far one of the most efficient animals to have. Nothing like going out to feed them and returning to the house with a basket full of eggs for breakfast. Immediate gratification, I'm all about that!

I am thankful....that we are able to raise most of the meat we eat!

I am thankful for...these two munchkins!
For...helping Dad the other night get dinner ready and do dishes
For...being each others best friend (all though some days you may not admit)
For...being considerate & kind to others
For...doing so good in school gratitude to the animals you eat each night at the dinner table
For...helping your Dad process the animals, you know how spleeny mom is ;)
For...being the BEST kids a Mom & Dad could ever ask for.
For...being yourselves!
There is SO much more to be thankful for but it's getting late and I will end this post with a BIG
THANKS to all my family. I would not be where I am or the person I've become without your love, support, and guidance!
Lastly I am thankful for... ALL my friends, both live and virtual! I am fortunate to have such a great support network!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
