Give Thanks...

Well, it has been awhile since I have blogged...I think it is time I get back to it! I have had a few people asking me when I was going to start blogging again. Not sure really why I stopped. Guess it was a very busy summer...seems like we never slowed down. Now that the kiddos are back in school, I am finding my "normal" again. So...normal to me, is finding time to write a little bit about what goes on in our on the farm.

Today is our Canadian Thanksgiving. I have a hard time getting into the Thanksgiving mood in October...seems like November is the more "festive" time. But I do think, why not be Thankful more than once a year?! Why not celebrate twice?! Hey...maybe I will be thankful YEAR ROUND! Imagine that?! ha!
As of right now I have a ham cooking in the oven and it smells soooo good! Can't wait to sit down and enjoy it.

I thought I would share with you, on this Thanksgiving Day....Joey's "I Am Thankful For..." paper that he brought home from school on Friday. I think he said it perfectly.

"I Am Thankful For...."
My dad putting me in 4-H.
My 4-H calf helping me out at the fairs.
Clothes for warmth.
A farm for money.
A school for education.
Carrots for health.
Milk for calcium.
Finally, my little brother for surviving his huge fall
out of the hay loft this summer.

Carrots for health?!  Not sure where he came up with that one...ha!  But, good job on your writing Joey.  I hope we can all be as creative in our thinking of things to be thankful for.  (And...we are also so very thankful that our Ryan survived that very scary fall...)
Wishing each and every one of you a WONDERFUL Canadian Thanksgiving!!
