Enjoy the Christmas music!

Today we did some more outdoor work that we hadn't planned to do. I had thought we could just pile up leaves in our corral--that hasn't been built yet with pallets. But I learned that they'll just mat and mold. You have to chop them up. So that's what the boys did today down the hill--with the mower. We didn't get as much done as we wanted before the rain...

It was a quick and easy process--even though it was awfully windy!

We have many leaves left!

Until next time...

Please add yourself as a "follower" of my blog. And I love comments! They inspire me to keep blogging!!!

I'm sorry that I haven't put up a new post in 5+ MONTHS! Shame on me. No excuses. Now it's Christmas time--well actually it's not even December. Every time I advise anyone on starting a blog, I tell them: DON'T put off posting because it'll just get overwhelming and you'll shut down! That's what I did here! For now, I'll post some recent pictures. Of course, we took SO MANY pictures over the summer --garden, playing, etc. Maybe if I didn't take SO many pictures, I wouldn't feel that I had to include so many, and then I might not feel so overwhelmed!

I apologize to those of you who aren't on Facebook to follow my daily life! My blog looks like I dropped off the face of the earth!

This post will be the first of many throughout the holidays! I have loads of pictures to post since JUNE! I have to start slow though--overwhelming!

I have my Christmas music up now, so I want to have some holiday pictures!!
I keep my blog up often listening to the music while I work around the house or do other things on the internet!

This was made for me by my friend Chrissy YEARS ago!

Daytime pictures don't look so great!
Owen wants to put strands of shiny red beads on the tree. He said we did last year.

More pictures to come soon. I promised Jim I'd get stuff done while he and the boys ran errands!

Until next time...
