The very best time of year. sorta.

This time of year it is always busy around here, preparing for winter.
We have frozen lots of vegetables, Corn, Broccoli, Green beans, tomato sauce.
It is rather exciting thinking about the times we can pull a little bit of summer out to eat.
And then the boys, and sometimes girls (Mom actually helps alot out there) :)
cut and bring wood up to the wood sheds.

Here is Abner watching Mom harvest the onions and carrots.
and Mom and Piper, for some reason Piper really likes Mom. and hangs out with her alot. :)
It is rather funny at times since Mom is definitely not a animal lover.
and one of our beautiful pumpkins.

Have a lovely fall day!

Bloom where you're planted...

But what if...

...you haven't been planted?

...'In the same way, let your light shine before men,
that they may see your your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
Matthew 5:16

Some tortures are physical and some are mental,
but one that's both is dental.

My birthday.

On Thursday we had my birthday party, since on Friday I got my wisdom teeth out.

It was lovely,

Jonathan with his lovely gift. He is so cute!
(he just lost his tooth)

Mara, wrote me a book! Is that not the coolest thing? It is about cosmos fairy, and her family.
She is really one talented girl.

and, Mom and Dad got me a Cake stand for my birthday,
isn't it just charming?

I had some lovely phone calls and messages on facebook,

It just made it all the more exciting.

I think I will do it again next year. :)

Philippians 1:3

I love that I've known you forever and always. It's like God was making us at the same time and decided to fit us together perfectly. It's like we were made to be friends.I love that you make me laugh. The things you say, the faces you make, everything. I love that you send me letters to make me laugh even though we are hours away from each other.I love that you know me so well and love me anyways. I love that you listen to my heart when I need to you to. I love that you trust me with yours.I love that you understand that being silly is quite important - no matter how old we get. I love that people look at us funny and chuckle because they don't understand.I love that we'll be best friends forever until we die. I love that Christ loved the two of us so much that He died on the cross so we could spend eternity together with Him.I just love you.

Did you know that you could grow Kiwis in Northern MN?
Well, You can. Dad can anyhow.
Yesterday Lucas and I decided to play in the Kiwi pen.
(I am not sure why it is called the Kiwi pen, But it always has been, and it probably always will.)
He brought a truck or 2 and I brought a camera. typical for both of us actually.
He sat on a kiwi. See it? And then he sat on me. :)
Here are little fellows. Very sweet and not at all fuzzy. So you don't have to peel them.
The inside looks the same as ones you can buy, except smaller.

And here is a ribbon for Kiwi awareness.
Spread the word! :)
