Catching up on What's Already Happened on the Farm

Turkeys playing 'king of the mountain'

Life has been happening fast on the farm.  By the time I sit down to write a blogpost, it feels like everything I was going to write about is old news.  This is one of those posts for the out of town family, that likes to see pictures of our family and others at our gatherings.  We have a lot of fun and good fellowship!

Miss President had her 7th birthday.  We enjoyed getting to spend the day with her.


T-Bob and Elizabeth took on the project of curing the bacon.  I always enjoy seeing the children working together.  I am looking forward to seeing the final result from this project!!!

Elizabeth thoroughly rubbing the cure into the meat.

Easter Sunday was a wonderful time of good fellowship at church, followed by a big gathering out here at the farm.  There were 29 people here, and lots of food!

The Miss President and Sadie were happy to see Grandma arrive, and gave her a BIG hug!

The boys spent a lot of time playing with the Lego's and other building toys in the family room.

There was homemade rolls ( regular and gluten free) broccoli casserole, broiled asparagus, fresh and cured ham, fresh apple sauce and a plethora of other savory and desert dishes.

The Almond Joy family joined us.  It was nice to have lots of girls and young boys to join us.

The young girl cousins wrote up a 'play' that was mostly singing and reciting.  Elizabeth helped with their organization. Thomas  did his prose piece that he uses in speech competitions, "The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig!"  The rest of us gathered to watch.

Dad enjoyed watching the children and spending time with family and friends!  We did get a little pinochle in during the evening.  It was a lovely day,

Well, I hear turkey poults peeping their stressed cry, so I am off to make sure everyone is OK.

I will write again soon, about all the new life on the farm!
