New Year


Happy 2013!

It has been a while for posting...the holidays were great and we had a special visitor from Montreal with us to bring in the New Year. 
Enjoying a crisp winter walk
We had some pretty cold days that she was here...minus 15-20 which made it pretty fresh to be outside...at least the sun was shining so we were able to get out and take some walks and enjoy the sun.

Spirit and Baby Boy (we have not settled on a name yet for him) are more and more comfortable here as we are with them.  It is a different dynamic to the farm having such large animals...definitely enjoying the additions.




Watching the butter churn!

I have had some great fun making homemade cheese and butter.  It has turned out pretty good...so far!  My next experiment will be making a pie crust with the fresh butter to see what kind of a difference it will make...can't wait to have some homemade apple pie!
