Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. Philippians 2:3-4

Indigo: “Is there going to be food?”
Dad: “Yes, didn’t you hear me say that?”
Indigo: “I guess my stomach was growling too loudly for me to hear you.”

Ask a Jonas — Hewitt & A New Soap Scent

We get asked lots of questions when we’re doing farm toursselling soap at craft fairs, or simply running errands.  Since most of those answers are heard only by the person who asked, we decided to share some of the common questions here on the blog.  And of course you can ask a question of your own!

Hewitt, if you could create a new soap scent, what would it be? ~EFranks1985

Hewitt:  That is really really hard.   I think I would call it WAR soap.  It would smell like dirty boys with wooden swords “play” fighting!   I think everyone who orders it should get a wooden sword or shield.    When you’re fighting you get really dirty.  So when you use that soap, you’ll still smell like you’re fighting but you’ll be clean.  I’d paint it like two people were fighting with wooden swords. It would be the awesomest soap ever!

Jade: “Being a boy is so much easier. You don’t have to deal with your hair!”
Indigo: “Well, you do have to cut it more.”
Jade: “I have to cut mine too!”

Kids Decorating the Christmas Tree

This year, when we went to get our family Christmas Tree, Mom had the brilliant idea of getting a tree for the front porch of the soaproom.

The only problem was that we didn’t have any ornaments for it.

So the kids made some!

They took some of our packing paper from the shipping area.

Drew their ornaments and put some yarn on them.
