Homestead Happenings 1/5/20

I don't have a lot to write about this week. So it will be kind of short.

New Year's Eve

Tuesday was New Year's Eve, and so as a tradition, we went to the store and bought a bunch of junk food. So things like Pizza Rolls, Bagel Bites, Pigs in Blankets, Cheese Sticks, Jalapeno Poppers, Wings... and usually we have Spanikopita. But we couldn't find any at the store.

That night we watched three movies! First, we watched the Space Cowboys. I really liked that one! Then Dad started playing Mr. Bean. That is a movie that I don't think I will ever re-watch! 😂 And then because some of my brothers were at a party. We decided to watch Charlie's Angels! Which they haven't seen... That was my favorite of the movies we watched!

Stacking wood

We had New Year's day off of work, so the youngest four stacked wood! Like all day...

Boys in Beast

We all have been super busy packing for our vacation! Colter, Emery, and Greyden are driving down to Florida and stopping at our cousin's house on the way. So they are leaving on Saturday. But the rest of us are flying on Monday. So all of us kids are getting super excited and started packing on Wednesday!

That is a typical picture of my brothers! I told them I needed a photo to put in the Homestead Happenings right before they left, and this is the only photo I got. So this is the one you get! 

Because we are headed on vacation. I will not be writing the Homestead Happenings every week. The staff back at the farm will be taking some pictures for me, and when I get back, I will write them all up, and post them then! 

I hope you all had a great week!

Donna – That’s so cool! And it also sounds delicious, I love a good Ice cream float! I’m so glad that I was able to remind you of good times with family. :)

Gloria – I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed that last year! Yes, I will be sharing all of those photos, I just wasn’t going to do it while I was on vacation. :) But I’ve written the Homestead Happenings, just like it happened, and I hope you enjoy reading them!

When I was growing up on a farm in southwest Michigan, we celebrated the New Year with ice cream floats. We had all the flavors and colors of soda pop that were available. That and tons of vanilla ice cream to make ice cream floats. Our parents didn’t go out to parties, they stayed home with us and had floats too…all after the cows were milked. I carried this tradition on with my children, who are now not only parents, but are grandparents. Thanks for reminding me of this tradition.

Waiting to see some pictures from your vacation. Really enjoyed the pics from your previous vacations, skating, playing in the snow, fixing the dock and on the houseboat. Maybe the family decided to keep it more private this time. That would be completely understandable of course.
