Madison on Halloween

DSC_0778This is Madison, our son Daniel’s dog (Cabela/Jackson) on Halloween. The last few weeks have been so exciting on the farm. We have several litters so I am enjoying lots of puppy time! This is such a beautiful time of the year. Although it is busy getting the farm ready for winter, Russ and I take time to walk in the woods and just enjoy the season change. October is his favorite month so he takes vacation time to cut wood and bow hunt. Most of our kids are coming home the next two weekends for deer hunting. It is a family tradition. I really enjoy all the stories of what everyone experienced in the woods. It is a bonus to have the grandkids home to help hold puppies!


I know Christmas is coming and we tend to rush from Halloween right into Christmas, but Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays we have in America. Even though there is so much grumbling and complaining about politics, we live in an amazing country with a lot of really good people. With all the hanging of holiday lights and putting up the tree, I don’t want to lose sight of Thanksgiving, and being grateful for all that I have. When life is going well I tend to take the little things for granted. I don’t want to do that. I want to live in the moment and drink in all the goodness of each day!


I will be posting photos & videos of the new puppies and my sweet grandchildren. Hope you enjoy them and can see some of the things in your life to be thankful for. We are blessed.
