Stocking Swap

There are several that signed up for the swap but haven't sent me email or mailing addresses to pass on to their swap partners. PLEASE send me your information or I will have to take you out of the swap and give your partners a new one. If you haven't been in contact with your swap partner please let me know. Thanks,

Today has been a busy one. William is home for a few days and we cut more firewood today and plan on cutting more tomorrow. I have several large soap orders to get made so I may not post alot but will stay in touch over the next couple of days.

The animals got a mid afternoon snack today to tide them over till feeding time. William got a laugh out of the way they were crying for their supper. Hopefully a few more days will have their clocks on the right schedule.

Kitchen is slowly coming along. I have give on some things and stood my ground on other. Hopefully I will have some photos in the next couple of days.

Our family Christmas weekend is the second weekend of December. We always do a weekend with hayrides, Christmas caroling, crafts, gifts, stockings and lots of food. We do Christmas early so everyone can be home on Christmas and also have other days free for inlaws, school and church holiday events. We do secondhand or handmade gifts so its fun to find items at thriftstores, flea markets or make something special. There are 21 of us here for a weekend and its always a blast. Can't wait!!

Well I need to wash the supper dishes and get some soap cooking. Have a blessed night!

Hello dear Peggy:-) I'm back and slowly catching up with everyones news...I feel like I've been away a month instead of just a few days! lol I've emailed my swap partner and given her my home address so we're all set:-) I never thought of it, but the time change would affect the animals as well...hopefully they'll get settled to the new time soon. God knows I'm still trying to adjust! lol I soooo wish I could be there for your Christmas get together, sounds like a fabulous time and all things I love to do!!! xoxo
