Makes My Heart Warm

To see my son love broccoli as much as he does.  And who wouldn't love this "urban farm" grown goodness - straight from our farm?!  Or the beautiful bouquet of Cosmos that Andy brought home to me fresh picked with the broccoli?  Speaking of farm, I will be posting a lot more in the coming year about our new "urban farm" and it's progress.  Right now we are getting ready to put up hoop houses for tomatoes and more cosmos as well as other warm weather crops.  We're trying to get a jump start!  I'm super excited and with a lot of hard work and a little luck, we should have tomatoes soon, and hopefully before the rest of the vendors at market!

Tomato transplants - they are growing so fast you can almost see them growing.  We're having tons of fun watching them come up and get bigger!

Busy, Busy, Busy

This is just a sample of the things I made and the things that Patrick got from Santa and us and the things that we have done over the past few days. Life is so busy and we are so broke, but I have a beautiful family and I feel lucky to have such wonderful people in my life - including my very special friends. I spent lots of hours cooking and sewing and knitting and worrying about how things were going to get done and how we were going to afford to make it a special Christmas for Patrick. But in the end it all worked out and he loved the day, mostly because he got to spend it with us and his cousins and his Grama Judy and Grandpa Bessey.
