While we were at the farm over Christmas, we went out and checked on the cows. They were eating corn stalks out of the field, that’s why this cow has so much snow on her nose.
This was a baby calf that was about 4 weeks old at the time.
The calves my dad is feeding were born around April- June of 2013. They are very friendly with him, but were shy when the camera was around.
My dad and Bill studied with Ben during Christmas vacation and he made the decison to become a child of God.
His mother and brother started attending the church in Dresden Germany a few years ago through the Let’s Start Talking Campaign. His mom was really excited that he was baptized.
One of the things Ben wanted to do was take his picture with a whole turkey before it got cut up. We didn’t get this accomplished at Thanksgiving, so during Christmas, my mom prepared a turkey that was given to her. The turkey was from Target, so for some reason it didn’t have legs or wings. It didn’t have the gross inside parts either.
We went sledding while we were in WI for Christmas.
Here’s Jemma and Ben going for their ride.
Now it’s time for the long walk to the top.
Everyone got a chance to go down the hill. The problem was there was a tree laying down and a rock at the bottom of the hill. My mom went down and caught air. The boys were really impressed. I on the other hand hit the rock and got thrown out of the sled.
My dad bought a new tractor before Christmas. He got to bring it home while we were there. Jemma is getting her ride.
Everyone got a chance to ride in it. Ben got his turn.
Some of us even had a chance to drive it. This is Justin taking his turn with my brother Kent supervising.
This is Will taking his turn. I drove the tractor too. I haven’t driven a tractor since I was in high school and then I tried to avoid it if I could. This tractor was so easy to drive, it was amazing.
