It is Prairie Flower Farm Party Time!



I told Him I loved Him back. Even did a little Praise Dance outside! It was only for the Lord! smile! I thanked Him for the vacation..............it was a gift from Him! I am sooooo very grateful! Wish all that have to work outside the Home could have a vacation with me also. I will be praying for you today!

Good Morning Sweet Ladies!

I am home sewing away this morning....first day of VACATION.........we will go to the fencing site later this morning...........so I am very busy getting things ready for the day............going to be packing orders...... so they can be sent out. Walked around the farm to check on the girls and guys! The ducks are quacking away and the chickens are very very happy........that Momma's Home! I am so blessed. I was just PRAISIN my God and Thanking Him for the job He gave our family.


This last week in the kitchen...........we were soooooo busy baking away. Lots of bread made up for gifts for faculty and fellow employees. One even went to the President at the college. It kept the girls and I movin for sure. It was fun to gift wrap the breads though........ not exactly like I would at HOME....... but I made some fast tags the night before. Used this really neat kraft sheets.........(Chef Q let me buy a box).........tied the tags on with a string.......and they looked really sweet!


Look at what I found in the college walk in fridge!!!!! I couldn't believe it. P written on every egg! Hmmmmmmm.......love those girly chickens! They wanted to make my day.......they did!



Today is one of those days I am just a little on the giddy side ..........can hardly contain the joy that is going on in this head! My girls think I am a little strange. I said.......you don't think they will think this is funny? They said if they are like you? That is not very nice...... tell me if you like! They do love me LOTS! Okay the face is not real.............just in case you thought those chickens were up to something else.........but the little button nose(?)..............that Momma chicken did that allllllll by herself.........just for me........and now you! Love it.........hope this makes you smile.

I am lovin this day already. I cleanned out our closet and bedroom last night............that felt wonderful. Going to decorate the top canopy of our little log frame around the top of the canopy on our bed for Christmas. My granddaughter is coming to stay with, for 2 nights she always turns the lights on and gets the bed turned before I come in (special little girl of 12). That means Poppa sleeps on the couch and the grandson sleeps on the floor next. They will talk and make memories.........Ellie and I will do the same. We have been doing that since she was a baby.............love being a Grammie..........just as nice as being a Momma. I love both!


We will read The Nativity ........getting our hearts ready for CHRISTmas.......... The book has pictures of the movie and scripture......together........I am so visual.



....... and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
Luke 2:7

Mary wrapped the first present (JESUS).

You know???? ...........I think we need a little party! The giveaway will be the book The Nativity Story. We will draw on Friday, Dec. 17th. It is a beautiful book!

  15. Hi Linda,
    What a wonderful giveaway. I have not seen nor heard of this book. Would be lovely to share with my granddaughter.

    I love when you write about what God is doing or has done in your life. We are supposed to praise Him and it is a blessing when we share it with others. I am always encouraged by your words.

    I also enjoy your crafts and seeing what is new.

  16. Oh, Linda~
    I am so happy that you get to spend some time at home! It makes me a little sad that you can't stay at home all the time, but it is so good that you all have a job together! That is truly a gift!

    I have never seen the Nativity Story movie or read the book. That would be a wonderful prize to win!

    I love all the stories of your farm, and the animals, and the great crafts... I love everything about Prairie Flower Farm!
    Especially your sweet spirit!

  22. Hello ladies.......just had to check in on the party........oh so many have come .........you just make the most wonderful parties!

    Worked on the fence and got quite a few posts in. It is going to be a real pretty one when we get it finished. I got quite a bit of stitching done also......I am working on a new design. Can't wait to show you. I will have to probably wait until after CHRISTmas to even start. Just doing the art for it now. That is the fun part!

    Well......thank so for coming and celebrating with!

    Hugs, Linda

    I just love the way you make me feel like we're girlfriends, just talking away over something warm and delicious in your kitchen, or slipping away to craft something together.

  33. What I enjoy best about your blog is your encouragement and Love for God and his word. It just pours out of your posts whatever they be about. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy the recipes, crafting, and farm updates but it's the love of Christ that attracted me initially to your blog.

  34. Everyday when I open my email I first look to see where your post is. I know that when I open it it is as close as I can get to walking in the backdoor as I did while there going to college. there are days that I miss being able to do that! My favoirte thing is the pictures, no matter what they are. love ya,
    Kitty

  36. Linda, I can honestly say my favorite thing about visiting your blog is your sweet spirit and knowing it is Jesus sweet Spirit in you. We love the same things...crafting, chickens, aprons, giving new life to things others pitch in the garbage...and so much more. I wish you the happiest of vacations and the merriest of Christmas'. In Christ's love...

  41. I can't think of a favorite thing. I love everything about the farm! But, if I have to pick I guess it would be the animals.

  45. First of all I love to see your header then all the other pictures, then I read the post and finally your footer is really cute now for Christmas. I think the smile egg is adorable. I've seen little bumps on eggs before but I've never thought about making a picture out of it. Just proves how creative you really are.

  57. Reading about Vitaliy, sounds so much like me Niece's situation. They brought Yuri here last summer & now again. They are trying to raise funds to adopt him. She went over there to all those countrys this summer with New Horizons. I am kind of dingy sometimes, most of the time actually. Was reading your post and couldn't remember if I posted or not about the party, so went back and read them. But I put all the things on one post, so this is the one to say I am a follower
