It's a wonderful life!

Almost every year for as long as I can remember, my family and I have had the tradition of watching "It's a Wonderful Life" on this day/night of death and darkness. This year however, Dad and Andrew were not even home until a few minutes ago, so the rest of us watched the sweetened condensed version of our old favorite. (Be sure to skip the ad in the beginning if you watch it.)

Then we watched "Sergeant York" which is another wonderful old movie (starring Gary Cooper, who becomes a Christian in the film....). That movie can be viewed on YouTube, part 1 HERE and part 2 HERE!

Here are a few pictures from cattle moving day:
(Dad on a 4-wheeler...)
Mom drove the trailer to pick up a couple little calves that were born this Fall....

Andrew's on his dirt-bike in this picture, although it's a bit hard to see him on account of the bright sunshine!

Jacob was on his dirt-bike that day and I drove the other 4-wheeler.

If you look closely, you'll be able to see my other brother in the picture below! I took this photo this morning, when Jacob went out to check the fence to make sure it was still zapping...

Mother, Jacob and I got several things accomplished in the house today. Outside of schoolwork, we got another batch of apples done, and worked on switching our clothes around (Summer to Winter). I also baked a crumb cake so we'll have something sweet to put in the guys' lunch boxes again.

When Dad got home tonight, he informed us that he sold another 7 loads of hay today! What a blessing. He also got a call from somebody who may be interested in buying our Temvik house....

Have a wonderful November everyone! We are preparing for the boys' birthdays which are just around the corner. :)

Hi Cora, :)

I'm glad you had a good day yesterday. Canning and cooking... it never seems to end. But I love it all. :)

Got more to do today too.
Yours Carra
