The Pre Prom Party

Last September, we were asked to host the Pre Prom Party for Grady's graduating class.  These kids have been planning this party all year.

And these two waited all day long for the party to finally start...


The cars and limos and party buses all started to arrive at about 4pm.  We fit as many as we could in the yard but the cars were lined all the way down the road as well.

These kids are loved.  Their families and Grandmas and friends all wanted to see them and celebrate with them on their special day.



They brought salads and appetizers and had ordered 65 pounds of beef to have on buns.  We ran out of beef...and plates!  I think there were over 400 people here!

They asked me to make a cake....and it disappeared rather quickly! 


Sophie served it and she couldn't get it to them quick enough.  She would just go out with the tray and turn around for a refill.  I overheard someone say "Where is the girl with the cake?"


Here is this sweet girl!...


The dresses were beautiful and the young lads cleaned up well...



Jack managed to come in from the field and bring the new tractor on scene for photos...





There were girls in beautiful dresses out in the field petting the bottle fed lambs and others were holding kittens.  I think everyone had a very wonderful, memorable day.

I'm especially loving my Facebook feed this week!  It's filled with photos of everyone enjoying themselves at our farm!

Thanks to my sister-in-law, Aimy, for being my photographer for the day.  Much appreciated!

We are blessed.

Eggs come out of butts.

Aaannnnddddd....it's JUNE!

wow.  It sure doesn't feel like it!  It's cold and damp. 

Aaannnnndddd......it's still raining.....

The garden is planted but it's very muddy and the tomato plants look like they've gone dormant. 

We still have two fields to plant but it's impossible to get it done with the ground this wet.  Not having the crop in by June is pretty much unheard of.

Wee bit of stress happening....for all the farmers in the area.

The farmhouse was booked up nicely for the summer until we recently got a few cancellations.  Lots of spots on the calendar now.

Come on over and I'll share my world with you.  We love meeting the city folk....and I especially love their questions.  A teenager came to stay with his family not long ago and he asked if he could eat an egg from the henhouse.  I said Yes of course!  Then he said...but it just came out of that chickens butt!  I said....actually all eggs come out of chickens butts.  He looked at me so serious and said....but I get my eggs at the grocery store.

Yes.  All eggs come out of butts.  That's just reality.  Eat the eggs.

So much to learn when you stay with us at the farmhouse!

I recently discovered the boomerang app.  It cracks me up.  We were baking with rhubarb and having a little fun....

Ok...I'll stop now.  If you want to see more then find me on Instagram!

I've been jamming as many colours in the icing bag as I can and seeing what will happen when I make those swirly flowers....
