Snapshots from our days

WOWZERS!  Look at me, posting twice in one week.  I'd say we are off to a good start around these parts.  I don't know about you, but I love pictures, and since my last post was all words and no photos, I thought I would put a few up today.  I'll comment here and there, but I'll try to let the pictures do most of the talking.

Natalie - 12   Levi - 9

Levi's 'Back-to-homeschool' picture.  My vintage boy.

Natalie is self-teaching the guitar, and she sounds awesome!

Pa and Ma from Hen Hollow Homestead

A beautiful sunset over our by Natalie

Nathaniel and Levi working on his shave horse.

After building the shave horse from scratch, Levi enjoys his new tool.

A little chicken coop clean-out.

New Year's Eve fun with my parents and Aunt Kellye!

Digging trenches to cover the garden.  My favorite work-mates!

Covers on the garden, trying to permanently kill off the weeds.

Another gorgeous sunset picture by Natalie.

Apple Puff...think egg custard with apples.  Lower carb and delicious!

Egg shells drying...useful for composting and fertilizing in the garden.

Hope these pictures bring a smile.  They are a teeny-tiny representation of all the fun and hard work we have here on the homestead.  Life isn't perfect, but we are extremely blessed, and so grateful.

**Quiz:  How many photos have someone wearing overalls?  Hint:  It is a different person in each picture!
You might be a homesteader if...overalls!  HAHA!


  1. Love the pic's. You guys have always been good taking pictures and WOW Natalie is GREAT at 12. Can't wait to get a wooden shaved item from Levi.
