Dear Family and Friends,
Christmas was wonderful at Moraine. Big Brother has been enjoying his electronics and Little Brother has been reading books and playing with the Little People. Big Brother also celebrated G-pa's birthday by seeing the Hobbit. Big thought it was the best movie of the year. Sweetheart has been cooking a lot this past week. She has been using the crock pot, electric griddle and toaster oven. We have yet to use the chocolate fountain.
We have snow on the ground although no need for a plow just yet. Took a walk in the woods yesterday and it was very peaceful. I saw an owl at a distance and some coyote tracks near the side yard. We have plenty of Juncos at the feeders. Still no Turkeys in the yard. Sweetheart is worried Penny moved on to a different property.
I have spent the past week with The Boys. I have been on vacation enjoying new books about Indiana butterflies and shrubs of the Midwest. I have also been listening to The American album by Joe Purdy.
