Not only was Matthew around for harvest, but David had a couple of other drivers and that made for an efficient, productive couple of months.
For the first time in a couple of years, we also harvested grapes.
We finished harvest (with few pictures--it was a busy time!), shortly before the snow came.
After many early mornings and late suppers, David ended the hunting season successfully! Sydney especially likes venison, so she was just as happy as he was.

When he wasn't working outside or making plans for the coming year, our farmer found himself working on Matthew's truck. The two of them spent many hours problem solving and working together. It was a good weekend(++) project.
Thanksgiving found us in the Wisconsin Dells for a few days with the grandparents from Wyoming. Our visit ended with a treat from Grandpa Ken--giant cinnamon rolls at a local diner.
It wasn't long before Christmas when we found an afternoon to put up the tree. Apparently it's quite exhausting.
In January David made arrangements to make keepsakes for the children from the cedar tree we cut down in the front of the house. Now Pine Ridge Farm can go with them as they make their way hither and yon.
We see Matthew and Grace less and less, but we are grateful for the times and experiences the Lord allows us to share.
And spring is almost here.... We've found a lot of leaves and sticks now that the snow is melting. Who knows what else is just around the corner?
