Winter is coming!

There is just something special about sitting in front of a cozy fireplace when it is cold outside. The snow is gently falling. Christmas lights are sparkling around you, and music is playing softly. That is when you just want to stop time for a bit. 

But before you can enjoy that view you have to gather all the firewood! Last Saturday a bunch of us went to a friend's house to cut and load up the wood from some dead trees he cut down. We actually had a great time doing it!

Can you tell who is having fun with the wood shavings?

We made a 'bucket brigade' from the pile of wood Dad was cutting to the trailer where Nathanael was stacking. Not all of the logs were thrown and caught successfully, but no one was hurt and there were a lot of laughs in the process.

Now we have a beautiful stack of wood ready to keep us comfy and cozy all winter.

"The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace."
Psalms 29:11

And a very pretty woodchuck at that. :)
You all should come cut wood at our place. We've got plenty!
