Hi there! What a refreshingly modest group of homesteaders. Thank you for sharing the pictures. My favorite is the boots. We have a similar boot story on the floor in my kitchen most of the time. Have a great week!

I do hope you will share your Christmas preparations with us. I think many of us out here wish we had the life y'all live. Simple, yet very fulfilling. No distractions to pull you away from the important things in life. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season with friends and loved ones. Blessings to you all.

Dear West Ladies~Thank you for the post. As always...a joy to read. I also enjoyed the videos and added the butternut/pumpkin pie recipe to a notes page in your cookbook:) I was wondering if you would share the filling recipe for the whoopie pies? I have a lovely Amish cookbook and have tried their recipe and the cookie turns out splendidly but the filling.....not so good. As I recall they use a great deal of lard for the filling. Thank you and God Bless. Amy
