t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


How I Spent the Last 7 Hours

Emmett's One-Year Old Jungle Fever Birthday Cake

It was worth every single minute!

Better said....He was worth every minute of it and more!
The little angel man actually slept most of the day,
so he wasn't even neglected!

The frosting on this cake is dangerous...but the cake (3 different flavors, yellow, chocolate, and marble) passes the whole grain, no refined junk test!
