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.

New Years Eve Madness

In addition to the fabulous "Snowballs" on New Years Eve here are some of our other activities to fill the day and night....

Riding horses with Grandpa, Uncle Brock, and Daegen...
Feasting on fabulous fondue...
Piling into Grandma and Grandpas car because it was too cold to walk to the barn....
Listening to Callista say "pinahta" over and over again....
Having a raging dance party in the barn....
Watching the girls try to knock down "Mr. Sunshine"....

Callista missed...
My attempt...
.
Brock smashing the "Mr. Sunshine" into pieces....
The girls picking up their prizes from the ultra clean barn floor....
Trying to share a romantic kiss with my half-asleep husband and trying to document it with my own camera...instead we got a great nostril shot. yuck.
Happy New Years!!! And so 2009 comes to a conclusion. Full of love and joy and a few tears. May the new year be better than the last. Could we ever be so blessed?
