Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Boots by the Stove on Christmas Eve

The boots and the times are changing 
at the Little Red Farmhouse
but the tradition of putting the boots
by the stove on Christmas Eve still stands.

From our home to yours,
Merry Christmas!

Luke 2:11
Today in the town of David 
a Savior has been born to you;
He is the Messiah, the Lord.

Buddy the Elf Teen Christmas Party

Son of a Nutcracker,
 an Elf Christmas Party ~
It was a sleigh-full of fun!

For the tablescape,
we had Chex mix & nuts
by the nutcracker,

Spagetti Cupcakes,

Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corn
& Syrup,

Cookie Dough Dip with Pretzel Sticks,

Beef & Cheddar Melt Mini Sandwiches,

Cotton Ball Shaped Cotton Candy
(made with a little cotton candy machine)
so fun,

Milk bottles with 
strawberry, chocolate, and caramel
"Is there sugar in syrup?"

Also on the table but not photographed
was a Kringle 3000 sleigh filled with Little Smokie Cresent Rolls.

The guests were all from our homeschool co-op.
(Who says homeschool kids aren't social?!)

They had a Dirty Santa gift exchange of Christmas socks and hats,

 and a Dance Party dance off.

A few brave ones dared to do a 2 liter coke chugging contest.

We just love this group.  All of them different and all include each other joyfully.
That's what made the party great really.
That and the Buddy photo bomb that just happened while we were taking a group pic!
Love it!

Everyone took home wishes of a Merry Christmas
and a glass bottle Coke dressed up like an elf!

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer
is singing loud for all to hear!"
