Blogging hiatus hopefully over. With the addition project then rolling into the holidays and then the "Big Snow of 2014" and the stomach flu that took down my family and on and on.... I have been slack and not so much as considered a new post in quite some time. Life is finally starting to fall back into a sense of normalcy. The snow is gone, the family is well, and peas are planted. This weekend we get two new baby hogs. Pinky Pie and Pinkalicious left us Martin Luther King Day and are now residing in our freezer and the freezers of our loved ones. We are looking forward to a new adventure of breeding and raising our own pigs. Allen and the girls have been hard at work prepping the new piggy home over the past few days.
We are also prepping and planning for what will hopefully be our first true market garden. Allen will still manage the Farmers Market on Saturdays, but most Thursday evenings you should be able to find a Baker Farm table selling some fresh produce and crafty items. So much to do before the season starts!

Wrote a lovely post about my recent outting with the girls to a local park. And just realized that in my dumbness with a smart phone I have been posting not to this blog but to an old one I haven't used in years. So.... Better late than never here are a few pics of our most lovely evening.

Where did summer go? My oldest started first grade (what?!) this week, and her sisters will start classes in the next two weeks. It's our first year of all three in school.... 3 year preschool, 4k and 1st grade. And Farmer Allen finally gains two small windows of farm-only time on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. What will he do with no little girls running around him for 4 hours straight? Hopefully work on the darned addition that I am so ready to see complete. We are getting close.... dry wall is hung and finished. And I snuck in a look at paint swatches today during my lunch. Oh the girly colors my kiddos want.... never did I think I'd have a house with a lavendar room beside a pale pink room and yet now it is a possibility. We are hanging up some of our darker colors (bye bye brown bedroom) for some more light and airy spaces. De-clutter. Simplify.
