Farmin', A Great Movie, Power Problems and Dead Deer.

The farmers across the street started to harvest the corn last week. Unfortunately it started to rain so they stopped after only getting two rows done.

Pendragon - Sword of His Father

Last Wednesday we were privileged to be a part of the celebration and premier of the Pendragon film! It was an evening of excitement as so many that had help out and been a part of this great film came together to see the culmination of all their hard work! Also, it was a blessing to be able to spend a little time with dear friends especially those who had traveled many miles to come to the preview!

Here I am with Grace Atherton(my name twin from Indiana ) and Theresa Eddy.

Christina Atherton and Christianna. Is it just me or do they look a lot alike?

Can you guess whats going on here? Yup, our power went out Saturday morning and unfortunately with all the rain and because there just happens to be 1,200 acres of water directed to our backyard, our sump pump was getting a little over loaded and thus we had to run a bucket brigade every 30 mins!
Thankfully and amazingly this has been the only time in our 1 1/2 years of living here that our power has been cut.

Bring out the candles!

No heat, freezing temperatures, and nothing for we brought the grill into the garage and fired it up to try to heat up some water. Luke warm hot chocolate anyone? =P

In between bailing, talking to John in that oh so lovely sounding state of Texas! =)
Thankfully we did not have to suffer long when the power came back on around 4 pm and not the predicted 11pm!

Later that evening Josh, Josiah and I stopped by the buck pole in town to see all that had been harvested on opening day. Quite a sight to see and yes the jerky was very tasty!
