I had such a great break! There were a bunch of people at the farm and we had a blast. This post will be mostly pictures because I have a lot of pictures. Thanksgiving morning was eventful as always. We worked cows. There was a lot of people there this year and a lot of people who had never done anything like that so we had a lot of eager helpers. I think everyone had a good time and no one got hurt to bad. (Besides some bruises and scratches)
I will let the pictures tell the story of how the morning went. :)
|It was a bit foggy as we started rounding up the cows.|
|Elisa giving an injection. Pro! :)|
|I believe this is Sally smashed in with a wild cow. Poor Sally... Elisa is consoling her.|
|Macy's friend Julie came all the way from Tennessee to join us for Thanksgiving.|
|She got stuck...|
|They had to cut her out!|
|It was quite exciting!|
|She made it out fine! Thank goodness she wasn't a wild one.|
|I <3 cows!|
|Macy even helped out this year.|
|Julie, working hard!|
|I had to put this up because William cracks me up in it. I literally laughed out loud.|
|Andrew doin' a jig.|
|I'm unsure what is happening her but it looks serious.|
|Such a cutie!|
|"Maybe he will just fall over if we push hard enough." LOL|
|I didn't actually castrate anything but I did help Luke search for what I'm going to say was a distended testicle.|
|Weirdo's dissecting a testicle.|
After we finished up the cows we headed home to feast, and boy was it a feast! :) We then went over to the farm to show Julie's friend Lindsey and Macy's Julie around the farm. We climbed the grain tower and then headed home for a crazy game of Dutch Blitz. It was one of the craziest games of Dutch Blitz I have played in a long time. It was so much fun! Between Steven and Macy it was very hard to concentrate but we had a GREAT time. It was great to have everyone home and spend time with family.
Friday, my mom and I braved black Friday. Not really, just Atwood's. We got some really great deals though. :) Kody came over Friday night and we all spent the evening reading Christmas stories. (more like me reading and everyone listening, except my dad and Kody falling asleep. ha)
Sabbath, I taught the Sabbath School lesson on the spur of the moment, cousin Steven was there (very happy about that) and I had to talk for part of the sermon. (yikes!) It was really a great Sabbath.
Saturday night we had a hayride. It was pretty chilly and very windy! It was fun though! The "younger" people played sardines but I didn't play because I didn't want to make Kody sit there by himself (he has a hurt knee that doesn't need to step in a hole in the dark.) We had fun singing around the fire. We headed home and were going to play games but instead I completely passed out on the couch. ha
Sunday was back to reality and studying. Boo! Only a little over 2 weeks left. Crazy!
This is pretty brief but I need to get back to studying anatomy. I have a test Friday!
Hope everyone of you had as great a Thanksgiving as I did! I have so much to be thankful for.
