The new name for our family blog:

                                                     LIFE AT BROOKFIELD


                            Here are some pictures of the animals at Brookfield.
   This is our Winston.  I believe he was around three months old here. He is now two!

 These are the horses of Brookfield Family Farm: Larry and Oscita.

I'm afraid they don't care for the winter!

Oscita enjoys some fresh  grass this past summer.

Preparing for Thanksgiving

   At our house, Thanksgiving is a big affair for the whole family. Our family hosts this at our house. We have to prepare enough food for roughly thirty-five people. (sometimes there is even more.) For the most part, we mainly have family come, but sometimes we enjoy the company of others.

  This year, we will take around six hours of our time to prepare just the meal. Not to mention the three hours of housework….and the cleaning up afterwards:) But we thouroughly enjoy serving and blessing people! I’ll try and post pictures next week!

I just thought that this was festive...

Have a blessed week, bloggers, and have a Happy Thanksgiving:)
