Company Fun...

Benjamin, James and Silas seem to have constant chess games going. Not sure who's winning!
We played a few very fast games of Mennonite Madness.
Isaac fixed us up with jars of cream for making butter. When the milks warm it takes about 10-15 minutes of shaking.
One of the girls getting the last of the cream off the butter. With a little salt added it's so good! I think we got about 23 cups of butter.


  1. Sure wish I could have shaken a jar with ya'll! Glad to see that you all are having such a wonderful time.

  2. oh my goodness, we used to do that when we had our other cow! We have a churn though...
    Actually, another one of our cows is going to have a calf soon, so we'll be making butter AGAIN! YAY!:)

  3. Lol... I guess we're lazy! We always make our butter in the blender! Homemade butter is the best though! I wish we could find a place to get cows milk here in IL.


We'd love to hear what you have to say!
