Happy Thanksgiving, Pack! I hope you enjoyed a bountiful dinner and the loving company of family and friends. Approximately one minute after the Thanksgiving turkey is served each year the grandkiddos become allowed to sign Christmas songs. Doing so before the November holiday always costs them a Christmas present. Christmas is my favorite time of year – well, it is…

Hello Pack. I hope you all have had a productive week of prepping. We have spent most of our time doing some fall planting, tractor repairs, welcoming Pearl’s kids into the world, and Christmas present crafting.
