Welcome to week three of the December 2019 "You're the Star" Blog Hop! The kids have just one last week of school before vacation, and things are buzzing around our homestead. Seed catalogues are being perused, a decision to pick up a couple cochin hens is being discussed, and a tally of the broilers in the freezer shows we should eat chicken more often.

Our tree is up in the living room, and the decorations aren't far behind. We don't do 'themes' on our trees, but rather place the ornaments we've collected over the years, each of us taking a turn. Most of the gift procurement is completed, with only the wrapping to be done. Well, that, and the kids' stockings.

Christmas Eve will find us gathered in our own home, with friends and relatives coming over to do a Yankee Swap and eat good food. The ice-cream maker will be running steadily starting Friday or so, and the baking will ramp up next Monday. 

From our homesteading family to yours, Merry Christmas!
