Happy New Year!!!!! I am looking forward to another great year with my family on the farm!
I wanted to give a quick summary of what happened last year. The main thing that consumed our thoughts and time was the surrogacy and passing a beautiful baby girl on to a great family! We also had a garden and preserved some food. Carla worked on many quilts and other crafty projects. The quilting hobby has become her new obsession. We look forward to 2012!
