Greetings internet world from our little farm here in Randolph, MN! As I get better at this whole “blogging” thing I have learned that there is a huge network of great bloggers on everything agricultural related in Minnesota and through out the United States. As a part of this network, I decided to take part in Christmas in the Country Gift Exchange 2015.
As a part of that gift exchange, each person in that exchange buys a gift for a blogger that we are selected. I was given Jenny Schweigert who runs a site called The Magic Farm House I found out that she enjoys cooking and decided that who wouldn’t want a cookbook full of great recipes from Minnesota? So I decided to get her the Minnesota Hotdish cookbook. I hope she enjoys the recipes in it and has fun cooking them for her family.
The best part about being in this gift exchange was receiving a package from a Rebekah Gustafson in Wisconsin. It was a rather large package and I was pretty excited to open it up and see what was inside! This is what I found!
Merry Christmas to me! What a great box full of goodies; from the nice tape measure, fun new games (Farkle and For Get It) which got played a lot during family Christmas get together, the toy John Deere tractor, large beer mug, and last but definitely not least, the thermal socks. Now for those of you that know me well can get a good chuckle out of the socks. Although my prosthetic feet and legs may get cold, I really can’t feel it, so it really made me laugh when I saw them in the box. Rebekah, I hope you don’t mind me re-gifting these socks to my dad who may get a little more use out of them?!
Thank you Rebekah for the great and thoughtful gifts; I look forward to keeping up with your blog Cooped Up Creativity and finding out more about your family, and farm. What a great way this exchange has been to find new “friends” via the internet and share the Christmas spirit with others across the U.S.A.
A great big thank you to the Lara Duban from My Other Exciting Self who does a great job coordinating Christmas in the Country. #CITC2015
I look forward to doing this again next year and encourage others to try it for themselves.
Have a great day,
Brian – Lil Ass Farm
