We have it all going this Christmas - wonderful lights, casual decorations, a killer Charlie Brown tree, and a roaring fire.
One piece missing are gifts. Years ago, we quit buying each other gifts. What we need, we buy. We don't need to wait for a holiday.
Okay, we do get each other Amazon gift cards.
But this year, a real gift came at an odd time. Our cow was ready. Perfect timing. We drove out to Mike's house to pick up the beef. While the guys were doing business and packing up, I went to see the cows still standing.
They were a little skittish. Who can blame them?
After I walked around for a bit, they ventured a little closer.
Her ears look like pigtails. :)
We have our freezers full of some of the best beef on the planet. We love buying locally from a good friend and great farmer. All the different cuts of beef make us experiment in ways that we never imagined.
It's the perfect gift this Christmas Eve.
Merry Christmas Eve.
