Happy Christmas Eve!

Here’s a short and sweet post about some of the Christmas fun I’ve been having…
 1. I WON! I’m a repeat winner of the AGCO holiday photo contest. A huge thanks to AGCO for sponsoring the fun contest and also a really big thanks to all my friends and all the others who voted for me in the contest!! I’ll just let you read about it and check out my photo at AGCO’s blog site:

2. I’ve been baking… a LOT… but rather than re-blog about it, just check out my blog from last year. It’ll give you an idea of the variety of cookies I produce, though this year’s assortment does vary a bit from last year’s.

3. Yesterday I made my annual Christmas wreath for the barn at the family farm. Pictures of this year’s are included here, but to check out the step-by-step process of creating it, check out my pictorial how-to from last year:

4. Now I’m headed over to the farm to meet up with Mom and Dad. Today we’re having the Grott Farm company Christmas party to celebrate a great year in agriculture! (In other words, the three of us are going out to lunch!)

This was the quickest and easiest blog post I ever wrote!

I went on to win that contest last year, and now I’m in the running again and could use your vote! Wouldn’t you love to take pride in one of your Indiana  neighbors winning a global contest?!  Read on...

Running Update

I guess it’s been awhile since I last posted a blog, since my last one was about my 4th of July 5K. Anyhow, I’d like to provide an update on my running activities…
