I guess I am havin' a real and hard sentimental journey today coming up on our 5 year anniversary at Maple Valley Farm... I have been at tears much of the day... So very many people that have touched our lives in such tremendous ways that really will never know that you had a divine appointment to be with us at the exact times when we needed it more than you will ever know... You were just doing what you do and we were reaping the rewards of your obedience and you had no idea how special you are to us in ways you will never comprehend... To Frank at Lats, to Bruce "at the car lot", to the dear Doosenberys, to the G family with the painter mamma, to some friends that I have lost , to Rox, to the Dam Taxi Service, to a local tire place, to Mr. Welch, and a man named Carl, to Uncle Ken, to Art Prize after a very hard time for our family, to our precious baby that we lost, to the local EMS when dear Buddy was severely hurt, to the dear precious Laswell family- you were always there for us, and sweet Mrs. A, to The Weaver family, and The Beachy's and your team of horses, to The Perry's, and special aunts and uncles, to the stick it out with you family and friends, to Uncle Shane, and just way to many to list. Tears as I write for sure... So many special people that God put in our lives. I have learned so many lessons this last 5 years that we have lived here. I regret that I have been judgmental to others at times and I am sorry. Of all people, I should have known that we can never know what people might be going through at the very time they seem different, frustrated, mad or whatever. I hope that I can move forward from this 5 years with more grace, mercy, forgiveness and acceptance and love to others. I have made many mistakes. We love you all so very much. I love all of you so very much. Thank you for being a part of our lives on this journey we are on xo

Grab a copy at your local Barnes and Noble, Meijer, Books a Million, TSC and many more places... Besides, there are many many great homes in this magazine (much more creative than mine) to inspire you for the holidays

So here is the recipe: ps. We **double** this in a 9x13 for our family size
Beat together: 2 farm fresh eggs, 1 cup oil of your choice, canola or coconut oil, 1 1 cup sugar or a sweetener like maple syrup and 1 tsp. of vanilla
Add: 2 cups flour (the bad white stuff - could substitute 1 1/2 cups white and a 1/2 cup whole wheat), 1 tsp. real salt (the pink stuff) 1 tsp. soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon and beat well
Add: 2 LARGE apples, diced and if you would like 1/2 cup nuts (but if you do not add nuts add a medium sized apple - this is what I do) Beat well
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees approximately 40 minutes OR until a fork comes out clean!
That's it! Easy and very gut!

I am not a "morning mom" are you? My mornings go best when breakfast is made or VERY well planned the night before. The children are always hungry before they even wake up We have been having a ton of apple bread (easy recipe) and boiled eggs for breakfast since we started our school year. In fact, I have another apple bread/cake baking right now for the kick off of deer hunting season (youth hunt) tomorrow. What are some easy things you make for breakfast? Do tell me xo
In the spirit of farming, family and faith,
