What a wonderful Easter!

Monday, April 6, 2015
Easter is one of my favorite holidays!  To me it is a time for renewal.  It is a remembrance of an awakening after death.  Of course I am referring to Jesus being risen from the dead. But I am also referring to the beginning of spring.  After winter's "death" the renewal of spring comes and with it comes life.  I absolutely love springtime.  The beautiful flowers, the start of gardening, the sunshine and warmer days.  

I thought I would share with you just a few pictures of my family's Easter weekend.  We had egg hunts, church services, special meals, and even celebrated my father's 80th birthday!

Here are my beautiful eggs from our chickens getting ready to be boiled for deviled eggs.
And here are the eggs after they are done.  They were gobbled up in no time at our family dinner!  So easy to make and so good!
We went to an egg hunt and the kids had a great time.  Not only were there eggs that the kids searched for, but also there was candy everywhere!  Here is Carly gearing up for the egg hunt.
And here she is picking up eggs and candy.
Drew also had a great time at the egg hunt.  You have to admit Easter candy is some of the best!
And here they are after the hunt.  They are loving the loot they got!  In fact if you look close enough you can even see a little bit of chocolate on Drew's face.  I think he ate as he hunted. :-)

So what are some of the things that you did for Easter?

Welcome To Our Farm Adventures!

My family on our farm
Welcome to Henslee Farm Adventures! Ever since my family and I moved from the city to the country we have been having many adventures working and growing our 25 acres of land into a sustainable farm.  I thought it would be great to share with all of you our journey to sustainable living.  We are starting out slow, and we are learning a lot along the way, but one day we plan on becoming as sustainable as possible.  I have my parents to thank for the knowledge that I have.  They have past down to me their gardening techniques, canning knowledge, sewing tips, crocheting, knitting, and the list goes on.  My husband is great with building and mechanics, he can build anything from what we have on hand.  These are all wonderful traits and life skills that I would like to pass onto my children.

Here you will find recipes, gardening tips, crafts, holiday ideas, and anything else that may come up.  If this site looks a tad bit familiar, then you might have seen my first site at Sustainable Mom.  There is still some great information there that you can read, but be sure to come back here for even more! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have found something that you can take back to your family, and come by and see us again!
