Harvest 2012

Mr. Handsome and I both grew up on farms. Wheat harvest is a big deal for each of our families.

There is something very special about this time of year. Entire families stop everything and work together to bring in one of the most important crops.

We help if we are needed. Mr. Handsome usually drives a combine for his Dad, and I bring food and refreshments to the field. Tonight's meal:  Burritos, chips and salsa, and a banana. I forgot to always plan for foods that can be eaten with one hand. This crowd doesn't stop working for anything, including an inconvenience like eating.

Cupcake did her part, heading off across the field to deliver her Dad's supper.

Of course we couldn't leave without a combine ride.

Just another happy summer day.

And the Cupcake quote of the day, waiting in line at the grocery store. "Mom, do you want plastic, or paper?"  She cracks me up.

Finally, have you noticed that Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth? The poor girl was concerned about the mouthless cat on her shirt for the entire day.
