~Merry Christmas~

IMG_7450 (5)

Okay it’s a bit late but Christmas seems to be ongoing here.  We actually have our beautiful REAL Christmas tree up still, today……..January 19!  I love that tree and especially at night when we turn on the lights to add beauty to the family rosary.  Also lit every night, are the porch lights which light up the yard and house so nicely.  I’m having a hard time giving it all up this year!  Wouldn’t the world be a better place if it was Christmas each and every day?  Christmas brings out the best in everyone!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and that the joy carries on throughout this new year.

Everyone was home this Christmas except for Jessi, Luke and the children.  We missed them very much but are also happy for them now living in beautiful western South Dakota!  The photo below is from their Christmas card taken out west.

I’ve been pretty slack keeping up with the blog.  I always thought  I’d  have more time for things once the children got older but that’s not the case with mothering!  It’s great to be alive and healthy.  Hope everyone has a good New Year.  LIFE IS GOOD BY GOLLY.

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?
