Hello. I am udderly excited to bring you this card today. I grew up on a farm with my grandparents. We always had lots of animals and crops. I think I was probably around 10 before I ever realized you could by actual groceries in the store. Weird right? The only things I can remember my granny going to the store for were sugar, flour, Crisco, chips and soda. We had everything else at our fingertips. We milked the cows daily and once a year we butchered a cow for beef. We had chickens for eggs and whenever we wanted chicken for dinner, we would go to the barn and get one. Pigs, we had those too. I even raised a baby pig one year because it was the runt. We butchered one every fall and put it in the smokehouse. There is nothing that smells better than a smokehouse. It has a distinct smell and just smells good. We grew all types of vegetables and worked the gardens daily. I didn't even know you could buy veggies in a can..lol Every morning before school I would get up around 5am, go milk, gather eggs, slop the hogs, and feed all the animals. I could drive a tractor before I could drive a lawn mower. It was a wonderful childhood with lots of great memories.
So, I decided to make a birthday card using one of my favorite barn yard animals.
Thanks for stopping in today and learning about a part of my childhood. I pray you have a blessed day.
