A few gift ideas.....

I recently purchased Farmer Jason some Frogg Toggs for a gift. He totally LOVES them and would recommend them as a gift for any man that is outdoors quite often whether it be for work or for recreation.

They come in a variety of colors (including cammoflauge for the hunters out there). They are rain proof and windproof suits made from lightweight waterproof fabric. What we love about these is that they can be worn together as a suit or individually. Jason wears the jacket a whole lot.

Another thing we love about them is that this whole suit costs less than $100 (much less).

If you are searching for a gift for an outdoors loving guy, this would be perfect! I purchased mine locally at Academy but you can get them at Cabela's or Gander Mtn. as well.

Something I'm LOVING these days is my Kindle. A Kindle is a wireless reading device that is purchased through amazon.com. This wonder machine stores up to 1,500 books, is lighter than a typical paperback, and can go anywhere with you. The prices to purchase your books on Kindle are also much cheaper than buying a hardcopy of the book.

The Kindle would be a perfect gift for the avid reader in your family.

This has came in so handing as many hours of my day are spent rocking and nursing in a chair holding little Ruthie Claire. I've developed an extreme love for reading over these past few years and have read more books because of this! I have a small house and LOVE to look of books thrown into the decor, but I haven't the space for the volume that I go through.

However, let me say that any book that has a "How To" skill that will come in handy if something happens to go way wrong in America and we loose power for a good length of time or never regain power (hypothetically speaking....not going to even cross that bridge right now), I buy the hard copy. The pictures aren't that great on Kindle either so anything that is photo intensive wouldn't be good to purchase on Kindle either.

There you have it!

Hi, I'm Emily, a blog stalker. I found your blog from Heather Hendrick's. I have wanted to comment for awhile now but haven't. We use cloth diapers too. I LOVE your farm and wish we could use it but we live in NC.

I'm intrigued by this Kindle. I read all. the. time. Are all of the books $9.99? Have you ever come across a book that you wanted to read that wasn't offered on Kindle? And do you know if they offer textbooks of any kind? My husband is in seminary and we spend about what you would spend on a Kindle per semester! If we were able to get his books that way we could save tons of money. Thanks!
