Harvest Wrap Up & our Favorite Snack on the Go!

Time flies, especially the older I get, the faster it seems to go. 12 years of marriage and 3 kids later, it is hard to sit back because life going by at a very past pace. I don't wish any day to go faster, but during the fall, days seem to go so fast and slow. All at the same time.

This is my view during harvest. The rear-end of the trucks, tandems, wagons and semis. I work at the biggest building in town. 

  This is Dave's view during silage season, loading on the go.

I'm thinking we are getting too much window time! Excuse me while I step outside for some fresh air!

My older two helping out in the office. I really believe Macie could run the scales by herself.  She also keeps a watchful eye on the guys in the drive, and tells them once in awhile on the radio to "Get to work!" Not that I would EVER to that.  At least on the radio!

Mason's first ride in the combine. Meme and Papa finally talked him into a combine ride.  This past spring he didn't know what to think about big tractors!  This weekend he rode on the combine he also rode with the neighbors in their tractor and semi for a ride into town to the elevator. 

If you made it this far, you have also figured out meals are far and few between at out house.  Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars is a family favorite and a staple in our house.  I hate to admit it, has also been a breakfast treat for the kids on the go in the car in the mornings!  Some mornings, a "cookie bar" is Mason's first request in the morning, before he gets out of bed.  He must dream about it! I use to dream about my mom making it! It's so easy to make, I don't mind throwing this together when I get home from work late.
