It may be a couple days late, but, Happy New Year!

After a busy December, we all took some time during the holiday season for some rest and relaxation, and we hope that you did too! 2013 was fantastic for us – we are thrilled with the growth and success that we saw this past year. With the start of the new year we have been talking and dreaming and scheming all about our plans for 1canoe2, and we can’t wait to get started! We are hoping that your year is off to a great start as well, and we wish all the best for you in 2014!

We also hope that your holiday season was filled with warmth and love and everything good that the season has to offer! Winter has engulfed us in full force here in Missouri. Our Christmas season was cold and snow-filled, the way it should be!

One of my Christmas highlights this year, which I hope becomes a yearly tradition for my family, was attending the Lighted Tractor Parade in the small but mighty town of Centralia, Missouri, which is about 20 miles away. It’s a small town in the center of a true farming community, and the parade was SO much fun. Everyone gathers around the town square, most people just park their pick-up trucks and sit on the tailgate, as a parade of highly decorated and electrified farm machinery makes their way through town. It was a little bit cheesy, kind of funny, but all together awesome. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a tractor pulling a grain auger decorated like a candy cane! A true way to celebrate Christmas in the country.

And, don’t you worry, I took pictures.

Merry Christmas!!!!
