A bit of good news lost in the mix over the holidays, and maybe appropriate to share here on New Year's Day. 

About a week ago I received word that my friend Abe, whom I've mentioned in the past on the blog, has just become a father for the third time, this one a boy like the previous two

Abe, who is a produce grower in Lancaster County, I'm sure won't mind the extra muscle around the farm in years to come (though girls often have to pull their weight on the Amish farm as well).

I also imagine Sarah wouldn't have minded a future kitchen helper, but Abe says that the boys are just going to have to learn to lend mom a hand too.
