Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve we had a lovely ham dinner at Grandma's house.
Then we had daddy read the Christmas story from the bible while our auntie and uncle dresses as Mary and Joseph.
After that we exchanged gifts.
Thank you all for such fun and lovely gifts. Our girls were so happy spending time with all of you. They talk about sleeping over at Grandma's all the time so I know they loved it!

A Snowy Day

Earlier this December like the 4th or 5th it snowed 6 inches. A few days later it was sunny and beautiful. Perfect for playing in the snow!



She was having a hard time getting her snowballs to stick together!

WeLove Snow!
The girls made big snowballs, and left lots of foot prints in the snow.

L Brought home4 new KIDS!

Yes sirree we have 4 Boer goat kids. They all were born in the spring and aren't a year old yet.
They have the softest hair I ever felt. When I was a girl we had Nubian goats and they weren't soft at all. They have very coarse bristly hair that I remember. When we went to pick them out we were able to hold a brand new baby goat. So cute and cuddly.
The girls have named them Princess, Cinderella "T"(she has a T on her forehead and a missing white leg because one is brown) and , Donner and Blitzen.
I just call them all my babies.

Over the river and through the woods to Grandpa's cabin we go!

The GPS knows the way
to drive the truck today
Thru the white and drifting snow OH!
Over the river and thru the wood,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes,
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go

Over the river and thru the wood,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bell ring,
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day-ay!

Over the river and thru the wood,
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Hurrah for the fun
Is the turkey done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!
Brrr it's cold outside!

girlish song

In the back of the car Sunday our little Lark/lilypad was singing.
Listening in to the words here is what I remember

.....Christmas is coming and Santa is coming
but he-eee is not really real.
Just dressed up like Halloween but it's not Halloween.
then he tells the kids what they want for Christmas....

Her songs always make us smile!

the tree

Put a tree up.
My hubby really hates the tree or any thing up before Thanksgiving is over but to me the season starts with the the giving of thanks being the beginning of the Christ-mas~ 2 month season!
This is the kids tree with lots of snowmen, santas, not breakable green and red ornaments!
Actually the salt dough ornaments are the most breakable but they were really fun to make last year so I hope they last a while! This poor tree is crooked with being knocked down twice by my cat... uh... I mean JUJU! I wish my babes would figure out not to touch and not to try and go behind it. SIGH! It still is fun to look at even if 5 ornaments are hanging on the same branch or that it leans to the one side or that it daily has a small makeover.

Baby Pictures

Took the family to the clinic to see our new baby
The baby was at first facing mommy's back and so we couldn't see the face.
We saw the technician measure the head, belly, legs and arms, look for kidneys, lungs, stomach and the heart.
We saw all the 4 chambers of the heart.
We all listened to the heart beat.
Juju got bored quickly. She wanted to decorate the door with stickers.
Then later after all the measuring we got to see the face.
Then the tech took a look and we discovered this.
