Signs of spring are everywhere here in the south! The trees are all in bloom, the grass is bright green, the goats have started kidding, and there is a dusting of pollen everywhere!
This is our Nubian "Licorice". She was the first to have babies this year and she gave us triplets. We sold the girl and are hoping to sell the two boys soon!
I love this Bradford pear tree! McKenzie and Matthew planted another Bradford pear on our property the summer that my mom died. We thought we had lost it that summer but it is doing great now! It looks like it has grown a foot since last year!
Macheus got busted for getting into Madeline's purse! She has had TWO brand new Burt's Bees lipsticks ruined by this little booger lately.
The hens are all laying again. They went on strike during some of the cold winter. So glad to have our own eggs again. It was really hard to pay over $4.50 for "not so fresh" eggs from the grocery store! We laughed when I brought a carton home and it had poop on it! :o)
Myles.... always dressed like a cowboy!
His favorite one liners these days: "No!" "I do it!" "I dunna dit you!" (I'm gonna get you.) "How you?" (How are you?) He is a mess and definitely keeps us on our toes these days!
Madeline working Candy after she has had a long lazy winter eating!
Very thankful for this new friend of ours that is a horse trainer/ riding instructor. She is helping the girls with Candy and trying to help us find another horse to buy. The girls are wanting to ride together now that Mariah has gotten older.
Marc, Matthew and Malachi just got back from a camping trip this evening. We had quite an adventure while they were gone. It is late so I will save that story for another post! I took the kids to town for supper tonight (love Barberitos kids night!) and the guys got home before we did. I got a text from Matthew that said, "You guys didn't tell us that we had more goats." While we were out another goat, "Ivy" had twins.... one boy and one girl. Matt and Madeline just headed out to the barn for a late night feeding. This is a fun but VERY busy time of year for us!
~Until next time!
