Say Cheese!

Sage learned how to climb up on the table. She got into the fridge, my lock broke, and got into some shredded cheese. Then she rolled around in it for a while, then laid down. She is the funniest little girl ever, and the most trouble.

Playing with the Puppies

The girls love playing with the puppies. Every day Savannah goes and gets a puppy and brings it into play. I am trying to get her to play with all of them because she is getting attached. Vannah has named her sweetie pie, and we are not suppose to name the puppies, we would keep them all. Anyway every day Vannah ask me if she can keep this puppy.

We had a great Easter this year, we went down to Pocatello and went to church with Grandma and Grandpa Nelson. It was such a beautiful day we played outside all day, the girls loved the egg hunt.

Twinkle and Star

The Ladies have arrived. Savannah finally found some milk goats, we have been looking the past month and she settled on these two lovely ladies. Savannah has wanted a milk goat for about two years now, we told her she could get one when she saved enough money, well she did that a while ago but we didn't tell her. Well any way Brian can't just get one of anything so he had to get one for him and Adeila as well. Savannah and Dell were sitting at the table trying to come up with names, brownie and sally and all the babydolls that we own are named Sally, so I said try to think of better names than that. So they came up with Twinkle and Star. Twinkle is the one with the brown and She is Vannah's, she picked her because she is hoping that she has twins. Dell's is Star the white one.

We had a beautiful Rexburg spring day, we were outside doing chores and checking on the animals. I was feeding the dogs and Brian was feeding the cows, he asked Savannah to turn on the water and water the cows. So she watered the cows and well you can see what happened next. It was about 5 o'clock and only about 45 degress out but the kids had a great time playing in the mud and really cold water.

The puppies are here!

We have been waiting and waiting for Eloise to have her puppies. She was huge so I thought that she would have them early but she waited until her due date. This has been her biggest litter she had ten puppies and they all are doing well. We have 6 males and 4 females and its are first litter to have mahogany pups so that's been exciting.

Sara and the new calf.

We were in the kitchen and Brian looked out the window toward the pasture and said "that cow is fixin to calve." We all went to see and sure enough the baby was coming. We came back inside and about 30 minutes later Brian and Vannah went to check on Sara and got there just in time to watch. Sara and her baby girl are doing great, In the above pictures the calf is only a minute or two old and still slimy. The girls are working on a name. Brian just bought two heifers yesterday and they are now, Holly, and Beth. So now we have Sara, Rebecca, Holly, Beth, and T-bone. Savannah just told me her name is Trixy.

Baby Chicks

Well, 21 days at 99.5 degrees and 65% humidity caused our eggs in the incubator to hatch. The wet slimy little monsters climbed out of their shells and now carry on with voracious appetites and happy little cheeps. We've sold most of the this first group but we have another 60 eggs due to start hatching tomorrow then another 60 four days later. We also have to duck eggs that when candled appeared promising. The girls and Brian have enjoyed the process.
