The boys got to tell Santa what they wanted at our ward Christmas party. Heres Baby Boots trying to look around. (4 months old)
John Wayne (2 years old) was really scared to sit with Santa. But he did it after all his brothers did.

Of course Jr. Red (4 years old) was the first to sit on his lap. Need I say more?...

T. T. (6 years old) was second to see Santa. I think they all told him that they wanted Transformers for Christmas. Its funny cause they have Transformers already...

I am so greatful expecially this year for our warm home. On Monday our breaker poped, so MyLove turuned it back on and we heard a huge pop in the kitchen. We looked where it came from and one of the outlets was extremely HOT! So we fliped the breaker back off and let the outlet cool off. A litte later MyLove unscrewed the outlet and found it had been toasted! Luckly out house didn't start on fire. That is one of the main causes for house fires. So we changed that one a checked a few others for faults. I dont want to ask Santa for a new house this year!

The Herd or should I say Flock?

Heres Peanut and her 2 babies. Along with Sweet Cream down by the fence.
This picture is my prime milker, Ginger. Shes the best goat that we have. Eventhough she has horns, she is so gentle and loves to be pet by the kids.

This is Ginger and the baby she had this year, Zena. MyLoves dad loves the baby cause she so nice like her mom. She also is the only goat that the horses like. She can play and eat right under their bellies.

Here is Sweet Cream, the goat Brooke raised, and the 2 other white babies Peanut had this year.
The babies got named by the neighbors, Mike and Mary. But I prefer not to name ones that we will butcher. Goat meat is one of the healthest red meat you can eat. So is goat milk. It truely saved John Wayne, from his asthma. He loves warm, "freshly squeezed" milk now.

Back in the back is the seventh goat we had pastured out in Vernon. She is a pigmy goat that MyLoves cousin gave to us. Since she is so little all the other goats pick on her. So we will sell her soon for someone else to enjoy.

3 months

Heres Baby Boots at 3 months. He is sitll a good boy, thanks goodness, we don't need another thing to go crazy about. He always has his eyes wide and alert and doesn't miss a thing. Just wish he would grow some hair, he he. He still so darn cute!

Cookie Monster

John Wayne decided he wanted to help me make cookies. I tried a couple times to help him stir it and he said, "No! Me do it me self!" Ok, he still loved helping and did a great job.
