Long time, no see

We've been having a wonderful winter break here on the Hay Farm! We'll be back soon! I have lots of pictures of our snow (yes, snow!) to show you!

It's the most wonderful time of the year

And I'm not talking about Christmas. Here on the Hay Farm, the most wonderful time of the year is when the baby goats start arriving!

There are six here so far. Three boys and three girls. A seventh baby was lost. It's mama was new and the kid was too large for her to deliver. We think the mama will be fine, though.

These two were just born this morning. One boy and one girl.


They have the absolute cutest faces!


I love to snuggle with the new babies!


So far, all six are healthy and eating. They all have great mamas. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we don't have any goat 9-1-1 this year!

It's a bird! It's a plane!

It's Super...Oh, ok. So it is a just a bird and a plane. Nothing superhuman about our Thanksgiving. Just lots of turkey eating and plane flying.


Did I go up in the plane, you ask. Are you kidding me?? You won't get me up in one of those flying death machines. That's what kids are for. So I can experience these things vicariously. (I kid, I kid. The plane was perfectly safe. I'm just a big, fat chicken. Or was it a turkey?)

This is the point that I had to go back inside. I couldn't watch knowing I had kids up there. Not to mention the fact that it was cold and windy and I'm a wimp.


Look at that cotton field! Can we say major allergies?


Despite the fact that I don't like to fly in little puddle jumpers, the view is pretty awesome.


I think that might be a lake. Let's just say if that's a pond, they were flying way too close to the ground.


And here they are back safely. And aren't they cute? The two girls had just met the day before, but by the end of the flight, they were BFFs. Near death experiences are funny that way.


Did y'all do anything out of the ordinary for Thanksgiving?

Snow Day!

Snow in this part of Texas is always such an unbelievable sight.


And of course it never lasts long enough to really enjoy.


So I knew I had to snap some pics before it all melted away.


And I just about froze my hiney to do it! But I couldn't let the snow get away without showing it to y'all! Enjoy the day!
