Well, it's been a while since I posted...as usual. summer, fall, pregnancy...all flew by. Now it's winter, almost December, and my, how things have changed.
The crazy farm has grown. In October, we were given 2 Toggenberg does, 2 year old twins. Sweet gals, and then a couple days later, their good buddy, a Jacob ewe, came to join them. She was so lonely without them that we were asked if we would like her, too. We're so glad we said yes, she's just the sweetest thing. Then, early november, we were given 2 horses! Both Arabian geldings, from 2 different people. The kids are just loving this, and learning a lot along the way.
But the most exciting addition (to me, at least, lol) is our newest baby. Jack was born on 11/12, at 10lbs 6oz. He's a real snuggle baby, spending most of his time in the mei tai carrier, or in someones arms. Nurses well, sleeps well (snuggled in my arms, lol), makes plenty of diapers.
So...with luck, I can get to posting more. I always say that, but it rarely happens. Maybe, instead of only posting when I have something "interesting" to say...I should just use it like a diary and post every day, and hope something interesting HAPPENS, lol!
So, today...we are starting to get back to routine. I love cold weather. Makes me want to cook. Lunch was easy, ramen and hot cocoa. Made triple chocolate cookies (chocolate batter with white and chocolate chips) for snack. Made a double batch of MY cocoa for the fridge (the kids are happy with powdered stuff, but not I. I drink from scratch only!). Made a batch of cranberry sauce...because it sounds good. Sliced the meat and mixed up the au jus for tonights french dip sandwiches, from Saturdays roast beef (instructions at the end).
