December and a bit of January

There have been sooo many things happen in December that I did not have time to post, looking back its hard to remember everything! Mom was in and out of the hospital with pneumonia and since mom is a little afraid of being alone I stayed at the hospital with her only leaving to run home and take care of the animals and make sure everything was running well without me there...then back to the hospital. I do have good news Mom has been home this week and so far so good :) we are focusing on her getting her strength back this is also why (with the flue going around) we are planing on staying home and hopefully prevent her from getting this so soon after her bout with pneumonia. Here is a bit happiness from December

My little niece and nephew were also born in December :)

This is Libby she was born 12/5/12

This is Blake he was born 12/12/12
My Mom is on the left (Great Gma) and  my sister
on the right (Grandma) this was taken a week
before Mom got sick.
They are both doing great! We also had a few births here on the farm Ellie had a little girl and she was born 12/24/12 so her name is easy we decided to call her Noel, I liked Eve but we already have an Eve. Ellie is our Dexter and the little ones father is an Angus so we have our first Dangus (love that word) :)
She was only a few hours old in this picture I used the zoom
because I didnt want to upset Ellie.
We also have one birth so far for January this is Bella's baby (her first calf) and she did so good!
She also was only a few hours old when I took this picture, the
difference though is Bella's one of my pets so she let me walk
up to her calf to take the picture :)
We have also had a problem with coyotes the past few weeks, we usually see a few here and there and sometimes they come to close to the house for my comfort! The past week though we think they have a den close to the house (we found a place that looks like they are using) and since its mating season we can step out anytime after 6:00pm and hear them its almost like in a horror story, they sound sooo close and its at least 15 t0 20 of them. I am not worried as long as they leave our animals alone and they will calm down in a bit, it does make me jump though when I have to fill up the outside wood stove at night now and since we have had a few days of single digits it seems like I am our there more than normal! :)
 Just to be safe though I have Snowflake, Ellie and Bella and their babies in the barn lot so I can keep an eye on them. I am sure there have been other happenings here on the farm, but I am hard pressed to remember them all.


  1. Cute babies, especially the people ones. Love babies, oh my!

    Where we live in a residential area coyotes walk behind our home and on the street in front of us! Not frequently but we hear them when they hunt and it is against the law to kill them so pet owners and others need to be on guard (constantly).

    I am glad you are back posting, I missed you...

    1. I know I could not kill them either. Thanks I am glad to have time to post again.

  2. Sending get well wishes to your mom. Will say prayers for her also. Babies are so cute! But, I like the animal ones better! Glad you're back posting.

    1. Thanks for the well wishes and sooo much for the prayers! Cant wait for winter to be over! :)

  3. I'm happy to hear your Mother is doing better and has gone home to finish her recovery. My family will keep your Mother in our prayers. Congratulations on the new little precious babies in your family.


Please leave a comment, would love to hear from you :)
