Things I am thankful for today...

55. Clean windows. and cleaning them. It is such an enjoyable thing.
56. Cleaning the bathroom. Really. I do enjoy it.
(and yes, I do know I am a little odd.)

57. Triplets! This is very soon after they were born. As you might be able to tell by the after birth hanging there. I am sorry about that. But they are sure cute!

58. Warm weather.... T-shirt weather!!

59. Enjoying the little things. Like how it looks like his legs are crossed but actually his boots are on the wrong feet. and that I am wearing flip flops. I like being able to wear them without my toes freezing.

60. Clean sweet smelling floors. Even if they don't last for a long time. They are so worth it.
61. Enjoyable times to be had with the little guy who wears those shoes.

62. Warm spring breezes.
63. Freshly washed curtains.

64. This smell. I love lilacs. I suspect Anna brought it up last time they were here.
I am really enjoying it. :)

65. This smell too. Mmmmmm....
66. The taste wasn't too bad either.

67. Fun stuff on Luke's computer.
68. Both Luke and Luke. :) I like them.

69. Getting to see Peter, Holly, Nic and Jaten. I'm so excited!

Another Oreo.

I would like you to meet Oreo.
At first Oreo wasn't eating, so Dad had to give him a bottle.
Now Oreo is eating fine from his mommy.
Isn't Oreo cute?

Buster found a spot that really works well for him. I am not sure why he doesn't just come in all the way. :)

The Whirlwind. Random pictures and stories.

So, for a while we really had a spring. Blue skies and warm weather ( well, 50s)
The goats are finally starting to deliver. This is onyx. She looks kinda uncomfortable. Mara says that it looks like she is about ready to have her babies. so maybe today :)
*edit* She delivered 2 beautiful boys. They are brown.

on the way to church the other evening, it was very lovely out and perfect for taking pictures.
I like this picture. Even though my hand looks malformed.
The picture makes me think though, I should wash the windows and mirrors in Luke's truck. :)

We have been tapping the maple trees. There is one batch right now that is about done boiling down outside. Then we will bring it in and boil it down some more and then can it.
Abbi is here right now helping with keeping the fire going.

Tuesday was Dad's birthday. we went to the Cobb's house. and like at Mara's birthday party we were entertained with a circus. That is the ring master on the left and the clown on the right.

This is Megan while Dad was reading her card. and opening the presents. :)

Birthday cake. Chocolate cake with a fluffy meringue type frosting with a mocha flavor.

Dad and Mom.
on Dad's 60th birthday.
Sunday evening we had a Bonfire at church. I like this picture of Abbi.

Irindee, H. and Lucas. Luke sure does like the babies. :)

The other evening it was just so lovely out so I took the four wheeler for a ride on the back 40. The creek was really full.

Piper and Lucas, seizing the day. :)

Zombie heads.

Well. We like to distort ourselves. what can I say? :) I am not sure what I was saying "no" about. So excuse that. :)

Happy Thursday!

Oreos. Sorta.

I think it would be OK to lower the sugar in both recipes, Since combining them made it almost too sweet.
And they are best refrigerated since the frosting kinda squishes out when it isn't cold.

I love spring! Right now we have blue skies, Mud, Sun and Baby goats.
I have been trying to convince the still expectant (goat)mothers that today is the day to have their babies. but so far they haven't complied. I wonder if there is some kind of way to induce goats labor. :)
Buster is having fun chasing baby goats when they get out and of course his favorite past time, Chasing rocks.

The Billy goats are also feeling the warm air and fighting. I think that is how boys have fun sometimes. ;)

These are our 2 baby goats. Duluth and Dallas.
Daisy, Dallas's twin died a week ago. We are not sure why.

Splashing is pretty much fun. A lot of fun. I don't know why, but it is true. I do it every chance I get.

We might not be over with winter yet but I am sure enjoying this little spring while we have it. and maybe, just maybe winter won't come back until November.
Love, Keren

The Trip.

I am back. well. I have been back since Sunday.
But this is what I saw, among other things.
It was a very very fun and exciting trip.
Being with some very fun people and seeing where so much history was made.
I will probably post more pictures at a later date.
