Happy Birthday Brooks!

Brooks is TWO years old today! Seriously, time flies! He has left the “baby” stage and turned into a full blown 2 year old! And all that goes with it. He is a mess!

He LOVES gummies, cars(he said, “vroom, vroom” in his sleep the other night!), tractors, bubbles, balls, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, running away from us as fast as possible at the ballpark and lots of other little boy things! :)

Here he is this morning…IMG_20150422_072306 And last night at the ballpark climbing the fence!IMG_20150421_185421

Happy Happy Birthday B! We love you SO much!

Here comes the Bride!

My baby sister got hitched on Saturday!!! Eeekkss! It was a beautiful wedding and everything went according to plan, which was fabulous since there was an almost TWO year old in the wedding party! ;)

I wanted to share a few pictures, I’m sure there will be more once the photographer finishes! Reece was the flower girl, Brooks was the ring bearer, I was the matron of honor and Griffin and Peyton were escorts!

Meet Trixie!

We finally found Foxy a new friend! I trolled Craigslist like a crazy lady until I found one!

She’s almost solid black and has some beautiful baby blue eyes!!

I was a tiny bit worried at first. I saw her picture and started texting the man that had her. He told me about her and that he owns her parents and that she just had a baby that he sold a week ago. I fell in love with her and we set up a time to meet. Well, for Hubs to meet. AND THEN he proceeded to tell me that she’s not very friendly, she won’t come up to you AT ALL and is very skittish.

Well, crap.

Josh went to get her anyway. While he was there the man told him that she also likes to escape. Double crap. He brought her home anyway. He said that their pen was rickety and ours is not so he didn’t think she would be able to get out.

At first Foxy chased her around like a crazy kangaroo. She would jump up on her hind legs and kick the front ones. Poor new goat. Then after a day or so they were used to each other and now they are friends!

Just two days after we got her she was already eating out of my hand! I think she’s going to be just fine, she just needed a little attention! :)IMG_20150401_192355_resizedNow our goal is to find a male so WE CAN MAKE BABY GOATS!!!!!!

PS-I turned 33 Wednesday! OLD LADY STATUS!

Tubes(again!) for B!

Last May, Brooks got tubes in his ears. About 6 months or so ago one of the tubes started making it’s way out and he started having problems again. If you’ve never had a child with ear infections well, they are horrible. And now that he can talk he would say, “eah hut.” Talk about hurting my heart! Pitiful! Over the last 5 weeks he was on 3 different antibiotics to treat ear infections, none of which cleared them up. Back to the ENT we went and got tubes the very next day!

Here we are before they took him back. It was not as easy this time as it was the first time. Mainly because he is a year older! When we were in the holding area the nurses desk was directly in front of his bed and it had a box of doughnuts on it. He recognized the Krispy Kreme box quickly and kept saying, “Nonut PEEZE.”

IT.WAS.PITIFUL.

He’s used to eating way earlier and was so hungry! I felt so bad.

He was more ill when waking up this time around, which we expected. After we were discharged, I got him something to eat and we headed home where he took a THREE hour nap! He woke up feeling fabulous and we went to eat at Taco Casa before Peyton’s ballgame!

So glad he’s feeling better!

Roxy

A few weeks ago our sweet Roxy passed away. When the vet called to tell me she didn’t make it all I could do was cry. To the point that the lady on the phone was like, “I am SO SO SO sorry. Just call us back. ”  20141024_171700_resized

It was bad.

She escaped from the goat yard the day before-she and Foxy have NEVER escaped-and one of our dogs attacked her. A stray that we had taken in. He had also killed several chickens. He is no longer an issue. That’s all I know about that.

Our entire household was sad. We haven’t found another goat yet but we are on the lookout for sure! Goats do not like to be alone so we need to find Foxy a friend SOON! 20141004_133615_resized

However, we DID get new baby chicks!IMG_20150209_162911

And a few days later….baby DUCKS!!!!! EEEKKKK!IMG_20150214_164302The ducks make us SMILE! They waddle around with all their little ducky cuteness! 

Welcome to the farm! :)
