This past weekend Little Miss Farmgirl decided to share her princess crown with Roo.
He seemed to like it. Here he is smiling up at her:
Several minutes later I got a hearty laugh when I found this! Still in his princess crown, he's been joined by a baby dolly in her "crown"- a canning funnel. LOL!
Isn't this neat. Our water pump was left dripping overnight and this is how my teen son found it this morning. The water had dripped down and created a mini stalagmite!
Hmm. Remind me not to leave the bread out unattended. (Those are finger pokes made by a curious child)
A boy and his goofy dog who enjoys a good belly scratch.
I told Smiley and Monkey that I wanted to take a picture of them in the lovely sunshine. This is how they showed up- with sticks and rocks and silly faces. ;)
When not enjoying good old fashioned play with sticks and rocks, they had fun with a homemade see saw, balanced on a roll of barbed wire fencing and a stump used for chicken head chopping off.
Is this too gory for a family-friendly farming blog? I love this picture because you can see exactly how the boys feel about plucking goose for dinner: Artist (on the right) doesn't like getting his hands "messy", with feathers, mud, paper mache, you name it. That's his "ew." face. LOL Monkey (on the left) on the other hand, loves it very much!
On a side note, I don't think there can be found a more attractive man than one with hay and goose feathers stuck in his beard and mud on his knees at the end of the day. I sure love my husband. ;)
Here's that goofy dog again. There might be endless comfy, clean countryside around but he'd rather smoosh his face into a heap of composting cow manure and straw for a morning nap.
I've never seen something like this before. I've just noticed that our 2 month old has this very interesting color strip in his eye! Can you see it in the pictures? His eyes are darkening, surely to become brown like his siblings (and dad), but there's a strip of whitish-blue there in his right eye. It wasn't there until recently. It seems to be forming there while the rest of his eye is darkening? Isn't that weird/neat?
I wonder if it will stay?
And that's the summary of our simple yet busy weekend. :) Oh, not including the turkey babies that have been exploding from the incubator these past few days! That's been super fun. I should get a post up about the babies showing up here lately... We've got 5 lambs so far! They are sooo cute!
