It begins.....

It seems that everyone and their dog has a blog of their own, and after starting one several times, I finally have finished putting our family blog together. So here it begins with my first post.

We are all getting spring fever, and can't wait for the mud to dry up, I will be especially exited when the mud is gone, with 2 kids (Aiden, wishes he was :) ), 2 dogs and a hubby, going in and out the back door a hundred times a day, it is impossible to keep the floors clean. And I have a hard time keeping them clean to start with, lol.

Aiden, loves to stand at the back windows and look out at the animals. I think his most favorite of all of them that we have is the cows. He loves the cows. Whenever he sees them, he will holler out a big "moo". It is so funny. When McKinley and Dallin got home from school today, we put his shoes and coat on and let him go out in the back with them, and he had a hayday!! We had to drag him in kicking and screaming, literally. :)

We got a new member of the family. Dallin got a new bunny for his birthday from Grandpa Jack & Grandma Sherry. He is so dang cute!! Solid black and so soft. His name is Blackjack. He fits right in with the rest of the animals on our little farm. lol.

That puts our total animal count up to 2 cows, our dexters, with one on the way, Hurricane and Patience. Patience is going to have a calf in April or beginning of May, we can't wait for that!! 2 dogs, Molly & Lilly, 3 Pygmy Goats, Millie, Ellie, Lucie, 4 cats, Kitty, Socks, Mittens & Milo, and 12 chickens, 2 roosters and 10 hens, and we are placing an order for about 20 more chickens here in the next few weeks. So with the additions of Blackjack we have a total of 24 animals. WooHoo!!! Anyone want to join us at our funny farm??
