Mother’s Day

Guess what I got for Mother’s Day?

First, my oldest son made me breakfast in bed. He makes great scrambled eggs. Since my baby was in bed with me at the time (3yo’s are still considered babies, are too, are too, are too) he thought it was 3yo Day and ate most of my breakfast.
Then, just as I was snuggling back in to bed to sleep a bit more, my oldest son came running up the steps (with muddy shoes) yelling, “BABIES! Sophie is having babies!”

Here is Sophie, having babies on Mother’s Day. I am the proud owner of three new barn kitties. Sophie’s sister, Mia, acted as midwife and helped keep the kitties warm. Mia is due to have kittens any day now too. I’m sorry, but I think these are about the ugliest cats alive…sorry girls.

And then my family gave me flowers.
May I introduce to you Tulip and Daisy. Uh, excuse me, I was expecting the flowers that grow in the ground. Hello? Hello? Flowers? These look a bit like pigs to me. Hello? Anyone?
Two pigs and a Breakfast Hog.

Son, please don’t fall in the pig pen. Son?

Tulip, Daisy and Levi, the three little pigs on our homestead.
Coming up next on April Showers: Preacher, the Congregation and the Choir. And how we built a chicken coop for $17 and a pig pen for $29. AND…what we names our homestead and why! It’s all so darn fascinating, really I don’t kid about farm stuff.
