So we've had some happy and sad news from my dear grandparents. Joe and Leona have always had cows. Not too many, but they are a huge part of my grandparent's lives. Recently my girls were staying the night at my dad and step-mama's house. They just so happen to live right next door to my grandparents so it's always fun to get to visit all of them at the same time. Early in the morning little sis and my dad were on a walk in the field hunting for moles when they came across grandma cow. Grandma cow has been around for ages and when my dad saw her laying down motionless he feared the worst. After telling little sis what might be going on she reassured her gramp that she wanted to go with him to see, no matter what the outcome. When they got close they noticed that grandma cow was not only alive, but that she had had a baby in the night! Holy cow! I know, nice choice of words, thank you. Nobody even knew she was expecting and we were all so exited at the news. But sad too. It was all too much for the old gal and she wouldn't recover. So now my grandparents have their new baby to care for, named Miracle Nuisance. I was thinking something like Oliver would fit him well. But he is a little miracle, and a nuisance, so it fits too. When he was just three days old we went to help with a feeding. Animal loving little sis was in heaven.
Let me tell ya, grandma loves her baby. He's a little doll.
He's a spunky little guy too, biting pants, sucking on available fingers, jumping around.
Did I mention little sis was in heaven?
Mr. ACQ likes the baby too.
See you next time little baby! Now who is mooing outside the barn? Let's look around the corner....
Oh! It's aunties and cousins I think. Very concerned about the new baby. So sweet.
I have to mention before I go.... wow. Thank you all sooooo much for your wonderful comments about my sewing room! It makes me so happy that you all like it! I know I have some emails and questions to answer and I promise I'll get around to it. We use dvd's for our homeschool curriculum and since big sis's computer is broken at the moment she's on mine all day. Then evening rolls around and there are after school happenings, dinner, laundry, pulling my hair out, all the usual stuff. As I'm typing this my gal is patiently waiting to start her school day. So I best be on my merry little way to the breakfast dishes.
Oh! Real quick, I've also been working on my Christmas Cottage quilt and wanted to post some pictures of the quilt top put together. But it's still on the design wall waiting to be put together. I'll show it to you anyway! I'm working on the sashing. Little red stars with white centers. I can't wait to have this sewn together! Have a great day friends. x
