Shane (orange jacket) and her roommate Meg, came out to get their christmas tree today. Tyler and I joined them on their trek along with Banjo and Shane's new dog, Poppy. We had a lovely walk and the girls picked out two cute trees, one for their apartment and one for Shane's parents home. The balsam trees smell so good right now -
Our little "Squirt McGert" is growing like a weed. She met Banjo for the first time yesterday and had her first adventure just outside the back doors of the barn while Mom had a drink in the big cow tub. She's such a sweetheart and so much fun to watch. She ran and jumped and kicked up her heels in the alley of the barn. She really likes it when we clean her stall as Mom is being milked. She has the entire 10x10 room to herself and doesn't she race around :)
Tomorrow is supposed to be 50 degrees. If it's not raining I'll let her out in the back barnyard with Jan for a little while. Jan is giving a ton of milk and tomorrow I'll keep milk for the house. It will be sooooo wonderful to have fresh milk instead of buying it from the store. I am thoroughly enjoying milking again and will be making butter by wednesday. Christmas definitely came early for me!
~ wishing you all a relaxing sunday~
