~ Lace fools us all.....

Lace on Friday, April 10th

What do you think, Triplets ? Quads ?

Twin doelings!! This is what we found when we went to the barn early this morning. What a great way to start the day. All delivered, dried off and eating their first meal and, of course, adorable :) They are going to be caramel color like Papa Amos, the angora. They are average size. Mama goat is fine. She had her warm molasses water and now they are all having a nap. I think the lesson I'm supposed to learn here is that I have really fat goats! Four doelings this year out of four babies. I'm certainly happy with that.

The gem theme didn't work well - we ran out of options quickly if we wanted to use the first letter of the Mother goats name. We didn't think about it too hard this morning - Tom suggested Lemon and Lime and I thought it was perfect :)

My DH brought me home this lovely Easter lily that adorns my table and the smell greeted me this morning as I made my coffee. They are gorgeous this year. A favorite of mine and I look forward to having one each year. It has several unopened blossoms and should last a couple of weeks.


.....and he also brought home this sweet little pair (dubbed Horace and Milley) (nick names for Hubby and myself) that now hang on the front door. Aren't they cute?

I love the spring decorations and the Easter holiday. - to me it is a time of new life, hope, spring flowers and sunshine. The sun really is warmer and green is popping up here and there. Now if the wind would stop blowing :)

~Have a great day ~

But it was such a good fooling!! I would take twin does over triplet bucks anytime:) What a wonderful way to start the week off! Your lily and chicken basket makes a very welcoming center piece! I so agree with what spring brings to us.....a time to start fresh!

We have having the same wind problem in WI. Darling little kids. You are right, I would be happy with twin girl anythings.

I just thought FORSURE you would have triplets there, but two are nice. Really nice, easier to take care of.

Happy Easter

If I'd betted on Lace, I would have lost a lot fo money. Glad all are fine.

You are lucky, it's been a buck year for many folks around here.

Lemon and Lime - that's amazing. I'm as stunned as you though, that that belly didn't hold at least four!
