Okay.  Sorry everyone that this post took so long.  Christmas was over half a week ago, but better late than never, right?  Anyway, here is the start of my post:

  Ahh, the bliss of Christmas morning; your eyes fly open and suddenly you remember:  It's Christmas!!  You throw the covers aside, and rush out of your room, run straight to the kitchen, grab a bottle of formula, s start feeding the crying baby goats by the counter, head to the tree to open presents...  Wait a minute, feed goats in your kitchen?  Since when was that part of normal Christmas morning?  For us, as of last Christmas Eve. 
    Julia and I sat out in the very cold on a very, very cold cement floor watching a mother goat in labor.  This goat, Lacy, had given birth to stillborn babies twice and this was her third time giving birth.  So Julia and I watched her and timed the contractions.  Then my mom came out and we all sat, and waited.  Finally the baby started to come.  And he was coming backwards, back feet first, which messes everything up.  But the baby was coming anyway, so Mom pulled and Lacy pushed and I prayed.  And we got him out and it was so cold, so wet, and so alive.  I wrapped a ton of blankets around him and cleared his nose and mouth and breathed in his nose and called aloud to God to keep him alive.  And I turned and looked and Mom was holding another one.  So I breathed in that ones nose and they both coughed and were breathing.  Tears were streaming down both my mom and I's cheeks and we were crying out praises to the LORD.  It was the most stressful and spirit lifting experience I had this year I think.  But it was totally worth it for these little guys:  (Note; these were taken right after they were born; less than an hour.  I have more recent pictures, but I can't access them right now and that is a different post anyway. =) Enjoy)

    Aren't they darling?  =)  I love them to pieces <3  So right now they are in a tub by our front door, and every so often we have to get up and feed them.  But they are really, really sweet.  The one with all the spots is a girl, named Holly.  The other one (In the last picture) is the boy named Isaiah.

  Alrighty, moving on.  Next, I'm going to go through some of the stuff I got for Christmas.  I've never done this before, but I decided just to do it for fun.  Enjoy! =)

I have recently learned how to crochet scarves, but this one was done actually by a daughter of a friend.  There is an elderly lady that Julia and I go and see, and this lady's daughter does beautiful sewing work.  So she made scarves for each of us kids.  They are beautiful.
 Dunkin' Donuts!!!  (No explaination needed) Plus, it says Joy.  =D
 If you have not tried these, you need to get a hold of some.  They are pecans covered in caramel, covered in chocolate.  How can you go wrong?
Nancy Drew video games are awesome!  You act as Nancy Drew and solve the case, so it is super fun.  Plus the graphics are awesome.  You collect clues, talk to people, solve puzzles, and try to decide what to do next.  If you can, you can look up "Nancy Drew Game Trailers" or something along those lines and watch some of the trailers.  They are pretty awesome.

I think that www.herinteractive.com even has the official trailers.  You might want to check that out before heading to YouTube.  You can buy them almost everywhere.  Walmart and most office supplie stores that have video games, like Office Depot, have them.  You can even order them online at the link above, either as a physical copy or by just downloading it.  If you have any questions, just ask me.  =)


 The I got a spa kit from my aunt.  It is really cute. 

And the kit came with slippers, so I am now a proud owner of sheep slippers.  Haha.  They are really fuzzy though.  =D


 Next I just got some stickers...
 And some perfume.  The stuff in the white box is really, really pretty.  I love it. 
 I also got this gift set which also includes perfume.  This smells nice too!

And the crowning glory...

 An mp3 player!  My old one was kaput (See below)
 Yeah, kinda hard to chose the song when you can't SEE anything!  Haha.  Look at the screen on the new one:
 Check it out, man!  I can see the songs!  =)  Haha
And that's all.  It's quite a bit, a lot more then I thought, and I loved everything.  What did you guys all get?  I hope you liked it! 

Sorry again for how long it took to get this post published.  It's almost New Year! 
*Oh, No, I have ONE more day to do the pictures for my challenge!  AHH!* ;)

Toddles, and Happy New Year!  =)



  1. Hey. Sounds like you had a fun and let's say interesting Christmas. They are so cute and I am glad they are safe and sound ! I especially love Holly ! Very Christmassy name and cute and unique markings ! You got some great things for Christmas and let's say it think you deserve and need them. Especially the MP3 player. I mean... It's pretty useless when it is like that ! The sheep slippers are so cute but how fitting would goat ones be !?

    1. The babies are cute! WE actually have one more, but she was born a few days before and she is with her mama out in the barn. Holly's markings are very unique! We have never seen a goat like that before. I very much needed a new mp3 player! I'm very glad I got one. And I never thought about goat slippers! Haha! I wonder if they even make such a thing. OH! What if the slippers had long ears, like our goats! Those would be so cute!! =D

  2. I love goats! We haven't had any for a few years though. :( YOU LIKE NANCY DREW TO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome! I own all the Nancy Drew books and most of the computer games!

    1. All the books? Like all the original novels? AWESOME!! When can I come to your house? haha ;) I own the first 7 I think, but then total I think we have about 15 because we have some old books that my mom owned. But they are just random, not in order. I only have...6 (?) of the games. I have one that I haven't finished. Us kids like to put our heads together and figure them out. They really make you think!


Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you think! I love comments; they always make my day, and they are what makes blogging worthwhile! =)
