Christmas Eve

Feeling blessed for such a lovely snowy Christmas Eve morning on the farm! We were up "dark and early" with a cow to milk, barns to clean, and a demanding group of "staaaarviiinnggg!" critters to feed. The snow makes chores a bit more difficult, but it is just so gorgeous! Reflecting on the perfect, unfathomable love that we were shown when Jesus gave up everything to be born in a humble stable and take on our sins and the sins of the whole world. I love barns and animals, but what a crazy place for the King of Kings to be born! Thank you Jesus! <3

The sweet Dexter heifers.

Rosie doing her tongue tricks!

Can you spot the ragmuffin mop?

Crazy wild milk cow Lola!

These are my four little special needs kids.  The cow Clara and alpaca Marv need some extra feed and care so they will hopefully gain some weight.  The cottonballs in the middle (Ginger and Thifi) are heavily pregnant and need extra feed for all those babies!
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. So enjoyed your wonderful pictures! I also loved your ponderings (as you work with your crazy animals in the barn) about the King of kings and Lord of lords coming to us in such a humble way . . in a stable. That is so neat that you were able to meditate on that thought as you went about your work on such a special day.
    Thanks for sharing! Love your photos and writing! Please keep it up! : -)
    Love you so much!

  2. Loved seeing all the pictures of the animals in the snow:) SO beautiful:)
