Small Blessings




Yesterday, when I went out to the barn, I found these two little critters cleaned up, standing, and eating from their proud Mama, Pebbles. I think they have got to be the cutest things on the planet. As is their cousin, Adonis. These two will be Athena & Bachhus, as we carry on with names alphabetically. Athena was 12 lbs, Bacchus 13.5 lbs. Athena has a brown polka dot on her behind, and Bacchus has multicolored ears. Their little tails wiggle as they eat.

Adonis is growing by leaps, bounds, and jumps straight up in the air. He is sorting out his place with the other sheeple, who were particularly miffed because all the visitors to our little farm came to see *him*, rather than them. (Anemarie is just a *Bit of a Diva* and is used to mugging for the camera.) We’ve gone to greater lengths to assure both Anemarie & Helena that they are indeed, extraordinarily lovely ladies, and that they are still just as special to us. (Anthropomorphism thrives here.)

I’ve spent much of my time in the barn, tidying up & keeping an eye on everybody, which means Christmas packages are unwrapped. But the cards are done. Mostly.

Ana Marie's nose isn't too bent out of shape. She still likes to pose for the camera.

Danny, Gary, and my parents all say congratulations on the new arrivals!
