Lucy's Anniversary surprise



Today was our wedding anniversary, and Hubby took off from work with the intention of us taking a nice little day trip and do some sightseeing.

Lucy, however, had other things in mind....

We've known Lucy was getting close to lambing so she has been in the barn for three days now so we can keep a close watch on her. I woke up at 4:30 this morning and had one of those uneasy feelings come over me, so I slipped on my robe and headed up to the barn to find this...




TWINS!! A boy and a girl!







It was a very mild morning, but the temperature fell as the day went on, so we worked all day getting the lambing pen wind and rain proof, setting up the heat lamp, and putting down fresh dry bedding for Lucy and her new babies. All seems to be going well, and the little girl lamb seems to be especially spunky, but they are both very tiny and weak so they're still not out of the woods yet.

Even though our Anniversary trip had to be put on hold we still had a wonderful day working together in the barn... and we both agreed we wouldn't want it any other way.
Happy Anniversary, Baby- our life together is never dull!

  13. Knowing you, my dear, this is the sweetest gift you could have gotten. You have been so worried about Lucy and she gives you, not one but two little reasons to smile every day! The are precious and I know you will see them through. I can just hear the pride in your words. I can't wait to see them jumping and running around out in the pen with Rowdy. Spring is going to be such fun at your farm. Just like in a Mother Goose rhyme.....
    Did you know that January 25 is also the day they gave Mya as her birthday? Yep, she celebrated her 4th birthday Monday! She is kind of spunky, too and gives us all many reasons to smile. I guess we are both blessed by God's gracious spirit.......
    Thanks again for my wonderful surprise.

  25. They are wonderful looking lambs. When I was small we had lambs too, but they passed away two nights later due to cold weather and an unloving mother.
