And the winner is...

You people amaze me... I could have never imagined the wonderful and creative (not to mention hilarious) names that you, my wonderful blog friends, would send my way. I mean, really... Boris and Natasha? Baabs and Woolfgang? Donny and Marie? LOVE IT!! And that was only a few- all of them were great!
However, it did make for a terrible dilemma... how in the world was I going to choose? I thought about using Random.org, but since some of you had multiple suggestions, I wasn't sure how that would work. So, I whined and cried all weekend to Hubby about what I was going to do until finally he said, "put all of the names in the egg basket and draw one out!"

I'm so glad I married such a smart man... *sigh*....

Hubby did the honors....



And the winner is...


Congratulations, April!
Email your address to me and your prize will be on it's way as soon as I monogram the tote bag for you.

And now- meet Pepper and Polly!




I don't know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods today, but this is what we woke up to this morning.


I know what Edie's thinking...
The same thing I'm thinking.

Stupid groundhog!

Happy (snowy) Monday, everybody!

  4. I like the new names. Congrats to the winner.
    It is so cold here today. Just a few miles up the road they are having a blizzard so I guess I'll stop complaining.I could be in that part of the state.
    Hope you stay warm.
    I agree with Edie. Stupid groundhog!!!

  11. We got snow over the weekend (about 6 or 7 inches). But most of it is gone now. Temps were pushing 50 today. Pepper and Polly are great names. Congrats to April.

  12. we had another storm yesterday. we are so tired of snow. it is beautiful and covers a multitude of uglies but enough is enough!
    I think Pepper and Polly are darlin' names. what will become of the little ram when he grows up. Do you 'fix' them so they don't get into mischief? Do you breed in line or only from another blood line? just curious.....
    Hope your snow melts soon....I'm so looking forward to spring and I do start mine vicariously through you Southerners!

  13. Perfect names! Naming animals is so much fun because you can use all the names you love and their personalities take them on! Pepper and Polly will be happy little lambs with names like that!
    Spring is coming...the snow will go and you will have the best grass ever!! Snow and it's nutrients brighten the greens!

  14. What's up with that groundhog? I'm thinking he was woke up too early...I get grouchy like that too when someone wakes me up!

    Love the new names! Congrats to April!

  15. Pepper and Polly are wonderful names. We got 7 inches of snow last week and now it's all gone. We were out of town in western VA over the weekend and I am glad we are home. They are calling for more snow over there. While driving through the mountains we saw a ton of snow and deer. It was magical!

  16. Those are great names! There's sure been lots of snow everywhere but here. It's looking and feeling like Spring now.
    Blessings,

  19. Great names! And wonderful pictures again, too. (as always!) How are your bees handling all this snow and cold? I guess they hibernate, right?

  20. Congratulations to April! Pepper and Polly re so cute and it should be fun to call them!

    Our chickens are different breeds, we don't even know what a couple of them are! I went with a list of which kind were supposed to be the friendliest, but the man we bought them from was just getting started in the business and doesn't know much about them. He may have even given us a rooster or two!?!? We're not sure exactly how we'll know until one (or more) of them crow. We've put Annie back in with the girls and it's okay except for one (she/it's usually been sweet) but Betty (or Bert?) is raising a ruckus and we had to separate her/him? All's still not well in their coop. But I've noticed that the Aracauna's are the toughest ones!
    That beak trim sounds interesting but I wouldn't know how on earth to accomplish it. Ouch!
    Thank you for the advice - I KNOW I'm going to need more! Hope you don't mind?
    Many Blessings,
    Julie

  28. I sure do love the names "Pepper and Polly." What adorable sheep. The snow is very pretty, too. Have a great week.

  29. Pepper and Polly are such cute names!! We came thru easatern TN on Monday, coming back from Nashville. We took the 'short cut' thru Newport, TN into Hot Springs, NC. That is one curvy road but it is beautiful thru there. Thankfully the road was clear. Yep, I think the same of the groundhog.
