Rylee got to fly to Albuquerque for Thanksgiving
and meet her niece for the very first time.
They had such a good time
and I am so glad she had this opportunity.
Some of you have already seen these photos
on my facebook page
but I wanted to post them here
for my mom to see.
I picked her up from the airport on Saturday
and today I made her catch Barley for me
so I could trim the wool around her eyes.
Talk about an abrupt end to a vacation!
"Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit".
It has been said that if you say this upon waking
the first day of every month
you will have good luck all through the month.
A variation of this is to say "White Rabbit" upon waking.
If these were not the first words out of your mouth
all is not lost for the month.
Before going to bed
you simply say "Black Rabbit"
or "Tibbar, Tibbar, Tibbar
(rabbit spelled backwards).
Wishing you all a lucky and blessed December.

It's nice when all the hard work and preparation
This years big show in Norfolk was fun and profitable.
I don't like to brag so come closer and I will just
whisper how much we brought in for this first day.
psst **over $400**
And how couldn't it be a success
with these two beauties behind the table?
Two of the Sisters Five.
Rylee bought this super cute sweatshirt
and liked it so much she put it on over her dress
and wore it the rest of the day.
Back at the
Sara made Uncle Jim's tacos for dinner.
Rylee made another pie.
Sara did some studying
with a study buddy
(Scuttles the chinchilla)
while I filled some more lotion bottles
and Rylee did some scrap-booking.
Now we are settling in for a movie.
And then do it all again tomorrow.
A very good day indeed.

We have had wonderful November weather
and tonight was no exception.
Except...a storm is on it's way.
"Run Barley! A storm is on it's way!"
"Wait - what?"
(Barley needs the wool cut from around her eyes)
Everyone got some more bedding.
Wilson loves his pig mattress.
He buried his nose in it.
Now we wait.
But nobody said we were looking forward to it.
On another note,
I am trying not to breed the goats this year.
I say "trying" because all it take is one break out
and it's all over.
I don't want to breed this year
because the girls are
Life has been
They have been
(she's not tied up - she's chewing on that)
Anyway, it would be a really bad idea to have these
already overweight girls attempt to carry the quads they always
end up with. So we are doing the right thing and taking a year off.
Next year we will try to be in better shape come breeding season.
I hope you enjoy the video. The sheep were very playful tonight.

We are really getting a jump on the holidays here at Sprout N Wings farm.
Since Rylee will be in New Mexico visiting Sasha over Thanksgiving
and getting to see her niece for the very first time,
and since next weekend is a big craft show,
we had Thanksgiving on Sunday.
We didn't get carried away since we aren't really big eaters,
but it was really nice.
Rylee made a cherry pie
After dinner we went for a long walk through the harvested fields.
On the way back we gathered some of the cornstalks left from
the recent harvest and gave them to all the animals.
Even Wilson wanted some.
It was such a nice day.
We kept forgetting that it wasn't Thanksgiving for everyone;
We have so much to be thankful for.
I will be thinking of all of you on your day of giving thanks.
p.s. We will also be celebrating Christmas a couple weeks early.
Whatever works right?
