A 20th birthday and Easter –

what a wonderful way to spend a weekend.

We have been able to celebrate Easter with three extended families and our church.

Friends have visited.

Everyone loves a baby goat kid.


Poor little Gonzo wasn’t getting treated well by his mama.  His twin was getting the better end of that deal.  So, for a couple of days … we bottle-fed him.

But, who could be mad at that face!?       ^^^

Plus, Gerty had this big boy:


How big was he?  He was soooo big that she couldn’t have him by herself.  I wasn’t able to pull him by myself, so Pig-farmer had to help.  Poor Gerty.

Since this guy was celebrating his birthday,Apr6Dak

I told him to name that new kid.  “What’s your favorite monster?” I asked….  that big, 20-year old kid … never disappoints in creativity.  His reply was, “Fred Fredburger!!”  of  The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.

Well, I did ask….knowing that he named his cat Trogdor.


Now, we have a goat named Fred Fredburger.

Then, guess what happened?!

Once Gerty had Fred Fredburger, she didn’t mind an extra and she has adopted Gonzo!  That’s an Easter-weekend blessing, too.

I don’t have to get up in the middle of the night for a bottle-feeding anymore.  🙂

Life’s been busy.

Life’s been good.

I hope you had a blessed Easter weekend, too.

    Poor Gerty to require so much help! I’m glad to hear she adopted Gonzo. That makes my heart very happy. Looks like you had lots of help with the kids. 🙂

  2. Lovely post … poor Gerty! I guess you call shorten Fredburger to just Fred 🙂 I hope you had a blessed weekend too.
