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.

Apr6MollyPosey didn’t want to be left out …


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.
