Can you tell I am SO ready for the weekend?

What have I been up to? Well, Tyler's birthday is Sunday, and we had his party at school on Wednesday:

We are headed out to Punxsutawney, PA today (in fact, I am leaving work at noon so I can clean the house real quick before we go) to look at Jessie's pigs. Todd's cousin raises them and sells them for 4-H projects, and he has his sale on Good Friday (all the pigs are under 1 month old). But he wants us to make a final decision on which pigs we would like to try and buy through the sale. My suggestions that he pick the pig out so far have fallen on deaf ears. Lots of piggy pictures will be forthcoming on Monday.

Sunday, right when we get home (if all goes according to plan, this will be between noon and 1:00), Jessie's 4-H advisor is coming over to work with her and her steer and heifer for the upcoming show on the 19th.

And at 4:30, we are having family and friends over for Tyler's birthday dinner.

Here's the newest baby to the farm (the one born at 12:36 a.m.):

And here is the first baby, who has some structural problems in her back legs (you can sort of see on her left back leg how crooked it is - think very bow legged cowboy with no muscle tone in his legs). Hopefully she will grow out of them....she's a feisty little buggar.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Awwwwwww. I love the pictures of your new babies. I do see that little back leg. Sweet. Hopefully she'll grow stronger. She's a pretty little thing as is the early riser! :)

Happy, happy birthday to Tyler! I know the party with family and friends will be loving and fun.

And a safe trip to PA. Can't wait to see piggy pics! :)

Sunshine days to you & yours,
Ana :)

Such sweet, sweet animals. My husband doesn't want me to view your posts -- he's afraid he'll come home to all sorts of cute little barn animals....

And happy birthday, Tyler!
