Another picture from Christmas morning.... Coocoo seems to be unhappy with the wipes gift. I think she was hoping for something edible.
This hawk showed up at the bird feeders this morning stalking the finches. We shooed him off for now but will have to keep an eye out as I'm sure he'll be back with this many bird nuggets available.
The goats have their winter coats puffed out to protect themselves from the cold.
We finally got a good snow about 4-6 inches. It is really wet, thick and beautiful. Downside is that it did take our power out for the majority of the day.
Today is Deann's 49th birthday. What special things did she do??? Well, first thing this morning we took Zen to the vet to be spayed. We then followed up with a trip to Tractor Supply, Walmart and the Dollar Store looking for deals on Christmas wrapping paper. We paused only briefly to have a gourmet meal at Subway. We wrapped up the excitement by picking Zen back up and bringing her home. Now THAT was a full, exciting birthday.

Merry Christmas everyone!
Deann says, "Cool! I got a new reciprocating saw!"
Hilda says, "Yeah great... I got some bowls."
When I put Cocoa out this morning in was in snow for the first time. At first she was hesitant to walk in it but then she started to run and she was crazy. She would stop and put her face down in it and come up all snow covered and take off again. I let Zen out also because she had not experienced snow and they ran for 30 minutes around and around the yard.
Several years ago Deann's Mom gave her a Christmas Cactus she had kept for a long time. We never got it to bloom at Christmas until this year. It is beautiful! Almost like Wilma is smiling down and wishing us all a Merry Christmas.
I had put Cocoa out to play outside and I looked out and she was sitting in the doghouse that the outdoor cat sleeps in. As I watched her I realized she had her eyes shut and was soaking up some sunshine. Made me want to go out and join her.
