Busy Windy Weekend

Do you know what's wrong in this picture? See the sleds on the shed.
They are upside down.
For the second day in a row this shed had been flipped backwards.
For the second day we are lucky that no animals were hurt.
The winds have been brutal for a good part of the week.
The back barn door has taken some abuse too.Zola took it in stride, and just lay on the sunny side, where ever it is.
Isn't she getting wide? She is due in early March.We had many guests Saturday, and they came dressed for the cold.
We aren't hugging these kids because they're cute.
Its because they are warm.
This is the family that has Ella and Ginger(Tisa), Vinegar's twins from last year.
They are such goat pros now.
The last of the Christmas trees was being stuffed with hay to keep it from blowing across the field. The kids are digging in to get it, and I think they like the wind break.
Really, we are only hugging the kids for warmth.
They are little and cute too.
Talking about the goats now!

This morning I was heading to the house for breakfast in the substantially colder weather, when I stopped and put the fresh eggs down to take this video.

The kids practically make me dizzy, running every which way like this!
If this doesn't make you smile...

Oh, yes, that brought a BIG smile. And, it brought lots of "awwwwww, isn't that cute!" :)
