Through December

"If we make it through December, we'll be fine." -Merle Haggard

I am not a very good photographer, which is OK I guess, I'm not trying to be. A picture is worth a thousand words -and even my rather lame ones convey what I want to share. I have seen some wonderful photos posted on several blogs: The Crazy Sheep Lady's Trick or Treating sheep at Halloween at Punkin's Patch, and Susan's baby donkey photos at Farmgirl Fare taken back in September are two of my favorites.

In my review of the book All New Homespun Handknit, I wrote for the Black Sheep Newsletter, I said I would buy this book just for this picture -and I wasn't joking! Who could resist this face!? (It is also a really great knitting book, besides having some really cute baby farm animal photos.)

This photo was in a recruitment brochure from Claremont McKenna College in California, one of the many university recruitment brochures my youngest daughter has received in the mail over the past few months. 'I want one!' flashed through my mind when I first saw this. I've since sat myself down and given myself the you-don't-need-another-project lecture. (BUT HE'S SO CUTE! I keep arguing.)

These all are really great photos taken by professional level photographers -which I, on the other hand, am not. Nevertheless, I have been looking through our photo files (I was looking for a particular photo), and realized that we (mostly my youngest daughter) have taken lots of baby farm animal pictures over the past few years. I want to share some of them with you by ending the calendar year here with a (mostly silent) countdown to New Year's Day with posts of my favorite (and very unprofessional) baby farm animal photos. I will be cooking, playing with fiber, taking care of farm animals, and enjoying my family and our holiday here at home, but I will be pretty quiet until after the New Year. Wishing Peace and Joy to everyone for the entire holiday season.
