Farm Baby is 1: If you give a mouse a cookie

After months of trying to figure out what we were going to do to celebrate Farm Baby's 1st birthday we finally decided...

Cookies & Milk with a "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" focus.
mainly because he LOVES LOVES cookies!

I didn't get many pictures but below is a snapshot of the party

The gift table

The drink station

The birthday boy before cake


What is this?


After cake :) 

Lots of my ideas cake from my Pinterest board 

Until next time

WOW! Where has March gone???

I can't believe that Monday is the last day of March!  
This year is quickly flying by...I haven't had a post since the middle of the month...
obviously things got away from me!

So what's been going on in our life?
 around the farm? 

Well  we had a photo shoot for the little farm baby...

We visited Ikea and took our own milk (this is a reused bottle from Homestead)...because what else does a dairy family do?

Got our wonderful 1st birthday photos from our AMAZING photographer... check her out here

Had fun celebrating a friends birthday

Fed cows roughly 120 bales of hay this month...that's just one set

Made flags for a wedding

Saw gorgeous sunsets

School yard gardens started

drove to Atlanta in the rain & traffic to speak at a dairy meeting

Started tomatoes

Fed hogs

rode the 4 wheeler

celebrated farmbaby's 1st birthday

wore him out

got to watch some calves really take off

fed more hay

took wagon rides

planted 8 school yard gardens (225 students)

Farmboy FINALLY got his haircut

Spent last Friday afternoon washing show pigs

While Farm Baby watched

Washed some more

Had our first 1st pig show on Saturday

Exposing Farm baby to his 1st pig show (surely not his last)

Watched the judge

loaded all the hogs no being resold to haul to the processor....this group of kiddos maybe the best help Chester Livestock Exchange has ever had...

and watched those "cute" baby chicks turn into these not so cute pullets

oh and kinda continued my weight loss journey.

So as you can see it's been a busy month.  

I haven't posted much because honestly I didn't plan very well.  Here's to next month and better planning!!

Until next time!
