Finally......some white stuff!!!

Five days before Christmas eve and today was the first day in which snow fell from the sky!
I cannot recall a year when there was no measureable snow this close to Christmas.
Its so hard to get into the spirit of the holiday when all there is to look at is brown frozen ground.

My new snowman flag was finally looking festive!

Even the new garden gnome was looking much cuter with some snow on the ground.

"So, Ira do you think Santa is going to stop by this year?" asked Averill, gully ewe lamb. "I have been really good about not eating the pine trees when Mom lets me out."

"Well, all I know is us sheep have been really good so Santa will be good to us, "replied Ira, "but as for those goats, you know they are nosey, bossy creatures and they made a mess out of Mom's red ribbons on her Christmas wreathes so Santa might just leave them coal."

The gnome is definitely a hoot! How did the celebrity enjoy his time on stage? The kids really got a kick out of a REAL lamb in school. Once April/May comes along, I swear, we ARE coming en masse on a field trip to the farm.
