Baby Goats

Yesterday Mom and Dad came to pick me up at Debbie's. I had a very nice time over there, its like a little mini holiday spending time with my dear friend Alise (niece) and my other niece and nephew. It was a perfect day for me to come home, last night at 10 pm we got to watch little baby goats being born.

Mom had a little towel to dry off their ears when they were born because it was -20 and if we left it damp, the ears would have froze and fall off. We went inside and waited another 10-15 minutes to see if she had another little baby.

Sure enough there was another baby, Mom dried it off and checked what kind of gender it was. They were both twin boys. We have 2 sets of twins that are boys right now. 2 Mama goats giving birth down, 3 more to go...

We set up a little box for the goats to sleep inside because it was getting really cold that we couldn't let them go outside. Mom was milking the goat so that we had milk for the night. Mom and I bottle fed them inside and at first they didn't know what to do but then they got the hang of it.

Working Out

Tyrell and I were exercising together. Tyrell is thinking that we should be stronger so I went along with him. This little activity was called "Bend Overs." You have to stand up and bend your knees all the way to the ground and stand up. Tyrell and I did 310 bend overs.

By the time we were finished our legs were so wiggly and so weak I thought that my legs weren't going to make it up in our little loft. When I was on the stair case Mom was watching my legs go bouncing off the wood, she said that it was pretty funny.

At Alises

I am over at Alises house, I brought my schoolwork with me so I will not be so far behind in school... I got news from home that I will be going home tomorrow morning/afternoon. Mom said one of our mama goats had little twin boys. We won't be keeping the boys but we will certainly be selling them. We have about 5 goats that are pregnant and soon to be due.

For Tyrell's birthday we went over to Craig and Stephanie's to have a family/birthday supper. Craig said that he has a great hill for sledding and is going to make some sledding tracks. When we arrived at Craig and Stephanie's we went sledding right away. I stayed inside just for a little bit with Katie. When we were ready to go outside we suited up.

Craig had a long walk up to the drive way to go to the hill so he hitched a little platform to the quad and all the snow riders pile up onto the platform and away we go to the top of the hill. I grabbed the orange calf sled and went onto the platform and up I went. Katie asked if she could go with me and I accepted.

She said that she will go in the back and I will be placed in the front. I forgot that if you are in front you get the snow all in your face, AND forgot to cover my face so of course I got all drenched in snow. I said to Katie " Do you want to go again?" she nodded so up we went again on the quad. We were stuck because all of the family was on the platform and the quad couldn't take it.

Craig called up Darcy to sit on the back of the quad for weight and the wheels gripped to the snow and we made it up half way until the front wheels gave up. Craig called up Jesse to sit on the front rack of the quad to see if it was going to make it up the hill.  Luckily with the boys weight we made it up. Mom was on the platform as well and laughed.

Katie and I went on the calf sled for a very long time. The calf sled was the fastest sled we had over all of the sleds. Second round Katie placed me in front AGAIN and of course I forgot to duck my head so she yelled " DUCK YOUR HEAD KAYLEE." so I did. We had went onto the deep snow and we crashed. I had a toque over my head and it went over my eyes so I couldn't see very well, so I stood up and Katie moved the sled onto the tracks.

Of course I couldn't see very well, so I tried to go onto the sled and slipped and fell. Craig and Stephanie went on a tube that can go very fast as well and Katie glanced at the sled and just grabbed me by the hood and dragged me down so the couldn't run over me. It was a little to late, I was ran over just by the legs.

We went sledding for a very long time until it was sundown. We went inside to warm up and dry our clothes and had a nice hot chocolate with little marshmallows on it. Megan, Katie, Alise, and I went to play "Life" we didn't really get a chance to play the whole game because it was supper.

We had turkey with gravy,buns,drinks, and chips. We sang happy birthday to Tyrell and had cake and he opened up his birthday presents. He was really excited that he got a gift certificate to Corlanes. It is a hunting store with all kinds of things for boys to be overwhelmed.

Tyrell's Birthday Supper

Tyrell's birthday was only a few days and we had a nice turkey supper. It was fun. Darcy bought Tyrell the game "Risk". After dinner we played Risk, Darcy, Tyrell, Megan, and I. Guess who won! Megan did.
