Well, we picked up the newest additions to our family...er, farm family. :) Some friends of our had some bummer lambs and after going to visit them last week, we decided to go ahead and bring them home. One of them is a rather sickly and requires quite a bit of attention. We're hoping that with all of the love he's been getting he'll perk up soon. We went back and forth on names for the lambs and finally decided on Jeeves and Wooster. Em is absolutely thrilled to finally see her dream come true, and I must admit, we're all pretty smitten with the little guys as well. :)

Emma had a little lamb...

So does William.

Now tell me, isn't he just too cute?

Grace is trying to get Jeeves to follow her around the yard and answer to his name.

Wooster is very attached to Em and she's extremely attached to him!

And one last picture before I go...our little people with the two babies.

This past Saturday was Pi day, and since we're always looking for an excuse to do something fun, we decided to celebrate! Everything we ate that day was circular and cut like pie! We had quiche for breakfast, had it again for lunch (okay, so we were kinda lazy around lunch time, so we threw in some leftovers for those who were quiched out! :)), and then we had homemade pizza for dinner! Apple pie was also on the menu, and it finished baking around dinner time. When we were done with dinner, warm apple pie with a crumb topping was waiting for us! So, without further ado, here are some pictures of our fun day...

Our little man takes a quick nap before the "party" begins.

The sprinkling of the cheese.

The pie in it's completed form.

Three Aunts with three pizzas.

Abigail wonders when we can actually eat it!

Mmmmmm...maybe we'll put pizza on the menu again.

This past Saturday we all went over to church to celebrate with the Price family. They had many things to be celebrating, so they wrapped them all into one fabulous party called "The Priceless Bowl." Once we had all eaten till we were sooo full, the games began. They had relay races, logic puzzles, mazes, paper airplane contests, name that classical tune test, and so much more! Since I somehow ended up as our team leader, and I was also a team member, I didn't get very many pictures, but here are a few for your enjoyment...

Cute little Matthew getting food before the activities begin.

Mrs. Price gave instructions and told us to line up...some people seemed to have a hard time doing this. :)

Nice straight lines, right?

2, 3, 4...we've been numbered!

My fellow teammate works hard on completing a stack of mazes.

Miss B. is working on hard on the base of the retirement badge.

Rachel works on drawing a wedding cake...yes, of course she's doing it on the top of her head! :)

Garrett's amazing cake drawing! Yes, of course he drew it on the top of his head! :)

Sarah naming the presidents.

Levi and Elder Price's finished badge. Cool, eh?

Elder Price shows off his lovely retirement badges...can you see ours? :)


Mr. Price almost gets run over during the festivities!

Grace and Elita race...check out the look of determination on my dad's face. You see...

...HE'S NEXT!!

Go Dad! Go!

Ouch, Josiah...that looks painful...

Jesi R. seems to be praying for something...probably her team to win!

William was on a winning team...so he got an Old Maid set!

Because 20 seemed like a good number, here is a picture of some very good friends we had over for dinner last night.

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous the past two days and we've been thrilled to be able to spend so much time outdoors. The lake is completely defrosted, the geese are making their return flight north, the birds are singing, the breeze is coming in and the sun is shining overhead! What a lovely and blessed time of the year it is! We took a nice long walk with the little people today and had fun taking pictures of our group. Abby is working on an essay, so she decided to stay home and Caleb is out of town with my Dad, so neither of them are the in photos below...

The little girls saw William in his shades are started singing, "He's a secret agent awesome sweet..." Too many Daniel Gardner videos? ;)

A little lady and her body guard.

Three little people.

Yes, he takes his job very seriously. :)

Smiley Grace.

The Aunts.

Our shadows. Okay, the last shadow picture might have been a little hard to figure out...so how about this one. Can you figure out who is who?

Two little girls and one funny boy sit on a log.

The Aunts decide they need a picture there too...and the funny little boy didn't want to be left out...

...so we set up the camera and took a self portrait of all of us!

Tired from walking?

The grass was feeling left out, so here's a picture of it.

It is here now that we shall leave you and bid you adieu! Tune in next time for...something. :)

*Photo credit ~ Emma and Grace were good enough to take the pictures of The Aunts. :)*

My dad and Caleb went down to St. Louis for the Men's Advance last week, so we invited some friends over to stay the night with us. The man of their house went with our menfolk, so we thought it was a lovely setup. It's always nice to have people over when you're "home alone." :) The weather was improving, so some of us decided a nice turn about the neighborhood was in order. Of course, no walk would be complete without our traditional pictures, so our wonderful Rebel XT made the trip with us and captured these...

I'm not sure what the discussion was (probably over Jess' lack of a coat!) but I love Mel's expression! :)


Looks like we were getting some good exercise, eh? ;)

This is the part of the post where you get to guess who is who!!!

And no post is truly complete without a picture of the Little Man, so here he is on Valentine's Day.
