Christmas Eve At The Farm

I've spent the day with my children and grandchildren at the farm.  It was everything a Christmas should be - family, food, laughter , excited little ones and good times.  Well, until the goat died, it was all of that.  I'll get to the goat later.

My daughter picked up a guitar to sing to one of her nieces ~

That brought my grandson to the piano ~

And that brought more players and singers ~

We all had to laugh ~

When baby joined in by using a cookie tin for a drum ~

Of course, there are chores to be done on the farm and I thought I would take pictures of all the animals with their Christmas treats.  The kids had given me a list of appropriate gifts for each type of animal.  There are two kittens secreted there tonight in answer to a Santa letter from the kids.

I was getting ready for my photo shoot and noticed the oldest goat wasn't moving.  Heck, he wasn't even breathing.  I'm pretty sure my brain wasn't firing on all cylinders when I asked my daughter if there was something wrong with her goat.  Ummm - I think something wrong is a bit of an understatement!

It's never boring at the farm!

Merry Christmas to everyone!  I hope your holiday is everything you hope it to be and all your goats are well!

I'm sharing this with ~
