Lighted Trees

As the sun settled towards it's western resting place this evening, we went out to feed the goats. The bright orange sun gleamed off the ice collected on the trees. Some of the trees looked like winter fairies had decorated the tops of the trees with little lights. Other trees looked like they had fire in the tops. Mother nature has some beautiful displays.

First Snowfall

We had the first snowfall of the winter here. Really creates a Christmas mood. The kids had a blast running and playing in it. Then after much rolling, tackling, and snowball throwing, the kids were ready to come and peal off their wet socks and gloves and snow-caked shoes and settled down with hot cups of cocoa. The goats on the other and, were less than thrilled. The chickens didn't poke their heads out of the coop all day and the cats (who are inside/outside cats) are miffed.
