A birthday should be filled with lots of surprises, yes? Especially a three year old's birthday. I think so.
Yes, we had food surprises, that landed mama 'thumbs up'. (We're still working on which is the thumb.)
But, the very best surprise, by far was the arrival of a certain pair. He didn't know they arrived. I can't tell you as well as I could show you, so here the picture story...Oh, and the shirt is mama made. Link and pattern here.
It was so magical watching him discover the goats he had worked so hard for. All summer long he sold bread (recipe here), saved his money and talked about getting his goats. And to see the five men in his life that he loves the most just light up to his reaction? Well, this picture makes my heart smile.
Goodness was he excited!
"Mama, I don't want goats anymore".
"Mama, I know I'm a good chicken farmer, but I just don't know if I can be a good goat farmer too."
Baby girl? She loves them too. She's also a natural with them.
