Denali LOVES To Give Kisses!

Good Morning Sweet Ladies,

It is SONday........did you notice? 
He said, 

"This is the day that the Lord has made.........we will REJOICE and be glad in it!" Psalm 118:24

Now some days I don't rejoice.......some days they are just plain hard to find anything to rejoice about. Have you had those kind of days? Mine was........ on part of my day yesterday........had to say I was sorry.......and ask for was is a new day.......I am thankful! 

Do you notice the bell hanging on the fence in the picture above? I have wanted to show is from my sweet blogger friend Susan....the one from Texas......she bought it for my birthday. When I opened the present I knew exactly where it was going........the sheep bump the gate and it makes a dong noise......I am enjoying it so much!!!!!! Thank you Susan!

Yesterday Denali was giving must is amazing how sweet he is becoming! We held him down paid off. He has gained 15 pounds since he was born.......getting stronger every day. 

I came out and Denali was kissing his human Momma.

He is so precious! He was sucking her chin.......silly baby!

Denali went to love on the other boys...........

he would nibble all over their head and face. Sweetest thing.

It bonds the children to Denali also, Vitaliy (our new adopted grandson from Ukraine), is loving farm life!

Denali's human momma is making sure their stall is clean.......part of learning to care for her new baby. It will transfer someday into her home if the Lord gives her a husband. 

I told her that when I was her Grandpa Reid had me do the same thing.

While Ellie was cleaning the stall...the boys came to help me in my garden to get paper and chips down around my rhubarb and roses.

Good little helper! V likes to help on the farm.

After we got the paper and chips laid.......Poppa showed them how to use the weed eater.........that was cooler then the job I gave them. Vitaliy liked the protective glasses. 

The girlies were hiding.........the're not good eggs, but I thought the find was beautiful!

Hugs from the farm........trusting your worship time with the Lord was sweet!
