Wednesday finally got here, the day of the show. Abbie was very nervous. She did a very good job. The first pig that she showed did not receive anything. It was sifted out. The second pig did a little better. It received 10th in its class. For her first year I think she did very good. She entered 4 items in the show (2 baked items, 2 pigs) and received 3 ribbons. She had to control her pigs while they were in the ring with 20 other pigs. She did wonderfully. Steve and I are very proud of her.

We also have new puppies. They are 4 weeks old today. They were born on January 8th (Elvis' Birthday) and are Miniature Schnauzer's. They are just starting to get around and poop on my floors. I have a couple of pics of them also, but there is only one or two in the pic.
The following photo is of our little orphaned calf, Chip. He was making a really funny face when I snapped the pic, so I just has to put it on here. There are also some of the goats that were standing around also.
Lots of animals to feed and take care of, but I like it. I really like living on a farm that has animals on it again. It is fun and I think it teaches the girls really important things, some are hard things, like when an animal dies, but most are good things, like learning you can do things that you thought you couldn't do. When they discover something new it is so great to see their faces.
Well, next week is the county fair so hopefully she will do well with her entries. Everyone cross their fingers and if you are in Belton next week, stop by the Expo center and check out all the animals and exhibits the kids do. It is really awesome!
