We Got Snow

by coie - February 18th, 2007.
Filed under: Uncategorized.

Poor me.  I get excited over two inches of snow.  Of course I’ve seen what real snowfalls are like, but I’ve never lived in a place that will keep snow for more than 24 hours.  My friend SHAIYA has been snowed in since Monday.  Shaiya, if you guys run out of food, open a window and have a snowcone.

Here are pictures of our pathetic "Snow Storm" and my goats (does anyone actually enjoy hearing about the goats?)  Click on thumbnails for larger versions.

Our lovely pond.  If you look really hard, you will see our ducks behind the dock, walking on water.

No larger picture of this one, sorry.  I’m sure you were anxious to print it out and hang it on your kitchen bulletin board.  I’m still learning what proper footwear is for this weather.

Golly– enjoying the snow.

The following pictures demonstrate my recent practice in goat catching.  When the kids are hyper, it’s very difficult to catch them and I want to do it in a way that will not frighten them.  I don’t think I’m succeeding in the "not frightening them" part.

Getting Golly

Coaxing Gee with "Come here, baby…."

Success!  Me and Gee.

While I was preoccupied with the goats I heard a ruckus in the chicken house which Ryann had just entered.  I just stood there and tried to think of all the different things that could have caused the sudden outburst.  Then Ryann, who is very proficient in the skill of sneaking up behind chickens and catching them, came out with a rooster she named "Solotaire", which she was carrying by it’s legs.  Poor thing.  If I was snatched up by a tree-girl and being held upside down I would be screaming like a crazy woman too.  Especially if I knew I was going to be dinner in a few days.

Ryann and Solotaire, after being placed back to his regular position.

I’ve moved chicken butchering day to Tuesday because I will make a cake tomorrow, and I don’t want it decorated with feathers.

    Happy Birthday, Coie! I hope my daughter grows up to make me as proud as your parents are of you! Blessings!

  9. Happy Birthday!

    Glad to see that the kids are doing well. Good luck with your first chicken butchering. Check your dad's computer, you might still have my husband's little butcher tutorial on there. If not let me know and I'll upload it to a site for you. Just make sure your knife is REALLY, REALLY sharp. That makes all the difference in the world.

    One of our roosters was VERY stupid and jumped all over my son yesterday. Today we're using him to test and see how the dog's do with chickens wandering around in the yard (so far so good), but if he so much as looks at one of us the wrong way again – into the stew pot he goes!

    Sorry to get off on the butchering tangent. Happy Birthday!


    Yup, your mom spilled the beans on her blog! Congratulations and happy birthday! God bless the rest of your wonderful journey through life.

    Happy birthday Coie, again!

    I'm having a lot of fun wishing you happy birthday… can you tell?

    Happy Birthday, Coie.

    I’m glad it’s nice and snowy.

    Your munchkin cheeks are so cute.

    And you really should ware some boot – s

    Some times you’re kinda nice

    Remember that one time you had lice?

    You’re really good at paintball.

    You’re hard to hit ‘cause you’re small.

    You’ve always been better at “spying” then me.

    Maybe ‘cause you were as swift as a monkey.

    You dance as well as Fred Astaire

    My dancing skills are only fair.

    Your brain is really smart.

    And you have a really big heart.

    You sing as well as Michel Jackson.

    And I know you wish you could play the Saxon.

    You are the best cousin in your home.

    And that’s why I wrote you this lovely poem!

    Happy Birthday, Coie!

    …Sorry, there’s nothing else that rhymes with Coie.

    – Paulie

    Poggy, I never knew you could rhyme…bwahaha, now I have a blackmail poem from YOU.

    Happy Birthday Coie1

    I thought of a bunch of sappy stuff to write, but it would cause a flood of tears and then short circuit my key board and then I would be in huge trouble with Mr.W.

    We love you a huge bunch and then some. We are praying for you and all those important things yet to come in your life.

    Well, ok.

    Because it’s your Birthday, you can blackmail me.

    (But I’m not giving you a thing for the next 20 birthdays if you do.)

    I'd be cautious Paulie. Now that Coie's 18 she plans to boss us around to do whatever she wants us to. Should be lots of fun though 🙂

  17. Let it snow let it snow let it snow.

    A few days ago we got a huge blizzard that dumped 2 to 3 feet of snow, we spent the next two days shoveling/plowing it, but after all the works done its lots of fun.

    Go to my blog and scroll down a bit to see my post about it.

    Cute goats. 🙂

    Happy Happy Birthday, Coie!!!!

    Happy Birthday, Coie!

    Thank you for sharing your very special Bday with us.

    Your birthday has been the topic of interest today, except for all the sawing, hammering and measuring down in the barn!

    And, btw… you are more than welcome to come and haul away the 3-4 ft. of snow we have in our yard. Been shoveling and sloshing through it all week now. Yuck! Glad you are so excited about it. Hope it's done for awhile here.

    Loved Paulie's poem. You guys are so sweet.

    Good thing he didn't rhyme you with dough-y, though he could have rhymed you with snowy, since it actually snowed there!

    Birthday Blessings-

    Mrs. Dixon

    So you are baking your own b-day cake? That just doesn't seem right… However, moving chicken butchering day to Tuesday sounds like a fantastical idea.

    That Golly sure is a cute goat.



  26. Happy Birthday, Coie!

    I loved the picture montage over on your dad's blog. It was very cool to see you grow up through those pictures.

    I hope you had a wonderful day!

    Have a blessed day! Tami

    PS Would you mind telling me where you took your high school test? I need to look into that for my daughter.


    Happy Happy Happy Birthday!

  28. Coie,


    Love, The Perkins Family

    How does it feel to be 18?

    I have to agree with your Mom on the pictures on your Dad's blog… when did you get a tongue ring??

    ( ;

    What you been up to?

    Isaac and I just looked at your pics again, and he remembers Golly and Gee. He asked who Ryann was, since he couldn't remember her name. He did say that "we bringed her", though.

    Take care-

    Mrs. Dixon

    I LOVE your hairdo in your avatar? Did you do that?

    If you did, then you must try to fix mine for me for the big dance in October!

    Hope you had a superfun day!


  36. Happy (belated) Birthday!

    I guess I'm a little late. I hope you had a good time butchering your chickens. (Even though it does sound a bit repulsive. What makes it wose is that I heard about a chicken who had its head cut off, but lived for several more years. Not seconds or minutes, several years. I'm now envisioning you chopping off a chicken's head, then it running around headless. Eww.) Anyway happy birthday and God bless you.
