And today’s Question is:

What is something a Christmas Smurf would be holding?

Today I am at the Mike Johnson’s World Richest Calf Roping and I compete in the Junior Division Tomorrow so the Drawing for Tomorrow might be a bit late. I will try my best to get it done. Maybe I will just postpone listing the winner and post the Fiber early. Anyway, I will work it out the best I can. Remember it doesn’t matter if you get the answer right or wrong just make an attempt to be entered. And Just because we haven’t had any Facebook or Plurk winners doesn’t mean they aren’t in the drawing. I list Blog posts, Plurk and then Facebook in that order and then number them all … Keep trying …

12 Days of Christmas

Yesterday was Christmas and I spent the day with family and we had a pretty good day. Nothing out of the ordinary happened. Dad and I did fit in a bit of hunting though. We also had a huge meal, a lot of laughs and good times. I did some roping too and Harry and Sister came over and ate with us. It was just a nice Quiet day … We except for the Snowball fight Sister and I had in the house … LOL

Okay, it wasn’t a real snowball fight. Mom found these pompom like snowballs that light up when you throw them,. She got 4 one for each of us and she decided as a new tradition that we will have a snowball fight every Christmas Day from now on. She even said she was going to buy some more so that we will each have more then one at a time. Honestly, at first I thought it was kind of Dorky. Once we got going it was so much fun!!!

As for today Mom and I didn’t do a whole lot. We had to go check on Granny as we couldn’t get her on the phone yesterday. Turns out her phone was messed up but I got it working. While we were in Bartlesville Mom and I made a stop at Hobby Lobby. Mom found some really cool material and I found Christmas ornaments on sale!!

My Favorite sale item I got was a set of Three light up flamingos with Santa hats on. I have no idea why but I love them. Mom even let me put them out when we got home. They will come down Jan. 1st when we take down the rest of the Christmas Decorations.

023

Anyway, When we got home Mom switched out her tree so that she could say she used the new one and then I put on all the great new ornaments that we got today on sale.

024

The rest of my day was spent with some awesome Company. Ms. Karen came by. She came to see the new baby and the new barn but what is so great about her coming by is that she came bearing gifts. Due to the season that sounded so materialistic doesn’t it??? BUT, BUT, BUT the gifts are for you … Yup, you heard me. The gifts are for you.

You see, Ms. Karen is destashing fiber. And Thanks to her we have 12 packages of wonderful, yummy, Fibery Fun to give away to you!!!! What are we going to do with it?? Well, we are going to have a 12 days of Christmas contest. I know it was suppose to start Yesterday but we will do it starting today for the next 12 days. So how will you enter and what will you win? Well, each day we will post a Christmas Question and a picture of that days prize. All you have to do is try to answer the question. It doesn’t matter if you get it right or wrong you just have to take a guess. Then we will draw randomly from all the entries each day at noon with the entries that are on the post at that time.

I do want to be clear on one thing and that is NONE of these fibers come from our farm. They are from Ms. Karen’s stash and we will give all the known information on the prize that we have. (Thank you Ms. Karen for so much fun)

So Here is todays post fiber and Question:

Up for grabs is a 4oz braid of Columbia wool from Wooliebullie in the Maple leaf rag color way.

Your Question —

In “Christmas Comes to Willow Creek” Jessie goes into Labor in a blizzard. Who delivers her Baby?

Have fun and I will draw at noon and post the winner tomorrow with the next fiber and question!!!

Christmas Eve on the Farm

So this morning Mom and I got to work getting ready for Christmas. First, we got Egor’s milk and picked up the fuse for the Christmas lights. When we got home we got to work. We made dipped pretzels, cookies, Pies …. the works. In between the baking we watched more Christmas Cartoons.

One very important thing took place here on the farm today … Bell got to go with Hershey out into the yard pen. Hershey did great with her. At first I thought she was going to take off without her but she came back to make sure she came with her and after that I haven’t seen them apart. It really was great to see.

After Dad got off work, Harry came out and we ate pizza, opened the few gifts we had for each other and then we decorated Cookies for Santa. Harry had a blast! I got the cinch for my saddle, a new bit for my horse, a new rope and a hay bale bag for when we travel.

Dad got a new set of reins and a couple pair of jeans. As for Mom, she got a …. New Christmas Tree! Due to mine and Mom’s allergies we can never have a real tree. And the tree that she has in 26 years old. It was purchased when My sister was just One Year old. The tree it’s self isn’t bad it is just kind of thin. It is probably the only artificial tree in history that is losing it’s needles. LOL It was the perfect gift because Mom had been shopping for a new tree but she doesn’t want a huge one. A big one won’t really fit our home so when Dad and I came across a smaller pre-light that was perfect. We also got her a new toaster oven with a built in toaster on top. That was actually something she had on her list. And Mom didn’t guess it and she was surprised. The only thing is that she didn’t get to use it this year.
