I only just arrived home from the Farm today, and my emails are well and truly out of control! Have not had time to look at them or really look at any blogs for the last nine days.
So I hope you have all had a wonderful festive season, and I leave you with My Prayer for 2012.
Dear God
My prayer for 2012 is for
A fat bank account & a thin body.
Please don't mix these up like you did last year.

So wishing you all a joyful New Year :@

And This Little Pig said Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all on this bright, sunny Christmas morning!

The sky is blue and the birds are singing (literally) in the trees, going to be a glorious day.

So on this beautiful day I thought I would share with you a little Christmas story :@

Mother and Child... This is Mimi, who is only a very young teenager, with her December child, we rarely have kids in December most are born August/September, but while Mum and I were on holidays in July we seemed to have had an immaculate conception or was it one of the bucks got out.
Our version of Away in a Manger
And the little girl child, waiting patiently for the the three wise men to turn up with her presents.
So we wish you a safe and merry Christmas from LiBBiE in Oz, with Meah and the Long Dogs, Evie, Quincy and Podge.

In closing the goat herd shepherdess would like to wish you all peace on earth and goodwill to all :@

And This Little Pig said Cow-Day-Wednesday

Last offical Cow-Day-Wednesday for the year! Whiskers!!
Not sure what this one was looking at, but held this pose for a full minute.
Love the speckles.
See that fly near her eye...
... it didn't move.
What a sweet face, and an oval on his side!
Lookie it an oval, I have only seen this once before.

So big day for our last sale of the year, and off to bed, but will talk soon... LiBBiE in Oz

And This Little Pig said Long-Dog & Christmas Tree

This is sort of like a 'Where is Wally?' but it is really 'Where and what is Meah doing?' Sitting in my clean washing! A white dog on my black towels! Looks so innocent, doesn't she?
Miss Meah Moo doing her impression of the Long-Dogs.
Evie, Quincy and Podge
Quincy and Podge
Today I decided to put up the tree, late I know, but better late than never. I haven't had a tree up at home in years, my old tree and all my decorations and lights are at work. Black tree I got a few years ago at a post Christmas sale. Very sparsely decorated... reindeers and a few balls. Must get some lights :@
Green Deer
Blue Deer
and Silver Deer under the tree

And on a closing note Jennifer and Abigail over at Feathers in the Nest are having a very generous giveaway for Christmas, go on over and have a look.

Talk soon... LiBBiE in Oz

And This Little Pig said Cow-Day-Wednesday

Yes I realise that is a photo of long-dog Podge, so adorable isn't she?
And a second and third adorable! So so so pretty!
So today is the second last Cow-Day-Wednesday of the year 2011, and it nearly didn't happen, after surviving the break-in last month, one line of corrupt data, nearly stopped the sale before it started. So after over an hour of on-line support, searching to seek and destroy that line, our IT man found it, and fixed.
So no chance to take any photos, it was a miserable drizzly day, this found me dipping into my CWD Spares folder of photos, these were taken last month on a bright sun shiney day.
All Texas Longhorns, yes we do have them in Oz. This is Dad.

So one more official Cow-Day-Wednesday, but will be going home to the farm for Christmas, and two of the cows are due to calve. May even be lucky and get to photograph a birth.

Talk soon, more long-dog photos, along with some stitching... LiBBiE in Oz
