Little Boys, Little Girls and Little Piggies

So much has been happening here!  I have trying desperately to get my house back in order and cleaned.  When we had so much sickness over the winter months, my house went into total disarray.  Some days it feels it will never be organized and straight enough to do a deep cleaning, but I am slowly getting there!

Other than Alissa being given a brand new bike which we were out-bid on at a pig pickin' and auction for a local Mennonite school and

and Jacob learning how to ride without training wheels,

the most exciting thing that happened in recent weeks is the birth of our first litter of piglets!  Thelma Francine gave birth to eleven piglets, but only two made it.  I thought you might enjoy a little peek at them.  They are SOOO cute!


Tell me that is not the cutest piggy face you have ever seen!

So stinkin cute!

Abbey loves the piggies too!

Since adding more protein to mom's diet, the piglets have gotten so fat!  In addition to nursing, they love to climb up in the trough and nibble along side of her.  AWW!!!  Today one of the little piglets found instead of jumping back from my hands, it actually enjoyed me reaching in to scratch it!  I love to watch these two funny babies rooting, running, jumping, playing, and learning about piggy life! AAhhhh!  I wouldn't trade my life for any other!

What exciting thing has happened in your life lately?

Until we meet again, may you be blessed!


  1. Definitely the cutest piggie that I have ever seen! they stink?

  2. LOL! LOL! Sometimes they do to me if the wind is blowing just right, but my nephew acted like he was going to die from the odor the other day. The pigs themselves surprisingly don't smell, just the pen sometimes. When it is really dry, I hardly ever smell them. I am guessing that is because our soil is so sandy.
