Welcome to the Family!

Well, as if another baby isn't enough for us, we have now (along with many of Justin's brothers and sister) become the proud new owners of four calves. We took the kids out on Monday to visit them and try to feed them. The brown and white cow is struggling and still has to be bottle fed. Of course, they ARE only 2 weeks old. The girls had a fun time trying to get the calf to drink from the bottle, even though it wsan't that interested. Bo just watched, content in his stroller. Anyway, in about 18-24 months we should have some good beef to barbeque and cook up! Yum!! Yum!!

Marianne and Allison watch as two of the calves drink from their bowls. These two are really good at it, the other black one is starting to catch on, but the brown and white calf still needs to be fed with a bottle.

Justin helps Alli feed the brown calf.

Allison tries to get him to drink. Marianne must be watching Liesel (our sis-in-law) trying to get the other calf to drink out of the bowl.

I remember you saying that you were going to fill the barn....I thought you were referring to kids. Calves are easier and they taste good! Not as difficult to eat after they have names as you might think.
