Miss Emmalynn and Gunnar…

P1130241When Emmalynn woke up she had seen that it snowed and kept pestering everyone about going sledding. They were all busy getting school work and chores done for the day and they promised to take her later.  She acted like she was alright with that answer.  Soon enough we heard the door open and close and when I went to investigate I found this little girl out, playing with Gunnar…P1130246

So much for waiting!

Good thing they are hardy Icelandic’s!  This week they’ve been getting extra hay and always have access to the barn and sheds…P1130169 P1130176-001 P1130179

The chickens don’t seem to care for it at all though…

Frosted…

 

I’m missing the freezing fog this week.  We are experience extremely cold temperatures here this week.  Tonight’s low is suppose be -10 F with wind-chills bringing the temps down to -20 to -30 degrees F.  Wishing it was a bit warmer like it was in these pictures…

Did I mention we have a handful of Suffolk ewes due any day now?  Hopefully they got the memo on not delivering in this cold.  Brrrrrr….

Beautiful Day with the Boys…

After the fog cleared early last Monday, we were graced with a virtually cloud-free, blue sky day.  I knew I needed to head to Glacier, even if it was just for a few hours…

That afternoon was virtually windless making Lake McDonald very glass like!  Actually, I don’t remember ever seeing it as smooth as it was that day.P1120188

Two of the boys also decided to tag along…
