tidings of comfort and joy...

and here it is... Chloe obviously feeling the joy and Jake, as always, just hardly containing his. We went to the mall last Saturday for the obligatory santa photo and made a poor old guy in a red suit feel really bad about his job.

Meet the Girls

Lucy, the Rhode Island Red, and Ethel, the Plymouth Barred Rock, are the newest members of our kooky family. They're sweet, plucky and just about ready to lay me some eggs... this Spring.

We picked these two up last weekend at this little mom and pop place called Blue Hill Farm just north of Ojai where they raise pygmy goats, turkeys and, of corse, rare breeds of chickens.

more photos here of kids and pygmy goat kids to fullfill that cuteness need. No need to push, there's enough to go around.
