It's cold outside tonight.  Supposed to get down to 14*F.  Not super cold, but cold.

We got a wee bit of snow the other day.  About an inch...rather pathetic for this time of year in North Idaho.  I can't say that I mind though. :)

My bro and I went shopping for my dad today.   My dad doesn't read my blog (that I know of;), so I can tell you what we got him - a new wallet (Kohls), Kit-Kats, a plastic tube full of M&Ms with a plastic M&M Santa on top, a teddy bear shaped chocolate (about 5" tall), and a Hot Wheels car.  We enjoy joke presents in my family.   Like, wrapping a small present inside a huge box.  I guess you could sum it up by saying that we like to have fun. :)

On our way home from town, we stopped by Matthew (aka Ani) and Christopher's house for a surprise visit.  We brought donuts.  They let us in. ;)

I've said this before, but I just gotta say it again...

Steve McQueen = awesome

Did you know he became a Christian later in life?  I think that's so cool. =)

I had a wonderful time sewing and watching The Bishop's Wife with my good friend Michelle yesterday. :)

A few pictures of my sheepies...


 Sweet Pea

Isn't he cute?
I'm the only one he'll allow to pet him, and he follows me around like a dog.  
Sometimes, I let him out of the pen and he walks around the property with me:)

Fawn, one of our guard llamas.
Llamas are such snobs.

None of my pics of Ingrid, my black ewe, turned out.  She moves too much.  Oh well.

I don't think I'll be posting anymore until after Christmas, so I'd like to wish all of my readers a very merry and blessed Christmas.  In the midst of our holiday cheer, let us not forget the reason we are celebrating - the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Being a shepherdess myself, it always makes me feel extra special to know that shepherds were the first to hear the glorious news of our Lord's birth.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And , lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and the were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas, Tasha!!! =D I hope to see you soon!

  2. We only got about a quarter-inch, so don't feel too bad. ;-)

    Our pastor told our Bible study group that the shepherds in Bethlehem were responsible for tending the sacrificial lambs--appropriate, since Christ was born to be the Ultimate Sacrifice, aye? It gives things you read in the Bible deeper meaning (for me, anyway) when you know the culture behind it....

    Sounds like your dad likes sweet gifts. And we've totally done the small-present-in-big-box thing in our family! That, or layers and layers of wrapping paper. Hee!

    A blessed and Merry Christmas to you, as well!
    God bless,

  3. Merry Christmas to you all! =)

    @Wild Rose - Yep, we've done the layers and layers of paper, too. Such fun. ;)


Comments are my one weakness - thanks for taking the time to say hello!
