Yesterday we held the first birthday party Pip has ever had. We had her friends over, I made her a black forest cherry cake from scratch that all the adults enjoyed, Zachary made pizza for everyone. There was hot apple cider ob the woodstove. We showed off all the work we have done on the land this year while lamenting that we didn’t get enough done. (Farms – there is always more to do than there is time and money for).
The girls liked the piglets and the bunny babies, a couple of them couldn’t keep their hands away from the goats.
It rained all morning long but the weather even cooperated for the party.
All in all, it was a great success. I enjoyed having the rare treat of visitors, and the even more rare treat of my husband cleaning the house.
