But that is not all!

"But that is not all!

Oh, no.

That is not all...
"Look at me!

Look at me!

Look at me NOW!

It is fun to have fun

But you have to know how."

This Calico Acres Mamma, tender of goats and children KNOWS how to have fun and has no intention of getting up on a ball OR of falling offf............. I love "The Cat in the Hat" and all I could think today as wedding dresses came Fed -Ex and didn't fit, re-ordering was not going  so well,  things were not getting done very efficiently or completely,  and the "To-Do" list was  not getting shorter, the girls came running in from the goat pasture to announce that "Worthless Goat" had had twins!! We had no real idea that this overweight goat was pregnant, not really. I knew there was a "Ribs as guilty party" chance that she could be...........but nah.............he's a big  goat, she's very small and fat...Let's just say I  obviously underestimated hormonally driven ingenuity. I ran to the barn and saw not two but THREE new born baby goats! Tiny baby goats, cute cute cute tiny  day old babies. They must have been born yesterday after the boys did the morning  feeding  and milking and went missed by the girls who tended the herd last night  after dark because the babies  were all cleaned up, dry and frisking around in the barn. Two sweet does and a buckling now have joined the farm family. Oh, and "Worthless Goat"?  We've changed her name to Trina....playing off the tri/three thing....
Riblet and Maggie

Maggie looks  just like her mommy
Riblet  looks  JUST like her Daddy

                                            Todd, named by Naomi here with his sisters. He is much larger than they are but he is still a very small goat   What a fun and unexpected treat the babies were!

 Got the misfitting dress ordered, and it "should "  be here two days before the wedding. My sound track for the song Malachi and Sopheak asked me to sing? Still out there somewhere, so I'm practicing with the original artist. I do have the table and chair count and the number of pews in the auditorium so I know how many to deorate; that's some progress, yes?? Got all the eye doctor and chiropractor appointments set up for this week, and a designated driver for me while I go to OKC and  pick up a friend coming into town for the wedding.
OK maybe I am juggling up on a ball.  I won tickets to a  reception tomorrow night in OKC at the former  OKC mayor's house , for the winner of my political party's  Gubernatorial primary. Not only will Charlie and I  get to meet Mary Fallin , but JEB BUSH is going to be there too.......I'm trying to hop on my ball and get to OKC without dropping the cake and the rake and the gown.    Bets  anyone???
