Whoa! Someone Turned 40!

And it wasn't me!! Got a few years before that. But not the husband! He's headed down the other side of the hill now. ;) 

So besides the milestone birthday, what has happened lately? Well, we've made it to week 4 of radiation. Husband is doing well. Fatigued but that's normal. I slip him a Tylenol PM ever so often to give him a good night's sleep. Hehe

And we have some new babies. It started last Wednesday. George called me as I was leaving work. Heifer was having trouble calving. He called the neighbor to come help him out.  Luckily, we are blessed with awesome neighbors. He came right over with another guy and got the calf pulled. I got home just in time to get the new baby. First time momma didn't want anything to do with it so we got her up in the barn. Husband had to run to town to get powdered colostrum because mom didn't have a bag either. Oh, and she was crashing the truck too. Not a happy camper. So I got the hair dryer out and warmed her up. Poor lil girl. We didn't want to leave her in the barn the first night so she came in the house.

We had to tube her for a few days to get food in her. But now she's doing really well!

She's pretty spunky. Today she ran around the barn bucking and kicking when we let her out of the stall to stretch her legs.  Pretty darn cute!

When I was a kid, we raised beef cattle. Never knew when we'd come home from school and there would be a couple of calves wrapped in blankets warming up in the living room. And the mommas standing at the fence bellowing. LOL Glad your little one is doing well. And Happy Birthday again, George!
