April Fool!

It was 30 years ago, that I was sweating this day out. My daughter was due and I couldn't think of a more cruel day to be born than on April Fool's Day. All I could think of was her birthday and getting presents with nothing in them and other prankster tricks, so I crossed my fingers and my legs! lol She was actually born on the 10th of this month and that will be Good Friday this year. I can't believe my baby will be 31! Hubby will be 59 two days before that. Just where did the time go?



This is daughter Kristi with her cat Murray.

Spring is a good time to be born, when things are starting to bud and the weather is getting warmer. As for more births, I have checked Ivy's nest. We are up to 16 eggs now! I have read that muscovy's can lay up to 16 eggs, so I am thinking she is done unless she decides to play an April fool's joke on us! lol I guess we will find out tomorrow!



Speaking of babies, guess who wants to be the baby?



That's Herkamer James Lewis AKA Herky. Don't ask why, the name just sort of grew. We call him the pot belly pig with the pipe cleaner tail, because he eats a lot and usually has his tail curled around my wrist when he sits on my lap. Anyway I found out my niece is having a baby so I bought this carrier and stroller at a yard sale, so I am taking it apart and going to sew a new cover in it's place. We have no idea if she is having a girl or a boy yet until next week, but she is thinking soft pastels of yellow and lavender and they love the Vikings, so I will either have to get a Vikings boy outfit or a baby cheerleader outfit to fit in. lol I will post the updated piece later, without cat hair! lol

I had to laugh at your story about your daughters birth. My niece went into labor yesterday and we all held our breath..... still no baby but it looks like her birthday will be 4/2!

It really is scary to think about peoples ages, especially our kids! Because if they are getting older, it means we are getting older! lol
