my bubbles

You guys.

So much has happened! How is your New Year going so far? Mine is great, because my only resolution was to maintain or improve my current level of awesomeness.

We learned how to make aebleskivers at the table (portable butane stove) and devised new toppings and inclusions for same, we drove all over creation going to various family and friend events, I made Pommes Anna for Christmas dinner and it was good, and we had a delightful New Year's Eve party. But the most exciting thing is this:
Hazel is here! Eeee! Does she remind you of anyone? Say, perhaps, this one?
Welcome differences include a quieter voice, less insistent yelling, less yelling overall, and being alive. Very exciting! We clipped her hooves and when we were leaving the pen we said, "Thanks for coming to live with us, Hazel." She responded with, "Yeah, like I had a choice. You probably don't even have Calf-Manna." She's right, we don't!

Also Superman got a fish and two frogs for Christmas from his Oma and Opa.
They are engrossing! You might ask why we didn't start with something small like fish, instead of chickens, then cats, then goats. If you start with fish and work your way up, people will think that your animal habit is getting out of hand and they need to have an intervention. If, on the other hand, you start with the big stuff and add little things afterward, then it's no big deal because you're already crazy. You decide how you want to handle it. Either way your family will look down on you, sorry to say.
