Snow Days = Busy Days
I’ll admit it, I love snow days!
There’s something magical about getting up and finding the world dressed in sparkling white. It’s a scene I haven’t woken up to very often in the past few years, but when the weatherman starts mentioning snow, I start hoping and dreaming. Rarely do my dreams become reality!
This week a storm system came through. We received a little snow, but most blew into the ditch and drifted. There wasn’t even enough left on the ground to tempt my boys into getting out the 4-wheelers and sleds. The winds have been strong and the temperatures low so we’ve all been happy to stay inside–except for Mark.
For some reason that I’ll probably never figure out, cows and heifers love to have their babies in the winter. And like any very pregnant female, a good storm system can set things off. Mark and I were planning to go to a basketball game with friends but that was cancelled because…
Baby #1 had to be pulled by Mark at 6:00 p.m.
Baby #2′s momma had to be taken to the vet in town to be pulled at 9:00 p.m.
Baby #3 decided to come at 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning but needed some help from Mark to get here.
It was a cold and busy night at the Meisinger Maternity Ward. Normally they don’t need much help, but these mommas are first-timers so a little encouragement was needed! All are doing well.
By the way, Baby #4 was born around noon on Thursday without any help. Momma knows what she’s doing and had the baby while we were at lunch.
The snow will probably disappear tomorrow so I’ll start wishing for another snowy day. Mark, on the other hand, will be quite happy if we don’t get another cold, snowy system for the rest of the winter!
