Darling baby...

I was pleasantly surprised this morning at what I discovered when I followed my milk cow, Louisa to a large weedy area in our pasture... I found---a baby! He is nice and spunky and drank very well for me tonight. Now I'm trying to think of a good name for him. Do you have any suggestions? I think I might call him Lewis, as when I was trying to think of names that rhymed with Louisa, all I could come up with was Esau or Banaeshia (which is a real name, by the way!)--neither of which I'm very fond, so I might just go with a fellow "L" name. Jacob took this picture for me after chores tonight... Isn't "L?" adorable?

While Jacob was out with my camera, he decided to take a picture of Millie too. When I saw this picture, I realized that our puppy can look really mean and wild! If you know Millie though, you know she is anything but mean, although the wild part might be applied to her--as in, wildly full of energy!!!
This is the cake I decorated this afternoon... It was not nearly as time consuming as yesterday's project, which was good, as we had the house to clean and Mom and Jacob went to town for part of the afternoon for supplies, so there was not a dull moment in this day!

Well, I think every one's ready for supper now, so I'd best post this and go put the lasagna on the table. ~

I love calves!
And once again, your cake is gorgeous! You really should go into business or something....:) or have you already? ;)

Thanks for the complement, Virginia! I had a good teacher and good books. :) As far as going into business goes, I think doing a cake every once in a while is about all the time I have for devoting to cake making. (And I do get payed for the cakes I make, so it is a very small business anyway, I guess.)

It's good to have you back again.
