Christa got to see her daughter Daisy and meet her new granddaughter Buttercup:

When the goats when back home, our goats seemed to really miss them!
The above pictures did not turn out very good at all. The sun was too bright for my camera I guess. I am not having an easy time with the camera I bought earlier this year. Lighting, and motion, are my struggles with this camera. (I find many of the pictures I take of the kids turn out blurry - even if I try and focus first.) I took this picture, right before the above goat pictures, and it turned out fine - I guess because the animals were in a shady part of the yard:

On a different note, I am always coming up with ideas of things we can make to try and sell. (I seriously need to open an Etsy shop soon!) An idea I had recently was to make cinnamon scented pine cones. I first shared the idea with Tabby. She wanted nothing to do with it. However Hunter was interested. So he got busy collecting pine cones. I found this recipe online how to make them. We went outside and collected pine cones to try a batch. Yummmmm .... they turned out wonderful. Hunter sold two bags of them right away.
Then we advertised and within 2 days, Hunter had orders for 9 bags. (We put 24 pine cones in each bag along with several cinnamon sticks.) Sold for $5.00 a bag. Bam! Hunter made $55 in less than a week!
I gotta tell you though - that was a lot of pine cones! :)
