New Pig Farmer

Hey everybody, Christian here filling in for Hollie. I just wanted to announce the arrival of our newest little pig farmer. Shia Hope Christiansen was born this afternoon around 3pm. At 6 lbs 6 oz and 19" she is a bit of a runt but absolutely beautiful. Hollie did really well and should be able to come home tomorrow. She has lots of dark hair just like Hollie did when she was born. Hans and Dane were so sweet and were cute to listen to as they held her. Hans and Dane couldn't figure out how the baby came out. Hollie and I just looked at each other when they asked about it. I am not sure if we are ready to start explaining that stuff yet! LOL They have seen our sows give birth so if it comes up again I guess we can refer them to that. : ) I will post pictures tomorrow when I get home. Thank you all for your concern and well wishes!

Two More Days to Go!

I can't believe that there are only two more days. I am getting started on Thursday! The time has gone by so fast. I thought it would be fun to post these prego pics that Heidi took for me. Hans and Dane are so excited. They talk to our baby all the time. They even made a chain that they have been counting down with. They will be such great big brothers and helpers!

No Mom!

One morning while I was in the shower Hans came in and told me there was something that I had to see. He had painted this sign and taped it to his bedroom door. As I read it he must have thought that I was sad, because he said; "Don't worry Mom I made this sign so you don't have to come into our room and clean it. Dane and I can clean it all by ourselves and you can just lay on the couch and watch a "Mom" show. I thought this was the most precious thing ever. I love those little boys!

Plant Party Anyone?

One morning Hans and Dane came and got me and told me they had a surprise for me. They had gathered all of my artificial and real plants that they could find (including the ones from the front porch that were still leaking water) and put them all in the living room. Then we had a "Plant Party" and they danced around the plants.

Congrats Sheena!

Christian's little sister, Sheena, graduated from High School last week!
