Three Little Pigs

The three little pigs - our new ones. The larger spotted one belongs to Russell.

Here are the three new pigs, with our older one, so you can see the difference in size. They seem to be getting along well together.

We still don't have a pigpen set up, and having four pigs on the back porch of the kids' bedrooms isn't the ideal situation. We are hopeful that we'll be able to set up some more permanent living quarters for the pigs this weekend. The big bridge project has been a real manpower drain around the home place, but our menfolk are working manfully to fit everything in when they can. (Notice I used forms of the word "man" three times in that sentence - just to let you know who gets the heavy work done around here.)

By the way, the girls have been working "girlfully" (that must mean working happily and steadily, but not using much muscle?) to make up those Christmas gifts for the pastors. I'll try to get some pictures of that work in the next couple of days.

Jim has name suggestions for the piggies -- "Huff", "Puff" and "Blow your house down". I, on the other hand, would go with "Bar", "Bee" and "Que".
Tell Kate-Kate we said Hi!

Love how self sufficient you are becoming!

More name suggestions: Bacon, Ham, and Pork chop. In this way, no one gets attached when it's time to . . . well you know.

LOL on the names! Too funny!
