He Knows If You've Been Bad Or Good

Stella and I have made it an annual tradition to take a sheep on a Christmas adventure. Popcorn PeePee Pants went to a holiday photo shoot, Henrietta went to visit Santa at Tractor Supply Company, Ewen McTeagle participated in a walking nativity and Woolliam got to chat with the big guy last year.

The Santa Paws pet photos at TSC supports the neighboring Scott County Humane Society. It's always a fun time and this year we knew we'd have to take the boys.



"Hi Santa. My name's Graham Lamb and this is my brother Keebs. We've been real good all year!"



"Um, I think he's on to us."



"Yeah, I did chase Comby the other day. YES, we did get into the hay stall when we weren't supposed to. But it was Keebler who ate all Esther's cookies!"



"Yeah, yeah, right. I'm going to start being good. All year. Got it. Whatever you say. Just bring the presents."



Keebs, you gotta tell Santa what you want for Christmas. (I got a lot of those looks the whole time. You know the one - just like the one on the porch when he was a baby.)



While Keebler only wanted to stay right by my side, Graham Lamb was quite happy to "work" the crowd.



"Why did you make me have to come here. You knew I wouldn't have any fun. And why do I have to wear these stupid reindeer antlers?"



"Oh, there's shopping?"



Or shop lifting. "Saint Tim, we'd better get out of here. They just opened a bag of alfalfa cubes."



"Hey Keebs! I think we need one of these!"

"Just keep walking Graham. Come on."

Even if your local humane society doesn't let encourage you to bring a sheep, dog, cat or even iguana to have their photo taken with Santa, don't forget them over the holidays. Those shelters always need a helping hand.

OH MY!!! The picture of the boys for their first Christmas with the blue background is so cute! They are a photogenic duo. I can bet that they have some special treats in their stocking for being such good boys this year! Thanks for sharing.

ROTFL! Oh, good grief, I'm busting a gut here. That is hysterical. I would have paid to been a fly on the wall.

Lori Skoog said...

I love it! Beautiful shots. How do you transport them? I have a friend who used to put one of her sheep in the back of her station wagon when she did errands.

Michelle said...

Too cute!

OH My Goodness!! that is so cute and I love the antlers, have to get some for my goats for their Christmas picture.

Peacecat said...

AAAAAHHHH!!! LOVE IT!!! Don't tell Keebler (or is that Graham) that only female Reindeers keep their antlers. Of course, he's probably maaaan enough to handle the truth.

Oh, those are awesome.

Deb said...

Those boys are just too darn cute~! What a fun day :)

VioletSky said...

Oh man, this is hilarious! we never get such cuties in our stores!

Eleanor P said...

Love the boys!!!!! How many smiles did they get and did they get any treats from Santa? You really are something!!!! Thank you for the "vision of sugarplums" (so to speak) that will leave big smile on my face all day--even in the pouring down rain.

June said...

Loved the story, and Keebler and Graham Lamb are so cute with Santa! I do so much enjoy visiting your blog!

flowerweaver said...

Very cute! I'm sure they would never allow a sheep--let alone two--to visit Santa at our TSC. That's KY for you!

Deb W said...

OK, this has to win the award for the CUTEST thing I've seen all year!

(looks like your TSC is pretty nice. The one nearest me is less so)

Too funny!!

Dianne MacDonald said...

I love it! I think Graham should run for public office. He's got that "working the crowd" thing down pretty well. His sister,
Gabby, would make a great campaign manager (she loves smoozing with the people).

Extremely cute post! The boys are so lucky to have someone like you to do all that fun stuff!!

They rode in the back of my Honda CRV. We've hauled sheep home from New York in the back of that poor car :-o. Keebs is used to riding - from when he was a baby. GL was fine...because he was with Keebs :-).

dibear said...

Oh what a wonderful treat to see the boys! This is just too clever, love the Keebs in his antlers. :)

sheepsclothing said...

Too funny. I just love the antlers!
Keebler and Graham are so cute. I hope Santa brings them all kinds of good stuff.

colleen said...

LOVE IT!!!!!

tonya fedders said...

how fun! looks like the boys enjoyed their day out to see Santa - very cute!

Joanna@BooneDocksWilcox said...

Oh I should have taken a couple of goats to Santa Paws, never thought about it. Darling photo's. Do sheep pee as often as goats? My goats pee a LOT!

Ed said...

Now thats one COOL X-MAS post, Keebs with the antlers is just too funny!!!

Nancy K. said...

I do believe that you have GOT to be the best "sheep Mom" in the Whole-WIDE-WORLD!

Thank your for all the smiles you create...

ROFLMAO!!!!! What a hoot! Thanks for this. :) Your guys must be house-trained. If it were my guys, they'd have left beans all over the place.
I sure wish we had a TSC here.
Have to go and fix my gut too. I sure busted it laughing here.

Good onya, mate!

thecrazysheeplady said...

No, they're not house trained. Poor Stella followed them everywhere with a bag of towels ;-).

Dana and Daisy said...

oh goodness they sure have grown!
