Happy Easter!

Lila, the best lamb ever. I held her for the opening music and she'd have probably sat there the entire service, but I have enough trouble getting through Christ the Lord Is Risen Today and I doubt anyone would sleep through Up From the Grave He Arose ;-).



A couple years ago, Keebler found himself in church on Easter Sunday. For a very short time. Keebler was pretty spoiled complicated. He did not want anyone. but. me. to hold him. Not Auntie Reg, the official lamb sitter. Not Saint Tim, who finally had to take him out to the parking lot where he continued to scream for about half the sermon.



Not Lila. She slept.



And dreamed.



And snuggled up with Reg, who smiled the entire service...because you can't hold a sleeping baby lamb and not smile, right?



She was patient through the meet and greet afterwards.



And made Tommy's day.



"Yeah, okay, but can I take this stupid dress off now?"

Happy Easter!

Lila, you are one highly adaptable lamb. I know you were an Easter blessing to everyone!

Terry said...

What a sweetheart! I'm sure she gladdened everybody's heart.

Michelle said...

Now if THAT didn't give everyone an Easter blessing, nothing can!

Lori Skoog said...

That made my day! Sweet girl.

Sheepmom said...

Super post! And what a set of pictures. Perfect for Easter. You playing piano with her on your lap really takes the cake, and the bottle on the piano is the finishing touch!

Alice said...

Lila gives new meaning to Easter joy! That dress on her is tu-tu much!

Lila looks so proud and happy to be in church. Only boring people at our church..no animals..I love your church! :)

Ed said...

AWWWWW She's already a star..:-)

dibear said...

I love the idea of animals in church. St. Francis of Assi certainly would approve! Lila must have an ear for good music. :)

Eleanor P said...

your blog just left my heart in a great big puddle on the floor! I'll have to show little E--she has just been dressing the bottle babies in onesies to go to the hospital.
love and love and love!

That is so precious! How appropriate to have a lamb in church at Easter. I think our Lord would approve.

That second photos appears to have caught sweet Lila smiling :-)

Mom L said...

That is the most precious thing I have ever seen!! I'm so happy you could take Lila with you.

I would think having a lamb at the Easter service would be special. To be able to see a real lamb in its innocense, and then to think about Jesus as the Lamb, though innocent and clean, sacrificing His life to pay for our sins. The congregation of your church surely must have enjoyed having Lila at their Easter service.
And her cute dress probably enhanced her popularity even more!

Susan said...

None of mine would have been so 'angelic'. She is truly the sweetest lamb ever. And I love the dress with the flower. She is adorable.

junelle said...

Oh, I am undone~ a perfect way to spend Easter service!

Undone! She is a keeper~ blissfully wonderfully sweet.

Now that's a real Easter service! Lila looks so precious in her outfit!

Oh my goodness.....another goat garb-er! Wait'll I tell everyone!


This blog has completely undone my heart!

Claire the Shepherdess said...

Oh she is just the most darling little lamb ever, but don't tell any of my lambs I said that!

Shelley said...

Man, she's adorable!!! I want your life CrazySheepLady!

Peacecat said...

Well, I am simply going to run out of superlatives.
Each post is blissful, sweet, amazing, poignant, funny, touching, artistic, or....

Whew. Each day, I feel like I am repeating myself. I love your blog.
