The Birthday Girl

Since I'm terrible at remembering actual dates, I just always remember Maisie was born early Sunday morning of the Turkey Trot Dog Trial.  Is it just me or does it seem like way longer than two years ago???



"This is the best birthday cake ever!"




"Hey, how come you didn't light my candle?"


Getting every. last. Cheerio.


"Oh, I missed one?"


"How come I can't have any birthday cake?"


Not to worry.  Everyone got to share the "cake".  And look!  There's a kitty at the party with Kate :-). Actually, Claire Bear was there, too.  Good Girl, Kate!

Kate is on a lead only because coming from a real sheep farm, we weren't sure how she'd feel about one very opinionated sheep loose in the middle of the driveway chowing down on a box of Cheerios. I think she'd be just as happy to herd Cheerios ;-).



And like all good parties, it rapidly deteriorated into Maisie punching stuff.  Yes, that's her foot all the way up there!


And Maisie punching people.


And trying to grind them into the dirt.


Martha Stewart Pro tip - you need to anchor the "cake" box to the straw bale "table".  John used a couple big nail spikes.


And as the box is empty, John is trying to remove the nails, because the last thing The Danger Lamb needs is either an open candle flame or a rusty nail to gulp down :-o.


"I WANT MORE CAKE!!!"


The little stinker.


"Who me?"

Happy Birthday Silly Girl.  We love you very much :-).

Let's see how many people we can get to wish Maisie a Happy Birthday!

There are two Christmas card designs featuring Crazy Miss Maisie, Baked With Love and Two Eyes Made Out Of Coal.  For every 25 people wishing Maisie a Happy Birthday here in the comments, we'll draw for a box of cards, winner's pick.  For example, if 75 people say Happy Birthday, we'll give away three boxes of Christmas cards...

Yes, it's that time of year already!

And no, I haven't started painting this year's design :-o.

ewespin said...

My first thought was, I hope that Cheerios box is nailed down or it is going to be upside down on the ground! Glad someone else had the same thought. It does look like the best birthday cake ever! Happy Birthday, Maisie.

You've come a long way from the kitchen crate to bossy yard girl. Happy B'day Maisie!

Gloria said...

Happy Birthday, Maisie! It doesn't seem possible that it has been 2 years since you were born in a sheep pen. Such a tiny, sickly baby. It seems as though all the cheering you on actually worked. Look at how big you are now. Glad you liked your birthday cake.

Kim Ridge said...

Happiest of birthdays to you, Maisie!! You are one lucky sheep to get a whole box of cheerios! ;)

sophy0075 said...

Happy Birthday, Maisie!

You weren't really punching humans - you just wanted all of the Cheerios for yourself ;)

And just because wool is fire-retardant doesn't mean you get a lit candle. You do seem to have a proclivity for Trouble.

Susan Mckee-Nugent said...

Oh I do love her and her attitude :)
That was just the best! Thank you.
What a Birthday 'cake', Cheerios!
And Kate probably wondering...W H A T ?

English sheep gal said...

Dear Maisie, I can't believe I'm going to be the last person to wish you a "Happy Birthday"! I used to check the blog twice a day to see how you were doing. You were the most adorable little lambie and have grown up to be a beautiful young lady, oops, ewe.
Can't believe it's been 2 whole years. So glad you're here, or rather, there. Thanks for all the smiles and giggles.
Love and Hugs, Cathy
and Jim too

Kylie said...

Happy birthday, Maisie!! It is truly crazy to feel like you "know" a sheep through the Internet, but thanks to your wonderful pictures and engaging way of writing, I truly have laughed at, felt scared for, and adored this little lamb.

small farm girl said...
