We had no big plans for New Year's this year, and really we're pretty darn boring when it comes down to it :) Really I just hadn't taken the time to plan anything for us to do, so threw together a few things and thankfully had a "theme party package" just waiting to be used. We decided to go sledding with not quite enough snow, so it didn't last long, then have some late night appetizers, while we watched a movie together.

But, a light shone into our boring New Year's plans and we were privy to a miracle of life!! A friend called to say their puppies were being born, so we headed out at 10 pm to see! 6 had been born already - 5 boys and 1 girl, just minutes to hours old.

Who is this cute when they are in labor??

What a sweet Mama, she let us hold them and pet and snuggle them. She's had 30+ puppies before. Moms seem to let more things go with the younger siblings I hear.

Such a neat thing none of us had seen before! We headed home with more light in our eyes and more squeals of delight!! 2 more boys were born that night, 10 minutes after we left and 4 hours later! That poor sister~ 7 brothers!

Those are so cute. Seriously, she looks great in labor.

That's awesome! It reminds me of the time Tara and I saw that cow being born ... we named her Linda. :)
