Cookie Mommies


When I bring cookies to the gate of the goat yard, the mommies can’t get there.

But they know when I have cookies with me. They have cookie radar. They wait impatiently for me to come to them at the goat house.

There’s fierce competition for the first cookie.

Which one of these cookie mommies nailed the first cookie yesterday? A 2011 Chickens in the Road calendar is riding on your answer! This calendar giveaway is sponsored by North Pole Diaries. (The life and times of Santa and Mrs. C. Very cute site with lots of kid-friendly crafts–check it out for the Valentine’s ideas!)

One winner from the correct responses will be drawn by random comment number to receive a CITR 2011 calendar. Eligible entry ends at midnight U.S. Eastern time tonight (February 13). You can only guess once. This post will be updated with the winner by 9 a.m. tomorrow (February 14). Good luck! (It’s February. The calendars gotta go!)

See who won the calendar in the What I Did Yesterday giveaway here.

UPDATE 02/14/11: Will the real cookie mommy please stand up?

It was Sprite! She nabbed the first cookie yesterday. Nutmeg doesn’t look too pleased, does she?

The winning comment number with the correct answer (had to draw about 10 times to get the random number generator to land on someone who said Sprite!) is #9, Andrea the Kitchen Witch. Email me at CITRgiveaways(at) with your full name and address for shipping!

    Rotunda aka Nutmeg

  2. Window On The Prairie says:

    My guess would be Nutmeg. She looks to be the dominant one.
    Suzanne :hungry:

  3. Marianne G says:

    Nutmeg! And I love that picture!

  4. judydee says:

    Just to be different, I’ll say Sprite.

  5. Jean - MN says:

    It was probably Nutmeg, but my vote is Sprite — her tongue seems to be hanging out there a little more

  6. lauren says:

    Oh my gosh look at those cute little tongues haha

  7. Cheryl says:

    Sprite.. i always gotta cheer for the underdog lol.

  8. Linda Goble says:

    I already said a guess. But have you figured out a name for the little brown goat yet? Can’t wait to hear!!!!!!!!

  9. claudia w says:

    Had to be Nutmeg.

  10. Country Carol says:

    Nutmeg :woof: She needs to keep the “figure” of hers, hehe

  11. katpecosa1 says:

    I think I see a determined look eminating from Fanta – and although Nutmeg and Sprite’s tongues are out – I think Fanta’s eyes are on the goal – so I am going to say Fanta!!

  12. annabel52 says:

    I guess Nutmeg, she is “first” in line.

  13. farmershae says:

    Nutmeg looks like she is prepared to throw her weight around, so I think she got it. (Don’t tell her I said her name and “weight” in the same sentence, she’ll never forgive me!!!)

  14. Sharon H says:

    I think it was Sprite. The picture with the tongues out is soooo cute!

  15. Elaine Harrison says:

    Fanta LOL

  16. Christine Davis says:

    Nutmeg….just because πŸ™‚

  17. Diane says:

    I would have to say nutmeg. She looks like she could be very quick at getting that cookie.

  18. windspiritwhimsies says:

    Sprite :yes:

  19. patrice says:

    Nutmeg has her ways, so I’m voting for her! :shimmy:

  20. Gen-IL Homesteader says:


  21. Patricialynn says:

    I’m guessing Clover got the first cookie – since she didn’t get one the other day.

  22. Patricialynn says:

    Oh, duh – I keep mixing up Clover and Nutmeg ~headdesk~

  23. ann/alba says:

    I’m hoping it was Fanta ( maybe the other mommies concede after her loss) Still sad over the little Black one.
    Good luck every one.

  24. Darlene says:

    Being the daughter of the queen of the goat yard and now queen of the goat mommies I think Nutmeg shoved the others aside and grabbed the delicious cookie.

  25. CindyS says:

    Nutmeg! :snoopy:

  26. Tiffany says:

    I’m going to guess Nutmeg!!

  27. Jessica says:

    How cute with their tongues sticking out!
    I am gonna guess… Fanta.

  28. Katie says:

    The girls choose Nutmeg because she has the longest tongue. :dancingmonster:

  29. Mary says:

    My first comment ever!….and I think it was Nutmeg…she looks like she really wants that cookie πŸ™‚

  30. rainss61 says:

    Nutmeg!!!—isnt’t she –hummmm-Clover’s daughter!??! Haha :snoopy:

  31. LisaAJB says:

    Nutmeg of course. She’s her mother’s daughter.

  32. Carrie says:

    Nutmeg…her tongue is the closest.

  33. lilac wolf says:

    I’m going with the Nanny nana goat. Can’t remember her name, the one that’s a grandma. πŸ˜€ Do I have to know her name?

  34. Samantha Cornwell says:

    I’d have to say nutmeg.

  35. Linda of the Tiny Town says:

    Fanta looks like she’s waiting patiently so I’ll say FANTA!

  36. Vicki in So. CA says:

    I’m going with Fanta. I think your hand might have (accidentally) moved in her direction. πŸ˜‰
    Did you make enough of those gingerbread boys to last until next Christmas? If you run out, do you make special goat cookies for them or -gasp- buy them at the store?

  37. Mary in Indiana says:

    Fanta! :wave:

  38. langela says:

    Fanta has my vote.

  39. GrammieEarth says:

    Fanta. She deserves an extra bit of loving these days.

  40. Whaledancer says:

    I love their cookie faces. I’m guessing Fanta.

  41. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Fanta – although Nutmeg was trained by the best, Fanta is concentrating on it a little more!!!

  42. Tina Manley says:

    Fanta. She needs it the most. That is too cute. I love their tongues reaching for the cookie.


  43. Sheila says:

    I’m thinking clover πŸ™‚

  44. Denise says:

    Clover (of course!)

  45. gingergoat says:

  49. TwistedStitcher says:


  50. brookdale says:

    I am going to say the all black one…is it Fanta? Anyway, that’s the one.
    Great pictures! I love how they all look out at you over the gate or through the fence. They must love you a lot! (Or is it the cookies?)

  51. Kimberly in NC says:

    First guess is Nutmeg.

  52. Wendy says:

    I’m betting it’s Nutmeg! (Hope i win! I’d LOVE to have one of your calendars!)

    And, just in case you already asked & i missed it, thought i’d mention;
    you could give all the goat-babies “Cookie names”:
    Chocolate Chip, Sugar, Macadamia, etc.
    Just an idea…

  53. DEBBIE WHEELER says:

    It just had to be Sprite. She is has a sneaky look on her face.

  54. patricia(ticka1) says:

    nutmeg…if you still have a hand to answer after that cookie! Love the picture!

  55. Alicia Nakamura says:

    I’m guessing the all black one…Fanta? She looks like she’s just waiting to grab it! Cute picture!

  56. Kim Gibson says:

    GOTTA be Nutmeg!

  57. nell morell says:

    Fanta, has to be.

  58. AnnieB says:

  60. Donna Mc says:

    Nutmeg looks like she’s the #1 Cookie Queen of the Goat Party.

  61. Tx Aggiemom says:

    :woof: Clover, I’m sure it was her. I’ll mark it on the calendar and celebrate it as an anniversary. πŸ˜†

  62. Tina says:

    I’ll guess Nutmeg. How could you resist that sweet little face? πŸ˜‰

  63. catslady says:

  64. Gingermouse says:

    Fanta, she deserves it most,
    over the loss of the little black one.
