After and Between…

It’s a couple days after Christmas and a few days until the new year. In our house that is recoup time between the holidays. Our Christmas was nice and the kitten had a great but tiring first Christmas and is currently fast asleep… Chase on the other hand humored me earlier today and put on the ‘Grinch who stole Christmas’ antlers and looks just … Read More After and Between…

Merry Christmas…

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Child is given… and he shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.              (Isaiah 9: 6) The cat is ready at the tree… And the dogs are poised to celebrate 🙂 From our family to yours we wish you a very Merry CHRISTmas with many blessings. 🙂

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I have been avoiding my blog for a couple weeks because I had a happy surprise and I couldn’t post about yet. Why you may ask?? Because my mom reads my blog and I hadn’t told her yet and I wanted it to be a surprise for her and my step dad as well. So my thankful post this year starts with this… WE … Read More Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Growing and Laying

Our baby chicks aren’t so babyish anymore… sad face 😦 Two of our Columbian Rock Crosses have started laying (but not the one pictured below)… And maybe even one of my New Hampshire…. Their eggs have been so little and cute 🙂 No yokes in them at first, but now they are getting a little bigger so we’ll see when I crack open a … Read More Growing and Laying

Beauty Filled Day

Our little piece of God’s land had some nice weather today and earlier this week. It was nice enough that the dogs laid in the yard and not in the shade of the porch. Baxter kept trying not to look at me when I was walking around checking on the chickens and snapping shots of him. He used to pose for me, but anymore … Read More Beauty Filled Day

Chase Swims

We are well into summer and since I’m feeling better from my recent surgery the doctor said I can try to get back into shape by waking some.  On a recent walk hubby and I took Chase to a park where he can swim. Now Baxter will have nothing to do with swimming so he just stood by and watched.  But our boy Chase … Read More Chase Swims

Happy Belated 4th

The boys reminded me today that I never posted their 4th photo… So Happy 4th of July (belated) from Baxter and Chase. They hope you had a fun, parades, and fireworks filled day 🙂

Born Free…

So the baby girls had their first day out in wide open spaces yesterday. At first they stayed close to their chicken tractor… But eventually they took off testing their wings and exploring… At one point something must have scared them as the crowed back towards the fence… But eventually they just had fun exploring, under hubbys and my close observation. This is our … Read More Born Free…

Growing Chicks

Our baby chicks are not baby’s anymore 😦 They are big enough now that they can be outside in the chicken tractor every day and learn to be chickens. The big chickens are exploring around the chicks enclosure more and more… Its funny to watch them interact, or not interact, and sometimes just ignore each other. The baby’s are also learning to eat pellet … Read More Growing Chicks

Adventures for Baby Chicks

Our baby chicks are growing and as you know from my last post are able to regulate their body temperature enough where they can be out in the yard on nice warm days. As you can see from the above photo when they go outside they are placed in our newly built chicken tractor so they are safe to explore and birds or other … Read More Adventures for Baby Chicks

Mother’s Day

A very happy and beautiful Mother’s Day to all you mom’s out there, but especially to my Mom and Grandma 🙂               I love my mom and grandma and all they have taught me. My Grandmother started me on my love of baking and encourages me to stick with my faith when my fears set in. She is … Read More Mother’s Day

New Baby Chicks 2015

We broke down and got some more cuteness this year in the form of 10 new baby chicks… We have been debating getting new birds, but since we lost a few more of our oldest chickens this year we decided it was time to get new ones… especially since our egg production is down. We got them when they were one day old and … Read More New Baby Chicks 2015
