Then and Now

I thought I would share the photos of the two new sets of birds we got this year. I have been looking back at them over the last few months. Remember these 4? Then they grew some… This is them now 🙂 All incorporated into the big flock. They are still learning the ropes and finding their place, but they have been out for the … Read More Then and Now

Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Our boys love to play in the snow especially when you are out with them. They love to run in any wide open space and find new places to explore. Our Chase is pretty intrigued when he is around any barn and is always trying to sniff out the critters. He is usually on high alert during these times not wanting to miss a … Read More Snow Dogs on the Hunt

Time for Snow Fun…

Good morning…. Chase is ready for more snow fun today. He can’t wait to be out again today playing and having fun. (Who can resist this face that says “mommy let me play in the snow”) The plan is to finish inside chores and in between take snow breaks to let him run about and play. I am sure Baxter will join him some … Read More Time for Snow Fun…

First Snow…

We had our first snow… it was so pretty. It started last night and went through early this morning. After work today I took the boys out to play and enjoy the snow. Baxter has new boots as he is getting older and he gets colder quicker then he used to. At first he wasn’t sure of them, but then he got used to traipsing … Read More First Snow…

Fall brings Thankfulness

We have one tree out by the road that always is so pretty when it changes colors. We love this tree as it signals fall and is just pretty to look at. It also reminds me that Thanksgiving is on it’s way and it helps me to remember what I am thankful for. Even when it seems thing aren’t going your way, things could … Read More Fall brings Thankfulness

Wish… Deferred?

Have you ever had a wish or do you have a wish… a wish that is so deep down in your heart that you are afraid to say it out loud? A wish that you have wanted so bad and long that you stop saying it out loud and keep it buried inside. Something you have prayed for and hoped for that it seems … Read More Wish… Deferred?

This past week hubby and I went away overnight for our anniversary. Our neighbor agreed to watch the chickens and feed/let out the dogs so we could go. On the drive to Pittsburg, PA we went though the Gap. It has really pretty views especially in the morning hours. I am usually looking up at the mountains from home. Its a different perspective looking … Read More Anniversary Trip

Sunset so Bright

There are many nice things in any given day. But one of my favorite things is a beautiful sunset. When I see a beautiful sunset, one where the colors are vibrant or bright… it can make a bad day better or a good day great. Hubby and I got to see a beautiful one a couple nights ago coming home from running errands in … Read More Sunset so Bright
