We got baby chickens!

Russ and I have dreamed of this moment for a while now.  We have wanted to have chickens for quite some time.  That was one of the reasons why we bought this house, because it came with plenty of land so that we could have room to raise chickens.

The first batch of chickens we got about a week ago.  The kids had fun helping us set up their area under the heat lamp.  These chicks were about a week old when we got them.

Today we got a batch of 8 more chicks that are only a few days old.

Let's hope that all of these baby chicks continue to do well and thrive so that we can get them in the coop and start collecting eggs!

Peace and love.....

Jaylee turns 6!

March 19th, 2012

Today was a special day.  It was Jaylee's 6th birthday.  I let her wear her special dress to school today.

I picked her up from school and surprised her with a birthday balloon.  Then we came home and she opened her gifts from her Great Grandma and Grandpa Bigsby that they mailed her and from us.

We took care of all of the animals and baby Sawyer and then got ready to head out for Jaylee's birthday dinner.  She got to choose where she wanted to go, and she chose Red Lobster.

While we were waiting for our table, we saw Dr. Fieo walk by.  He is the Dr that delivered her.  We thought that was pretty neat to see him on her actual birthday.

I can't get over how big Jaylee is getting.  We couldn't be more proud of her.  She is an amazing little 
girl.  She is so smart, kind, compassionate, funny and so wise for her age.

Happy Birthday Jaylee!!
Peace and love.....
