Overheard at the Hennhouse.....

Recently we had some close friends come over to play at our house. They brought there bulldog, Duncan, over for a short visit also.

Dash: "Mom, Mom!!"
Ta: "What buddy?"
Dash: "Duncan just peed on the pasta's!" (hosta's)

Also, Ta and Buzz just celebrated their 15th anniversary on July 22nd! They are the best parents in the whole world and I am so glad that they met each other! Ta told me that on there wedding day a friend said to them, " Someday I just know that you guys are going to have 5 or 6 kids!"
Ta and Buzz cracked up and never thought that there 15th anniversary present would be precious little Giggles! But they were wrong about that, and I don't think that they regret it!

Extreme Makeover ( Roof Edition)-Day 1

Extreme Makeover-Roof Edition is the biggest project ever to go on at the hennhouse. I mean we have had little projects like new closet door and porch windows but nothing ever like this. Wednesday we had an extremely big truck deliver shingles, tar paper, and all that good stuff.
We were all very excited and a little bit scared of that huge truck....

This is Ta's "very happy" face

Then at about 6:30 this morning I woke up to this sound: Beep, beep, beep, beep.
No, it wasn't my alarm clock; is was the sound of a truck backing into our driveway. But, it was no ordinary truck, it was the dumpster truck!
That is what I call a garbage can!

Here are some more random pics....
Sunshine, (from the awesome blog Room For More) having a great time cutting watermelon. YIKES!!
Me grilling hot dogs. Yes, grilling
That's our ROOF!
There will be more crazy adventures to come!

Holding new baby sissy for the first time.

Each of the kids got to meet their new sister for the first time and hold her.  They were very excited and sweet to watch knowing how much they were looking forward to this addition to our family!  The last picture i took very spontaneously as they were all hovering over her as mommy was getting her blanky all snug around her.  I will have to get a better shot of all 6 when we get home.
