Overheard at the Hennhouse

This morning I was making scones and Bear came up to me and said

    "Bugg, I don't think I'll like those thorns you are making. I have never eated one before."

I have no idea where he got thorns but it was awfully cute!

 Today was an amazing (yet insane) day at the Hennhouse. This morning we all woke up extra early to get to a friends house by 7:30 am to help them with them with their new 24 hr old chicks. The chicks arrive in the mail and if they don't get water, they might die. So, Mrs. D went and picked up the chicks at the post office and by 7:30 we were there. We had a great time. You just pick up the chick, and dip its head in the water so that it swallows some. We almost had an assembly line going, pick up the chick, dip its beak in the water, make sure if drank some ( the chicks head will slightly shake and its beak will open and close) then after it drank had it to the person inside the area where the chicks were. The little chicks were adorable, it was like a little ball of yellow fluff, and they had the cutest noise. Sometimes you could even feel its heart beating! It got very crowded in the little coop so Bear and some other kids went and fed and did stuff with the horses.   Everybody was SOOO well behaved and absolutely loved helping with it. It made us all want chickens..........Don't think that will happen. :)

You can tell we were just a little tired. :)

Happy Birthday Bear!!

Today our Jesse Bear turns 5!!!  Where has the time gone.  Jesse was 15 months when we traveled to Ethiopia to bring him home, and he has grown up so fast.  I will never forget his precious smile that melted my heart when I set eyes on him for the first time. He has a very gentle and quiet way about him.  He is an observer and loves to snuggle.  I am blessed to be his momma.  Happy Birthday, Big Boy!!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Tomorrow, March 6th, is my beloved mommy's birthday. She is an AMAZING mother, teacher, and friend. Mom has her moments but is willing to confess, forgive and listen. I love her soooo much.  She puts up with all of our many 'moments', cooks, teaches, throws parties, does laundry, cleans up after us, and many, many other things.

This is the only picture of Oggie and mom together that I could find......

Post a comment to wish Ta a happy birthday!
