briley and braxton went right to work. barron played in the pot full of water and then earned himself a trip to bed as we got super serious about decorating. maybe next year he will get the whole egg idea. anyways....
seriously hard at work...
well- Joey and the kids convinced me that baby chicks were a great idea for our family. With that said- we loaded up Saturday for the local TSC. The folks at TSC make it oh-so-easy for a family to take home baby chicks- with a start up kit and all!
On the way there I asked Joey how many we would get? 2? more? Wouldn't you know those TSC folks sell them by the half dozen! Are you kidding me? So now, we are the proud owners of 6 babies. Where do they live you ask?
Here we are getting them settled in their new home... down in our barn, in their homemade home (and yes, we destroyed our Sears car-topper for this little farming project- Joey always hated that thing anyway)!
any guesses on how long they will survive around here?
then in 2004 each of us had a baby boy. the 1st boys in 3 generations. left to right... Braxton (mine), Hayden (allison's), Gavin (kristi's), and Tyler (hayley's).
and finally, we tried to capture a pic of the momma ducks and our ducklings. everyone has 2 little ducks except me- my 3 are nestled in there somewhere.
sadly, we don't get together as a group often enough. the kids love to play together. the 2 girls really loved taking charge of the boys and playing. we had gathered this time because our sweet 90 yr old grandfather "Pops" went to be with Jesus. he had blessed each of us with his love and humor. i am sad to say that i now have no living grandparents. it's hard to believe that part of my life has passed. but not without many many wonderful memories!!
here's to wishing for more warm weather...
