Belated Postcard



Knowing that I was going to have some great new views this weekend, I delayed my weekly postcard.  

I ran my 2nd half marathon of 2017 and was reminded of my love for running.  The conditions were wet and a bit chilly, but my support crew was there the whole way (in pjs and rain boots) cheering me on.

Their love gives me the strength to move mountains.  
(I will stick with half marathons though.)

WHO'S COUNTING?


Delainee had help collecting her eggs.  
And she made sure that grandpa counted them as they were gathered.

She loves to spend time with her "Papa!"

Naughty Mommy

We got the funnest package in the mail yesterday!  
Grandma sent us "chicken stuff"!

Is this not the cutest tea towel?!  I will be framing it in barn wood and hanging it in our kitchen.  
Then I can look at it while I make the soup and use the napkins to wipe up our 2 little messy missies.


Thank you, Grandma!

I have to share the scolding that I received yesterday.  
It has been cold, so while Tildy2 (Delainee) was giving the ladies their lunch 
time snack, I collected the eggs.  

Well, boy was that WRONG!!  
I was scolded for the next 5 minutes on how I was "naughty" and on 
how that was her job, "I get the eggs."


Lets just say, my egg collecting days are done.

We are getting 4 eggs a day and they are gorgeous!!  
Stay tuned for more on that......

GRANDMA'S EGG-CELLENT IDEA

My mom (aka Grandma) has been threatening my husband and exciting me for 
2 years with the idea of getting our daughter 
chickens for her 3rd birthday.  

Guess who turns 3 this year?! (I'm in denial!!)
Who doesn't wear a princess dress and cowgirl boots when collecting eggs?!
Sooooo.........
Grandma and Grandpa visited over Easter and guess what we did?


We have 2 very excited little girls. 


(And 2 very excited "slightly older" girls. aka Me and Grandma.)

I have decided to blog about our experience in order to share our new adventure, as well as, leave a place for the girls to go back when they are older and realize just how crazy, I mean fun,  their grandma and mom were.  So please follow along on our adventure and don't be shy in helping us along the way!

May you have an Egg-cellent day!!!!

PS Thank you Grandma for the new adventure!
PSS Thank you Grandpa for all your help in making this happen!!
PSSS Thank you Charlie for going along with your crazy chicken girls!!!
