{ New Chickens...}

Last night we got 4 one year old chickens..
These girls are awesome, they already have layed 4 eggs!
sadly one got dropped by a little person....
We are super excited about having new chickens and my Parker is sleeping in the Camp Trailer in case our predators come back. Which they did this morning around 5 am, and yes the dogs belong to our neighbors. There are large teeth marks on the chickens house as the dogs were biting the roof of the nesting box.
So we get to go and have a little chat with our neighbors.
Should be fun.
But for now we are going to enjoy our new girls & home grown eggs...
Oh and the kids have affectionately named these chickens after the ones we lost on the 17th.

{ Our Chickens.... }

Way back in April we purchased some Baby Chicks that were about a week old.
and last night an animal (we don't know what kind) came and tore the bottom of the nesting box off and killed them.
Why do chickens have to be so delicious?
It's been a sad day at our house.
Don't mind the chicken poop. 
Some of the kids are taking it harder then others.
They've all decided that we need to get more chickens and hopefully we will someday soon.
Rest in peace Shelly, Yoko, Penny, & Eggbert.
The kids miss you already......

{ Maybe It's The Weather..... }

Do you ever feel like the above photo?
I feel this way today, are you sure it isn't Monday?

So far today I've had 1 continuous whiny 3.5 yr old that speaks Whinese fluently, if only I did.

1 sweet 8 month old baby who's diaper decided not to hold and got all over my left leg and all over the baby. This same baby is also not feeling so hot as she is teething and is letting me know about it.

I ran outside for a minute and lucky us, we've had a mama bird nesting right on our porch and she is making a MESS! And when I say mess I mean poop, yes more poop and it's everywhere. If she and her 2 babies don't get a move on quick they will be getting evicted.
Yup, I'm to that point. 

Then I made lunch for the kiddos
my 6 yr old ate all of his, my 3.5 yr old decided she didn't like anything I made her even though it was what she wanted. And yes she spoke Whinese the entire meal.

So I clean up lunch and go grab the little bowl of ranch and guess what? It slips from my fingers and goes all down my right leg and clean jeans mind you, right along with the kitchen floor & rug.

Okay this is the point in the program where I stop and count to 168.......

I tell the kids it's time for naps, then my 3.5 yr old tells me over & over that she isn't happy and that she doesn't like me anymore.
Yes this is how I said it in my head.

I manage to get 2 kids down for naps, I called in the other babysitter I like to call her Sony, she is entertaining the 6 yr old with Star Wars episode II and I finally got to take a much needed shower even if it was after 1:00 pm.
I was going to get dressed but decided what's the point. So I've crawled into a clean pair of PJ's instead.
I don't plan on going anywhere today.
I'm afraid if I do something else will go wrong.

There is hope on the horizon, I have the day off tomorrow and I know that for the rest of the week things have to get better.

Edited: I know it's stupid to complain about little things like this when there are so many other people going through so much worse. But sometimes you just have to get it off your chest and say it.

And you know what... I'm feeling better already.

{ Feeling Crafty }

I'm still here!!
Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I've just been busy.
School is about to end for my kids and everyone has something going on. We are also in the middle of remodeling a couple rooms in our house and one is the office/craft room.
So needless to say all my supplies are in boxes.
 I did managed to get a few things out and make this cute Summer Banner.
 I have a Thankful Banner I hope to have finished here shortly and then BOTH will be going into my Etsy Shop.

I am also on a board through our church and am in charge of 2 Super Saturday classes and here is one of the crafts I hope we will be making come October.
I think it turned out pretty cute.
Now to find out if I can order bulk frames!

Crow and tree SVG file found HERE
Deena has a fantastic blog with all kinds of goodies, check her out!

I've had so much fun seeing everyone on Pinterest, if you sent me your email and I some how missed sending you an invite, just leave a comment on this post with your email again and I'll get you an invite sent.

Have a fabulous weekend & happy pinning!

ps. sorry about the cruddy pictures, it's constantly raining & grey here. We've actually had lots of homes in our town that have suffered from flooding. I hope to see some sun soon.
