The First Six

Here's our chicken coop and and introduction to the first set of chickens we got. I still haven't taken any pictures of the second set but am planning on taking some today (hopefully).

Here's the whole coop. Chris gives you a frame of reference of how big it actually is. He did everything by himself (except he had some help lifting the trusses into place) and I'm so proud of him!!!

 A peek at the inside. We can add more nesting boxes to the shelf that's cluttered, and we probably will since we have 16 chickens now. The white strip is a board so that they can perch.
 Chris even thought to give them a little ladder to climb up on. Since these pictures were taken, Chris cut a whole above the ladder to the outside, and put a long ramp so they can come in and out of the coop.
 The original six
 Happy Feet (he was pure black with a white butt when he was little)
 Dizzy (as in the cement mixer on Bob the Builder)
 Curious George
 Dale (when he was little, he had a racing stripe going down his back like a chipmunk... but black)
 Chip and Dale, letting me know what they think about me taking pictures of them.
 Starting to nest

We love having chickens, even though they aren't old enough to lay eggs yet. They've become a part of the family and are so much fun to take care of. :)

Catch Up Pictures

So... these were from right before my birthday... two month ago. :/

Josh came over to hang out after school one day and they had so much fun playing in the water! It was great to snap these pictures without them knowing it. :) Carver loves his Uncle "Little Josh" and looks up to him so much.

Carver's Pirate Party

I'm only a week late! Yay! Here's the pictures from Carver's party. I did really good at taking pictures of all the decorations. But I forgot to take pictures during the actual party. :( The kids were soooo cute in their pirate outfits. 

The banner wreath. It's a wrapped yarn wreath.

 Cupcake toppers. Nope, didn't get a picture of the cupcakes.

 The banner
 See the unexpected guest?
 This bird comes in the house whenever the front door is open long enough. It's to the point where, as long as he doesn't poop, I don't care.
 yummy snacks
 Melon boat. Thanks Mom for making it!
 So glad I found this fabric. It's satin so I knew it would stain but it was so worth it.
 Straws. We used jelly jars to drink out of.
 So adorable!!! When did he get so big??
 Checking out his tattoo
 I'm 3!!! Love this shirt.
 My little pirate

 Carver woke up on his actual birthday to a little present from Noah :)
 Carver LOVED his present from Noah
