My Chicks with Baby Chicks

 No they aren't my chicks, though I have been trying to convince Wayne we could keep a few chickens for years now.  So far, no luck convincing him.  I swear if we framed off a small bit of the garage and penned off a section of backyard we hardly use anyway, it could work!  But considering Legend tried to eat the cat a few weeks ago(seriously, it was close), maybe more live things wouldn't be a great idea.

 This chick may look a little anxious.  Once Adalyn got over the idea that they might poop at any moment, she picked them up with gusto.  Maybe too much gusto since that poor little guy may have had the poop squeezed out of him.  I think they all survived with no internal bleeding.

 They ended the day by taping things to the floor to create an obstacle course for the chicks to run.  Not sure if the chicks knew what they were supposed to do but they sure had a fun time making it for them.


 So I'm a wee bit late on this but here was our Easter.  Egg Dying.  Pretty dresses, probably the last time they'll get to wear their flower girls dresses.  Dever still has room in hers but Ady and Willa both have had growth spurts making the dress a little too tight and a little too short:)

 Easter day had us hunting for eggs out at the Hilton Spindlers:)

They didn't seem to mind that these were the same eggs they found in the house when they wok up.
 Seriously, if you know how short my Mom is, it makes this photo even funnier.

 Then relaxing after a yummy dinner.

Willa Turns 7

Many hands make light work ergo,
many tongues and fingers make cake batter cleanup a breeze! 

The birthday girl has since lost the other front tooth and now has a most adorable gapped smile!  Pics t come, eventually.

At school her teacher gave her the choice of 7  hugs or 7 spankings.  She chose the hugs!
 Her middle name is Joy and it suits her so wonderfully.
 Always smiling, always happy...
 Always willing to be a good big sister...
