Party "PEEPS" in the house.......

We've been a little busy around here....

I've been workin' on the Mr. to get chickens for several years, finally I got the green light.

I'd like to introduce you to our new "girls".  

Pretty cute, huh?  I took these pictures a few days after we got them.  

We're not in agreement on the names yet, but being a big Dixi Chicks fan, one 

of my daughters decided to named hers Martie.

They're almost 4 weeks now.  

I have to tell you with zero hesitation ....  They're nowhere near as cute 

today as they were when I took these pictures.  They're growing up at warp 

speed and it's kind of freaking me out!  This morning I went down stairs to see 

how they were doing and I swear, they've grown into teenagers overnight!!!

By the way(because I know you're wondering about the death grip), the chick above was not hurt.

Anyway...I thought I'd give you a peek at our new feathered friends.  

Any tips on raising chicks/chickens are appreciated and gladly accepted! 

A little side note...

My 7 year old went to a birthday party at an art studio this weekend and here's 

what she worked on.   Turns out it was a complete coincidence that she got to 

draw the 3 chicks.  

I just love it!

Happy Thursday to all you chicks & peeps!!!

  1. How cool to have three little chicks! I love your daughter's painting...we had my kiddo's party at an art studio last month and the kids made some great stuff.

  2. I like your blog, your pictures and the way you write.
    Love the retail therapy post. So agree with you on retail therapy. I practice it every so often.
    The bull, he's fantastic. Bargain!!
    I'm adding myself.

    Have a great day!
