Our "Bird Warehouse" ...with more coming

This was from a while back...but good anyway. The rooster we no longer have....he was too mean to Mom and the little girls....don't train your boys that way.
Our chickens parding across our yard to the chicken coop...

Their BEAUTIFUL products...


A big male turkey that was in our back yard just the other day.

Our Only Snow Storm this Year

This is our home....we believe it kind of looks like Narnia...

Thrift Store Discovery

How did we fail to realize the economy of shopping at thrift stores all of these years? True, there is some picking through clothes that must be done, but the stores we visited today were so clean and organized. We bought all of this for less than $100! It took six children to drive me to the value of shopping this way? I'm ashamed!

#1 Child: 2 pair of shorts
#2 Child: 2 pairs of pants (1 Dockers), 4 pairs of capris (1 Abercrombie and Fitch Co.), 5 skirts (1 J. Jill skirt w/ price tag – retail $69.99), 3 shirts (Ann Taylor), 1 belt
#3 Child: 1 polo (Ralph Lauren)
#4 Child: 2 pair of pants, 1 skirt
Mom: 1 pair capris (Banana Republic), ¾ length-sleeve sweater (Ann Taylor)

See? Even our cat likes them!
