Our first egg!
She had a party at the skating rink. Here she is skating with her BFF. They could almost be twins...
He got a few more quail and a Chukar, too, in later hunting excursions. And a couple of rabbits (made some delicious rabbit stew!).
Halloween monster cookies!
In December, Daddy took MoMo to the salon to get her hair done.
On Valentine's Day these 6 little cuties came home with us.
They don't have names, yet. But they are getting big! And getting their patterns...especially the black ones who will end up sort of black and white striped. They are Barred Rocks. Plus there are two white ones (Leghorns, maybe, or White Rocks? I just told her to give me 2 white ones because MoMo wanted white), a Buff Orpington, and a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. So now we've got 8 chickens and 2 ducks and a generous supply of both chicken and duck eggs. We're going to have to start giving them away. And these little ones aren't even laying yet!
Also I'm pretty excited that I finally have an extra freezer in the garage! So now I can buy meat and things when it's on sale and have room to keep it frozen. I had so little freezer space before that it was ridiculous. And I definitely feel a little old to be so excited about an appliance! But in order to fit the freezer in the garage we had to do some cleaning and reorganizing. It's still a work in progress. But it's gonna be awesome when it's done! Then I can get my craft/sewing supplies and fabric organized. In the meantime I was moving around fabric in the garage and decided I needed to make some quilts with some of it pronto. Yesterday I cut up one of my very favorite lines of fabric, Sultry by Moda. And did some sewing. Hopefully in a day or two I'll have a new quilt top to share. Here's one final picture from yesterday. My little quilter...
