We have some pretty wild animals living in our house right now…
These two are completely out of control!
Careful, her energy might overwhelm you!
This year I made place cards for our Thanksgiving feast.We hosted the big day at our house with nearly 20 of our closest family & friends! I had a lot of fun making the place cards and I am already thinking of how I want to do it next year. No place card was alike and I tried to reflect a little bit of the personality of the person I made the card for.
The weather was so beautiful we were able to have it on our back deck, pilgrim style! It was the first time we’ve ever eaten outside for Thanksgiving but it was such a hit that we plan on doing it next year as well(weather permiting!).Eating outside means you can’t have light centerpieces that will blow over or fly away.So this year we opted for mason jars with tealights and mini pumpkins.I got a major deal on the pumpkins! After Halloween I found them for $1/bag (a bag held 5 pumpkins)! I’ve collected a number of different mason jars over the years so it was nice to put them to use.I filled the jars with a little bit of sand and rocks, along with a single tealight.We did have to put rocks under the place cards so the little bit of wind that we had didn’t send them flying.
*I do realize I am posting this in December (it’s not exactly fall anymore) but it took me this long to recover from Thanksgiving. Now that I’ve recovered I can finally blog about it!
Finally I have returned to blogging after a long extended break. I was intending on taking a month off but that turned into 8 months off! I know I needed the time to focus on my family & our farm but lately I’ve really been missing the creative outlet of blogging. So here I am. Feeling like I have so much to say, yet not knowing where to start. To say things have been busy here would be an understatement! We’ve been completing back to back DIY projects here on the farm and I can’t wait to share pictures!
We have 10 new little girls at our place!
# of Roosters: 2
# of Hens: 4
# of New Chicks: 10
Total # of Chickens: 16
Right now our chickens are laying about 3 eggs per day (not much but that’s normal for this time of the year).
Once the baby girls are full grown we’ll be seeing at least a dozen per day!!
