To add to all the birthday excitement around here, the chicks arrived on Friday adding to the layers of fun around this house. Driving home from the post office, Hannah was in a trance and then looked at me and in the most adorable two year old voice proclaimed she loved them and they were her favorite. She has been singing and rocking them to sleep in her little yogurt cup. Grace has been coming to her rescue on many occasions when the chick hops out of the cup. We decided to pay the extra and order pullets this year because we always seem to end up with roosters if we hatch them ourselves. In all we have 17 chicks. Bring on the fresh eggs!
