cheep, cheep

This morning we were up with the chickens because
well, we received a call from the post office
that our chickens had arrived.

Baby chickens, that is.

They came all safe, sound cute and cuddly.
That's a lot to pack in one little box.

Lucy finally woke up and was tickled to see her newest friends.

And every time she got to hold them...
Wow, stop the world, she experienced happiness at an unheard of level.

I tell you what.
This child just giggles with sheer delight when
she picks up these chicks.

It is the sweetest thing ever.

I think we'll order a new batch every month
just to experience this amount
of joy over and over.

OK, maybe not.

That face! That smile! That sheer joy! Thank you for posting!!!!! It totally made my day.

John is dying for chickens. He keeps forgetting that chickens and 2 beagles don't really mix as well as our suburban, right on top of each other houses, neighborhood.

Oh to live someplace else. But this where GOD has us, this is were we bloom.

What are you going to do with them over the winter. We want chickens again too, but guess we will wait till March and hatch them in our ought to love that, but the days of 25-50 peeps in the mail were fun too. Until I looked and half of them tried to drown themselves in the dryer rescued a bunch of em...
Faith loves to look at them, but squeals and drops them if she tries to hold them...not a farm girl, that one
