Holiday Spirit

Well, as you know, I am all done with Christmas shopping. The cats are having a blast trying to tear up the tree and presents. They already got to one present so much so that I can’t give it now! Ugh! But it was kind of an extra anyway so I don’t need to get another. If you noticed in my last picture

Hit By a Ton of Bricks

I got home last night and felt like crap.  I even stopped on the way home from school to get some cold medicine.  Do you know hard it is to find cold medicine WITHOUT pain killers in it???  (allergic).  Luckily Robitussin came to the rescue.  Feeling ok today, let’s hope it doesn’t get worse!

While at CVS, I had a moment of weakness.  After

We have more chicks!  That’s right, our mama hens are hatching their own eggs.  They all just want to be mommies!  The first hen didn’t do very well and only got 1 chick out of the whole batch and it is doing great:

It already has lots of feathers!  The latest mama hen has 4 chicks already and she is still sitting on her eggs

Cookies & Chickens

It hasn’t really rained here lately.  I’m having a party today that I wanted to do outside on the lawn.  What do you know, its raining today.  Bah!  LoL.  Anyway, I am having friends over tonight.  We had some very brown bananas in the house so I decided to look up some recipes on SparkRecipes.com.  I found a recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip
