Calling All Superheroes!

a week and a half ago, I realized that my son was turning 5 and I had not had a single friend Birthday Party...I decided it was time...they grow up way too fast.... We invited 4 of his best friends...it was just right.
We made superhero capes for each of the kids this week......and yes they got to keep them....they loved it!  Kaden was so excited to be able to share.


 and of course, we had to make Kaden a Black Batman Cape
 Check out our wall of fire...it lead to some fun games and play time

 They each had their secret identity and made masks...



 Dustin was pretty proud of his mask...it was a little snug but he didn't seem to mind


 Braving the Wall of Fire...









 And Kaden loved the presents!  Thank you!!!








 He loves this Batman Wrappie!  He had to wrap up in it this afternoon...I think he is a little worn out:)



 Happy Birthday Tomorrow Kaden!  We love you and we are so happy to have you in our lives!!!



Our new Big Rock

Ryan planted this Rock in our yard this year...It replaced the 2 trees that were barely surviving. Surprisingly 1 of the trees had been there since we first planted it 6 years ago, however, I did not love the tree. We have planted 3 other trees right next to the tree I did not love, in this same spot but the deer continue to enjoy them every winter...We don't believe they will have as much luck with the Rock...I love it and so do the kids...

Administrative Professionals Day

Ryan made his annual treat for his employees this year for Professionals Day...
Creme Brulee

 He even went so far as to make "Lite" Creme Brulee for the Dieters in his office...They were Delish!

Our Baby Chicks

We decided that we had gone long enough without our chickens. Honestly, I didn't think that I would be so ready but I am very excited!  On Saturday, we got our babys.  They are all so cute! They were a little camera shy but I am sure that we will get more pictures in the future.  It was so nice to have a place for them this year.  The coop was all ready.
We each picked out our own...

Daddy's - Silver - The Gray One
Mommy's - Fluffy - The one with the Yellow Fuzzy top
Bekkah - Marshmallow - The smallest white one
Kaden - Batty - short for batman - it's the Biggest Black chick
Dustin - Cocoa - The brown one

It will be fun to see how they turn out...they are all so different...By the time our new Snow baby gets here in the fall, we should be getting 3-4 eggs a day...Yeah!  I sure have missed our eggs!  It was so nice not to have to run to the store for eggs and it will be nice to not have to go to the store as often... 

We will make sure to hold them lots, feed them treats, let them out every day, hold them some more because the more you handle them, the better they are...Chickens are just so fun!  Some people complain about how messy they are but I think we do pretty well...We love to spoil our chickens:) My one hope...that we don't get any roosters!
