Shep got a new baby chicken

This sweet boy's most favorite thing is baby animals!  He was so excited to get a new baby chicken last weekend. 

We love it because it has feathered feet!  Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's grown.  Shepard spends lots of his free time just holding and playing with "Fuzzy Feet".

Shepard wears a hat most of the time lately because he's letting his hair grow out from his buzz cut...  mostly because he has to for the upcoming Christmas Carol play, but he's also wanting to see if he likes it better longer. 
(It's hard to grow out a buzz!!) :)

Growing Kids Sale Fall 2013

Just like that...  it came and went.  The sale is over and we are still recuperating.  Our family seems more tired this time.  But it was good!
I celebrated my birthday at the sale this year.
John was so sweet and surprised me with a big ol' cookie cake and lots of balloons.  It did make the day seem a little more festive!
Here's my favorite birthday pic...  everything with John is so much better!!!!!
My fellas at the sale! 

 Josiah had an opportunity to work a new position for a little while...  door security! 
And he loved it!!
Here's Will in one of his favorite finds from the sale... an astronaut costume!
And Shepard worked in the concession stand again with his cousins.  They did a fundraiser for a precious little boy named Fulton who suffered major burn injuries.  Fulton brought them some gifts one afternoon and we got this picture. 
I really love how my boys get to participate in the sale and all they are learning!
But now we're just trying to remember what "normal" life is and settle back in to it.
