The end of 2016

When the ground is frozen, these chickens still NEED a dust bath! I made them last year, sand and fire place ash. But they are creative with their working and digging and if I let them out mid day they can sometimes get a dust bath in. But, very cold temperatures are in the very near future. I will miss having my chicken helpers once the kid are back in school. Willem fills their water everyday and Willem would put together a dust bath in a moment's notice. Hazel is often my egg gatherer. Merit would rather be assigned chores outside of the coop. Oren, well he is along for the ride.

The last day of 2016? Really!? 2016 has been a great year! A year of growth and a desire for more growth! Kids who are thankful. I have gotten to sub more and LOVE it! Vance has a good job. We make good memories with friends and family and we love being home. Sports are something we SO enjoy! Especially watching Merit and Willem play!
I would love to do a year in review today! But I have also decided I will put away at least half of the Christmas decorations. We have a lot! And I will try to get in the coop and shovel frozen poop. The big guys are enjoying the HUSKY game. I will be back before midnight...
