And Then There Was One

I have figured out how to get photo that Micah uloads from his iphone. Yay! Here's some old ones mixed in with recent ones...

Them critters are everywhere

Our first fully successful character meet and greets when we visited Epcot with my Dad. Now, the girls are not longer scared (though they occasioally just freeze and stare awkwardly) and are working on their autograph books now each time we go to disney.
Here's from last Friday. Iphone camera is officially inferior in low-light or colored-light situations.
Sweet kids. This is Angela with a friend from church- I got to hang out with the little ones while Daddys took the big kids to splash mountain.

They have a Christmas program going on now where Elsa lights up the castle with her magic ice powers. Silly Natalie was not really asleep.

And these are from our hurrication in Lakeland. We found this family fun center to kill time and the girls had so much fun.

Finally, some grisly news about the chickens. Our neighbor's cat got into their pen out back and killed two of the new chicks. We're working now on integrating Cauliflower, our 7-week-old leghorn, who survived. It's much easier now in our brand new coop! Micah did so much work last weekend to make this suitable for the chickens and so far they seem to be taking to it quite well. The kids, too.

 I'm pretty bummed and will still be looking around for a buff orpington and a barred rock chicken to add to the flock. We'll see when the opportunity arrives! Speck and Red have figured out where to lay eggs in the new coop- yay!- but blondie seems to be molting still. It's been a solid 2 months of no eggs from her, and before that she had only been laying for a few weeks after taking a break due to the heat for all of July and August! Freeloading punk.
