Let the fun begin!

Well I haven't been too good about posting on here have I? In my defense with my limited access to internet on my computer and my phone not liking the next blogger format it's been a little difficult. ANYWAY we've been quite busy. As many may now Ben and I have been moving forward with our project of building a house. There's been a lot of leg work for the last few months, admittedly mostly by Ben, but we're finally getting to the point where there will be physical work done. The last two weekeneds have already been filled with speding time out on our lot hooking things up, cleaning up trash, and now moving dirt to prepare the pad for our house. We are still a little ways out from starting construction but it is coming quickly. Hopefully everything goes according to plan but you never know what's going to happen! Here's just a couple pictures of one of the biggest progjects we'll ever take on!

Life Lately

I promise I haven't fallen off the face of the planet, just busy. Here's some highlihts of what I've been up to.

We purchased more chickens. These are strictly meat birds, meaning we plan to eat them. We got 4 that mature really quick and will be ready to eat in about 6 more weeks and 2 that will be ready in 14 weeks. They are quickly running out of room so Ben is going to have to come up with a solution since the big chickens will kill them if they fraternize together.

We had a baby shower for my dear friend Erin. I was in charge of decor so that's why there are a lot of pictures of decorations. This first picture is of my dearest Ruthie and her baby boy Luke.

Instead of playing baby shower games we made little girly headbands for baby Brynn.

We made the headbands with clips so they could be clipped on headbands and then later into hair!

Brynn's mama Erin.

A giant smiths maple bar from my work crew for my birthday. It was AWESOME.

We had a rather nasty wind storm here yesterday. Elsewhere it was probably raining, we got dust.

Just a cute one of Henry I forgot I had taken. My picture spaces are quickly being taken over by pictures of my nephews. Oh how I adore them all!
