we have chicks!

Pretty sure John thinks I'm crazy, but I've convinced him to build me a chicken coop. I mean, I think I'm crazy. I'm a little terrified of birds so wanting chickens is an interesting thing for me.

dots is upstairs

We took the plunge this weekend and moved Dottie upstairs to her new room in hopes that she will have a chance to get used to it for a week or 2 before the new littles arrive. The transition has gone fairly smoothly. I guess we'll see how the rest of the week plays out.... Continue Reading →

With the kitchen done, and RTB arriving soon, we decided to go ahead and start getting things moving on the upstairs expansion. No we're not crazy, the actual work won't start until springish 2015 - we're just looking to get a headstart on the planning part. So we hired a great architect to draw us... Continue Reading →
