Fun times

I’ve been so anxious because our chickens are now 21 weeks old and I read that they usually start laying eggs around week 20. Three days ago I went out to the chicken coop to feed and check water and close them up for the night. I was looking around and just counting the girls and looking at them up on their roost when I looked over and saw it. Yep, our first egg 🙂 I was so excited! There was nothing the next day but yesterday morning I found the second egg. This morning there was another one. I still have no idea who is laying but I find myself running out there every hour or so to check.
They have also discovered how to hop the fence and get in the goat barn and then the pasture. Can you imagine how funny it is seeing me, carrying a newborn baby, with 2 other little boys following along trying to chase those chickens back in the yard. These are fun times.

Speaking of my sweet little boys, they are so much fun. It’s getting close to Christmas and Carson is so excited. I keep having to remind him the true meaning of Christmas and we’ve been reading a lot in the bible and learning more about Jesus. We have an Elf that came to visit and he’s been very bad at night while we sleep. He likes to play Carson’s DS game and eat cheerios. He turned our milk green one night. He wrote Carson’s name on his mirror and wrote “Ha Ha” in shaving cream on Daddy’s mirror.

We are going back to church tomorrow and I’m a little nervous on how I will manage with all 3 by myself. I’m sure it will be fine but Calen has been a little fussy at times so hopefully it will be okay.
