Chickens' first snow

As you will see the chickens don't like the snow very much. I guess I will have to build a overhang at the front of the coop so that they have an area that will stay dry when it snows. I guess I would not like to run around in the snow in my bare feet either burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

This is a video I took moments after Elliot was born. Crazy that I was together enough to film this.

Back to some farm stuff

Here is the progress I have made on the greenhouse. I still need to put on the door, build shelves and set up the heater. This greenhouse is about 5 times the size of the one we were using last year and will be much easier to move around in when full. The season is fast approaching and it's hard to believe that we will be starting seeds in about 4 weeks.

Bear Love

We we're using the baby's stuffed bear to practice how to put the baby in the car seat and just set the bear aside for a moment and this is what happened.
