We made out first Craig's List purchase, a saddle. Never in my life did I think I would be the proud owner of two horse saddles. Technically, Emily paid for 80% of the new saddle. She sure knows how to save money. I'm proud of her.
Amber and Max
Samuel took Little J for a sled ride while I snapped pictures. Sam takes him on quite a wild ride, but Little J is easygoing; he just giggles through the whole thing.
Our chickens, 6 of them. That was last week. Now we have 11, but the newest additions are pretty shy. Emily's horse friend T called wondering if we wanted 10 or 15 chickens. I squeaked out, I guess I'll take 5. She was here 30 minutes later with a dog kennel of chickens for us.
Amber loves playing prairie girl. She dresses in all her layers of prairie dresses and long underwear or thick tights and heads outside for sometimes an entire afternoon, playing with the chickens, horses, dog and cats. On this particular day she was collecting the chicken pecked grapefruit halves, adding them to some slush and calling it honey butter.
