Class Picture ----- Gone Crazy!

We recently needed to submit a "class photo" for our yearbook, and this year, instead of individual photos....and because I forgot about them until 15 minutes before I had to go turn them in....we decided to do a group shot with the fresh snow in the back ground.

A nice "Class Photo"

And because we can't be too serious for too long......

Fun times

JR headed out this afternoon, and started pulling together all the scraps of plywood we had...along with the platform of his old bed, that is no longer used. And as boys do, his imagination went to work.

Daddy came home and saw JD giving him a hand, so he joined in on the fun.

And here is the new "fort" --- complete with a guard and everything.

The side view....

And inside....

Separation Anxiety

A few minutes ago, a very nice couple came and picked up our turkeys to take them to their new home.  When I came inside, I was greeted by the quiet of a bunch of sleeping chicks.  When I peeked in at them, I saw the funniest thing! 

We have the little chicks separated from the bigger chicks, because the bigger ones were beating them up.  But the little ones want to go over there SO BAD!  They keep sticking their heads through the fencing, but can't go any further.

So what did they do?

Three of the little ones fell asleep, with their heads as close to the big ones as they could get!

Standing up, heads through the fencing.  I guess this could be labeled "Separation Anxiety."

Of course right after I took the pictures, they woke up and started running around.  But that was a sight! :-P
