A lot of catching up to do....

Hello dear friends.

Despite my vow to not let other social media take time away from my blog, I find that I have neglected it none the less.  I'm not sure if it is all social media's fault, or if life is just too busy right now....either way, I do apologize for my scant posts this year.

I hope you all had a lovely and blessed Easter.  I remembered to take a lot of pictures, despite the hustle and bustle of the day, and I would like to share them with you now.   
Our grand children are growing like weeds, and I feel so blessed to have them in our life.  Each one is so sweet in their own special way.

A Beautiful Easter Sunrise
Sweet Allie after Mass - in the Easter Dress I made her.

Our oldest son, Scott, holding little Elena and Allie again.
Dear Hubby holding Elena, awaiting our Easter Sunday breakfast.
Our youngest son, Drew, and his adorable family, Peter, Maria & Little Joe.  They are getting so big!
The kiddos posing by the garden pond on the patio.....

....Joey would NOT look at the camera - he is usually so smiley!!

Chris & I posing on our front porch.  Not the best picture, but we both never seemed to be looking at the right place or smiling at the same time!  Worse than the grandkiddos - LOL

Now, many of you know of my love for chickens, and the flock that we have at our home.  Well, this year I am venturing into a little bit of chicken business (not monkey business mind you).  We are raising and selling pullets (females).   My first batch is nearly all spoken for, and the second batch is due soon.

Here they are at about 3 weeks

Enjoying some fresh air today - at 6 weeks old.
I've also acquired this beautiful rooster, and he is lovin' his new lady friend.  We'll be hatching eggs from this pair to sell as well.
Well, I suppose I should head off to bed now.  We are in the midst of a stormy night with rain, thunder and lightning...I actually think I should get off the computer and shut down for now....so take care, and I will be back soon.

God bless


  1. Lovely family photos. Thank you for sharing with us. I have been missing your blog posts a lot. Life has held me away from blogging lately as well, and from quilting. A lot of posts were pre-scheduled, lol. It is life, as they say.

  2. Hi Wendy, You have a beautiful family, thanks for sharing all the lovely pictures. Good luck on your new business. I grew up on a chicken farm, I always loved the little peeps. Hugs, Lecia

  3. such a beautiful post.
    love cucki x

  4. You have such a beautiful family and I love the dress you made, it is so cute on her. Your photo is wonderful, I am not photogenic, so it is rare to get one of me, lol. Raising chickens sounds fun, but i am sure it is a lot of work too.


  5. Beautiful (or as Prudence says bee-u-tee-ful) family pictures. Love the baby chicks too.

    And, finally I got to see your DIL - who named Vlad. id you know that Vlad has written his beginnings in my soon to be book, "Three Bears & A Vulture" (of course the vulture being Vlad). I must be insane - taking on writing a book.



Thanks for commenting on my Blog - your message will be reviewed and posted soon! God bless
