Between Thanksgivings

Well, we had one family Thanksgiving yesterday and another one is coming up on Thursday, so right now, we are between Thanksgivings.  We were fortunate to be able to see my family yesterday for Thanksgiving at my Mamaw and Papaw's house.  We head up to Nathaniel's parents for the actual holiday.  Right now, the kids are practically buzzing from excitement.  Two trips in one week!   They still have school tomorrow, though.

The weather has gotten much colder.  We did turn on the heat lamp for the chickens while we were gone, as it got down to about 15 degrees and didn't make it above 30.  They could have handled it, but we do spoil them a bit.  It's the first really cold snap, and we weren't going to be around to see how they were doing.  We do keep a heated waterer in the coop in the winter.  Otherwise, they wouldn't get much to drink.

Malachi enjoys making "levels" on paper of his own versions of video games.  Today, Lydia brought me her version: chickens.  To win, you have to avoid stepping in chicken poop!

And lastly, 6 kids on a couch:
 Because what could be better than 6 kids on a couch, unless of course, we had 7 or 8 kids to put on the couch!  ;)
