Easter Egg Hunt 2015

I thought it would be great fun to host an Easter Egg Hunt this year despite the 3 feet of snow we still had left on the ground and ice-cold temperatures.  It was a B.Y.O.B.B. event.  Bring your own baskets and boots! Better bring mittens, hats, parka and snow pants too!  We have the perfect setting, lots of farm fresh eggs and two resident rabbits that could help hide them so I set about planning, decorating and baking.  I’d like to share some of the things I did with you. First came the decorating.  I admit I am a Pinterest addict and almost all of the creative ideas I have come from there.  Take this adorable jelly bean tree.  It is so basic in design, the supplies are easy enough to find and you can make one in under an hour!  My kind of project. Find yourself a good branch…

Goings on for a Sunday morning.

Pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, whatever your pleasure, and sit a spell.  it’s Sunday. Just a little summary of the farm family goings on. First we have the Hippie Chicks and the Guinea Hens.  Not much going on there.  They basically do their own thing, expect treats and mind their own business..except the guinea hens are nuts.  Every night the Hippie Chicks tuck themselves into bed in the Hippie Chick Inn and the Guinea Hens are all over the place.  I have to bribe them with mealworms to get them inside. (maybe they aren’t that dumb??) Then we have Mo the mini donkey and Thunder the mini horse.  They are a team with Thunder leading the way.  They also control the barnyard.  They go where they want and do what they want and everyone lets them.  Right now Mo is mad at me.  I’m not sure why…
