We celebrated Sadie's birthday, she turned four. Here are the gifts waiting for the Birthday Girl! Can you believe I found that sweet happy birthday cake plate at Goodwill!
Tatum wanted to make her cake so she asked what Sadie wanted. Sadie said "I want a heart shaped cake with yellow cake inside and chocolate frosting, with flowers and sprinkles and a picture of me on it". I think Tatum pulled it off pretty well! And Sadie was so excited and said she loved it:) Tatum felt pretty proud about that...melted my heart.
Sadie could not wait until Daddy got home so we could eat it. This is her waiting patiently, I even caught a glimpse of her kissing the cake plate:)
Our first little crop of peas!
My hollyhock finally bloomed...gorgeous!
My sister and her husband came into town and spent the week with us. I love sister time:)
Lots of crafting happened while she was here. We worked on some Christmas ornaments and presents and I did a few pages in my Smash book.
Of course what kind of hostess would I be if we didn't hit up a few vintage shops while she was here? I scored this beautiful tablecloth!
One of our chickens turned out to be a rooster, Ruby was now Rubio, and we cannot have a rooster where we live. So when he started crowing last week at five in the morning I started to get ulcers thinking I was going to have an angry mob of neighbors at my door. I tried to give him away but nobody wanted him. Finally yesterday was the last straw after he crowed over and over every few minutes. I decided I was going to put on my big girl pants and attempt to end this rooster's life, even though I was so sad because I raised him from a baby and have never killed anything bigger than a spider. So I went to YouTube, cause that's where you go if you want to learn anything right? I cried the whole time! I couldn't do it. I finally remembered a lady that I knew had a farm and called her up and she came right away! Thank you Lord! I felt so relieved, he now has a good home where he can crow to his heart's content and I am very happy with my five hens and lack of ulcers:)
