Colson's Easter Chickies!

I am not Crazy, just HORMONAL. We are the proud new parents of 6 baby chicks. I cannot say no!

We were in Tractor Supply Thursday night, and I saw all the baby chicks. They were so cute and so sweet and Colson was so excited, so I bought us 6(six) baby Straight Run chicks. I have not thought out the whole chick parenting process, so please don't ask me what I am going to do with them, I just know that they are in my kitchen getting setteled in their new home.

Colson wanted to name them all Freddie, which is the name he names EVERYTHING; fish, stuffed animals, fishing baits, worms, fish, I mean EVERYTHING. I was able to convince him to let me name the black chick Penelope, and then he decided to name one of the yellow ones Twinkle, ("you know like the song, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star Mom"-Colson). But the rest are still Freddie. I will keep updating on how the chicks are doing, but so far, they are fun and we are having fun with them. (the one Colson is holding is Twinkle, he says)

**And for those of you who are wondering what Jeremiah's reaction was, well, while I was in Tractor Supply, I sent him this picture,

and he thought they were so cute, and is actually excited about them. He has not got to meet them yet, he is up at the lake, and wont be home till Saturday.

**Stay Tuned for more on the Easter Chickies!!**

Awe sisser...those are so sweet! I want to call one Twinkie, like...... you know, a Hostess Twinkie. Sean wants to know when he can come over for Chicken and Dumplings.

My mom and dad were in Tractor Supply last week and she said she saw the sign advertising chicks...she wanted to get some but my dad said no : (
I just told her you got six and she said she was glad to know some of them went to a good home : )
