Chicken Saga

So the chicken saga continues this summer. Last summer we had a great time with our three chickens until a raccoon attacked! This summer we reinforced the cage so that no wild animals could get at our four chickens. I guess we didn't plan for domestic animals though! The neighbors two dogs got out and one of them nudged open the egg door latch and snagged a chicken. It then proceeded to run down the highway with the chicken in its mouth! So now we are back to three chickens. Rebecca didn't seem to care much that a dog took off with one of her chickens.

Before and After

I love a good "before and after" projects and I'm hoping to have a lot of them this summer! I finished my first project today and here it is.

I found this bench at Goodwill for $2. I wanted a sturdy bench for Rebecca in the kitchen and I thought this one would work well. It's cute enough, but doesn't really go with the kitchen. So I gave it a make over.

I used left over paint from our red wall in the dinning area and picked up some scrapbooking paper to match. I love the finished look. It still needs to have a coat of clear varnish so the paper is protected.

Wedding Weekend

On June 12th my brother Jon married Tonya. We had a great weekend with the whole family. We also saw extended family that we hadn't seen in about 6 years at our wedding. The whole weekend was a lot of fun!
Rebecca was a flower girl in the wedding and although no flower pedals were actually dropped, she looked so cute!!
Congratulations Jon and Tonya!

I know that there is a picture in my baby book after I did this exact same thing. Making a mess of your room can be exhausting!
