The kids did a great job on painting the horse barn. It looks so good!

Little baby boy just keeps on growing! He's up two more pounds since last month and now is up to 24 pounds! I've never had any baby weigh this much at only six months old. He's a delightful little boy who loves his big brother so very much!

We happened to spot some day old chicks and ducklings at our local feedstore the other day. We'd been talking about getting ducks for awhile now, so figured we'd better get some while they're selling.
While they started out being super cute and tiny, they are fast growers and oh, so nasty! They already poop as much as our adult chickens do, and its impossible to keep their area clean and DRY.
I will be moving them outside just as soon as the weather allows it. We got nine altogether, three each of the following breeds: white pekin, Rouen, and Indian Runners. Assorted genders.

After dealing with our old septic and all its issues for far too long, we finally got everything re-routed to hook up to our good septic and we got rid of the old 1930's septic. It's a good thing too, because the old septic pretty much fell apart as soon as the tractor touched it.
It's such a relief now having everything fixed properly and knowing all the pipes are new and strong. The roots that we found growing under and around the pipes were massive and no doubt putting pressure on the old pipes.
This big boy is five months old now! He's a whopping 22 pounds, and wears size 12month clothes. He's a wonderful little guy who is almost sleeping through the night- usually only waking once. He's teething, and loves to grab my face and tries to chew on it. Haha!

Wow! I can't believe its only January and yet we're having temperatures in the mid sixties! It's sure making me think about spring. My fingers are itching to dig in the dirt and do some planting. But for now, we're just spending our time taking walks around the property so the little guys can get some fresh air and sunshine.
