The cold weather and snow have finally hit the homestead this week. In fact the country kids got their first snow day too! I am trying really hard to get into the Christmas spirit, because, well, I’m running out of time till Christmas! While the country kids are working my last nerve, I decided to decorate the critter shed instead of a tree in the house. LOL I know, I am such a mean mama. I promise I’ll get the tree up in the house before Christmas Eve!
Life is never dull when you live with critters. There is pecking order drama in the hen house, the stray kitty we took in has gone into heat, and my pet rat’s health is declining. It’s hard sometimes to open your heart to animals. They live, die, and there is drama in between. But I can honestly say, they make every day better despite the little heart aches.
|Cinder informed me that due to cold weather and snow, the chickens have decided to skip going out.|
They have requested extra treats and cuddles.

|The oldest country kid performed at the Christmas band concert and I got a photo!!!! Not a good one as|
I was far away and it was dim, but that’s him in his festive Santa hat.

never downstairs and totally blending in…… might of happened
Hubby was knitting, I was sewing, and the oldest country kid
was busy building!
He may look like a man at 11, but his heart is all child on
a snowy winter day!
|I finished up some last minute Christmas gifts for the critters on my list. I made some homemade organic cat nip toys for two very lucky fur balls who call our house home. Organic cat nip is the best and I know they are going to love them!|
