    Hi all,
    Well I woke up to the best birthday presents ever this morning. My kids made me pancakes and sausage for breakfast in bed this morning, and they also gave me a pair of pants and a really nice top. My littlest won a baseball cap in one of those quarter machines and won a hat, which she gave me this morning (I still think she should have kept it, but I gave her a big hug and said ty). Then I went out to let chickens out of the coop... and found the BIGGEST egg layed to date by "momma hen" I just had to take a picture of it... I couldnt believe how big it was compared to the others she has been laying... at least now DH can make me a cake and not have to go to the store [​IMG] (we ran out of eggs yesterday). Plus, all the kids did most of their chores without even being asked. What more could a mom ask for!
    Hope you all have a great day... Its lookin good so far here so I Know I will... who knows maybe more of my hens will start laying today!!! Wouldn't that be terrific!!!!!!!
