About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Some Of My Christmas Decorations

Good Saturday morning! They say the sun is going to come out for a while today and it will be close to 60 degrees here. I sure will enjoy that if it comes to pass. I better enjoy it while I can because the forecast for later turns off COLD.



Look at this picture up above. On the right there is the potted plant that Dad and Mary sent me for Christmas. It is growing!



I took a picture of this nativity scene that I have had handed down to me from Mama and Daddy. It is very old. On the back of the stable it has a little sticker that says 'Roses...$1.37'. They got it from a little store called Roses many years ago and can you imagine only $1.37. I take very good care of it. The star on top was looking a bit shabby and the top tip was coming off so I fixed it up with some glue, white paint and silver glitter. The hay that you place inside the little stable is both old and new hay. There was less and less of it as time went by so I took some scissors and cut up some new hay from the wheat straw I buy. I did that last year. The roof looks like it could use some hay on it again. Maybe I will do that next year when I pull it out for Christmas.



This is a wonderful ice skating scene that Ians mom bought for me one year. I love it so much and it always brings a smile to my face to pull it out and set it up. She loved Christmas so much.



This is our tree that we went out and got in the rain that day. The picture didnt turn out as well as I would have liked. It blurred a little, but this is our Christmas tree with the lights lit. It really is a pretty tree. The picture didnt do it justice.

I guess it is time to put all these things away now til next year. Seems like when I finally do get in the mood it is all over.

The sun is coming out now so I think I will get moving and enjoy it! I have a video to post and then I will be on my way. Everyone have a great weekend. :O)

Kelly your decorations are beautiful.  I haven't commented in a few days because my computer got a virus....so I had to take it into the shop for a few days.  I lost everything I had on it, but at least it could be fixed.  Your plant is beautiful, & I love the pot with the cardinals on it.  I'm like you once I get ready to enjoy Christmas it's over.  Have a good weekend.

Everything looks beautiful. The nativity scene is quite a collectors item with the price and name of the store still on it. Maybe it would be nice to add the year it was bought if you know. Paula

I think the nativity scene is beautiful and believe it would cost a bit more than $1.37 ~ isn't that something!  The ice skating scene is lovely too and your tree looks to be perfectly shaped.  Trees are so hard to get good pictures of, at least that is my experience.  I wish it was 60 here...we are supposed to get really cold days next week - that doesn't make me the least bit happy!
