Merry Christmas!

A very mild, sweet, and simple Christmas this year. The kids got a few gifts... all of which they love, and we made treats for neighbors and family. We had a laid back Christmas Eve party with my family. It was wonderful. Today we are hanging out and watching videos and eating popcorn and left over sugar cookies... Don is working. Just a simple, quiet, and very perfect day.

The chickens though! They have been giving us Christmas gifts all week... every day this week we have gotten 4 - 6 eggs. For the last three days we have gotten six a day. Which means two dark brown, two green, and two light brown. One from each of my sweet girls. :)

Beautiful aren't they?

What is even more beautiful is that it is snowing right now. I have lived here 27 out of 29 years of my life and I remember one white Christmas... and today, it is snowing. So beautiful!

Just reveling in the simple beauties around me today.

Much love and a Merry Christmas to you all!

green eggs? Okay, now I've heard the story "Green Eggs and Ham" but I didn't think there was such a thing as green eggs in real life unless you dyed them green!

Merry Christmas!

Well the yolks are not green. lol... so it won't make "green eggs" like green eggs and ham, but they are colored green or light blue when they are laid. They are from the 'pretty' chickens... Aracona's.

Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful ladies! I hope you had a beautiful day! I will check your blogs tomorrow so I can see what is new with you all this season.

Tons of love!

Merry Christmas Val!

So, what are you doing with all of the eggs? Pretty!

I have been giving them away as Christmas gifts for the foodies in my life so far. lol... Planning on never eating a factory farm egg ever again. ;) Not sure how that is going to work out next year, but for this year, I should have a good chance of that being just what happens.
