We went to Trunk or Treat Saturday night this year for Halloween. We did the "Wizard of Oz" theme this year.

Dorothy and the Wicked Witch

The cutest Dorothy EVER!!!!

Toto and Dorothy

Jake wasn't able to get the Tin Man costume put together in time, so he's the "Wizard"

Zowie wasn't scared of me and she even kissed me. That was a surprise. Who would want to kiss this face?!?!

Our chickens are getting bigger!! One of our Rhode Island Reds started laying eggs!! Jake and Zowie were taking a nap. I went outside to check on the chickens and found our first egg. I was soooo excited that I woke Jake up and showed him. When Zowie came down from her nap, I told her about the egg. She got dressed and went outside herself to go check the chickens. She came back inside excited and yelling, "Mom, I got an egg." Sure enough, there was another egg. She loves checking to see if there are eggs. We'll see how long that lasts.

This is Chicken Nugget, the one that's laying eggs

Chicken Nugget is in the back. Lady Speckles is the Gold Laced Wyndotte in front of her.

The white one is Freckles, the Delaware. We have another Rhode Island Red named Toodles.

Here's the first egg!!!

Land Owners

We bought almost 41 acres of land in St. Johns. We've never made an investment like this before and it's exciting!!! There are large Juniper trees, but no pine, bummer. Oh well. It's at 6000 feet elevation and it gets some snow in the winter. A nice place to get away in the summer.

We saw this huge hole in the ground. We think rabbit, but not sure.

There was a game trail through our land also. We saw elk/deer/cow droppings and foot prints everywhere.

There's also a ton of Indian pottery everywhere!!! I love it.
