Happy Birthday Girls!

March 11, 2009

The girls celebrated their 2nd birthday yesterday. I made them a chick-cake filled with their favorite treats—cracked corn, oats, raisins, dried cranberries, peanuts and oatmeal—tossed with a little peanut butter and yogurt. They devoured it before I could get a picture of them with the whole cake.

Actually, Roxanne first snatched the candles (not lit), before I could remove them. She zigzagged crazily towards the back of the run fighting off the other two who also now wanted those candles. I was laughing hysterically while yelling “DON’T EAT THE CANDLES ROXANNE”. The photos I tried to snap turned out blurry I was laughing so hard—sorry—it was quite a sight.

I got the girls as day-old chicks, tiny little balls of fluff:




Week Old Chicks

They’ve grown into quite the swingin’ chicks.

    I recognized Pegi’s card! Too bad the music that went with the card couldn’t be heard, but I guess we all know The Chicken Dance music!

    I recognized Pegi’s card. Too bad we couldn’t hear the music that happens when you open the card, but I guess we all know The Chicken Dance song!
