So ... this morning started off in an not so unusual way ... Easton throwing a fit about something ... I'm not even sure what it was as I am sitting here typing this. Anyways, needless to say both of our moods were sour (and with Todd out of town it was looking like a very long day!). However, I can say that in an instance both of our moods turned from grouchy to excited.
I went out to let the chickens out of the coop (normal morning activity) and I made our exciting discovery that we had 3 eggs in one of our nest boxes. Yes this was our first, second, and third eggs from our wonderful chickens (I may have to take back all the awful things I have said about them in the past). I will post pictures later of our cute little eggs.
So, as I come in from letting the chickens out and hold my discovery in my hand I come through the door and ask Easton "Guess what I have" and as I opened my hands, he screams "Eggs ... momma those are eggs ... are they from our chickens!!!" It was priceless!!!
We had to call Papa Kenny and tell him about the eggs, then Grandma Marlene, then Grandma Fran called us ... who would have thought a few chicken eggs could bring so much JOY!
As I am writing this at 1:45 in the afternoon our count is up to 4 eggs (Easton made me go check before he went down for his nap!)
