13 Below

My car reached -13 this morning driving Asa to school. Frankie actually was like the pic above. He stayed outside too long and froze his feet and ears. When he finally came in he was shaking his head and limping around. Silly Dog...

Thank you Michael Garcia!

For your courage to do what's right and standing up for a little boy who could of been Asa! Read this article, it makes me happy that there are people like Michael Garcia and so very sad at the same time that there are such ignorant assholes in the world, yet alone the United States of America!

Righteously cold outside! When I looked at the thermometer at 7:00 this morning it said 4 degrees, 10 minutes later it said 2 degrees. After being spoiled last week with warmer then normal temps we are suppose to get blasted for the next few days. BRRRRRRR-R-R-R!!!

Here we are...

Here we are in 2013. I am posting this in HTML because that seems to be the only way I can get photos to upload! Anyone else having issues? It's really frustrating Blogger... I've done all the things they recommend and they didn't work. So pardon any spelling errors cause you apparantly can't spell check in HTML... The Henry Household has been sick. I was sick a week and a half ago with the stomach bug, then Gracyn was sick with a cold, then Asa got the cold and it's been a doozy for him. I haven't caught the cold (knock on woood) but Brian has... Here are some pics of Gracyn and I on our sick day.
Still a cutie even when he's sick, but he won't stay out of the darn pots and pan cabinet! Ha, Ma - I know there are a gazillion photos of me doing the same thing - LOL We've had a nice January thaw and I think it was close to 60 degrees yesterday! I told my co-workers that January thaw is good for the soul but not the snow! It's all but gone. Brian has had it and is selling his snowmobile, fine by me because I haven't been able to go for 6 years, that would be the same amount of time we've had kids if you catch my drift. At least we have something to look forward to for Spring. We are currently down to 12 Chickens and 1 of those is Winston the Rooster. One we've lost to a hawk and another we think to a fox, just when we were getting a dozen eggs a day too! Well, call us Chicken Crazay but we are going for it again this spring. We've got an order in for 25 more baby chicks. Their hatch day happens to be around Brian's Birthday and so he'll be getting chickens again this year :) I think we are going to try to keep all 25 this year. We gave away the majority of our order last year and every time one of those little babies left it was a little sad. We are switching it up though and getting a smorgashbord.
Asa is so excited and we've marked the baby chicks incubation days on the calendar. I put the photos on the fridge so we can look at these pretty girls everyday until they arrive. Gracyn loves to look at the pictures and says "den". I'm hoping all this posts well!
