I bet Butch has to fight Melissa my sister-in-law off when they finally get to hold Benaiah!

Thank you God for this precious baby, and thank you God that Mom and baby are doing good!

My sister-in-law Addie (Baker) Higginbotham (my brother John’s wife) lost her father this morning.  He was such a precious man and he will be dearly missed.  Please send prayers and comfort to Addie and her brother Doug Baker, and her Aunt Bette Jarreau for their loss, as well as their families and the many friends that will miss Eddie.

We will post more information when we know more about the arrangements.

Pray for Arkansas

Posted on by 1 comment

Dear Friends and Family,

Last night, three devastating tornadoes hit the ground in Arkansas.  One of them was on the ground for over 80 miles and devastated the towns of Mayflower, and Vilonia.  One of the tornadoes came through a community called El Paso, just ten miles south of our house. As we sat together in the shelter at my Mom and Dad’s house, we heard a transformer blow, and then we could hear the tornado.  It was very scary, but we were fortunate that the tornado did not come to our house and we had no damage.

Several of my friends from the Vilonia area were not so lucky.  They have completely lost their houses.  There are 16 casualties reported so far, and the search is still ongoing through the rubble.

Please do NOT go to these areas.  Allow the city and county officials along with the National Guard to get the power lines up and make sure the loved ones are accounted for or recovered. After that, they will open for volunteers to help clear the debris. In the mean time, please call the Red Cross and offer your services or donations to them.

Please pray for these communities and that there will be no more loss of life found today.

Around the Compound – Busy Busy Days

Ok, this isn’t The Hubs, it’s just me.  I’m sure you are disappointed and you were waiting for the next farm report, but we have been so busy, he hasn’t really had time to sit here long enough to do a blog post.

So, I thought I would just share some fun pictures of the compound, and give you a hint of something exciting to come, that we have been working on.

First, we have had over 50 baby chicks born this month, and we still have another incubator full waiting to hatch.

Here they are in their little home.

And here is one of my favorites, a little Bannie chick. She is the tiniest thing ever.

There’s been lots of playing around the chicken yard.

Knucklehead plays with Amanda II quite a bit. Don’t ask what happened to Amanda the original. You could ask the neighbor’s dog though.

Knucklehead and Chicken Wing wished every one a happy Easter.

I tried to get Tori and Knucklehead to pose with Chicken Wing, but neither were excited about it. It’s still a good picture though.

And you know what has to be done when you have chickens around, the coop has to be cleaned out, which JT and The Hubs took care of.

The Hubs has done a lot of planting.

We ride around on the mule checking out our animals and gardens and almost run into fence posts just so I can get a selfie of us. LOL

Knucklehead plays a lot of basketball.

When he gets tired of that, he jumps on his pogo stick.

And for real fun, he rides his motorcycle.

The first clean up of the year, Knucklehead and I picked up about three loads of sticks just like this.

As a family, we took time to go for ice cream!

One of the best things to happen this month, was my great-nephew Skylar got to come for a visit, and he actually opened up his Christmas presents on Easter.

He had a lot of fun playing with chickies and looking at the hogs, and I took this shot of him with his Dad, Jonathan. Two peas in a pod.

He loves to be outside. And if you notice the ring around his mouth, he likes Hershey Kisses too!

His favorite inside activity is playing with trains. JT helped him get his train track set up.

Speaking of nephews, my nephew Ben and his wife, Esbeida are expecting a baby boy, Benaiah, any day now! We are so excited for baby Benaiah to make his entrance into the world. Ben and Esbeida got this picture made and I just love it!

We went to Esbeida’s baby shower and I have to say she racked up the gifts. I think it will be a while before Benaiah needs anything.

After the last storm, we had a beautiful rainbow!

The newest editions to the compound are Billy and Nanny, and we are in love with them already.

And last but not least, a little tease of something to come. We spent a whole day filming “Around The Compound” with gopro cameras and drones and I plan to make a video soon. Here is a still shot from one of the drone flights.
