I think we finally are getting a little cooler weather, at least in the mornings and evenings. I know the girls are liking the cooler weather as we are getting at least one egg a day, some days two. My friend Melissa (hey honey) has three chickens herself and she told me to listen to hear them lay as they make quite the noise. When I went out to check them in the afternoon, they were all walking around, but Alice was sitting in the nesting box, so I closed it back up and just hung out for a while. I could hear her cluck cluck clucking away, but nothing loud. After a while she walked out and headed down the ramp.
I asked her if she was done. She didn't answer me, so I checked anyway, and look what she left me.
Isn't that big? Now we know that Alice is laying the lighter colored ones. It is so big I could not close the egg carton on it. Melissa said it might be a double yolk one.
While I was blog hopping one day I headed over to one of my favorite stampers Renee Van Stralen and found this cute card, and I loved the lay out, so I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use to make the same layout. Thanks for the inspiration Renee.

I was watching the news when they were showing the miners being rescued. That was something wasn't it? Watching the families being reunited, the wives running to their husbands, and everyone singing and celebrating. I can not even imagine what they must have been going through, the men trapped as well as the families wondering if they would ever see their loved ones alive again. God sure was taking care of everyone. I am thinking there might be a few babies born in about 9 months, what do you think?
That's it for me today, have an awesome Thursday and thanks for stopping in!

Cute card – holy cow – huge egg!!!!! Alice is doing a great job!
The whole thing with the miners is just amazing. How happy they must be to be back with their families.

Hi Di. I'm laughing because when I first saw the picture of the egg on fb, I thought it was your hand all swollen and I was thinking, Oh no. Not something else swollen on Di! Then I put my glasses on and ooh la la. That is some egg!
What a sweet Halloween card, Diana!
Carey Rogers says
Great job Alice. I think I would be making a bunch of noise if something that big came out of my hind quarters!! I was at work when the first miner came out. I was watching it on TV with tears coming down. It was so wonderful. The card is great with a very catchy layout. I may have to CASE this.

I know nothing about eggs, but that does appear to be huge! Great job, Alice.

Oh good, the girls are finally producing! I would like some day to have chicken's too. But I live on a lake in a resort area. I don't think the people who pay the big bucks to vacation on the lake would take that too well though. rofl~ That's one big egg though. Love the card and the layout. Very cute.

Holy Moly! That's one huge egg! Those girls are out to impress you. Pretty soon you'll have a hen house full of eggs and they'll be competing to see who can lay the biggest egg for you.
Super cute card too. Love the black waffle paper technique used.
