December 31st we closed on our new house and started plowing snow (there was a blizzard...of course!). We started moving in on January 1st and now that it's February, I think I can officially say we're all moved in! There are still pictures and things to hang on the walls, but most things are unpacked or put away in storage. (I'm sure it will take me the rest of the year to sort through those things - hah!)
We have 5 acres now, which the kids love to run and play in. There are somewhere around 40 pear trees with four different varieties. Two roosters and a hen stuck around...soon to be one rooster and a hen, I hope! We're going to build a new chicken house in the next month and get us some chicks. I'm hoping to have about 10 good layers so that we can have enough eggs for our family and a few extra to sell.
