An old man, a fish, and some hair. Lots of hair.

Yet another birthday in our household. Check out this old man!


Check out his birthday cake I made! Vanilla bean ice cream, oreo crust, oreo layer, topped with carmel, hot fudge, and what else but more oreos.
A beautiful girl.
Madeline made carmel corn.


Such long hair!

A large pile of hair!
A brand new haircut!

Another haircut though no personal haircutting was involved with this one. lol
The cat loves to bring us mice, moles, birds, and other such treats. We were a bit shocked one morning to see that he had brough us a fish! Where you ask in the land of suburbia did he find a fish? Umm in the neighbors Japanese Garden. They won't miss it right?

Sick Nomy on her favorite sleeping spot. She won't sleep on me as she just wants to nurse (and puke).
Other news. We got rid of the two aggressive chickens. Love Craigslist where we sold them for $15 each. The 4 month old pullets seem to have adjusted now. Took about 3 days but they will now come out of the coop and run into the outside grassy area. The other chickens don't seem to notice them. With the exception of Goldie who I believe is now top hen. She definately tells them she is boss but does not attack them like the Rhode Island Reds. We are down to 10 chickens now with 6 laying currently.

So great you sold those chickens!

I really want that recipe for the icecream cake! My husband would love that!

Belly Mama,
There really was no recipe. lol I took a springform pan and placed oreos all around the bottom. Next spread softened ice cream over the top, then crumbled oreos for another layer, then more ice cream. Finally even more crumpled oreos and drizzled with hot fudge and carmel. Freeze till firm and remove sides of pan. The ice cream melted a bit in the process filling the cracks on the bottom.

Shhh... don't tell anyone but Naomi is at the top of our list so far. It's one we both like. But that could change. :)

PLEASE let me know if your hubby does that. My husband is incredibly busy, but I would definitely mention it to him. I think he would love that. What kind of meat are they going to butcher?

Have your hubby check out the following links...
