New hen house

The coop Corey worked so hard to build this spring has started to fall apart. This was no fault of Corey's, it was the design. The boards were just not substantial enough to support moving it all the time. The time had come to make a better abode for the winter. Corey (with the help of his friend, Jeremy) built this coop over the last few weeks. It even has a layer of insulation all the way around it to keep the hens toasty warm in the winter. Lucky chickens indeed.

Lily loves watching the chickens scratch and look for tasty little bugs.

We also hung up Lily's new swing today. A hand-me-down from our friends Jeremy and Jennifer.

And since it is fall and the colors are so pretty, I had to take a few more portraits of the girl wearing a special sweater given to her by her great-aunt Sandy.

Me too Corey.
Love the sweater. Also the little tummy popping over her pants. I guess there's been no problems with her trying to feed her.
Looks like Fall is definitely in the air.
Nice job on the chicken coop Corey.

Hi there1 i found your blog through the domestic adoption group on Ravelry :)

Lily is just adorable. Your old posts of when you met her brought back so many memories of meeting our son Jackson when he was 11 hours old.

Just wanted to pop in and say hi!
