Why Don’t You Just Marry Her?

by Stefani on 22-September-2008

I knew it would come, the day that my men would find their true loves – the day that the desire of their hearts would be nothing more than to lay in the grass with their beloved, hold her, and whisper to her the words that are meant only for her ears. 

And now that day has arrived. Time sure does fly, huh? 

Girls and Boys in the Grass

My gallant men are no small potatoes on the dancefloor either. 


The boys AND the girls can dip just as well as any of those turkeys on Dancing With the Stars. 
This one's a little coy though. 

Some Girls Want to be Chased

Some girls are like that… they want to be chased. 
My guys insisted on having a picnic with their ladies. 


I insisted on handwashing, which they thought was "totally lame" (when did they start saying that?). 

Yes, well, salmonella is lame too. 

And on that appetizing note, I'd like to direct your attention to the upper left corner of the page. 
You'll see there a new addition, "From Our Home to Yours." In that space, I hope to give a little back to all the generous, encouraging, talented, inspiring folks who frequent these parts. 

So far, there's a quick-link reference to our recipes, because the boys and the girls all agree that every party is better with food. 

On the days to come, I hope to add similar pages for family projects and whatever else I can dream up, so keep your eye on that corner 🙂

Happy New Week to you, one and all!

Thanks for putting this together!!
I’ve read some of your recipes in the past and thought to myself that I will make this someday – hope I can find it when I need it. Now it’s one click away…..no searching.
Great idea for all of us who thrive off of letting others sort and find the recipes worth making! (could replace the word “recipes” with crafts, sewing projects, lessons, etc.)
Thanks for your donations!

Looks like a fun picnic! I love your new banner, especially the photo with the wee toad.

“salmonella is lame, too.” I love that. Heh.

Aunt LoLo September 22, 2008 at 7:51 am

Well, your men do have good taste!

Love the new recipes link – now I can find all your yummy stuff! Thanks!

Amy September 22, 2008 at 7:52 am

Okay you’re killing me with the chicken photos. Have I mentioned my complete fear and utter distaste for them? Just so you don’t feel badly – I’m afraid of all birds. Now you have to tell me something secret about you…

nicole September 22, 2008 at 7:58 am

i would have to agree , ” salmonella is lame too!” great post! and about your boys finding their loves , well at least you know the girls !! LOL! :)0

Alicia A. September 22, 2008 at 8:05 am

Miranda September 22, 2008 at 8:11 am

Okay, I was just cracking up over this post! Love the new header and can’t wait to check out your new link.

My boys made rubberband guns from your tutorial yesterday. They had a blast and played with them all afternoon. They are really captivated by your blog and that there are other boys out there doing such cool things.

Diana September 22, 2008 at 8:18 am

Lovely post, your boys and their girls look wonderful together!

Baba September 22, 2008 at 9:08 am

Great new link area. Thanks!

Katie September 22, 2008 at 9:08 am

OH….chicken love. We have it bad here at our house.

Your boys are so cute!

I love your new header. It’s so… harvesty, and full of the fall spirit!

Natalie September 22, 2008 at 9:19 am

Pure loveliness.

Sarah September 22, 2008 at 9:24 am

Salmonella is TOTALLY LAME!!!

jen September 22, 2008 at 9:25 am

Your boys and their chickens are so CUTE. And, those chicks are pretty good sports about all the chasing, dancing, and cuddling, I must say.
And, I speak from experience when I say that salmonella is really lame.

Teresa September 22, 2008 at 9:58 am

Those chickens look like too much fun!

Isn’t it funny the things are kids say! My four year old started saying to me “nice try Mom.” I asked her to feed her fish and she replied…”nice try mom, I’m eating breakfast first!” Ahem….where did that come from?

Danielle September 22, 2008 at 10:13 am

The chickens look pretty happy, all things considered! I bet they enjoyed the picnic with their sweethearts. I wish mine could still free-range. I miss their company on the front porch.

Caroline September 22, 2008 at 10:23 am

Oh cool! I look forward to your recipes and projects!

Ginger September 22, 2008 at 12:04 pm

Very funny post – and thanks for the recipe’s link! That bread looks perfect for a picnic. I wish my oven weren’t broken, fall is the best time to bake!

amylouwho September 22, 2008 at 12:05 pm

Yes, but will they help the little red hen make some bread?


elissa Finger September 22, 2008 at 12:22 pm

melissa s. September 22, 2008 at 2:32 pm

“salmonella is lame too” – that’s a classic! looking forward to checking out your recipes!

Nina September 22, 2008 at 3:03 pm

The first photo of the boys is wonderful. It’s amazing that you were able to capture it.

Gonzomama September 22, 2008 at 3:32 pm

boys snuggling their chickens! i love it – and your new header too!

Cassandra September 22, 2008 at 3:58 pm

What lovely ladies! And such handsome men to court them! Beautiful photos as always.

Hannah September 22, 2008 at 4:16 pm

Those pictures sure remind me of the way my girls like to cuddle our longsuffering hens.

kristin September 22, 2008 at 7:17 pm

oh my gosh i love your new autumn header!!! love.

jenny September 22, 2008 at 8:24 pm

WHAT is that lovely brown stuff in the jar?? Looks too thick to be apple butter.. can’t be brown sugar.. no way that’s peanut butter… Please share and tell me what that is? Just LOOKING at it makes me want to stick my finger in there and try some! erm.. make that a washed finger, cuz, yeah, salmonella is lame!

Lynn September 23, 2008 at 5:48 am

Chickens provide the best entertainment! AND they provide eggs.

Our Green Nest September 23, 2008 at 8:51 am

Looks like a yummy lunch with their girls!

Anonymous September 24, 2008 at 2:35 am

they are some healthy lookin’ chickens!! and boys, too!

Em September 24, 2008 at 9:48 am

I love these photos! Great job on the pants too – I have a pair of fleece pants that I didn’t hem on the bottoms either – just didn’t get around to it, and they’re still great for my boy! (they were a little long since I had planned on hemming them)

Liz September 24, 2008 at 12:53 pm

Haha that is great. I remember growing up with chickens and trying to leash them and get them to race a course. I wonder what chickens would say about such things if they could talk.

Grace September 24, 2008 at 4:32 pm

this is fantastic. 😀

City Farm Girl (jenn) September 29, 2008 at 11:13 am

The chicken photos really capture the action and delight of your boys. A picnic with them? Yes, of course!

AMBER October 2, 2008 at 5:59 pm

Oh my gosh, Stefani, I am so glad my kids aren’t the only ones who LOOOOVE their chickens so much. This post and its photos are just precious…
