Our Little Girl Is (Maybe) Growing Up

Today is Maisie's birthday. Well, actually I guess technically it was the 24th, but in my mind/heart, she was born the Sunday after it's sort of a floating holiday ;-). "Cake" for all!

"What is the hold up with my cake?!?"

Oops, false start.  We forgot something!

"Wait....what the heck is that?!?"

Everything seems pretty calm, cool and far...

Yep, that's the Maisie we all know and love ;-D.  She actually tolerated her party hat pretty well after the initial fit.

And proceeded to stuff herself with birthday cake (Cheerios :-)

"Hey, what's going on over here?"

"REG!!!  Don't give her all my cake!!!"

The candle didn't last long in the "cake", but held just fine in her, um, fluffy-ness.

And as long as Reg tossed the Cheerios behind her back...

...she was okay with sharing.  One of these two sisters is the "sheep chicken".

And even Jester and Ford got a few handfuls.

"I  need more cake in my cake box, Auntie Reg."

And then, as with all good Maisie parties, things deteriorated quickly ;-).

The rest of the flock got to share the goodies, too.  More pictures tomorrow!

Kate and I had a blast working at the dog trial!  Here are some gorgeous pictures from Friday.  I'm hoping he took some on Saturday, too, and will share them if I see them.  Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  8. A wonderful celebration. I'm glad the chickens got treats too. What does Hank think of Cheerios?

  9. ROFLMAO! Betcha Maisie said something bluer than "heck". I'm so glad she's made it to big girl hood, though (thanks, Alice). Glad too that the Adventure Chickens (especially Amelia- is that her name?) got to shad in the party (hooray for Auntie Reg!)

  10. Happy Birthday you darling little sheep!


  11. Happy Birthday Maisie! You are truly a beautiful ewe. . . . and no one can rock a purple party hat like you!

  13. Is that the Maisie sweater you are wearing?

  14. Fun 4th B-day ~ She'll always be Our little Maisie. Maisie and deteriorate in the same sentence - Always!
