Good News!!!!!!!!!

Hello sweet ladies,

Good news. The doctor took off the breathing machine off of Ellianna and she is breathing on her own. We are rejoicing on what the Lord has done for this precious family. Don't quit praying please and thank you for your prayers. You truly are such sweeties. Sure was a scary time for all. Baby Ellianna is not out of the woods yet, so please keep praying. I will keep you posted when I hear something. 

Heavenly Father, We give you heard our cry and you answered..........we thank you..........In Jesus Name, Amen

Now on a lighter note. Miss Echo our horse that is pregnant is showing some really definite signs of delivering in the next week. Her udder is getting very full. We have never had a pregnant horse here on our farm before so this is all new to us. If any of you have had a pregnant horse.........please give us some pointers. It is so exciting. I will try to get pic's tomorrow of Echo. She is so round and dropping. WE CAN'T WAIT. Baby duck, baby chickens, baby kittens (I will get pic's of them also) and now a baby foal. Spring is truly in the air here at Prairie Flower Farm.

Tonight I got home and cleaned out the baby chick cage and the duck cage. They are on the side porch with lights still on them because it is still cold here in Kansas.  I had read a blog about taking a water jug and making a drinking container for your baby I cut about a 2 1/2" circle, you will see why I had to recut a 2" circle instead. I think this will make you smile!!!!!!!!!!!

Little duck decides that it is going to jump inside the hole. I thought I had it small enough.........wrong.

Little duck loved this new idea. The problem was I going to get it out?

Right then Forrest decides to jump in. I grabbed him  before he could. 

Little duck just loved his new swimming pool and Forrest was content to stay out once I caught him.

Sweet ducks. 

It is so fun to watch them clean their little feathers. They really entertain us as you can see.

Today is my 2nd year anniversary of having Prairie Flower Farm and our store.............can't believe it. You all have made it so special and I thank you so much. 

I will do something  fun to celebrate soon.............I received the new Gooseberry Cookbook in the mail yesterday to review and give one away. With Ellianna and all I just wasn't in the mood to do anything. I will real soon though. I know you are going to like!!!!! I will keep the cookbook a surprise..........can't wait to show you!

Hugs from my very very productive your HOME,


P.S. Welcome new have been me.


  1. I have known your blog from my friend, Anne. Those ducks are so cute! My mother-in-law from Kansas (now in Colorado) has her own little farm and just had 21 chickens hatched in past few days. Similar view, eh?
    I am glad to hear that baby Ellianna is doing so well. I pray and believe that she is strong and she will survive. With special love to Ellianna

  2. It is so much fun to see the little ducks doing so well. I will continue to pray for Elliana and I'm very thankful to our Lord that he watched over that precious baby. Our Lord is Great and in all things we should be thankful because he knows what is best for us. Looking forward to your next party Linda! If you'll come on over to my blog you can leave a comment and be entered into my giveaway!

    Hugs XX

  8. I am so happy to hear that baby Ellianna is doing better. I woke up this morning, thinking about her and said another prayer for her complete recovery.

  9. Praise God!!!We will continue to pray for her....I know they have a long road in front of them.
    The Ducks are the jug-pool.I think ducks have more personality then chicks....but I adore both of them!!

  14. Praise God! Thank you for letting us know about the baby. Love all the darling pictures today. Still praying! Love, Mary

  15. Linda,

    I am so thrilled to hear some positive news about Ellianna and wanted to let you know, I am praying and will continue to do so. Life has just been too busy to blog much, but never too busy to pray!

    Love your little duckies! I love spring on the farm. There isn't a better time.

    About Echo, you will love having a baby horse, as they are so much fun! When Faith (mama horse) had Rodeo, 2 years ago, was the first time for us to have a "horse baby" on the place. We put up a round pen close to the house to keep an eye on the baby....soon the baby was crawling under the round pen to play with the boys and the dogs! He loved playing "tag" and when he was little it was so cute....once he got up around 5 or 600 lbs, it was still cute...but a little dangerous. He has settled down now, but still very spoiled!!! (dh says we spoil all our babies).

    Love you and continuing to send prayers on Ellianna's behalf.


  16. Paise God from whom ALL blessings flow! So happy for Elliana and her family!

    Congratulations on your 2 yr. farm anniversary! I am so envious, but happy for you :^)

    Your duck pics put a smile on my face! Thanks for sharing them with us :)
