Snowman Winter Gift Bag Tutorial.......easy!

Hello Sweet ladies.............

I have to tell you 81 ladies have signed up for the Tea Party Across the MILES!!!! Eeecccckkkk! My heart is so happy and for those of you who have sent me tea and a card.......thank you. Soooo sweet and I am putting all the teas in a special jar to drink with my girls. You are all so precious to me!

Peeping non stop is the game around this farm house. You wouldn't believe that 5 little chicks could make so much noise...........they can..........a lot! I will keep you posted on what is happenin'! 

We only have 5 babies still.........they are so sweet and I will be taking them out of the incubator later today and putting them in their Bird Cage! Hope we have some other eggs hatch today and tomorrow. I did put some eggs in on other days when I started so we will have some more.......hoping!!!!

On facebook I asked ladies to tell a name they would like! Loved it that you had some of you children join in!!!!!  I put all the ladies names in a bowl and Taylor drew !!!!!!!! Now Heather got a little name happy. I am not sure what name she wanted.......heehee, she said "What about Fluff and Puff.....if there are to that look alike? Someone mentioned Fluff earlier. I still want a Jasper or Petunia :)". Soooooo the ladies name I drew was Heather Hansen. All the names were so cute and I thought they were all very creative!!!!!!!! Plan on using the other names.........if I have anymore babies! Thanks for joining in the fun!

Okay this is what will come to you Heather wrapped in this little sack, but won't tell what is on the inside not right yet!!!!!!!!!!
