25 Things to Do: #16 and #25

Hooray! 2 things scratched off my list. Well... actually, technically only one (but I don't listen to technicalities).
#16- Hike to the top of a mountain.
I actually did this like 3 years ago, and I just remembered about it! It was GORGEOUS up there- but since it was so long ago, we don't have any pictures on the computer. :) But believe me, it was VERY pretty!!!!

#25- Get Chickens
Technicality Number Two: So technically it's "get chicken" because I am getting 1.
BUT let me explain before you think "She's getting 1 chicken?"

Yes, I am getting one chicken- but it will be at a friend's house (they have lots of other chickens) since where I live we can't keep them.
Our friends are ordering 24 chickens from a hatchery, but they only want to keep I think 8-10. They'll sell the other ones. But since there will be extras, they offered to let me choose one from the extras and keep it there- and of course, I accepted.

So, I am ecstatic!
Her name (which will remain a secret {not even my family knows} until I get her) has something to do with answered prayer, because that's what she is!

Thanks for listening to all of this rambling! :)
You are probably like... "How can someone make a whole post about a chicken?"
:) Lol. That's actually pretty funny..


P.S. Under some of the photos it says archive photo- that justs means I saved it to my computer a billion years ago and I don't know where it's from- I didn't take the pictures, but I don't have any link. Sorry about that, but I just wanted to let you know that that's where they came from!

That is SOOO cool that you're getting a chicken! In second grade, my class did a project where we incubated eggs {in an incubator} at school and watch them hatch :) We then got to hold them :)
But then my teacher gave the chickens to my best friend because she was the only one in class who lived on a farm...
So, yeah.

I'm so glad God answered this prayer for you! And I can't wait to find out the name of your chicken! Love you! Mom

Wow Katie! I'm excited about your chicken and will anxiously await the revelation of her name! What a neat answer to prayer! I love you!
