Sunday Nights at my House #3

This Sunday night, my whole family was sitting down, eating dinner. We having conversations about all sorts of stuff. We continuously heard long, howling, whiny meows, coming from upstairs. We knew it was Billie and our discussion turned to the mornings when Yolanda comes down stairs, holding up to five pairs of socks that Dixie has brought into her room over the night. Just this morning, she came down with one pair of socks and my littlest sister's stuffed turtle, Shelly. Then Billie runs down the stairs, holding the turtle and looking at us slyly. Kid started screaming, "Shelly! Shelly! Omigosh, Shelly!" Oh. My. Goat. It was too funny.

What happened on your Sunday Night?

Also, tomorrow will be the next Theme of the Week. Make sure you join!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups all purpose or whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)
1 12 ounce package of semisweet chocolate chips  
Can you tell one is a farm egg and one is store bought?

 Mix sugars, butter and eggs in a bowl. Mix until fluffy.

 In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt
 Add dry ingredients to wet and stir it up (dough will be stiff).

 Add chocolate chips, and nuts if you're using them.

 Roll into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

Bake, eat, enjoy (and make your brother do the dishes)!

Fears for lives of stolen baby goats (From York Press)

Fears for lives of stolen baby goats (From York Press):

'via Blog this'

Please post this on your blog whether you have goats or not, these babies need to be returned, and we can ask the people who stole them, to give them back!

Silver, Ducks Enjoying a Cucumber, a Pretty Sunset and News

Hmm, the news is kinda bad and kinda good. Plus a really cool thing.

The kinda bad, kinda good, is that I have made the decision to sell Tinky, Silver and Zoe. I have already been contacted about Tinky and might be selling him soon.

The cool news, is that my Grandma is giving me her camera! It's 12.1 megapixels! The camera I use right now is 5.0! That is such a vast improvement. I will be taking so many cool pictures!

The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

Debbie at Swamp Billie Ranch has awarded me with the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award! Thanks Debbie!

The rules say that I have to tell you seven things about myself! Hmm, this seems a little familiar... Anyways, here goes.

1) My nickname is Gigi. It's because I giggle so much! My dad came up with it.
2) I'm getting my hair cut soon! Oh, I wish the day would hurry up and come!
3) I hate folding laundry. I would do the dishes over laundry any day, but right now I can't because my wrist is hurt.
4) My sister is watching a Nature program about humming birds right now and apparently they can fly backwards. 
5) I love climbing trees. I fell 25 feet out of a tree when I was 6 or 7 and my dad was under me. Yeah, you can guess how that ended (nobody was killed and no bones were broken if you can believe it). 
6) I'm making a calender for my soccer team this year. I'm already taking millions of pictures and now I have this added into the mix? Wow, that's a lot of pictures.
7) I love the song 7 by Prince. I'm listening to it right now!
