A Valentines Baby

We came home today to a sweet little Valentines surprise.  A sweet little boy!  Now if the six of us could only settle on a name!  Momma and baby are both doing well.  Like I said in my last post, spring is on its way!
My house could not be more giddy, baby chicks, and calf within the last twenty-four hours!
Hope you all enjoyed your day as much as we did!

Getting a little jump on spring

We have a habit of getting a little excited for baby chicks every spring.  So last night when we went to the feed store, and their baby chicks were in, my husband and I looked at each other, and we knew we were coming home with some!
Ten babies later, and four excited kids, and here we are!  Spring is right around the corner!

Painting and Distressing Cabinets

My Pantry is in need of a lot of help!  When we bought our house, the only thing in there was three flimsy wire shelves.  These shelves do the trick, except they bend when I place a bag of flour on them!  

So finally, after almost two years of patience, I get to start the project!  My sister-in-law tells me I am so patient!  I just like to do it once, the way I want it, so it will be done!  Therefore, I have to wait till we can afford it!

So today, I will show you step one, painting and distressing the cabinets.  We started with basic unfinished oak.  My husband tells me I am crazy, but I like the look of old farmhouse kitchens.  So here I am in an almost new house, making things look old.  
Oh well, so it goes!
I started by painting them white.  I used paint that had primer in it, but if you don't have this kind, you'll have to put primer  on the bare wood first.

The following recipe fills a 9X13 baking dish.

2 Tbl. chopped parsley                   3 Tbl. flour
1 large can crushed tomatoes             2 cups milk
1 can tomato paste                       1 cup parmesan cheese
2 bay leaves                             2 egg yolks
1 1/4 tsp. salt                          8 oz. lasagna noodles
