Hot Chicks

   When you have a sis like Kate your kids get pretty lucky!  After school yesterday we trecked out to her house to visit her new little chickies. 

Annie squealed with delight.

For Bo, it was LOVE at first sight.
And Rocco...I wasn't sure how he would react.  I thought he would be scared....but as it turned out, it was the chicks who were scared...look closely:
Luckily Aunt Cake was just to the right to save the chicks.

Good job Rocco, be gentle, good boy...
NO, ROCCO NO!!!!
Man that baby is fast!

Let's leave those little guys alone now.

Oh, oh...RUN, CHICKIES, RUN!!!

Auntie Cake said...

Man! That baby IS fast!

I am happy to report that all the chicks are still doing wonderfully despite the amusement style ride that the yellow one took with Rocco! Things have to be tough to survive at my house!

I snorted. Out loud. It wasn't pretty. I think I might belong in your family.

This is such a cute post, my friend. Your children remind of mine when they were "little". My oldest is a girl (now 24 years), my middle son, Kylan (now 20 years), and last but not least is Caleb (now 15 years). Maleah is a lot like Annie (Big Sister)still. Kylan is quite like Bo . . . I called him my "wild child". And of course Caleb like Rocco . . . constantly exploring and following in the footsteps of big sister and brother.
Libby, God bless you for sharing these adorable pictures of your children. You are a terrific mom. May the Lord continue to bless you and your sweet family.
Seeking His Grace,
Bren

Adorable post. Just love the pictures. We have always taught our dogs to do shakey,shakey with a toy in their mouth. That is what I thought of when I saw Rocco grab that chick!

Janean said...

Are you a professional photographer? These pictures are BRILLIANT! Your kids are adorable...even cuter than the chicks. I LOVE the beach picture in the sidebar too. It must be a riot at your house!

Hey Libbie ~ What Adorable photos of Your Kids, and of course the Chicks.... What's With All the Chicks ~ I know Easter & Spring, but I think I saw at least 1/2 dozen bloggers with Baby Chicks, I Think I'm JEALOUS - but probably Not a Good Thing for Me to have with My Spoiled Kitty Kat ~ Elliott!

Have a Wonderful Week

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

How funny!
In that last pic, Rocco looks like Godzilla attacking the villagers!

All your kids are adorable, but I really think you need to just give me Annie. She is, after all, my namesake. :-)

Thank you so much for your comments on my last post, I really do value your feedback!

Have a wonderful week!
Anne

Ahhhh...cute little ones...both the children and the chicks. My husband and I were at our local farm store over the weekend and we saw some baby chicks...I think my husband can read my mind because before I could say anything he said..."No we are NOT taking any home!" LOL
Great pics!

Farmgirl Paints said...

Oh my goodness! Those chicks were soooo cute:) My chicks would have loved them. At first I thought it was a stuffed toy...but NO!

He & Me + 3 said...

Oh my word. I am so glad that that little chick survived. Shaken chick syndrome. LOL I kid. Those pictures are adorable.

I was like, "Aww!" then I got to the one where Rocco grabbed the chick and had to hold my breath to keep from waking the whole house laughing! Poor little chick! Lol! I am still laughing!
