Our New Baby Chicks Arrive!

Ok Ok so this may sound a little silly and well, impossible, to you but YES we do have a couple new baby chick arrivals to celebrate. Since the shortest member of my family will not be meeting them until Sunday I thought I'd share them here.

I know this is officially publicizing my dorkiness but I really couldn't help it.

I am now [very late] on a hunt for basket goodies that is not candy. So far we have decided some sticks [because my girl loves her some stickers] a shovel and some seeds that will most likely be grass seeds because they grow the fastest. Any other suggestions on not too sweet goodies?

I thought long and hard about making a tutorial for this project and posting it. I don't think i'm ready for this being that kind of blog. BUT if you really want to know how to make them I would love to do it in person. Adorable baby chicks are not just for spring time.

Cute! have you seen this of Crafty Crow?http://belladia.typepad.com/crafty_crow/2009/04/make-a-cottage-for-a-peg-doll.html
How about egg noise makers? Confetti eggs? I have some extra twig pencils if she liked them? ooo how about this? http://angrychicken.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c578853ef01156faa5aca970b-pi or a fairy-bell braclet?

Ooo yes I did see that ribbon loop on angry chicken a couple days ago but I didn't know where to find a wooden circle like that. Maybe lowes? or Hobby Lobby? That is a good idea! Thanks! If you have extra stick pencils we would love them.

Hey do you have any ideas for some not overly sweetened with high fructose corn syrup candies? maybe jelly beans? [ok i know thats pushing it]

From what I saw the jelly beans at wf were good and I'd say a little bit of chocolate if you want more natural. They also have a version of M&Ms at wf.

I just have to say that Kobey is madly in love with the chick you put in his basket. He sits and just pets it over and over. Such a cute idea-thanks again!
