International Respect for Chickens Day 2018

It's May the 4th.  Besides being Star Wars Day, it is International Respect for Chickens Day.

Once again we made a video of ZZ and Lucky celebrating a holiday.

A story about this video:
ZZ has experience with chickens.  Lucky does not.  He was a little intimidated at first but warmed up a bit as he helped take care of these chickens.  The kids were very careful while petting the chicken that was out.  They fed the chickens.  They collected eggs and put fluff (pine shavings) in the nesting box.
When we get eggs from these chickens, Jeremy and I are the ones who wash the eggs off before using them.  Lucky is not.  He was not used to the stuff that comes with the eggs when the hens lay them.  It scared him.  It's not like the eggs that come from the store.

ZZ and Lucky will be making more videos together so check back on my YouTube channel as well as here at my blog to see how a couple of 4-year olds...

The KAT's Meow

Lucky: You're going to babysit me?
Mom: I don't babysit you. 
Lucky: Why don't you babysit me?
Mom: I'm your mom.  I nurture you.
Lucky: You murder me?
Mom (laughing): I don't murder you.  I nurture you.

More Balloons

More balloons at the Tulip Festival.  Jeremy had a request to recreate his windmill with the Dutch boy and girl kissing that he did back in 2014.
It turned out great again.  I helped twist the boy and girl and Lucky and I helped deliver them today.  Jeremy had already built the windmill at the visitor's center yesterday.
Lucky just loves helping out with the balloons.  It's so fun to have him want to help.

We've Been Busy

What's that?  I haven't blogged in a while?  We've been busy.
Remember when Jeremy made "Starry Night" for the Orem Library the Summer of 2014?  This is the scaled down version but it still took a lot of work.
Balloon art for the kids' elementary school art show.  Isn't it great?

Catch of the Day

Jeremy:  I guess Nichole decided to make herself a peanut butter sandwich.

Garlic Heron

April 19 was Garlic Day.  My parents gave us garlic from their garden and we used some in spaghetti sauce.  Then of course I forgot to take a picture.  Oh, well.

We do have pictures of the new balloon sculpture at Ashton Gardens for the Tulip Festival.  Combining our love of birds with our business, we made a great blue heron standing in water with a group of cattails (or as Jeremy likes to call them KAT-tails since I made those).

National Animal Crackers Day 2018

April 18 is National Animal Crackers Day.  ZZ and Lucky got together for animal cracker eating fun.

Here's the video for it:

A story about this video:
We asked the kids to guess what kind of animal they were eating.  They each had their own technique.  Lucky tried to guess what it was before he ate it.  ZZ decided to wait until after she ate to say what she thought it was.
About halfway through, for I don't know what reason, ZZ decided to have her back to the camera and was that way for most of the rest of the video.

Let me know why you think she turned away from the camera.

ZZ and Lucky will be making more videos together so check back on my YouTube channel as well as here at my blog to see how a couple of 4-year olds...
