Nature

These are our two newest babies! The last two years we have had a mommy build a nest in our back yard. The babies were just born two days ago and are so cute! Since we started putting out bird feeders we have so many birds in our back yard and LOVE it. Also we just picked up eight new baby chickens. Our other chickens have been such great pets so Kirk thought we should get some more. If you know Kirk you know that is a miracle!
We also have a raccoon that lives in the neighborhood. He is not very nice and very dangerous but so cute. As an example he went to my neighbors yard a few nights ago reached in her chicken cage and took one of her chickens out piece by piece. The crazy thing is she was standing there yelling and it did not bother him at all. I love nature and LOVE animals but raccoons have made it on my list of something I like to look at but not have in my backyard.

We had some racoons up in WA that would come over and eat our neighbor's cat food. They are cute, but SO vicious. We used to hear them fighting in the wetlands behind our apartment, and it was the most terrible sound!

My parent's get raccoons that actually go into their house through the doggie door to eat the dog food! They aren't scared of my dad when he yells at them to get out of the house. Just tell Kirk to take advantage of his stockpile of firearms...that'll do the trick.

Racoons are mean. That's all I have to say about that.
