a family, some chickens, a cat, and some other things that grow

My littlest guy has been on a fuse bead kick for a few weeks now, ever since we made plant row markers for the vegetable garden. Usually when my children figure out that some sort of fun activity has a purpose, they no longer want to do it, but not this time. "N" has made a fairy for the chickens, using a pattern that came with some of our fuse beads. I hung the Red Faced Chicken Fairy on a pole in the chicken yard. And I thought that pole had no purpose. It was just waiting for the day when the Red Faced Chicken Fairy would arrive.
This chicken was not impressed at the turn of events. When asked her opinion, she said, "Er...shut the door, would ya?" (That chicken is named Teriyaki. Such a cruel name. No wonder she's so paranoid all the time.)
Here you can see the pole formerly known as Useless now holding the tiny Red Faced Chicken Fairy to overlook our Empire of Dirt. No wonder I get the Nine Inch Nails song in my head whenever I visit the chickens. It all makes sense now. (And if you haven't heard Empire of Dirt covered by Johnny Cash, check it out.)
Boo can't figure out why the chickens would need a Red Faced Chicken Fairy. Hmmmm....
