Bath Time!

Well, seeing as Fred and Matilda have a showing on Saturday, it was necessary to give them baths :)

On another note, Moriah is obssesed with chickens... Maybe even more so than I am... Watch Out.... She is constantly saying.... "Chick Chick, Ouside, Ouside. PLEAASEEE????" How can you say no to that????
