Q&A: Decorating the Hen House

Ms. Lizzy gives the final "Okay"


Ms. LiZzY - 
You are so incredibly smart! I really look forward to your column and wish that you would write more often. Tell me, do you have the hen house decorated for the holidays??

Dear Ms. Kringle-
oooooOOOOOOOOoooooooo!  Ms. Lizzy thanks you for your compliments!  How SWEET!   Right now it is all one can do to manage the Girls excitement over this Christmas season.  They've been gearing up since Thanksgiving (after EGG-spressing relief that they weren't 'the guest of HONOR' on the table), and were ready to kick it in high gear.  Ms. Lizzy exorcises RESTRAINT - as I'm sure you can imagine her horror at seeing the over-kill with light displays on the human's abodes!  Blinking Santas, Chaser Lights, Flamingos pulling sleighs - The Girls were ALL for these types of displays, but Ms. Lizzy demanded a toned-down version (utility rates are jacked up this time of year, you know), and so she had to avoid the disdainful glances of the flock as they dutifully hung up their stockings last week in lieu of Chaser Lights.  Here are photos.

Wishing a Great Weekend to All!
Signed, Ms. Lizzy

Ms. Lizzy - Am so glad that you have your stockings hung with care. What will Santa put in your stocking?? Dye for Easter eggs? Last year, at Easter, I was highly creative - I dyed mine white. Here's hoping that your holiday is Egg-straspecial, ha ha!

Oh Sweetie...
How beautiful the chicken coup looks. I love all the little stockings in a row. Ms Lizzy must be so over the top thrilled.

I love seeing the girls running about, looks like they are all there shopping for surprises for each other. If not they are searching for tracks of Santa. They are so excited.

So many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Oh Miss Lizzy, you are such a great gal. Your decorations are just lovely and so tasteful. I agree-chaser lights on your hen houses would just be so “look at me” and that is not your style. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and all the girls too!!
