Jan. 2nd

According to the Mayan calendar, Nostradamus, and a few other modern-day whack-jobs, the world will end in December of this year.  According to Violet, Daisy & Rosie, 2012 will instead be the YEAR OF THE CHICKEN.  We were fortunate to host some of Jim’s family over the new year, and the experience of hanging out with kin brings home the importance of making and maintaining some worthwhile traditions.  You met Uncle Dave, Jim’s older brother before,  (Hot Guys with Chicks, July 10th) and this time he brought his son, along for a visit.  The Burlingame family humans and animals came up with a pretty good list of resolutions to begin this shiny New Year…

# 1  Make new friends.

The girls enjoy a treat from a young chicken fan.

Buster meets Miss Jordan, a neighbor's cousin.

Joel gets acquainted with his feathered cousin.

# 2 Make an effort to visit with family more

It's been eight years since these two have seen each other.

# 3 Try to be an example to others

Follow me girls, I won't steer you wrong!

# 4 If you’re going to do something, do it the best you can.

If you're gonna be a chicken, be the best chicken in all of chickendom!

Hope this year is a great one!  Happy 2012 from the CHICKENDIARY!
