The Traveling Chicken and her two friends arrived here in Altadena, California on December 8th, 2012. She and her flock flew in from Texas after spending a fun time with Darla having tea and getting her beautiful portrait painted.

I was so busy getting ready for Christmas and having out of town guests staying with us that I wasn't able to paint Miss T. Chicken's portrait until after the Holidays.
T.C. was thrilled to spend Christmas with us! It was the first one that she could remember. She happily chose a spot on our Christmas tree amongst all the ornaments right next to one of our big red hearts. She loved how bright and shiny it was and spent hours gazing at it. (probably admiring her own reflection)! Miss T. Chicken celebrated the Holidays and was in her element with being an ornament herself!

After Christmas she watched her first Rose Parade on television and loved seeing all the floats, bands and horses on New Year's Day.
Now she is packing and getting ready for her next adventure flying to Elle's home in Colorado.
It was so much fun having Miss T. Chicken here for the Holidays and painting her portrait! For more information about the Traveling Chicken Blog, click here.
