So this morning was for the birds, literally. February is feed the birds month so we celebrated by having some friends over and making some bird feeders. I collected some pine cones from the woods nearby my house. As a child I remember doing this with peanut butter but with all the allergies we decided to use Crisco instead. They stuck on Frosted Flakes, Cheerios, bird seed, raisin and etc. What a mess but the kids had a blast. Gillian was especially proud of her creation and wanted to hang on the tree outside as soon as everyone left. This is the beginning of my February vacation too so I am excited for that as well. I can't wait to see what other fun things I will be doing with my girls.
