Bird Feeders and updates

Today for our craft we made pine cone bird feeders! I don't know if Keslie really gets these crafts - she's just along for the ride! At first she just ate the peanut butter. She did help me a little bit - especially with the bird seed part. Anika did hers almost all by herself. Afterwards, we watched some hummingbird videos on youtube and then had a picnic on the porch so that we could see if we had any takers. So far I don't think we've had a nibble but I'm sure the birds will find them!










We had a really busy, fun weekend! We spent the day in Boston on Friday and then that evening we watched GHOST RIDER. It was alright. Nicholas Cage just really lacks in the talent department sometimes. He redeemed himself the next night though (I'll get there!). The next morning was a Saturday morning so OBVIOUSLY we went tag selling. We found a little bike and a kids grocery cart and some books. Anika tripped and skinned her knee really bad. She's still talking about it! After we finished up with tag sales we headed to the park for a picnic with our friends! It was so fun visiting with everyone. That evening we went over to Richard and Sumer's house for ice-cream, games and a movie. We watching NATIONAL TREASURE - and Nicholas Cage actually does a good job! We love that movie! Sumer made HOMEMADE tortilla chips and salsa and it was DIVINE!! Oh my gosh - I don't know if I can ever go back to plain old out of the bag chips! It was so fun! On Sunday evening the young men's presidency and their families had a BBQ at the YM's president's house. The food was delicious and it was really fun to get to know these people better. We knew it was time to go when Keslie came up to us and was snuggling with somebody's PJ pants. She was SOOO tired! She slept in until 8:30 today! Anyway - that was our weekend! We are going on a fun little outing tomorrow so I'm sure I'll be posting some pictures! See ya!

okay... so, tell me... are you doing a craft everyday? If so, I'm impressed... Emma would love to do more crafts. Although, we have been enjoying the Martha Stewart crafts at Michaels as of late. We've put together a few animal puppets. She sells some cute kids craft kits!
