For the Birds

My friend Autie and I had a "kid crafternoon" the other day. We tried (You will come to find out why this didn't work as you read on) to make bird feeders out of the kids names. 

Here we are putting the birdseed into the cookie cutters.




Max was a perfect name for these birdfeeders. B E R K L E I G H and M E R R I C K. What was I thinking?? :)



After the letters fell apart, we wrote names on their cups, and hung the crumbled letters from the cute tree outside.


Here are the twins and Max walking carefully to the cute little tree. (I usually don't dress Berkleigh in a nasty short dress. It had leggings, but she didn't want them back on so she flaunted it. :) )


Hanging our bird feeders in the tree.

Waiting for the birds and shaking the tree.

You have blossoms on your tree. I'm crying from jealousy. I like the yellow shirt, also.

I'm thinking the same thing--blossoms?! How sweet for Valentine's. And I think the bird feeders are just as cute in the cups with the posh ribbon.

I wanna know about the camera too...that last pic is the best, B. looks like she's about to topple over. :)

The camera that took the bird feeder extravaganza pictures is my friends. She has a nice one. She emailed them to me, and I enhanced them in photoshop.

The tide pool adventure was documented with my camera. It is not a nice camera. :) (But it still works, and that is why I don't have a nice one yet. I am trying to be adult about it.) I did enhance them in photoshop as well. :)

Fun idea! Gotta get into that groove with Clark. Poor kid never gets to do anything fun. I too am trying not to hate my camera. ;)
