Helping our feathered friends ...

Yesterday Emma Jayne and I decided to "Feed the Birds" by making pine cone feeders. Emma LOVES to collect pine cones, so we were set there, but I was worried about her peanut allergy. 

FEAR NOT little birdies!

 A quick google search informed us that Crisco was a fine substitute, so we grabbed our seeds, a big bowl and some ribbon then set to work. After we had a cookie sheet full, we headed out to the tree in our front yard to hang our feeders (Well, I hung them, she hunted for rocks!). As we were admiring our decorated tree, we decided that our favorite one actually looked like a bird! Can you spot it in the picture? Oh, and notice the big rock Emma found? She brought it inside and covered it with seeds as well. I'm not sure how I feel about that. After all, Midnight is a pretty big cat, and putting a rock covered with birdseed on the ground is just an accident waiting to happen ...

Maybe I can find a safe spot out of his reach ... :)

~Have a great day~
