Bird Feeders

Saturday morning I decided that I would finally make use of the 20 some odd pine cones my children picked up from my Mama's yard back earlier this month. So we set out to make pine cone bird feeders. Sounds easier than it actually was. I got all the stuff together. Peanut butter, pine cones, paper plates, spoons, and bird seed. Madison is having no problems getting her hands dirty but if you know my son he hates to be dirty. He's a bigger nice nasty than his Uncle Mike was growing up. So needless to say I did all the work for Nealon's bird feeders but don't ask him that. Well about 20 minutes or so of spreading peanut butter, tying some string to the pine cones and then rolling in bird seed. Plus a few times where I had to stop and yell at Nealon to stop eating the peanut butter that had bird seed in it. Here is our finished project. Not to bad for a spur of the moment thought at my mom's house and then a month later thought of well lets make bird feeders.

Being sick sucks! I mean really sucks and when you are the sole provider of everything kids, house, cooking, and all things related it sucks worse. Catching up after being sick might even be worse than being sick itself. So here's to all you do it all mommies. NOT stay at home mommies but do it ALL mommies.

Hope you all have a great day! As for me I'll be catching up on all my cleaning and Mama duties for the next couple days!

Lots of Love!

Dinosaurs are invading...

Well, not really but they do have an on going exhibit at the Exploreum in Mobile. It was a lot of fun. Not just the dinosaurs but all the science stuff as well. The kids all had fun finding out how healthy they are, pulling up their own body weight and then just being kids and having a good time. It was an overall good Sunday!

And the winner is...

Mackenzie and Joey went to the McGuire's St Patrick's Day run on Saturday. She came in 3rd place in her age group! She was so proud. Guess we need to see about finding her some organized track for her age.

Our home is complete again...

Nealon is back at home after 3 whole weeks. He went with my MIL after my surgery. He had a great time being spoiled some and being the "only" child for a few weeks. I honestly think he needed the getaway. Being that he has been 'replaced' as the baby in the house he had been acting out some. He has only been back a day now with just us but the difference is amazing. He got to do all kinds of fun stuff like helping Papa make the train for Rylynn's birthday, playing in Uncle Josh's tent in the dining room, fishing and then just all the joys of running and screaming without getting in trouble. Because for whatever reason grandparents seem to be able to handle all that noise far better than us parents can. Here's a picture of the boy after a day of playing and getting to be as dirty as he wants to.
