Well, this will be a photo full post. Lots of updates. First off, it has snowed again. A quote from the kids this morning. "Hooray!! Hooray!! Hooray!!" This is one of the huge trees in our backyard that inspired us to buy the house. I loooove this tree!
Second in line is the new bird feeder. This is the fifth and, I've promised my husband, final bird feeder attempt. The lady at the store swears this will be the ticket to beautiful birds. We shall see. I hung it right outside the sliding door from the playroom. You can see our cream colored rain gutter to the right of it. This is where the squirrels typically do their trapeze act to cling to whatever I may hang there. However, I (sneaky dog that I am) have decided to grease the rain gutter! I am very hopeful...very hopeful that we won't have a repeat of this. . .
I only hope that the children won't be frightened by the sight of the things hurling themselves at the sliding glass door when they fling off the greased gutter. I'll let you know what happens.
And finally, here's a photo of the little house corner the girls organized. They spend hours in this corner pretending and dreaming and rearranging.
I love the little puppet theater/window/counter/ticket booth. It's definitely a multipurpose installment in their little play scape.
