During cold/winter months we like to feed the birds at our house. Normally that means seeds in the bird feeders ... but during the Christmas season we like to give our birdies a little treat.
The boys ... with some help from Uncle Alex and their big brother Zach ... strung up some popcorn, cranberries, fruit loop like cereal, and cherrio like cereal for our birds.
We started off with a needle and thread ... knotted at one end so the food doesn't fall off. : ) Then sat out the food stuffs for our chains ... boy you can tell where I shop can't you??? LoL
It seems I have to add pictures 1 at a time now ... apparently google has changed how picasa works and I can't even get to my albums yet ... great another thing to figure out cause google thinks they are so great ... blah!
Uncle Alex apparently got tired of stringing though ... he left before his chain was finished and Zach finished that one up. Then here are the boys with their finished strings of birdie food.
We took the leftovers (the ceral & popcorn that was dropped on the floor; cranberries that nobody wanted to eat after trying just 1) and dumped them about the base of the bush.
We've enjoyed watching the birds the past few days too.
Merry Christmas to you all ... and if you have time ... put a little something out for your yardland creatures too!
