We have been invaded around here! Our backyard is always full of little birds fighting over the bird feeder and squirrels rooting around in the grass. I have such a great time watching those little birdies flit around and run here and there! They're so active & inquisitive! Just look how cute they are! And be sure to click on the pics to get a better look!They spend a lot of time fighting for space on the suet feeder! A fresh suet cake draws a big crowd!See? So inquisitive!Look! A pretty little dove coming to check out the little hidden water bowl I set out for the critters.And I think my favorites are the cute little squirrels with their fat white bellies!Just at look at that little face!

I'm almost positive that every local pregnant woman has delivered in the last week...at my hospital! Our Christmas was wonderful, the only thing that would have made it better is if my little sis & her husband had been with us. Don't worry though, she sent us a couple pictures that made it feel like she was there. Ok, so it didn't feel like she was there at all, the pictures just made us cry! Thanks a lot, Laura!We had Christmas with Mama & Daddy on Christmas Eve and ate way too much. Here's a few pics of us opening gifts.Silly Daddy!Sweet smile, Mama!Uh-oh! He's hooked!
