Birdhouse Making

A few months ago Owen painted his birdhouse in 4H (or Forage as he calls it). He wanted to fill it with seeds and hang it in the tree. The only problem was that a 5 foot drift of snow was around this tree until just a few weeks ago. Mia got her birdhouse in her Easter basket, and spent an afternoon painting it. Dylan, not wanting to be left out, had to have a birdhouse as well. Anyone know any tricks to getting birds to actually go in them? I'm sure curious little noses and hands investigating the houses daily doesn't help.... :)


Playing Catchup

Mia and Owen love their 2 younger brothers. {A LOT} Mia especially loves to giggle at their antics. They are always asking me to tell them about when they were Dylan's age, and what did they do that was silly. Tonight I read to them some of the things I have written down on this blog. I decided I need to get back at recording the Life of the Brandt's! Mia had plenty to laugh about today..... I was upstairs getting Luke from his bed and Dylan came up and said "mommy can you give me a spanking?" I said "whattttt? what did you do?" (my mind is racing thinking of worst case scenarios) I didn't hear any screeching...I knew Luke and Dylan were with me so I felt fairly confident no major crisis was happening but immediately went to investigate. My little 2 year old farmer in the making had unloaded the bag of pretzels into his wagon and dumped them all over the couch. ~sigh~  Dylan, you are so full of it these days! I love you my little mischievous, crazy, curious, loveable little 2 year old (almost 3 year old).
