For some reason, birds seem to want to come into our house! I don't know if it's because we have so many windows or what, but it's kind of crazy. We constantly have birds flying into our back windows. Some make it to fly away...some don't. I don't know if you remember, but I posted about a cardinal who would beat on my kitchen window way too early. We took care of him (no, I will not tell you how!!). We now have a little finch who loves to tap on my window. He's so sweet and just gives me little "love taps". I am actually enjoying him being around :-) The other morning, he was visiting us and Wesleigh was able to see him. She was so cute and the little bird kept coming up to her. You can see the lion's mane in these pictures!
The boys went back to school today. I can honestly say, I was very sad to see them go. Not so much because they would be gone during the day, but because I know it means hours of homework (and getting up way too early). I've been telling them and myself that it's just 3 weeks! We can give it our all for three weeks and then have a well-deserved break. I'll let you know how that plan works!
I'm also trying to get the house decorated for Christmas. It's not going so well ;) I am having a hard time getting motivated for some reason. I don't have our big Santa party planned this year, so there's not a big event that is spurring me on. I think we're going to do things simple this year. Of course, simple still includes a 12 ft. tree, so "simple" is a relative term! We'll see how it turns out. Wesleigh has attached herself to a paper mache Santa that I have. I even found Santa in her bed today for a nap. I'll post a picture of Wesleigh and Santa soon.
It's supposed to cool off tomorrow, so maybe that will help us get into the Christmas spirit!!
