bird feeders and santa

Daniel helped the girls hang the bird feeders we made this afternoon. He initiated this whole craft idea where we rolled pinecones in peanut butter and bird seed. He loves to watch for birds out our back window and the girls have picked up a love of it too. We hung these feeders right outside their windows hoping they would be able to see some from their bed during the day.



Later on in the evening we were all on our bed talking about santa. Daniel had gone into a big explanation about santa's bad list. They didn't know much about it. He asked the girls a few questions about what they thought santa knew and how he knew it. Ellen told us that santa doesn't see he just knows. Right after daniel finished his last words Arianna leaned down and kissed his face a few times. We couldn't stop ourselves from laughing. After Ellen stopped hysterically laughing with us she asked us what was so funny! :)

Nice pix! The bird feeder made me think of the little bird houses/feeders (?) the girls got in Charlotte. Did they ever paint them? I imagine the birds would much prefer peanut butter! Keep up the good blogging!

Hey, Jen. It's Matt in Indy (Jen's husband). Love your blog. I hope you don't mind me using it to communicate with Daniel, but I don't know how else to reach him. I caught this story the other day and thought of him: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/22/science/23tastecnd.html?emc=eta1. One of the most commonly-reported (to the extent any can be considered common) types of synaesthesia involves "seeing" sounds, which I thought Daniel might find interesting. Hope you guys are well.
