Discovery of the Cardinal Nest

So this afternoon, Mom and I were checking our garden to see if anything was ripe yet. As we were walking to our garden, I noticed a male cardinal chriping at us. I'm pretty sure he was telling us to get out of his space. lol. So after we checked the garden, I saw the cardinal hopping around the birdfeeder, so I waited so he could get some food. Then we noticed that he was going in the lilac bush right next to the feeder! So we went inside, and he started to colloct food and take it to the bush. He had a funny little system goin' on too. It went:

Go to the bird feeder...

then he'd jump onto the feeder pole...

then he'd grab a seed and hop back to the bush all sneaky like and feed his babies.

A little later I saw the mother. She's pretty too. Apparently Mom saw the female earlier today, and the sun hit her feathers just right that it made her look almost orange. :)

I'm excited to have more cardinals flying around my house. :)

Gingerbread House!!!

So today I sarted making the gingerbread house that had been laying around the house since before people came up for the holidays. ☻ I didn't get any pictures of while I was decorating it, but we did get some after pictures. Mom even came and helped after a little bit! Yay! :)

I was feeling crazy - of course - and so I made the two sides of the roof pretty close to exact opposites. ^_^ It was fun, but I almost ran out of candy to make it!

I also had fun with the door. I got tired of the candy that the package provided because it was all pretty close to the same, so I went and grabbed some candy canes. And then I made a heart shaped door. :)

My gingerbread boy (back) and the gingerbread snowman (front) look kinda evil...

My gumball is going to fall off!!!!!! What ever shall I do?!??!? ☻

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! It fell off........what should I do???

There, I fixed it. I glued it back onto the gingerbread house with frosting. :)
So that's what happened with my gingerbread house. It took a while to actually make it and put it together, but it was totally worth it. It was so much fun. ^_^

Strawberry Picking = Amazing Jam and Sweaty Fun

Yesterday, Blaubeere, Monkey, and I went strawberry picking! It was way fun, and I was really glad we went, even if I did get all sweaty. :)

There are more strawberry picking pictures are on
Blaubeere's blog.

Today though, we spent a while making some delicious strawberry jam! Yum! There are actually quite a few steps to making strawberry jam. More than I thought there were. As far as I knew, you just went and got some strawberries, mushed them up, and put them in a jar to eat. But apparently, I was far from right. :)
First, we went and picked the strawberries. Then we had to take the tops off.

After we cut the tops off, we put them into
Blaubeere's pot, and mushed them. Then we poured them into little half pint jars that we warmed up.

After the jam was put into the jars, we put them back into the canning pot to kill the germs and to vacuum seal the jars. Then we set them on the table to cool. It was loads and loads of fun!! I really enjoyed myself, and it tastes absolutely delicious!

Bag For Dad

I have been telling my Dad for quite some time now that I would make him a bunch of bags for his tie-downs that we use for vacations. They usually get thrown in the back of our car to sit there until we need them again. So in that time, which is about a year or possibly two, they get tangled up quite nicely. I got the idea to make some bags about two years ago when we found a bag, similar to the ones in the picture, on the side of the road. Dad said that it would be nice to have some bags like this for each individual tie-down so they don't get tangled up. So, after two and a half years, I have finally gotten the very first bag done, and now I know how to make more, so I can finish my way too old project. :) Yes!
