New Birdhouse

When we moved into this house August 2009 Stephen got me this beautiful ceramic bird feeder as a housewarming gift. Well last week it was super windy, the bird feeder fell and broke. :( So this weekend while we were at Home Depot picking up some touch up paint for the exterior of our home, we picked out a new bird feeder with the kids. This time a wooden one.
 We decided to let the kids paint it to match our home. They had fun working on this project and did a great job!
 We're also giving our patio a makeover. We got a new Sonoma Market Umbrella & Stand from Kohl's. They were having an awesome sale, I also had a 20% off coupon and got $20 in Kohl's cash back. You can see the umbrella in the background of this pic. I will share more pics of the makeover in a post later this week.
 I think this was James' first big painting project - he did great!
 And here it is after they were done! You can see it matches the color on our home in the pillar behind.

What the swimsuits? It was snowing here a few days ago... I think I say that every year haha.

The bird feeder looks lovely what a great project for both of them to do together!
