What do pinecones and dog bones have in common? Nothing really, except the fact that Sadie nibbled on both on Saturday.
Sader Tot is obsessed with anything that belongs to Niva including her water dish, food, and bones. It’s a good thing Niva is great at sharing.
As for the pinecones, we did some crafting! Jimmy went to a leaf raking service project at our church and brought home some pinecones thinking I would want to craft with them. He knows me well 🙂
We tied twine around the pinecones, covered them with peanut butter, and rolled them in bird seed. It was definitely messy–I’m pretty sure I’ll be cleaning a mixture of bird seed and peanut butter off of every kitchen surface for a few weeks–but a ton of fun!
We plan on hanging them soon and I’m super excited to see what Sadie thinks when she sees a bird eating from her little homemade bird feeder. It worked out well, too, because she’s learning about birds and fall this week in school!
Other fun over the weekend included a trip to Starbucks with my girls. Mama got a (much needed) coffee, Sadie got a chocolate milk, and Niva got a fun car ride. It was a win for all of us.
Okay, I’m going to sign off now. I have no brain power left. We’re still going through the whole sleep/nap strike thing over here and my eyes are already heavy at 5:35 pm.
