Thousand Words Thursday - Vacation Time!

Well, not really...but it got your attention, didn't it? So we will be heading out sometime this morning - after the garbage guys have picked up our garbage and we bring the cans in (we don't want garbage sitting even in the cans for all the time we're gone - don't want to attract any more skunks to the area...among other critters...)

Princess Nagger was very concerned about the wild birds not having enough bird seed to munch on while we are gone, so she nagged convinced hubby to take her to the local farm store and they came home with this:
It holds quite a bit of birdseed, so I think along with the other bird feeder and the suet I just got, the birds will be fat and happy while we're gone. Like the doves:
And the myriad of other birds that hang out near our grape arbor, like these:
Princess Nagger has been beyond excited about leaving for our trip - after she 'helped' me wrap the Christmas presents for our friends the other day, I came into the room to this sight:
She said the stack'o'presents was a 'podium', and the small wrapped item in her hand was a microphone. Love her imagination!

I'll try to get around to as many people as I can this morning before I have to unplug and head out - and catch up later when we get to our motel this evening as much as I can. I will be introducing my friends to the world of blogland this weekend, so I'll be able to do some catching up during that time as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, you really didn't have to get me all those presents but I'll take them. Have a great trip and try not to worry about the fat birds or the lack of internet. Ha, internet will be the top thing on your mind, I'm sure! ;)

Your daughter is just too cute, Stacey. You must walk around your house armed and ready with your camera.

Enjoy your trip. I'll look forward to catching up with you upon your return.

I am amazed the animals do not get to your bird feed!!! Let me know when you come back if the farm bird house is still in one piece.

How sweet of PN to be concerned about the birds! I think you've got it covered now!
And I knew she was holding a microphone before I even read about it. Duh Mom!
Have a safe and fabulous trip. Can't wait to hear all about it. Make sure you introduce your friends to the Froggy Bloggy!
