Christmas Family Activities

Living out the saying:
"Christmas is for the Birds..." only in the strictest sense!
Here we are (L and "me"), mixing birdseed.
We're standing on a stepladder, filling the birdfeeder with our mix.
The birds will be happy... in the morning!
Speaking of feeding the birds... we're all in the act! Even the two year olds!
M holds a finished project: A tongue depressor coated with thinned peanut butter and dipped in bird seed mix.
The next step is to hang them outdoors.We're almost ready to head outdoors! :-)
The process of hanging them. Daughter C with niece I.Are we done, yet? Son-in-law K with daughter A)

Ta-dah!The birds are enjoying our treat again today. Perhaps you'll see a couple if you click on the snowy picture.

Those are precious photos! Following is something I'm sharing with family bloggers, as a suggestion, and a plea, to use the New Year to learn something fascinating with the kids. Help your kids safely navigate the Internet to learn why 2008 is being called "The Year of the Frog." Like Kermit said, it's hard being green, especially today. Amphibians face the worst mass extinction since the dinosaurs -- but there is a sensible, very achievable way to stop it. Learn about it, with your kids, by visiting, or my blog, Zoos around the world are ringing in this special new year by having kids play the leapfrog game on New Year's Eve. But still, on the Web sites I just mentioned, you can download a fun, New Year's frog mask, see videos that explain it all, including one by Jeff Corwin, and learn a lot of fascinating things about amphibians. The main thing killing frogs isn't what you'd suspect -- it's a fungus that broke out of Africa in the 1940s. Oh, and instead of banging pots and pans at midnight, go outside and play family leapfrog. Have fun. Hoppy New Year.
