Easy Peasy Winter Bird Feeder

Thursday was National Bird Day, so we celebrated by making a few super simple winter bird feeders. It kept the littles busy for a good while and doubled as an act of kindness toward our feathered friends -- a win all around. Let us know if you make one! INGREDIENTS 1/2 c coconut oil 2 tbsp all-natural peanut butter (no salt or sugar added) 2 c bird seed INSTRUCTIONS Soften coconut oil in microwave until almost completely liquid Stir in peanut butter and add bird seed Place cookie cutters on baking sheet and fill with bird seed mixture, pressing down firmly; use a straw to make a whole for the string Freeze for at least one hour Remove cookie cutter carefully and tie string through hole Hang

The Thoughts That Count: Our No-Stuff New Year Philosophy

Can we go back to Christmas for a sec? In the constant warp speed that is parenting it feels like eons ago already, but there are still forlorn trees strewn across curbsides and rolls of wrapping paper that still haven't made their way up to the attic. Or is that just our house? My husband and I were very deliberate with the presents we bought our kids this year. There was no going overboard, they were thrilled for the most part and Christmas was an all-around jolly success. But a nagging feeling in the back of my mind grew at every consumer report mention of how much money Americans collectively spend over the holidays. It is an obscene amount. On Cyber Monday alone, we spent $6.6 billion.
