The birds have been evicted

I don't have any pictures to share right now, but Matthew evicted the birds yesterday. I snipped at him a bit (sorry, dear!) b/c I really wanted to take pictures of him knocking it down. (Especially just in case he got pecked or pooped on...) But ten minutes before we were going to leave for church yesterday morning, he came in and announced that he knocked the nest down.

It took him quite a while in the afternoon to clean up the poop. Andrew "mowed" the yard and driveway with his bubble mower while Matthew scraped and hosed down the front porch.

Today is a beautiful day. It is especially beautiful because my father, who has Mondays off work, came and picked up Andrew. You've never seen a happier boy than my son getting buckled in his Yampa's pickup truck. They were going to the bank and Home Depot, but Andrew wouldn't have minded had they just ridden around all day. I think after that, Andrew is going to the store with my mom, where he'll eat crackers in the cart and jabber on and on. And on.

Meanwhile, I need to go feed Benjamin and continue to clean my house. Before Benjamin was born, I was pretty good at cleaning my house once a week. Now I am on an every-other-week schedule. It's not too bad, but by the middle of the second week, I feel icky.

Tomorrow, some of Andrew's little friends (and their moms, my friends) are coming over for a playdate at our house. He doesn't know it yet, but he's going to be quite excited. I'll share the news with him about five minutes before they arrive. :) (He'll be especially excited that we're having pizza for lunch; I know I'm certainly pumped about it!!)

Here are some pictures before I quit stalling and get to work:

I love Benjamin's "peace" picture! Adorable! I too wish that we could see pictures of Matthew knocking down the nest!
