painted birdhouses

I picked up a few wooden birdhouses at JoAnn's, (they were $1 each) and let Gideon paint them. When I tell Gideon we're going to paint, he says things like, "Mommy, I love you so, so much" and "Mommy, this is gonna be terrific" (It's hilarious to hear a 3 year old say anything is "terrific"). Anyway, I didn't really plan on doing anything with them but they were so cute that I decided to glue them all on top of each other and attach a string for hanging. Now don't laugh, but we poured bird seed in these tiny, decorative houses and hung them outside wishing and hoping the birds would use it as a bird feeder. No birds yet...
