The most scared I've ever been in my life

I don't have any pictures of this but I thought I would share regardless. Just a few minutes ago, I was sitting outside checking email. Cadence and Mitchell Larabbee (he's hanging out with us today) were inside watching Napolean Dynamite and had been playing outside and so the back door was open. All of a sudden, two birds flew into our house. I nearly peed my pants (this is not a joke)!!! They were just sitting on top of our refrigerator. Then one of them flew and got stuck in the blinds in the living room. I was about to die with 2 children in my house so I went to my bedroom and shut the door and called Chris. I told him he had to come home righ tnow because there were birds in our house. Then i went back into the living room and the one that was in the blinds was gone. So, I got Mitchell to go into the kitchen to see if there were still birds and he was like "yup there's one sitting on top of the refrigerator" So then it took off flying and went into Cadence's room. So we shut the door and waited until Chris got home.

So, Chris got here like 2 minutes later (but it seemed like 3 days) and we told him that the bird was in Shae's room. Chris said I had to hold up a blanket in front of Shae's door to try and make the bird go out the front door. Well thankfully, when he opened Shae's door the bird was stuck in her blinds so he just shut her door, took out the other screen from the other window and then pulled up the blinds so the bird would fly out the other window.

And now we are bird-free again and I will keep doors closed from now on.

Hysterical!!! The "live version" made me laugh for 10 minutes straight on the phone today... even if you couldn't hear me thanks to laryngitis. If I were you, I don't think I could have gone in my house...I'd have probably just made the kiddos come outside with me while I called for help. I'm glad to know you're bird free now! ;)

what's with you guys and birds? :) We like to bird watch at our house. We have beautiful red headed woodpeckers that I call "Ewan McGregors" (because he is beautiful). I forget their real names but I have Reepicheeps and Srgt. Peppers and Suzies and Georges. I know I'm weird. I'll have to remember you don't like birds if you ever come up oh and that deleted post is me, sorry my computer froze.

That is hilarious! We've never had birds, but we have pesky lizards all over our back yard- sometimes they get in the house. You would laugh hysterically if you knew all the ways I've tried to get them out (mainly by using my boys!)! The best yet though was spraying it down with carpet cleaner! Works like a charm!
