Boo Hoo . .Christmas is over. I know. It's been over for awhile, but I'm just a little slow reconciling it. I've been cleaning up and putting away the decorations and the trimmings. There's been a consensus though, that twinkle lights and candles be left as they are a bit longer. At least through winter. And snow fox, a handmade gift by one sister for the other, for cute company. (Pattern from Mollie Makes.)
Speaking of critters, we finally solved the mystery of the disappearing suet cake. Not a clue or a crumb had been left behind. The poor birdies were robbed twice before we finally caught the culprits on our spy cam this morning. They made off with the whole lock, stock and barrel.
The evidence does not lie. Not one, but two little raccoons did we spy! Even with all the wiring and rigging they somehow managed to remove the whole thing from the tree. We found the empty feeder in the shrubs with the metal hanger still attached. I wish I knew where these two marauders scampered off to. The birds are not happy about this situation either. They keep eyeing us through the kitchen window. Fortunately, the snow has melted and they can eat bugs again for awhile until I can get to town to buy another seed cake. From now on, will have to remember to bring it inside come sundown.
In the meantime, I made these again. So yummy!
