Things I Love Thursday- Hummingbirds!


Yeah! I am actually HERE for things I love Thursday!!! The last 3 weeks I think I have been gone!

So, Thursdays here on 8-Muddy Boots is Things I Love Thursday, where we ask you "What do YOU love?". You can either link up or you can, add a comment! But please do share what you love! We would LOVE to hear it! =)

So, what do I love today? Well, I was just reminded tonight of one thing I love. And that is Hummingbirds! I love watching them fly around. They are just amazing. I remember years ago (like 9 or 10), when we lived in our first home, we had a hummingbird feeder out, and you could actually sit really still by the feeder and watch them. THEN, we figured out you could hold your finger on the little peg (that they can sit on) and they would actually land on your finger and drink from the feeder. It was amazing. I will have to pull those pics out someday...

So, here is my little hummingbird friend that came to visit:


It's kind of blurry, but I was inside and didn't want to scare it by coming outside. Plus, I turned my flash off so it wouldn't get scared off. So I got a fuzzy pic. Oh well, I love them just the same!

So, now it is YOUR turn! What do YOU love today?! Please share by linking up below (directly to the post) or leave a comment! Thanks!

Pretty hummingbirds! Our bird feeder broke b/c the black birds we have in our yard pecked the wooden sides of it and it came crashing down. Those darned birds are too smart!

Thursdays are great for us because they are late-start at school. This morning my girls and I did a word search, had breakfast together and didn't have to rush! That's a great start to a Thursday!

I love hummingbirds too! One came right up to our window the other day, and it was gone before I could get a pic. They are definitely one of God's coolest creatures!

' love your blog and especially this page! Our whole family loves hummingbirds! We have hummingbird feeders all around our home. When there's a hummie at one of the feeders by our front door, we'll wait 'til they're done feeding before we pass by. I'm sure the neighbors wonder what we're doing as we stand at the end of the drive, staring at our front door for a few minutes before we approach it. :)
