Partridge in a pine tree (without a head).


This year I adorned our Christmas tree with darling, 
little birds in all colors and sizes. 
The girls have strategically placed a few of their favorite
 birds on different spots on the tree at eye level since
they are short and can only reach so high. 
Jimmy has attempted to eat them a thousand times during the day
since the birds are at eye level for him, too.
The girls get so mad at him and I hear about 500 times a day
"Oh no, Clairey, look he's got another one!"
Enter Claire the enforcer:
"No Jim! You are a bad boy.  Don't eat our birds."
 I'll give you a bird count on Christmas and let you know how many are left.
