"What kind of devil bird chirps at night?"

Can you name that movie quote? It's from Failure to Launch, and it's been going through my mind a lot lately. We LOVE our new house, and having our bed back, but unfortunately the sleep hasn't been so great. We have all kinds of birds in our backyard, and they chirp at all.hours.of.the.night. We don't even have a tree in our backyard, but I guess they live in the ones behind our fence. It has bugged me because I can't sleep in, but since the time has changed they have gone even MORE crazy. If you go to bed at 10 or 11 or 12, they are chirping. If you wake up at 3 or 5 or 6, they are chirping. And it's not just one, it's a variety. I'm all about birds and springtime and new life, but "What kind of devil bird chirps at night???" Daddy finally got tired of it, and after supper at Kristo's we made a trip to Wal-Mart to try and find a remedy.
These pictures were taken after ME's nap. Apparently the birds don't bother her. Ha! We had a little outside playtime.

And found some dandelions on our walk.

Nice, new face

My choice at Wal-Mart was the owl. I figure there's no harm in scaring them away. I don't want to harm them. I just want them to shut up!

She was cracking us up with the "who who."

And Brad's choice was a slingshot. Ha! We'll see how tonight goes!
