Look who came for dinner...

Last week we had a very interesting guest during dinner. As we sat outside enjoying our meal, Sam says "Mommy, look at that big bird up there". Sure enough, there was a "big bird" circling around above the trees ~ a good hundred or so feet up. A few minutes later, Sam jumps up and runs to the garage yelling that the bird had landed between our house and the neighbors. Suddenly, the bird flapped it's wings and was sitting on the next-door neighbor's handrail with a big old mouse in this mouth! He proceeded to hang out in the back yard for 10-15 minutes while he enjoyed his "dinner".
