2009 Annual Bird Feeder Contest

We hosted our Annual Bird Feeder Contest this year and we all think it was the best one yet! There were numerous contenders for the "Best in Show" award and we are proud to say that BEN won!! His modern design and supreme use of the power tools secured him the winning trophy- well there is not really a trophy, but he does get bragging rights! As you can see, he is very proud!


Shawn put up quite a fight, he even lobbied that Ben's feeder was really a squirrel feeder. His design was great, but in the end, he did not win.


Here is what the rest of us could come up with in 2 hours and shared materials from the garage!

Alex went with the minimalist approach:


Sherry went with the cute approach:


Shelley went with the holiday inspired approach:


Mike went with a basic approach:


But in the end, it was the kids who had all of the fun! They got to get naked and paint!

I like Shelley's the best (sorry Sherry). But I guess the CONGRATS goes to Ben!
