This is Me

My photo
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

X is for Xenicidae

Xenicidae is a cute tiny little bird found in New Zealand. 


These sweet little birds are from the wrens family


This family has just three species; which are:

Rifleman Acanthisitta chloris
Bush Wren Xenicus longipes [Probably extinct last reported in 1972]
South Island Wren Xenicus gilviventris
 
 
So, that is my letter X for Jenny's class today. Everyone better head on over to some other Alphabet Thursday blog pages! Her sister has been sitting in on her class... and well let just say the ruler and the knuckles.... yep she's one of those!  Well if you take a peek around and see you don't have to be told twice really, I love looking around so many creative and wonderful people to visit! So here is where you go.  http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2011/03/alphabe-thursdays-letter-x.html

Those pictures are beautiful. We have a wren family that comes back every year and they flit and fly around to all of the birdhouses until they find just the right one. They are so fun to watch.
