Monkey made of LOVE

Kallie received a Monkey made of love from Great Grandma Theroux. We found a pattern for this monkey and Kallie really, really wanted it so Great Grandma Theroux made it for her. She absolutely loves her monkey and calls him George from Curious George. He's a pretty cute little fella.


Well we planted a garden this year and it turned out to be bigger than what I intended it to be. We have tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupes, corn, beans, onions and lettus. The Lord has blessed us with some rain and sun shine so the gardens is coming along. We have already picked a banana pepper and bell pepper and hopefully soon our squash with be big enough and the tomatoes will be red. Kallie loves the garden and to pick the vegetables even if they are not big enough to pick or ripe. We are working on that.

Duck Heaven

On Easter Popa and Memaw bought Kallie two beautiful ducks. A yellow duck and brown duck found their home to be with us and Kallie too be their loving mom. We have worked everyday feeding, watering, bedding and playing with the ducks. They have grown so much and have become quite a part of our family. During the day we have a pen we put them in and they just play and play. I would turn on the water hose and squirt the ducks much to their enjoyment. However today was a very sad day for us. While Kallie and I went to town to run an earn one of the neighbours dogs broke into the duck pen and killed the ducks. I found the feather of Kallie favorite yellow duck but could not find trace of the brown duck. I headed to the neighbours full of anger and sadness for my daughter. She couldn't understand what happen to her ducks and why anything would want to hurt them. I found myself trying to explain to a 2 1/2 year old what happened and why. The only thing I could get her to understand was her ducks were in Duck Heaven with God. I had told the neighbour I couldn't find trace or feather of the brown duck so please keep an eye out but the yellow duck was found dead in their front yard. At about 4:30 this afternoon the neighbour brought to our front door Kallie's wonderful brown duck. While her duck is missing some feathers and pretty sore I think it will make it. This is a precious duck for my dear daughter and is positive her Popa and Memaw is going to have to buy her another yellow duck. The yellow one was her favorite. I thank my Lord and Heavenly Father that he brought the brown duck home for my daughter. These ducks were her first pet and to lose them at the hand of a dog has had its toll on her. I can't tell you how happy we are to have you Home little brown duck.
