Miss Rebekah Claire is under the weather. She has been running a fever and I know that her throat is hurting. "No!" has been her favorite word. I literally had to put ear plugs in to deal with her crying today...I am turning into my husband!
These boys sure do love each other....
Well, maybe not THAT much:)
Snake in the yard! We had a very long black rat snake in the backyard. I think it is the same one we saw moving very slowly in the fall when it was cooling down. I crack myself up at how I don't freak out about snakes anymore. I mean...I don't want to hold one or anything, but if I see one that I know isn't venomous I just kinda waive and go about my merry way.
Sad story alert! Christian called and told me that he had a surprise for us one day. I was sitting in a chair reading to the boys when the kitchen door opened. I looked up and saw this sweet thing
wander into the house. A friend had raised it for a few weeks and then was heading out of town. Christian volunteered to keep him. He warned us that fawns this young don't usually make it and that we shouldn't get too attached. Um, excuse me?
How can you not get attached to Bambi when you are feeding him a bottle every 3-4 hours?
Levi was the perfect little "mama", but I am sorry to say that about a week after we got little Ben the Buck, he wasn't doing so well. We nursed him the best we could, but he just didn't make it. We have had lots of discussions about death lately. I am grateful that it is over pets and not people!! There were some sad faces around here for sure!
On a lighter note....Sarah has said some pretty funny things lately! Anna Grace had her over at her sister-in-law's house (who is expecting). She said, "Momma, Tracy has a baby in her belly. I saw it when I was at her house...it was just all hangin' out in there bubbling out!" She also has been watching Snow White a good bit lately and she calls it "Snow White and the Seven Dorks":) She is such a clutz...it cracks me up when she has a particularly nasty fall and all that you see are the bottoms of her feet and she yells out, "I'm OK!"
