A new treasure...priceless! Kipper is speechless!
A box for Chad...
A day that started off sad has ended on a happier note. Yes, our Haley is ill and yes, it will be a rough go for awhile but just knowing that there are such people as all of you, who care so much, makes the load lighter. My sis in law is to speak with the vet tomorrow and the doctor seems determined to persuade them to go for the surgery...she says it could extend her life by a couple of years. I still have no idea what they will decide but they will take everything into consideration I know. I have hugged Kipper so much today that he is all tuckered out! What a hard life!
Lucy and Henry each got a good brushing (which they love!) and they each had some yummy baked chicken with their dinners.
Grace came home with such a sweet surprise today! The cutest little clay dog! She made it in her art class last week. They were molded, painted and fired at school and oh how cute it is! A pottery Kipper! She was so proud of her creation and it tickled me to pieces to receive it. You can see from the picture that Kip is simply overwhelmed by this artistic tribute. Ahem...
This evening, Mom, Grace and I had dinner with our friend Terri (TK Angels blog). Good food and conversation always lightens my mood! Thanks Terri!
In the last picture, you can see what Grace and I did today! We finished packing Chad's January box. It will be on it's way by tomorrow afternoon.
