Karter is the sweetest child, and melts my heart every time I see him. But yesterday after he gave me one of the sweetest gifts I've ever received.
Having gone to Sulphur Springs Christian Church for 27 years now, these people ARE part of our family and we love them dearly.
And every so often we have a fun and game night with our church family...and hysteria and laughter always ensues!
Just being this close to such a vicious animal as a wild hyena is enough to send chills through my body.
Even if he IS stuffed.
For all of you older folks (like me!) who didn't do the smash-cake thing with our children (I gave mine a slice, but not a whole cake...seems like a waste of perfectly good cake and icing, but what do I know?....), the idea is that you give the baby their own small birthday cake and let them go at it.
Well, actually in this photo he was flying across the wall of Taxidermist Steve's studio. But now he's hanging in the alcove above our entertainment center, waiting to be joined by Jill and his other 6 mallard friends chillin' in their cattail-lined pond edge.
Yes, I've named him Jack.
Jack the Quack.
The diorama we're working on is going to be an awesome piece of art once it's finished. I'll keep you posted (of course I will!).....
We saw lots and LOTS of turbines! Us Hoosiers are very familiar with the hundreds of turbines along I-65 in northern Indiana, but every couple of hours we saw several more groups of turbines all the way north to Appleton.
I made them these sweet little tutus and took a gazillion photos of my precious babes!
I never knew there was a Winnebago Indian tribe, whose chief was Red Bird and who lived in what is now Wisconsin.
...to meander the trails alongside a finger of the Fox River.
