For a “Deer” Little Girl

Two weekends ago I ventured to the ‘burg to a land full of blow-up slides and screaming children for my niece’s 4th birthday party. Clearly, I’d do anything for that little girl, and I now have a wicked chest cold to prove it!

For the past two+ years Cecelia has been OBSESSED with deers. Every time my mom calls my brother’s house to talk to CeCe you hear her in the background (nowhere near the phone) “Grammy, did you see any deers?”. This first thing she said when she came to stay overnight at my house “Aunt DD, maybe we will see some deers” My reply “No. Cece, most likely we will see cows.” She replied “But MAYBE we will see some deers.” Gotta love her persistent nature!

So, in honor of her special day I could make her nothing less than…a deer dress!

To her, everything is a family (of 3). So I have a Dada Deer, a Mama Deer and a Baby Deer.

Even though she was a bit over whelmed with the going-ons of her party, I could see she loved her dress. Her eyes got real big and she looked at the family of deers…then moved onto the next toy. haha Gotta love 4 year olds! I was delighted to hear that later on that evening she was chattering on about her deer dress. I can’t wait to see her in it! She is going through a dress phase, so of course I had to compete and create the dress she would want to wear everyday! hehe I think I won that challenge! AND I hand dyed the hemp to boot!

I was also delighted to see some other handmade gifts. Her Grandma (Krystal’s mom) made some super cute strawberries and a box to keep them in, and her Mamaw made a matching nightgown for her and baby! Yay for handmades!!!

Ultimate Loyalty

This video is so beautiful and yet so tragic. I wish more humans held such qualities. The reporters conversation has been translated and posted below the video.

We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.

He has a collar. He must be someone’s pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.

Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.


Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.

The dog is protecting him.

Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.

I can’t watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.

Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.

Yes! Yes! He is alive.

He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.

Oh good. He’s getting up.

It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It’s just amazing that they survived through this all.
