Last summer Mickey became attached to a small stuffed dog. We decided to switch it out at that time, because we couldn't find a replacement. So we ordered two bigger ty dogs. So we had two in case we lost one.

A couple of weeks ago, the most horrible thing happened. We went to the Farmer's Market and momma lost Sparky! Oh my! Luckily we had back up at home. So momma went home and promptly ordered to more from Amazon.

We got the replacements the next week. But Mickey knows the difference. Slowly we have been taking "Sparky" backups out on errands. But when it is time for sleep, she wants none other than the original.

I think slowly the others will find that special place in her life, but it will take time. It reminds me of the Velveteen Rabbit, "Sparky" has become "real".

Mickey Looks More Like????

Saw this and thought it would be kind of fun to see the results. It is very funny to me that no matter where we go there is always someone who will tell us just who Mickey looks like. One day I went to Jeff's work. I walked in and the receptionist said, "Oh, she looks just like her daddy". Then I went to the back and a sales guy said, "Oh, she looks just like her momma". Now who was right?

Do you agree???

Visitng Gramma's house!

Last week we went to see Great Grandma Rose. It was tiring trip. New sights, sounds and people to see. Mickey danced and was her usual self, a ham! She enjoyed being with Grammie Syl, her buddy!

Can't you tell from the picture that she is "washing her hands". I think that it was just a ploy to get Grammie to let her play in the sink. Hee, hee.

Playing At the Botanical Garden

But she didn't sleep well so we didn't stay our whole trip and decided to come a day early. On the day we left we went to the aquarium. Mickey had a blast!

With the BIG FISH

These are Goldfish??

It always amazes me to see the awe and wonder in Mickey's eyes when she is discovering something new for the first time. With the goldfish she stuck her hand over the water and one of the fish came and "kissed" her fingers. She loved it. Momma not so much!
