Dr. Mabel, Stuffed Horse Vet

Lucy the horse has been around since Mabel was 2. She's been back and forth across the country, participated in lots of sleepovers, gone to school and church, ridden in the car, and played with Mabel every day. She goes to tea parties, Barbie parties, spa parties, plays Pokemon and doctor, attends school, and gives the best hugs.

She's been restuffed twice. Recently she busted her rump and Mabel wanted to fix her first thing on a Saturday morning.




She patiently listened to directions and did a wonderful job securing Lucy's tail back to her bottom.





Mabes was so proud.




After her veterinary work was complete, she decided she should work on another sewing project. So she made a stuffed dog in about 45 minutes.






As far as life skills go, this one goes to Mabel. At least the other 3 will be able to take their sewing repairs to their baby sister when they are grown.

THIRTEEN

Andrew George turned 13 in August! He asked for his favorite - yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I obliged because making their birthday cakes is a morsel of joy that the Lord provides to me as their mother and it is my favorite. Also a morsel of joy - when he asked me to make it gluten free so that I could eat it, too. Precious Roo.

Dude was spoiled this year and got to go to Valley Fair with church friends for his birthday. Heck of a celebration, I say!




Oh, this child. He is so special. He is so strong and confident in such unique ways, such an old soul. He's also silly and distracted by anything shiny.




He loves to layer music, did you know?

He also got a shiny new haircut and my heart exploded!




So proud of you, Andy. We are so very blessed by you every single day. And the pets - you love the pets harder than any one of us. What a heart you have! So proud.
