Fee bought me these little chickens and sheep when we were in Baton Rouge, I could barely get Edgar away before he was back investigating...and tasting. The other little figures are the ones I've been working on for "what lies within" - they are on hold for a while, while I make some decisions about them One has a key, one a mask, one a moon charm, and one has two hearts (for "i carry your heart, i carry it in my heart").
One reminds me of a monk, and he may end up as a St. Francis figure with a bird "within." The latest one has hands in anjali mudra and can be imagined saying Namaste.
I didn't take any pictures of Bryce Eleanor on Tuesday or yesterday morning, but here is one from last week. She looks so solemn, but the truth is that she is always in the best mood, cheerful, and laughing when she wakes up.
Today is a difficult day, as Chris left for his deployment to Iraq this morning. It will be a long 6 months for Amelia and Chris. We are so proud of our son-in-law; he is such a wonderful husband and father. Fee and I will miss him, too.
