Her name is Gracie.
She was found a week before school started under the huge pine tree in our front yard.
My little girl "rescued" her (Moooommmmmmm there's a baby animal and it's still alive!!!)
and she does the perfect imitation of me and how I responded when she found her ....
We figured she was about 2 weeks old and was about dead
but thanks to Google, of course a whole lot of Dr. Pepper (for me that is) and kitten formula feedings every 2 hours, we now have a pet squirrel who does "stinketh" up our home.
Yeah, is that a word?
She is horrifically spoiled, has traveled 8 hours in a car up to Seattle and back and has
made everyone who's met her fall madly deeply in love with her!
Of course none of the kids in my daughter's kindergarten class believe her as she tries to enchant them with the delightful daily stories of Gracie the squirrel,
so here's our Valentine creation for the Inquiring Minds who want to know
what life with a pet squirrel is like!
I was inspired by Alissa over at 24-7-365!
She did the cutest photo Valentine's for her kids!
I haven't been able to get the idea out of my head, I just loved it!
This was the first time we've made "Homemade" Valentines. We had so much fun putting these together!
My daughter helped lay everything out, I glued, she glitter glued, she signed them and I taped on the treats.
We just used Picasa to whip these out!
My hubby says we are silly
and of course I had to very last minute make some up for me
with the help of Scrapblog to add the funny disguises for a little party I get to go to!
Yes, we really are nuts for Gracie the squirrel!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
