Hayley was quite surprised when she opened the box to find a flute with book and stand for her American Girl dolls, as she also plays the flute.
The bed and flute was for Hayley since Kathleen has an American girl bed already, but the clothes they divided evenly. They were so excited! :-)
Hayley was also excited to receive her check for the fundraiser she did for the SPCA. She raised $119.00!
Plus she has had other monetary donations taking the total to about $200.00 raised. We are so proud of her efforts!
We did another weekend run to our local market and for about $20.00 we got all this!
Our uninvited visitor came on two legs....
A Blue Heron!
He was unwanted because he was on a mission!
This little bugger was stealing our Koi out of our pond :-( I'm so sad as we only have three left.
So as a temporary fix we pulled out an old baby gate and used it to cover the pond until we can get netting or something. So frustrating! Our neighbors are having issues with them at their little pond too.
At first we were excited to see him in our yard until we realized what he was doing!!!
It has been quite a busy whirlwind here, my sister, brother-in-law and niece just left so it's time to get ready for the busy week ahead. Will post more about the girl's little party tomorrow.
