Is it Friday?

I'm not feeling the bestest today so I thought I would keep my fave fives simple today.

DS and I had a mini photo shoot today. Here are a few of my faves:

My personal fave is the one of Monkey peeking out from behind his beloved Sticks. Sticks is a very special stuffed dog. He's 18 years old! My mother bought him for me the summer I turned 10. I had given up one of my favourite stuffed animals (a cat from my Oma) to my baby sister without being asked to. My mother was so touched she took me to pick out a new one. I picked this little Gund puppy. My sister spent years trying to steal him from me. I let her borrow him sometimes, but wouldn't give it up. DS latched onto it when he was about 6 months old. I gave it up to him. Monkey loves to sleep with him.

DS also latched onto one of my sister's stuffed tigers. Since, years ago, I gave up a cat for a dog; I thought it was fitting to give my sister a dog for the tiger she gave up to my son. I found a new release of the same Gund puppy to give to her. She was delighted.

Tomorrow I'll have a few new layouts to share.

Until next time...
