Let us all take a moment...

and reflect back on the life of bee. It is with heavy heart that I inform you of her demise. You see, we are dogsitting a dog for my brother and sister-in-law until they are able to move into their condo. Yes, you can already see where this sad story is going. I was in here in the kitchen when I heard this jingling behind me. I thought it was addy playing with a jingle bell ornament, as we were in the process of dismantling the tree. Finally I turned around to look, and there was that dog chewing bee's head off. I freaked out and went ape on that dog. All I really remember is saying "NO!" in a horrified voice a whole bunch of times. The kids heard me and came running to see what was going on, and when Addy saw bee she cried the most heartbreaking cry I have ever heard.
But let us not dwell too long on her untimely death. Instead, I will point you to this blog here so that we can all remember what a great little companion she was for Addison.
The good news is that I do have that other bee from ebay. THANK HEAVENS! I bleached her, roughed her up a little, and now everything is hunky-dory again. It took Addy a few hours to get used to the new one because she definitely knew something was different, but we just kept saying "nana fixed her! and she's all clean and pretty again!"- finally she swallowed the story and went to sleep with her, though still not as snuggled up with her as she used to do with Old Bee.
Thank you all for your love and prayers as we get through this difficult time.

That is freaking hilarous!!! You better buy like 5 more of those in case of crazy animals on the rampage to destroy little bee's!

Oh my gosh!!! I can't believe that Bee got eaten! That's totally crazy. You are totally lucky you found that one on eBay. Seriously!

Please tell Addy that we send our deepest regrets.


Oh, by the way, I found this ring tone that is a "toot your horn" sound that you like to make, I thought of you, it was so funny!

Esther has a red truck and a Super Man she likes to sleep with (very comforting hey?), but it's not a necessity, thank goodness! You're lucky you have a back up! I think that's why Heavenly Father blessed women with two boobs! Running out of milk in one has been the only thing that caused my babies panic!
