    The Mystery Box

    May 21, 2009 by Brandy Vencel

    I‘ve been a little busy the last 24 hours or so. There are many reasons for this, which is often the case with busyness, but my number one reason arrived in a teensy, tiny box yesterday morning:

    This box was unusually noisy. It also made tiny movements if you watch it carefully. I went to the Post Office to pick it up with only my two littlest children. The big kids squealed when I brought it home…and opened it up:

    We set them free in their New Home {actually, four of these little ladies were only our guests for the afternoon before their new owners came and picked them up}. They ran all over to explore and attempt eating newspaper:

    They were travel-weary. One even decided that the first thing she needed to do was take a bath in our ducky “gatorade”:

    No names yet. We are still learning their personalities. That yellow one you see is not ours; she belongs to Kimbrah. She earned her name, Sassafras, right away! I’m hoping everyone else is so easily and obviously named as we get to know them.

    Wow, it’s kind of cool to see their story from the first moment the box was in your house!

    It’s funny because so far, all of our ducks totally fit their name! Cheetah is just funny because she is the one that sits around a lot. 🙂 And whenever we leave the room, Sassy starts in with her PEEP PEEP PEEP PEEP PEEP and she doesn’t stop until we come back. I don’t know if its because she misses us, or she’s just sassing us to our backs after we leave. 🙂

    I hope you are loving your little gals as much as we are loving ours! 🙂
