Just trying to give you an idea about how small Sparty is or how big Clancy is....the gray box on the side of Clancy's neck is his electric collar....we have an electric fence and all the dogs have a collar....it works amazingly well....it is also called an invisible fence since the cable is underground. Works on a signal...the dogs hear a beep if they get too close to the fence and then, if they ignore the beep and keep going...they get a small electric "zap"...they are all excellent about not testing their boundaries. The "zap" is not hurtful...it is like a static electricity charge.
19 years ago....literally, my husband built this Barbie doll house for our daughter... Doll houses were very popular then but they were little Victorian houses with tiny itty bitty pieces. My husband decided that since she loved Barbie's, a Barbie house would be a good thing. I can not tell you how many hours were spent in front of this playing with Barbie and all her "stuff". It has been residing with my neighbor across the street and her girls have now also outgrown it. Most all of the furniture Santa brought our daughter has survived all of these years and many hours of play. It now has a new home with my 3 nieces. I put it in the back of my suburban -a very difficult thing....the dimensions on this are 52" height, 50" width, and 28" deep. I can only assume there will be many more hours of play and enjoyment for them!
This is what the daughter looked like as she was leaving for Singapore. She is traveling with my 88 year old Motherinlaw. They spent Christmas with one of my husband's brothers and the oldest son flew down from Beijing to celebrate Christmas as well......
What better way to welcome a new year but with the birth of not one but TWO Babies! My goddaughter(who herself is a TWIN!) delivered 2 healthy twin girls New Year's Eve....Congratulations to the new family!
