Our Deer Friend

Hello Neighbors!

How appropriate that during our Pets on Parade event that our family should find a baby deer in the backyard.  No mom in sight!  And to clarify here, this is not a pet, nor will we be trying to keep him/her.  Anyway we managed to get a few pictures, and called the local wildlife contact.  We were told, not to worry that mom left her/him there for the day and would come back at night.  Well, we enjoyed watching him/her throughout the day and first thing in the morning the children went out to check and didn't see her.  We were sure mom came back and when my daughter saw a mom with her fawn about 1/2 a block away, we were quite happy that they were back together..

But....when they went out to play volleyball this evening, who should appear in some brush near the fence?  Yep, you guessed it.  The fawn again.  Now, I don't mind fawn sitting during the day, I mean really, all we do is keep a distance and occasionally take pictures, but I do want to know that mom actually came back and fed the little thing.  Our contact said they needed to wait a couple days before they would take any action.  So, we will wait and see what happens tonight and if she/he is still there, I think we will make another phone call.  In the meantime, enjoy the pictures!  He/she is adorable!  Also, all pictures were taken at a distance with a good lens.

Watching volleyball!

I will try to update you all later  this week on our deer friend!  See you At the Fence!

Yes they are. It is the size of a decent sized small dog. We are guessing it is only a couple of days old. My male Sheltie is larger than this baby.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June. Our family has been taking the time between now and then to be together and remember what a light mom was. I came on towards the end of last year and was planning on fully moving my interviews and review to this website. I intend to to so partially to keep mommas beautiful website going. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
