This is Duckie now.
And this is Duckie when he was just born.
What a difference, but we love him just the same. We’re quacking nuts over this duck. To the memories!
Duckie arriving that first Easter to surprise Laura.
Duckie settling in and developing quite the personality.
Duckie singing. Duckie dancing. Duckie swinging. Duckie sledding. Duckie laughing.
Duckie wearing T-shirts and baseball caps and scarves.
Duckie riding in the red wagon to play at Beth’s across the street.
Duckie flying down the stairs.
Duckie trekking to the mall.
Duckie blowing out birthday candles.
Duckie riding in a laundry bag though the airport and then the skies, all the way to San Diego.
Duckie attending sleepovers.
Duckie meeting boyfriends.
Duckie visiting college.
Celebrate the Duckies in your life (be they rabbits, bears, dolls, dogs, monkeys, lions, or any other huggables), and give them an Easter hug from Duckie. Oh and one from me, too.
Happy Easter! I hope your basket overflows with chocolate and PEEPS!
(P.S. No doubt Duckie thinks WE look a bit older too.)
Just updated the post to include lions after two lion comments! ROAR! Reminds me that my brother and I had a lion puppet we loved named “Liony.” I know, not real original.
