It is with great pride that we introduce our 2015 Fall Stuffie Team. Earlier today, Schatzie and I were forced to choose our fall stuffie team. It was a difficult decision since we had 30 stuffies in our basket. Mom said we had to reduce the team to half. I screamed HALF!!!! So we nosed thru the basket and decided on the following sixteen. She was right, a few of the stuffies really did need to make the trip to the Stuffie Bridge. So they were wrapped carefully and will be picked up tomorrow by the big yellow truck. God Speed good and faithful stuffies you gave your all and we are truly grateful.
In no particular order here is the Fall Team, freshly washed and dried; Pink, Goofy, Mr. Bill, Ducky, Arnie, Ziggy, Ribbit, Ally, Penguin, Sock, Sid, Lamby, Raffy, Hedge and Choppy and Baby.
I know 16 is not half, but after some pleading mom gave into our Sweet 16 demand!! Please note that Mr. Bill and Goofy are on the DL. Mr. Bill has a back injury and Goofy has lost his eyes. We were finally able to convince mom that those two just couldn't leave the team yet despite their injuries. After all, they had made the trip from the mainland with us over two years ago and we couldn't bare to release them from duty--not yet!!
In case you are wondering why we had to reduce our Stuffie Roster. Mom was reading Murphy and Stanley's mom's Facebook page today. Their mom said she was going to start reducing her "stuff" by one item a day. So my mom thought it was a great idea and decided to start her downsizing with our Stuffies! Why didn't she start with all her shoes?!?!?!? Guess she played the MOM card. Wonder what great stuff mom will throw out tomorrow!!
Love, Gracie, Schatzie and the Sweet 16!!
