And then there were four (and a bird)

Last night at Starbucks, I found the most adorable little deer in the clearance bin. I left behind four of his brothers and a small red bird, promising myself that I'd go back today (without Spouse, who scoffed at the notion!) and get the rest of them. I could not stand the thought of them waiting forlornly for a home! :-)

By the time I could get back to Starbucks today, sure enough, one of the remaining brothers had been adopted! So I snagged the three that were left (and the bird) and went on my way.

They are just about the sweetest little guys!

And the bird will be cute on the tree.

I must admit, they seem very happy to be reunited!

Oh the family is together again! They are so adorable and I LOVE the little bird. I laughed so hard when I read your post about finding your phone in the washer. Funny how things up in there. Hope you are enjoying the snow too.

They are so cute! I can see why you went back for them.

Oh Janet, we ARE sisters!!!! I have a slew of them as well (as I already had a reindeer collection, these were perfect!)

I got six of the small and three of the large deer. And three birds too.

They ARE very cute! I woulda rescued them too:)

I've been a hard-nose about stuffed animals as I still have hundreds (well slight exaggeration) from my childhood that I have/can pass on...but in a moment of weakness lately I did buy Christopher a $14 emperor penguin (ADORABLE)...he named it Flippers and it was worth every penny. Maybe I'll have to blog about stuffed animals:)
