On the weekend, I was doing some cleaning out of boxes that have been hiding in the closet for a year (I moved to Ottawa exactly a year ago yesterday.) It turns out that I still have an embarrassingly large collection of stuffed animals. I think they have been dispersed in various boxes in the past years and they all came together on Sunday. Here are my very favorites:



Skunky(a skunk) and Mattie(a beaver, Note: I gave him new teeth when his original teeth wore off)


Snake-Dog (never had a real name): Isn't this the kind of toy that throws a child off-kilter?
