Our most amazing neighbour

Lena, our neighbour, lives across the street, and she is the most amazing person.  She is the neighbour you go to if you need help with anything, and she is always there to lend a hand.  She is the gal with the snow blower who helps dig us out on stormy winter days.  Thanks Lena, you are a life saver when the snow plow leaves a mountain of icy chunks at the end of our drive.

The other day she was telling me about a time when she was in elementary school, and worked on her first papier mache project.  She didn't like the finished project at all, and always wanted to try again.  So as an adult, she set about to do another project, and Germaine,,the papier mache giraffe.  This is the actual size of a new born baby giraffe.  She invited the kids over to take a picture with the giraffe, and they were more than happy to oblige.
JJ is quite pleased to go for a ride.
Too cute
Danica's turn to make friends.
She sat on Germaine too, but preferred to stand beside her to have a snuggle.
