At the mission post in General Cepada, Mexico we helped with home visits. Home visits are when you visit someone’s house, talk with them, read from the Bible, pray with them and give them food and medicine.
During our first home visit, all we knew about where the person lived was that it was green and by the market. It was easy to find houses near the market, but the problem was that all of them were green! We knocked on two people’s houses and they both said to go further. So we went around the corner, and there was the one green house amongst the red and orange houses. We came in and a nice lady greeted us. Her husband has Parkinson’s disease, but the missionaries knew that beforehand, so they had bought him some medicine for it.
One of the single ladies that went with us on our home visits name is Shayna. She ties her rosary around her arm. I do too! When we walk to the different houses, we hold hands and carry each other’s crosses. We pretend to ‘help carry each other’s crosses’ along the way.
Another time, we met a lady who owned a candy store. She had two girls. One of the singles that was in our group was talking in Spanish to the youngest girl. Then she saw the girl’s sister get some candy, so the younger girl started crying. Then the mom gave the girl a big big marshmallow in the shape of a flower. Then she offered it to all of us. We took it and ate it. It was so good! I wish we could have them again.
Another house we went to there was a man who had a wheel chair. His house was full of flies. Grace, Alex, and a couple of the other kids with us had to go to the bathroom.
I didn’t have to go then, so I stayed in the house. When I came out, I found out that all the kids had climbed on top of the man’s roof. There was a big barrel. They used that to climb down. I found out that Alex had fallen into the barrel and couldn’t get out!
And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said:

While we were on our mission trip in the Philippines, we helped in a village called Isla. Isla is a beautiful little farming village where the people spoke Vasayan. The houses are made of braided bamboo. Some of the people ate a simple meal such as rice. The roads are made of dirt, so when it would rain, it would get very muddy and slippery. Two days before the Bible study started, our friend Irene, from Isla, invited us to teach the kids from Isla a song for the children’s ministry. We decided the song should be a VeggieTales song called “I’ve got shoes”. The lyrics to the song are:
“I’ve got shoes, you've got shoes, all of God’s children’s got shoes!
When I get to Heaven gonna put on my shoes,
I’m gonna walk all over God’s Heaven, Heaven, Heaven!
Everybody’s talking ‘bout, Heaven, I’m going there, Heaven, Heaven, Yeah!"
We ran in the rain to a big pavilion by a church for the Isla Bible study. It was very muddy from the rain, and dark so it was hard to get there. This is what the pavilion looked like: There were wooden rooms with a space for doors, benches all around the edges and at the back of the benches were short walls. After a while more people came. Irene said that not as many people would come because it is so hard to get there in the rain.
We started dancing and singing to some fun Christian songs. One of the songs was called: “I wanna be a sheep ba ba ba ba”. Another song was called “This little light of mine”. Everyone was dancing and singing together. Some of the kids, including us, were running around in circles, while everyone else ran around us. The kids were then assigned to go to a separate pavilion with two nursing students, and Irene and her husband, Ricky. That was were the children’s ministry would be.
It started with us teaching the kids the VeggieTales song called “I’ve Got Shoes.” We taught all the kids how to act it out with movements. After that, we told them the story of Jonah and the whale. Irene's husband acted it out. Everyone laughed when Jonah,got eaten by the whale. He covered his head with a towel when he pretended to get eaten by the whale. Everybody was saying “Whaale, whaale.”
Afterwards, we asked them questions about the story. Some of the questions were “How long was Jonah in the whale?” and “What did Jonah say to the people?” Next, we sang another song called “The Banana Boat Song.” After that, we asked them if they wanted the next story to be David and Goliath, or Noah. Everyone said Noah, except two kids. One of them said David, and one of them said Goliath. But even though mostly everyone wanted Noah, Irene decided that the story should be David and Goliath. Alex acted out David and Ricky acted out Goliath. Then we asked some questions about David and Goliath.
Then Irene gave out bread to the kids as a special snack. Some of the bread had spices. Some of them were plain, but the best ones were the ones filled with cream. Everyone loved them.
The best part about it all was when we gave some of our own stuffed animals to the kids as a present. Our friend, King, got Snoopy Small, which was a small snoopy that had a shirt on. His sister, Princess was given a stuffed animal Ballerina, and our friend Drizzle got Moosy, a puppet moose. King did not want his stuffed animal, so he traded his stuffed animal for Spotty, a dog with spots and bows on her ears. Princess got Ballerina bear, and she carried it everywhere she went. Everyone loved their stuffed animals.
When we were finished, everyone ran back to the big pavilion and played the attack of the stuffed animals. Alex asked one of the kids what he named his stuffed animal that was a Texas Tech monkey, and he said that it's name was Walla. King and his cousin taught us a handshake that was really cool.
And then we went back with our friends to Canossa. But, our friend Lolei had not come to the bible study, so we gave her our big Snoopy, (it was already like she was owning it because she loved to play with it!) She loved Snoopy so much, that when we gave Snoopy to her, she asked us “It’s mine? Really?!”
Giving our stuffed animals to people fills us up with unexplainable joy. It is the virtue Joy that just stuck to all of us. Joy is one of the best virtues ever, and it seemed to stick to us for the rest of the week, it seemed to never come off. The Joy helped us through the rest of the week to do the impossible.

When you are decorating the Christmas tree at your house, you probably are thinking that the Christmas tree has many pretty ornaments. Each of them has a special meaning for it to be there on your Christmas tree. But have you wondered about the meaning of the Christmas tree and its story about Jesus?
The Christmas tree started out as not being a part of Christmas. It started out as an evergreen tree. Then a monk named Saint Boniface said that it resembled the Holy Trinity because it had three corners but was still one tree. But the story does not stop there. In the medieval times, people would celebrate a holiday on December 24. They called it the ‘Feast of Adam and Eve’. On that holiday, they would decorate evergreen trees with apples and bread twists to tell the story of Adam and Eve. It still was not a Christmas tree yet. The next story begins when a man was walking home from a Christmas Eve mass. His name was Martin Luther. He was going to see his children back at home. Then he stopped and he saw a evergreen tree. It was covered in icicles. The moonlight was reflecting off them. They looked like candles. He cut down the tree, put it in his house, and since the icicles melted, set candles on it. On Christmas day, he used it to tell the story of Jesus’s birth to his children and said that he came to be the light of the world. The last story of the Christmas tree is probably the one that we likely use today. People usually decorate it with glass ornaments and treats. Sometimes people put handmade ornaments on. But on top of all the ornaments and the tree is something that is very special. People usually put a star or angel on top. This resembles the angels who told the shepherds about Jesus, or the star who guided the wise men to Jesus. And that is the story of the Christmas tree. I got this history from a book called The Legend of the Christmas tree that is illustrated by Bill Dodge and written by Rick Osborne.
What I do to celebrate the Christmas tree in Christmas is watch Charlie Brown Christmas, make ice cream cone Christmas trees, and decorate the Christmas tree. I decorate the Christmas tree by putting plastic ornaments, glass ornaments, metal, paper, and handmade ornaments on the tree. I put an angel on top of the tree. On Christmas Eve I open up presents from my family under it. We don’t have a real evergreen tree. We have an artificial one that lights up on the tips of the branches. In my room, I put a purple plastic Christmas tree on the floor. On top of it, I put a princess. GG and Grandpa get a real evergreen tree. Granny and Tractor Pops decorate their tree with big balls. One of our friends has a Advent tree.
In conclusion, the Christmas tree isn’t just about presents. It isn’t about decorating the Christmas tree like everyone else because it is popular, either. It is about celebrating the birth of Jesus. It is about the traditions that you do. And whenever you think about the Christmas tree, it gives back great memories.

You are sprawled on the floor with little building blocks that are called Legos. You try to see how many figures you can make out of those tiny pieces. You can make so many things out of those Legos, you wonder how you could make it bigger or even life-size. I bet you are too busy making them that you don’t think about the history of legos.
Legos began when a man named Ole Kirk Christiansen began making wooden toys in 1932. Ole lived in Billund, Denmark. His house burnt down several times. His company came to be called "Lego", from the Danish phrase “leg godt”, which means "play well". In 1947, Ole created plastic toys and called them “Automatic Binding Bricks”. The Lego shape that we know today was formed by a machine that Ole bought. It was a injection-molding machine. It would mold plastic into Legos.
People have had Legos for years. I think that Legos are SO fun. You can make so many things out of them. You can make airplanes, helicopters, castles, cars, dogs etc. There are just too many to count! All you need is your imagination and the Legos. I don’t even think that you need instructions. I bet that in a matter of time anyone could build awesome masterpieces.
I am going to tell you some competitions that you can have. You can have a competition when you have to build inside of a bag. You can have a competition to see who can build the tallest tower. You can have races when you build a car and you race it. And the hardest is blind build which is when you try to build something with your eyes closed.
I got these ideas from a movie we watched. It was called A Lego Brickumentary. The movie talked about the history of Legos, which was told by a Lego, and people who have made Legos. For example, one woman made a gigantic architecture of a mountain that was covered with trees. She won a contest with it. What really impressed me was when it showed people who made a life-size Lego figure of the X-wing fighter in Star Wars.
I have made a bunch of things. I have made birds in a tree, a rover that went to Mars, and I made was a spaceship that went to Mars. I have made many more things, but I can only name a couple.
I love Legos. I think that they are one of the best toys because you can use your own imagination to build things and play with them.

In this year of mercy, we have been searching for ways to serve God’s people through personal involvement. It’s not that we couldn’t go bring a few boxes of Huggies or Cheerios to the Life Center at our church, it’s that we felt like there was something more we could do...something that would help us feel more in tune with those in need of mercy...to pop our bubble of contentedness and let us change ourselves.
We had been giving out “Mother Teresa bags” to people on the street corners for over a year now. But, it was time to go a step farther. And so, when a coworker asked for donations for hygiene kits for the homeless, I asked how we could help in person. I decided to take Grace, Brecklyn, and Alex with me, with the intent that they would help out with the kits, and hopefully be able to help distribute them in one of the homeless communities in Austin. As this was a pretty daunting undertaking for a Dad and his 3 babies, I’d like to let everyone hear how the kids felt about the entire experience.
I’ll have to admit - I was a little nervous taking the kids to downtown Austin and throwing them right into the community service fire. In fact, as I stopped by Wal-Mart to pick up some soap for the kits, my mind was already thinking of ways out. It took a bit of courage to set those thoughts aside and type the address into my GPS.
Preparing the bags
(Grace): We prepared the bags. First, we unwrapped the the multi-packages of soap and shampoo/conditioner and lotion. Then I waited for a while until everybody came in. And then I started filling a few bags by going around the table in circles, picking things up and putting them in the bag. They also had little cards in the bags that told about the importance of water. Then, they said we had to do an assembly line. I started by putting toothpaste in the bags, but then I noticed another person doing the same job, and I saw that Brecklyn and Alex needed help bringing the finished bags to the pile. And so, I did that. There were about 30 people making bags. They worked hard. Half of them had just come from a party in the hall and they saw that there was a need for help, and so they helped.
As we finished up, there was a lull while everyone organized and prayed for growth, strength, and safety. The organizers explained how we needed to stay in groups for safety, and that there would be drug use. My Dad anxiety went crazy at this point. Our kids were the youngest in the group, and something in my mind told me that I just needed to slip out the back and go home. But, I knew this was not God talking...it was my own fear that keeps me from serving God.
Stop 1: ARCH
ARCH (Austin Resource Center for the Homeless) is a large facility in downtown Austin that serves as a first services and shelter center for Austin’s homeless. We basically set up shop on the front steps.
(Brecklyn): We gave water to the homeless. And we packaged soap and things that you wash with. We gave the things that we packaged up to the homeless too. It was hot. Very hot. One person had a big brown dog. Whenever someone came toward it, the dog stood up. At the first place there were more people. The homeless people were all sitting there. Their clothes were worn out. We gave them crackers. Most of the time they were talking to other people helping with us. When we gave water, they said “Thank you” and they were happy.
(Grace): After (we) filled the bags, everyone got out of their church clothes and we started giving the homeless the supplies. It made me feel happy that we were doing something, but it also made me sad that they were in such conditions. There was trash everywhere, especially under the bridge. And it was very hot. When we handed the bags to the people, they would say “Thank you”, or “Beautiful”.- Grace
(Alex): My favorite part was the music that we all sang together. Some of the homeless people sang with us. I heard Amazing Grace and If You’re Happy and You Know It. One verse in If You’re Happy was to say Amen. We sang half of the time, and in the spots between songs, we gave water bottles and bags. And I was sad about all of the people.
As the crowd subsided, we were to move to another location down the road - under an overpass bridge, and away from the heavily protected shelter. Once again, my mind was racing - something was telling me that we have seen enough for the kids, and that this was a perfect opportunity to excuse ourselves. But, as we prayed, I was again told by God to stay the course. My prayer was being answered.
Stop 2: Bridge
(Brecklyn): At the second place, we were underneath a bridge. I couldn’t get to most of the homeless people because most of them were near the bridge’s poles and we were in the parking lot under the bridge. I am happy that I helped the people that I could. It wasn’t scary.
(Alex): There were two spots where we went. We went to the homeless shelter, then we went under a bridge. And I noticed that there was this same sign that I saw that said “Tickets may hurt, but crashes kill”. This is the same sign that I see all the time when I go on the bridge to get to the doctor’s office. But I never noticed that there were actually poor people living under that bridge.
I never noticed that there were actually poor people living under that bridge.
As we drove home, I had a hard time speaking to the kids about their experiences. My heart ached for the lives that we had just touched. That there could be such despair and pain just one block over from the famed 6th street, and that we literally drive over these lives every time we pass through - I think Alex pretty much hit the nail on the head. I now realize that it was Satan trying to convince me to leave at just the right opportunities, that I had nearly let fear prevent our kids from seeing and touching these precious lives, just like he did to Jesus in the desert (Matthew 4:1-11).

Halloween is so spooky. I like it, though. Some things are a little scary, but I know it’s not true. I am going to talk about the things that we do for Halloween, and some ideas for you.
I decorate the house for Halloween. I put paper ghosts on the walls. I also put other things on the walls like mummies, witches, vampires and pumpkins. I made a ghost puppet and I call him Mr. Boo. I made him by wrapping a paper towel around a pencil and taping it. Then, I cut it to make it look like it’s flowing. Lastly, I put the eyes and the mouth on him.
Other things that we put up I did not make. For example, we have bones. I am definitely not talking about the bones inside of us. I am talking about plastic bones. A couple years ago one of our barbie doll’s head broke off. We put the head on the gate next to the plastic skull. It was hilarious. Another decoration we have is a pretend arm and leg that we put under our garage and it looks like there is a person being smooshed. Everyone touches it to see if it is real.
We put on Halloween music. Some of them are “Jack’s Lament” (from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’) and “Grinning Ghosts”. My favorites are “The Monster Mash” and “The Purple People Eater”. I like “The Monster Mash” because one year in dance class I danced to it. I like “The Purple People Eater” because when I was 3, Mommy and Daddy would call me a purple people eater.
I like deciding what I want to be for Halloween. It is a hard decision. Sometimes I want to be a wolf. Or maybe a fox. A raccoon would be really cool. I like the idea of a black cat. Maybe not a witch. I don’t think I’ll ever be a vampire or a mummy. I don’t want to be something to scary or not too scary.
This year I decided to be Hermione for Halloween. I want to wear mommy’s graduation outfit. I want to have a chopstick for a wand. For the cat I am going to bring a stuffed animal cat and put it in my basket. I got the idea from Alex, who wanted to be Harry Potter.
I like the foods that we eat at Halloween. We have mummy dogs which are hot dogs with strips of cheese on top. We also have blood which is Kool-Aid. Another thing that we have, which is one of my favorites, is this sauce that has guacamole and olives. Everyone should know why I like it because… it has purple chips on top! The chips are arranged to make the shape of a pumpkin. For dessert we have spiders which are pretzels covered in chocolate. Sometimes we have popcorn balls. This sounds like a lot of food when you are going trick-or-treating.
The candy that I am especially going to look for is suckers, M&ms, and starbursts. I basically like chewy candy. I like that candy because it can dissolve in my mouth and I can savor it. Another thing I am going to be looking for is mice. I don’t mean real mice. I am saying “mice” because a couple years ago at one house people were giving out toys instead of candy. I got a toy rubber mouse and named her squeaky because she squeaked a lot. She doesn’t really squeak, but I pretend that she does. Grace got a journal that time and Alex got a rat.
I like Halloween. I think that it is scary. I just talked about the things that I do in Halloween. I hope that some of the ideas are helpful. Happy Halloween!
Here’s a joke for you to keep.
King Tut Who?
Where’s my Mummy?

You hear howling in the night and you go outside to see what it is. Then you see a figure facing towards the moon. What is it? You probably just saw a wolf. You might think that you should run back to home, but if you just leave it alone it might not attack you.
You might have heard a bunch of stories about wolves, like “Little Red Riding Hood”, but they all talk about wolves attacking people. Wolves have actually been developed to be afraid of people because people have hurt them.
Wolves are dogs just adapted. But that does not mean that you go up to it and hug it. Even though they are afraid of people, it will still attack. A long time ago, wolves were supposed to hunt and bring back food for people. In that way, the people did not have to hunt. The differences between a dog and a wolf is that wolves are not suited for being domestic. Another reason why is that wolves are bigger than dogs. Wolves are also used to hunting more than dogs.
Wolves have different colors. Some are grey, black, white, brown, or multicolored. There are a bunch of different types of wolves such as the Red Wolf, the Arctic Wolf, and the Grey Wolf. Wolves have different names for each of their teeth, such as incisors, canine, molars and carnassial.
Wolves travel in packs. That way when they see prey, they can attack from all sides. I'll give an example. Let’s say that the wolves are traveling in a pack and they see a moose come by. The wolves cluster and come from all directions and they get the moose. Now let’s say the wolves were not travelling in a pack, they were traveling in a straight little line and that moose comes by. The wolves come from one direction and the moose reaches safety in the water and swims to the other side. The wolves won’t have any dinner that time.
When wolves run, it is called a marathon. They run for miles and miles each day almost without stopping. Wow! You would think that the wolves would never have a break! But they do. They rest when they eat and come back to their den to sleep.
Wolves are able to breed at 9-10 months old. Wolves can adopt other wolf babies when they alloparent. When wolf babies are just born, they are blind, helpless and have almost no sense of smell. They start to open up their eyes when they are between 11 and 15 days even though their eyesight is very faint. When they reach 12 weeks, they start to join the pack even though they don’t participate.
Whenever wolf packs are being spied by other animals, they move to a different den. Wolves find dens anywhere: in hollow river banks, or even other animal’s dens. When the wolves are cubs, the mother always stays with them in the den so that the cubs do not get hurt or even eaten. The mother has to be very protective.
When wolves show how they feel they use their body. For example, when a wolf wants to show that it is offended, it puts its ears and tail down. When a wolf wants to show that it is playful, it rolls on it’s back and kicks its feet in the air.
I love wolves. I think that when they howl, they sound beautiful. I think wolves are pretty.

You see a panda at the Beijing Zoo in China. It came right towards you and is analyzing you. Awesome! That was my experience when I went the zoo. I think that you know what pandas are, and probably you have seen pictures of them, but have you ever wondered about the facts about pandas? Have you ever seen a real panda?
Hi, it’s me again, Brecklyn. I am going to talk about pandas. Pandas seem so cute and cuddly. Pandas are one of the most popular animals in the world! Pandas live in the cold, mountainous bamboo forests in China. The Panda’s thick fur helps them keep warm in the cold snowy mountains. The panda’s fur actually has three layers. The first layer is the black and white pattern that you can see. The second is pink, the inside one. The third one is the skin. Have you ever heard of pink fur!?
Pandas were endangered until last week. There were only 2060 pandas left. Pandas were endangered because their habitat, bamboo forests, were cut down by people. They were also endangered because people used to shoot them for their fur. China said that it is illegal for people to keep hurting the pandas. Zoos are trying to increase the population of the pandas. Humans found the first panda on November 9, 1927. Ming-Ming was the first panda born in captivity. She was born in the Beijing Zoo in China.
Scientists are still trying to figure out about pandas so that they can save the pandas. It is hard to find out about pandas because of their habitat and what people did to the pandas. Pandas are still a mystery to the world.
Pandas eat about 10-20 kg (20-40 lb) of bamboo in one day. That is a lot! Pandas spend more of their time eating than playing. Even though pandas seem to be carnivores, pandas only eat bamboo. The only way pandas eat meat is if they are in captivity. In zoos, pandas are fed yams and ham.
Pandas have babies at 4-8 years old. When Panda cubs are newborns, they are very tiny, hairless, and weigh 85-140 grams. When a panda is 7 months old, they weigh 20 pounds and can already climb trees. Also, when cubs are born, the father leaves the mother panda with the cubs. Pandas give birth mostly to twins. Usually, only one will survive in the wild. Panda mothers choose the stronger of the twins, leaving the younger one alone thinking that she does not have enough milk to feed both of her cubs.
Panda in Chinese is dà xióng maõ, which means “big bear cat”. There are more pandas being born at the Beijing zoo than in the wild. I remember when I went to the Beijing Zoo in China. I remember seeing the cute rolly-poly pandas in the zoo. The pandas were my favorite part of the zoo.
In the past, pandas have been thought of as rare and noble creatures. The red panda was actually the first panda found. The giant panda was discovered 48 years later. The Empress Dowagner Bo had a panda skull in her vault when she died. Sima Xiangru wrote that the panda was the most treasured animal in the Emperor's garden of exotic animals. The grandson of Emperor Taizong of Tang gave Japan two pandas and panda skin as a sign of goodwill. Even today pandas are popular creatures. Panda toys are one of the most popular toys.
Do you want to hear a panda legend now? Here it is: Zouou is a creature, a righteous animal. These were thought of as fierce as a tiger but vegetarian. It is described in some books as “white tiger with black stripes”. I guess that this is a panda. What do you think?
Adult pandas are 1.2 to 1.9 m in length. Pandas have black fur on its ears, around its eyes, nose, legs, arms, and shoulders. The rest is white. Pandas seem to be gentle even though it has been caught to be attacking people. The panda probably does not mean to be aggressive. It probably just does it because it thinks that it is going to get hurt. In zoos when people give the pandas toys, even the strongest toys are no match for the panda.
To help pandas eat bamboo they have “thumbs”. The panda’s “thumb” is not really a thumb at all! It is really just a large wrist bone called a radial sesamoid. A panda does not wrap its thumb around the bamboo like we hold a pencil. It actually wraps its five fingers around the bamboo. It puts the radial sesamoid forward to jam the fingers across the bamboo. It is very hard to break bamboo even with an ax! Pandas can break and eat bamboo because they have very wide, tall, and thick teeth. Pandas also get two sets of teeth like humans: the baby teeth and the adult teeth. Unlike humans, pandas have 42 teeth.
Pandas, just like cats, have slits in their eyes to protect them from the sun. Do you remember me talking about Mr. Lover having the slits in his eyes?
I want to be a vet when I grow up. I want to invent the I.A.C. which means International Animal Center. I am going to help animals all over the world. I am going to put centers everywhere in the world. I am also going to volunteer at places that are already there. I think that the first animal that I am going to help is the pandas in China. Some of the animals will be in cages, and some of them will be in the place where the animals are going to exercise. Each animal will have what they need, and some things that they want.
Pandas are smart, fun, creative, and beautiful animals. I just love pandas. I love how they act and play. I hope you learned a lot that time, and I hope you will see the pandas in one of the zoos in China. That is all for now!

I have a pet cat, and his name is Mr. Lover. Mr. Lover is a domestic, shorthair, indoor, tom tabby cat. Mr. Lover is striped black and grey. Mr. Lover is Chinese because he says “Mao”, and in Chinese mao means “cat”.
Mommy and Daddy got Mr. Lover in June 2004 when they got back from their honeymoon. When they went to a pet store, a lady held out a kitten for them. He turned out to be Mr. Lover. Mr. Lover actually chose Daddy instead of Daddy choosing him because Mr. Lover reached out for Daddy.
Every morning, Mr. Lover does his morning exercises and runs around the house pouncing at everything that goes past him. Mr. Lover loves lying next to the window. He likes looking outside and basking in the sun.
One time, he was stretching on the windows when the windows opened up! Mr. Lover fell beside the couch! After that happened, sometimes it looks like he thinks that the house is attacking him. He goes around the house with eyes alert, tail up, and looking like he is expecting something. He goes around the house smelling all the furniture and everything.
Mr. Lover plays with Daddy in the morning before breakfast in the rocking chair when Daddy holds out his hand and disturbs Mr. Lover. Mr. Lover tries to bite Daddy when he does that. Whenever someone cries or yells, Mr. Lover comes to whoever is making noise. He tells Mommy or Daddy about it like he wants one of them to do something about it. We used to chase Mr. Lover around the house until Mr. Lover found a safe place underneath Mommy and Daddy’s bed.
When Grace was born, Mr. Lover was the announcement. He had a bib on that said “Mommy says ‘we have to make room for a real baby now’” Mr. Lover sometimes sleeps on Grace's bunk bed and eats her hair. When Grace is asleep, she kicks Mr. Lover and he bites her. When Grace gets up sometimes she has bite marks on her. One time it was on her nose!
I like cats, but Mr. Lover is my favorite one. I do not know why other cats are not the same as Mr. Lover. I love Mr. Lover. He is the best, most playful, and funniest cat in the world.
