He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

A hippo and a duckling...

So I walked into the kitchen this evening and found this:

and then this:

Lest there be any confusion, yes, we have a sweet little puppy, and yes, she had plenty of water in her water dish right outside the door.  Before I had a chance to call the girls to find out who all the water was for, Naomi came rounding the corner with another pitcher full of water from the bathroom (she can't reach the kitchen sink) to pour into the big bowl.  "Naomi?" I say, "What are you doing, sweetie?".  Very matter-of- factly she replies, "Mommy, I have to get plenty of water for our new duckling and hippo."  Of course!  Our new duckling and hippo- how silly of me!  "Their names are Cherry and Esther," she continues (and why not- perfect names for our new pets...)

We're still waiting for the new arrivals.  I'll keep you posted...
