What? She doesn't look like a squirrel to you - read on!
Before we left for our trip, I was looking through the DVD's trying to decide which few I wanted to bring in the car. I really wanted to bring one of the Clifford ones because it has multiple episodes on one disc, but could not fine one. Emily got a five disc set for Christmas last year - so where were all the Clifford movies? We also remembered that we could not find the Toy Story 2 DVD. Hmmmm....
We asked Emily where they were - no real answer. We asked Rachel where they were and she always pointed behind the TV. But, they weren't there. David absolutely scoured the Den and we had looked other places all over the house, but they could not be found. We did find one of the Clifford movies - but where were the other four?
So, I chose other movies and we went on our way. However, they were still missing. Another thing missing, was the Boo Boo Buddy from the freezer - it's amazing how much this little darling can help an owie! :) (Psychological perhaps?)
Several weeks have passed - a month I guess and then one morning when the ladies got up - Emily said, "Rachel put a lot of books in the middle." In the middle of what? She offered to show me.
We headed into their bedroom and Emily pointed behind the headboard of Rachel's bed. Yes, there were quite a few books behind there (a few of these were already on the floor, but you get the idea):
After pulling all of those out - we found:
Mmm hmm - well, now we know who is squirreling treasures away behind her bed. She must just think it is so fun to "deposit" things in this little slot:
We also found a princess cell phone a small pony toy and more books. Mystery solved - Rachel is the secret squirrel.
