Velveteen Rabbits...

It looks like we're not the only ones giving a second chance to cherished toys from childhood. Rob, a long-time friend from Hope Mills and Boone, wrote this beautiful post about passing along a piece of himself to his daughter: Horsey rides again!

Here are just a few of our treasures that have found a new life after more than twenty-five years of dust, dirt, and dreams.

"Mom, I can't believe you still have trouble with this thing....I'm only 2 and I've already got it figured out."

"Talk about endless fun! First it was fun to look at the pictures and throw around!....

Now there's words too! How cool! A Story!"


"Yes, I'm totally cute in this little red rocking chair. Now how about turning it the other way so I can watch some Dora on t.v.?"




"Did someone ask for a Superhero?














Never fear! My reversible cape allows me act as Superman OR Batman!"

Hee-hee .. I visited my dad recently. We didn't bring many toys for Gabby, so my stepmom soomehow found that same little shapes-in-a-ball toy Abigael has. It was my brother's. Course, he's a college sophomore now, so I don't think he minded.

Shouldn't that be Supergirl and Batgirl? All my love!
