We are THAT Family
... you know the ones.
Is it more sweet or more hilarious? I don’t know. This was great!
I have a ground squirrel aggravating me to death… so, I’m not so sure how cute he is. He waits until I’m walking from my garage to scurry in front of me =(
Awwwww, *sniff* makes me think we didn’t do enough when we had our Squirrel out of the nest disaster of 2008. I just piled mulching materials on top of the grave site.
I can remember having funerals with my dad and little brother in the woods across from our house, for the dead rabbits and moles that our cat would kill and leave on our door step. I am now not a real animal lover, but yet I can recall leading us in singing Amazing Grace and reciting the 23rd Psalm for those poor dead rodents. Bless my dad for humming along when I know he must have been laughing on the inside!
Awe! Poor little guy, the flowers! What a touch! My kids did this once. They even found a cinder block to make a gravestone. We lost that tree with Hurricane Ivan and that’s the first thing they thought of (disturbing Squirrely’s resting place)!
Makes me feel bad for hitting the chicken that was trying to cross the road and then leaving him there on the other side.
Thanks to my huge orange ball of fluff I’ve had to create last minute make-shift caskets for more little creatures than I care to admit.
Your post makes me feel slightly remorseful for all the poor squirrel and chipmunk widows my cat is creating.
Wonderful… a funeral for a tree rat. As you can tell, I am known around town for my tremendous sense of compassion.
Aw, this makes me sad for the boy. Death is such a hard thing for any of us to understand. Dread the day I have to try and explain it to my girl.
Oh that is too funny! How great that his family supported his celebration of Fred!
Awww, what a sweet little boy!
The sweet kid is stupid, the squirrel deserved it!
That is pretty sweet. The baseball cap and puffy paint–I feel sad for him, while kind of chuckling at the same time!
In our last house, we had squirrels in the attic, so I really hate them. But that was kinda sweet making a memorial.
Kids seem to appreciate life more than adults do.
very sweet boy that was…and don’t you feel bad now.
I remember bringing home a dead squirrel to bury when I was a kid and my mom practically burning the clothes I had been wearing with a look of rabid terror in her eyes. Ahhhh – the memories! I really appreciate that kid’s efforts!
That is so sweet!
I hate squirrels.
However, this story is pretty cute.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
