Five little finger puppet friends, a butterfly, a bumble bee,
a blue bird, a daisy and, of course, a ladybug.
Tessa has always had such an amazing imagination. My mom jokes that if Tessa is playing in the other room, there's no way to be sure if she's alone or having a party.
She also has a wonderfully tender heart. Often she talks to me about Lucy and how she wishes her cousin were here on Earth with us. No bug collection is complete without our ladybug.
I was going to make just a plain old bag for the bugs,
but then I had the idea to make a tree.
I can't wait for T's birthday.
