Giraffe Laugh

I created this wise guy of a giraffe, as a Christmas gift for our sweet Mumsie. Mom is just the greatest--she has always loved and collected giraffes. She says because of her height she knows how they feel, and harbors great sympathy and love for them.

Mums is indeed a tall, large-boned woman, but she is willowy and graceful in her movements. To watch her working in the garden, with her customary grace is a joy. To see her green eyes sparkling with good humor, and to hear her contagious raucous laughter is to join in with her. I loved seeing how much she enjoyed this Giraffe Laugh.

Cute giraffe makes me giggle! I could just hug him but I also think s/he could do a swell razzz-berry!

Ah yes, mom has character, and so does this darling giraffe! I agree with Cheryl - this giraffe could do a swell razzzz-berry!

Is your mom as gentle as you? I would think so. Gentle and grace.

This giraffe is absolutely enchanting. I didn't know which place to comment, each of your blogs is inviting. I will be back with an angel story too.
