We have ducks!

After buying all the supplies yesterday, but no ducks because I wasn't willing to get six, my husband stopped on his way home and ended up getting six anyway. He's such a softie. :roll: Anyway, here they are. The girls have named them all and can somehow tell them apart. I only know the two big ones are Splish and Splash.



You guys were right, they are a hoot to watch!

Aww, they are so adorable!
Although by the pictures I have no clue how your daughters tell them apart.

Thanks, PH! They sure have been fun and I can't believe how much they've grown in just a week. We've been putting them in the tub a couple of times a day to swim around and I could just watch them forever. My oldest says she can tell them apart by the markings on their faces.

They are GREAT Jen!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Thanks everyone! They've been going outside now during the day and we bring them in at night. My girls are loving them, especially my oldest. I must admit, I'm quite fond of them, too. I've got more pictures to show, but our computer crashed so I've been going to the library once a day to get caught up on "online" stuff until we get it fixed.

BTW, Nicole, I LOVE your avatar!

Yes, we'll be getting them a kiddie pool. They've already outgrown the cat litter pan I've been using for their water. They grow so darn fast!
