He has been in our family for years. My Dad bought him for my Gram decades and decades ago, and he used to live in my Gram's garden when I was little. I have always loved this statue (somewhere there is a picture of two year old me hugging him and giving him a peck on the cheek). When my Gram passed away, David came home to my Mom's house, and when Alli was about two, I was able to snap a picture that mirrored the one of me hugging David (she has always loved him too). When I bought my house, my Mom gave David to me. It has become a tradition that we dress the statue up for holidays. It started as a joke one fourth of July when I put a red, white, and blue ribboned hair tie around his neck like a tie. He looked very festive, so when Halloween rolled around, I got him a little witch hat. And from that, our little tradition was born. So here is our statue of David, sporting his little Pilgrim hat, wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
