πŸŽ‰ Have a Ducky New Year πŸŽ‰

It is with enormous pride that Drake and Sol announce the arrival of their son, Trueno!

Although it took the ceramic egg 2 years to hatch, Drake used the time to finish Chocolatier College.

Now, Sol looks on with pride at the new Chocolate Shop that Drake has built.

Of Course, Drake had some help from his son, Trueno!

Lluvia is in love with her brother! Here is the official photo of them, for the family album!

    1. Yahoo!!!!

      Your art was perfect for this photo shoot!
      The family just keeps growing!
      Ducky New Year to you, dear Marina!

        and may the Ducky family bring happiness to all!!! πŸ’πŸ¦†πŸ£πŸ””βœ¨πŸŒŸ

    2. Thank you very much Marina, Drake is so proud to show your art in his new chocolatier, it is perfect for such a special day, I think your art will bring us good luck, starting a new business in a city like Toronto should not be easy … and when you are an emigrant duck of Spanish origins … even more difficult … anyway πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
      Happy New Year dear friend !!!

      1. Ah, Drake has nothing to fear or worry about as he and his family have so many fans and people who love them and take care of them, they’ll be fine! My Atoms were really honored to pose with them on such a great occasion!
        Thank you, my dearest BelΓ©n. A very Happy 2021 and in good health!
        Many many hugs and love!

    1. I just adore these ducks, and the artist who created them!
      Im so glad you got to see them! 2021 has to be better than 2020!
      Best to you & yours.
      Will be by later or tomorrow for a visit!

  6. Aww, this duck family is so adorable, Resa, and Marina’s artwork is fantastic. You’re the best and wishing you a delightfully ducky new year! Cheers and hugs! πŸ₯°πŸ’“πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

  7. Besides being a great artist and good friend, you are the best mom of ducks I have ever known, Drake and Sol are so elegant … Lluvia and Trueno are so healthy and strong … they all seem very happy, thanks Resa, you are the best!!
    Now that I see the father and son together I am amazed at how the same they are, the egg made us wait but, I think, the result is very good.
    I think they are going to have a great fortune with their new business, these are good times for chocolate, we all need a sweeter world.
    Drake always says: “everything seems easier when you have a big piece of chocolate” πŸ˜‰
    Happy New Year Resa, Kisses!!!!

    1. Thank you dear BelΓ©n!
      Although I could argue and say YOU are the best!
      I just adore our Family of Ducks!
      Trueno looks just like Drake! I imagine Drake looked like Trueno when he was young, and that Trueno will grow up to look just like Drake.
      I am so very happy you came to see the post!
      You have made a very Happy New Year for me!

      Feliz aΓ±o nuevo

    Wishing every day of the new year to be filled with success, happiness, and prosperity for you. Happy New Year.

    1. You too, stay safe and creative. Are you in a lockdown? We are 5 weeks into an 8 week lockdown. Yet, the numbers just get worse and worse. I have a feeling this lockdown thing is going to last until March. XOXOXO

      1. I think lockdowns and curfews will only deepen around some parts of the world as they suffer from increased infection rates due to the holiday shopping and get-togethers. The same lessons as we learned over the summer + now there are mutations.
        Keep safe and well xXx
