“A long time ago  only a few short years ago…

in a galaxy far, far away…  in a backyard in Tennesee….

Lived a family of Foxes.
It all began with Mama Rennie and four cute, rambunctious, naughty, mischievous, kits-Ring ding, Osa, Effie, and Hulda.

 It was through their adventures right out the backdoor for the Budayr household, I watched them grow.The Fox Diaries

And be young, silly, and naughty….

It was a true gift to be witness and experience this, and from this my book The Fox Diaries: The Year the Foxes Came to Our Garden was born.

THEN, this past Spring, I found myself keeping a very large secret…….

Hulda (a kit from the first litter-now all grown up) came back to the old den, her family home, with her newborns. Yup….Generation #2 had taken up residence in the Budayr yard. Valarie and family had many moments with Hulda and the now very large litter of kits,  and the result is this amazing video. Not only is this delightful video a peek at the Fox mayhem that has ensued but a look into the continued joy that each Fox Spring brings.
