Snakes, why'd it have to be snakes?

Yes my nerdiness does absolutely extend into Indiana Jones territory, after all, he was also Han Solo. So the kids and I went to the ETHSA show, its a show for breeders of snakes lizards, and other reptiles. Fortunately for my kids, my phobia is not snakes. Its rodents, which makes me like snakes even more. We had a good time looking at all the different kinds. We are trying to do more "guy" things with John. The poor kid has had to live in pink and purple pony princess land his whole life and its about time we added a little testosterone to the family outings.

It was a little disconcerting how they store the snakes in the little cake boxes.... and the evil twin who lives in my head was thinking it would be fun to bring grandma (who is deathly afraid of snakes) a "snake cake". She would literally kill me though.

Oh and the puppy is growing and growing, we had to buy her a sweater since the weather has gotten cooler. Is that not the cutest thing ever? Poor thing can't keep herself warm. Wow is she an eater, I'm starting to think she has a tapeworm. She has discovered the fine art of annoying the cat, the cat is no longer speaking to us.

My thanksgiving update.. I got the whole list accomplished for today, and it nearly killed me. I painted the kitchen plus the rest of the list, the whole shabang. I would like to pat myself on the back, but I can't fully turn to the left after all that painting, I also can't bend over, or reach for anything above my shoulders and there is a nerve running down my left leg that I am VERY aware of right now. This is going to be a problem, because my list for tomorrow is even longer and it includes breaking out the steamcleaner to do all the carpets and we had a thanksgiving lunch we were supposed to attend. If I wake up all frozen, that is going to kill alot of those plans, and that would be a bummer because then I would spend the morning watching Martha Stewart, and we all know what happens when I watch Martha.....

We got Noah a Ball Python a few weeks ago. He was so excited; it looks just like the ones in the pic with John only a little smaller since he's still a baby. Looks like y'all had fun!

Snakes? YUCK! I'm so deathy scared of snakes.

The puppy looks amazing! I love the little pink sweater. Your kiddos look like they spoil her rotten.

Jennifer said...

the kids do spoil her absolutely rotten! And this really cute little white spot has begun forming on her lower lip, its too cute!

The little scamp has learned how to get out of that sweater in two seconds flat! then she shivers and whines, then I put her back in the sweater, then she takes it off..... rinse, repeat.... LOL
