Setting Yoda Free

Ok, so there is back story...

About a month or so ago my children found a baby snake at my moms house. The oldest, decided it was a perfectly sane pet. And what did we do about it? Bought a cage and many crickets. He named it Yoda. He loved him- kinda in that way Lenny loved the rabbit in 'Of Mice and Men'... not the good, safe, gentle love. So, mom limited the interaction to save her sanity and possibly the life of a little green gardner snake. That lasted a little while, however it got cold and Yoda began to psudo-hibernate. (If it goes into hibernation with temperatures not staying low enough the snakes metabolism wont slow enough and it will starve.) I didn't want that on my conscience! So, the catch and release program was installed. Here documents the release.

Tempus Fugit: Speed

The thought for today is: Speed.
The days that fly by, then blur into months, and then so quickly years are gone...

Yes, i'm feeling a tad bit sad at my lack of posts and documentation of my family and the changes we have experienced over the last season.

So to make up for that...

L. is so tall, talkative, active, funny, whiney, helpful, weighs in at 44lbs and eats all the time.
N. is so full of life, rowdy, animated, aggressive, cuddly, sweet and weighs in at 35 lbs and eats more than his brother.

To those who missed the announcement we are EXPECTING number #3. Gender to be announced at a later date.. Due mid-July. I'm feeling hormonal, nausea has subsided, tired all the time, ate a lot of cheese and milk first trimester, have had extreme headaches, and officially felt the baby move a week and half ago. Baby 3 is having a wee party in there at 18 weeks.

The last week of December was a little maddening for us, as Hubby decided sort of last minute to begin  Graduate school, Masters of Divinity program. He began classes the end of January and is currently in a land call syllabus shock.

The boys and I got badly needed hair cuts yesterday and I'm quite pleased with each new style!

So dear friends and family far and near, I shall do a better job at keeping updates posted here. hopefully.

I love my little cuddle bug, so very very much. And for all the times of laughter and cuteness I had to post this one (quite funny) picture of the intense nature we're fighting right now with our beloved 2 year old. Phew. Only 1 month to go until he turns 3! WOW

Part of the problem was he doesn't like being photographed. o_O
