Aeries spends the night

Aeries had a full weekend (and so did we). We went to Grandma Rose and Grandpa Daryl's house last night for dinner and lots of playtime with them.

This morning Aeries went to her first Sunday morning fellowship meeting! She was simply marvelous... she didn't make a PEEP. All dressed in pink she sat on my lap and snuggled into me the whole meeting. In fact she fell sound asleep about half way through. I was SO proud of her.

Here's a few shots from yesterday and last weekend too. She's growing like a weed. She says 'hi', 'yay', and 'kitty'. She eats most all of the baby foods, but today I tried mixed vegetables and she refused to eat it... she pursed her lips together as tight as she could. It was comical.
The latest thing she's been doing is sticking her tongue out when she's concentrating on something. It's adorable.

Conner Takes a Trip to the Reptile Zoo

Heading into the Reptile Zoo. A nice warm way to spend part of a cold rainy day.

Don't remember what this was called but it was huge, red, and had a triangle-shaped head.

Two or three pythons all snuggled up together.
Awwww, how sweet!

The rattlesnakes always fascinate me. This Diamondback must've been 6 inches thick in the middle. It was feeding day so they were very active and aware of their surroundings.

"Hi Bob."
"Hi Bill."
"How's it goin over there?"
"Oh fine. How's it goin over there?"
"Fine. Same thing, different day."
"Man, I heard that."

Albino Alligator. A very bored Albino Alligator.

Okay, so this thing gave me the creeps.

Kissin' the Cayman.

Conner checking out the King Snake condos.

Snapping turtle. This guy looked like he'd love it if somebody stuck their hand in there. He was at least 30 inches across. I think you get extra ugly points when you have algae growing on your face.

A Springtime Teaser

Yesterday was gorgeous. It made us look forward to spring. Today it's back to the cold and the rain. But that's ok, we like that too. It is only January after all.

LOL Kitty

OK, so there's these things called LOL Kittys. There are LOL Bunnys, LOL Walruses, LOL Mice, etc etc etc. Anyway, what you do is get a picture of a cat, or bunny, or walrus, - normally whichever animal the web site features - and you stick on a caption to make it funny. Remember that animals don't spell very well and have very poor grammar.

You can make your own from scratch, use somebody else's picture, or just read what other people create. We've created a few but I guess they've never thought any of ours were good enough to put up for a vote (1-5 cheezburgers). One of them is over on the left and it features our very own Lily and Scooter ("HALP").

The site we always check out is (because cats love cheezburgers). We keep our favorites for a screensaver. Here are a few of them....
