We provided the fish tank but didn't think it wise to include fish. He got enough PetSmart gift cards to buy about 100 fish, so no worries in that department. We also got him a solar system model kit. He's very into science lately and was really excited about it. Not so excited about the three additional fish tank filters I wrapped up for him. I was excited that he was kind to Henry during the opening frenzy.

Moon Sand and for coloring "planets". Really they all just wanted to play in the sand box or on the swingset. And the parents probably wanted to have an electric blanket because nobody thinks you're going to an outside party when it's 40 degrees. The Simpsons like to keep you on your toes!
This was David's cake for his sixth birthday party, which was a "space" theme. The rocket is made out of molded rice krispie treats. His flavor requests? Banana for the bottom tier and orange for the top. They were both great - the banana tastes like banana bread with frosting. He loved it!

I came into the kitchen today to find this:
Do girls do this? Can you tell what that is?
It's a snail. Sliming its way across my kitchen counter. He had a buddy too, but apparently the friend was a bit camera shy. David and Henry kept calling the snail Gary. You know, from Spongebob.
Do girls bring every critter they find inside when done playing in the back yard? I do not recall doing this myself.

This little monkey has been sick since roughly January. Yes, that's right. For two months. I'm so beyond frustrated with the situation. He has a consultation in April to have his tonsils removed. The child just cannot get better. He has had a fever since Thursday that will not go away. For the last two days it's been 103 or higher, never going below 102. He's Pitiful. With a capital P. I hate not being able to make him better!
This is our new sweet girl. We love her! I think someone may have been a bit rough with her at her last home, because she's a bit timid still. She's so, so sweet. She just wants to sit in your lap and snuggle. Don't try to walk her, because she freezes and acts like she you're leading her to a death chamber. We're working on that. . . .
