Our newest addition . . .

I hope that my children never ask for a cat, dog, horse, etc. because I really don't think I will have the will power to say no! Thus leads me to the introduction of Flicka the Fish, the newest member of the Thomas family. Let me take you back a step - Jacob has had a new fascination with fish. Whether it be the fish at the Bass Pro shop or the fish at the zoo, he loves to watch them and pretty much throws a fit every time we have to say bye bye to them. At first I was not keen of the idea of something else to take care of, clean, feed, blah, blah, blah. But then the soft spot in my heart took over and I thought that a small fish bowl wouldn't be that bad. So today I purchased Flicka. Jacob and Aidan were super surprised to see her when they woke up from their nap. It was very fun to watch their excitement. I am so glad that monkeys and tigers aren't legal, otherwise we might have the beginnings of a zoo in our backyard,

Your boys are ACORABLE!! I love it. And I LOVE Flika!! I'm sure one of these day s we'll have to invest in a fish also, but for now Keat is content watching his "fish" on TV!!:) Do you guys think you'll be able to make it on Sat? I told Riss that if your hubby's didn't want to go, you could always just carpool!! NEways, hope you can make it!

The pictures of the boys looking at Flicka are so cute! I'm also impressed that you are taking a photography class. I have toyed with the idea as well as I have discovered that I really enjoy taking fun pics of the girls...they on the other hand get tired of the camera in their face : )
