Our newest family member!

If you've followed my blog; you've read the story of Patches and Snowball! Well, it wasn't going to be long before we had another addition to our family..."it" arrived yesterday! We don't know yet if its a girl or a boy; but we'll find out this weekend. DH has a friend that used to raise snakes - eeeeekkkkkk - he helped us get Snowball and now he's helped us get STRIPES!!

Here's our newest member!

What do you think??? He's a Leopard Gecko; he's very - um - different looking. He's a pale yellow in color with stripes and his eyelids are blue. Strangest looking thing - LOL!!

Now here's a picture of Stripes and his proud owner!

Yeah, that gecko's cool; but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that little boy holding him!!! Doesn't he have killer eyes - they are a gorgeous blue color (click on the image to see a larger version).

So our fun of a new family member has begun. After church tonight we're headed to the pet store to get a few more things we need for him.

And in case you're curious...no, I don't hold Patches, Snowball OR Stripes! I allow them to have them, but they know the rules. :D

Hope you're having a great Saturday; we have had 2-3 inches of snow today. Thanks for peeking in; take care! ~M.

Congrats on your new addition. At least you don't have to change diapers, or take it for a walk, or potty train it. :-)
