Just call me a pet sitter.

Remember how we looked after Bailey, my brothers dog?

Well, he went home, and now we are looking after my sisters pet.

Meet Tashi. The Carpet Python. Secured in her tank in the garage. (hubby HATES snakes-every time summer rolls around,he gets all snake-paranoid whenever we go outside. I didn't tell him the neighbour told me they have had 3 extremely poisonous brown snakes in their yard)

Fatboy  was intrigued

and not scared at all. Expect more photos soon:)   (oh, like that HUGE bruise? that's what you get when you swing between the lounge and coffee table. That bruise is almost permanent, he always hits it again just as its going away. i swear he has had that bruise for 3 months)

So, new header picture! You like?I took 32 photos, that was the absolute best. (Im still not happy with it) Wanna see some outtakes?

I know I've been asked about my camera, I've got that in there!  If you do have a question, just write it in the comments and Ill answer! ( and can at least 1 person ask something, just so I dont feel like a total loser,hehe)

ARGH!!!! on the snake....I hate snakes but I hate spiders more!!

I'll ask a question.....how did you do the watermark on your photos...I think I can add one in Picasa or Photoshop but because I have no real time to sit & play...you can tell me & that will be quicker. Also what's your favourite lens & why??

Why did you start blogging, it's not really common here.......??

With five children what's your best ideas about dinners.....


There that's a good start

Oh I have tons of questions!

How on earth do you keep your sanity with five kids? :)

How do you shop for five (food, clothes, etc)?

What kind of meals do you make?

How many times a day do you cook? (dinner only, lunch and dinner, all three meals?)?

How do you and your husband find time to work on your marriage?

How long have you been seriously taking pictures?

What are your religious and political views???

OK OK you SO don't have to answer that last one! lol Just me being nosey! ha! :)

I pink puffy heart your new header!

Here's my question. What is your secret to a happy, healthy marriage? You have managed to beat all the odds staying married and having 5 children when starting at such a young age.

Love the new header and is your watermark new?

YUCK on the snake but great pics of it!

CailinMarie said...

I love your pictures! I have to say Bailey definitly wins out over the snake in my book! I LIKE the header, I like the balance, the colors, the kids faces, it is a good picture.
I'm with Kimber, how'd you do the watermark? I sometimes want to post artwork but don't want it "stolen"
I'd love to know what you "wish you'd known" especially with the oldest. My oldest is 11 and we are moving on to uncharted territory (well the oldest is ALWAYS uncharted territioty) but I can see the hormones beginning, just begining and oh dear.

LOVE the new header & watermark!

so here are my questions - when you're out in public, do people ever ask you if all the kids are yours? and then do they go on to say, "you do know what causes that, don't you?" and then do you think/say, "Uhh, no, I have no CLUE how I ended up w/all of these kids! They just started following me around!" (I usually go the smartass route, as you can tell..lol)

Did you plan your pregnancies? My hubby loves to tell people that we didn't plan any of ours, except the 2nd one...the rest just showed up..lol

You're a cool pet sitter-not many people would sit a snake!! Snakes don't bother me, but don't even ask me to LOOK at a spider. Nope. Not gonna do it! I'll have to think about some questions-and I'm cracking up at Melissa's comments-we get those questions all the time!! And we are usually sarcastic about it too! Are you seriously asking me that (or telling me that I 'certainly have my hands full!' in front of my kids?? We met a family the last time we were at Disney world with six kids, and we were having this same discussion and the dad said he usually tells people, 'If my kids acted like yours I probably would have stopped at 2 too!' LOVE THAT!!

Love the new header, I keep wanting to make a new one for my blog but that perfect picture is unattainable I think.
I'll be thinking of some questions, looks like you got your hands full of them right now!! I'll be back though.
