When You Have Boys

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails, that's what little boys are made of.

Which makes them inclined to play with things like this:

Walker was in heaven this past Saturday when he was able to visit his friend Bowen's house. Bowen literally has a small pet store in his room including a snake, bearded dragon and a gecko. Not to mention the many fossils and bones he has gathered.

Of course, now Walker wants one of these (see below) from Santa Claus. I'm trying to convince him that Rock Band would be so much more fun. But I'm not sure I can be convincing enough.

He is kinda cool.


  1. There is just no way on God's green earth I could sleep knowing a reptile, especially one of the legless variety (if you know what I mean), is somewhere in my house. I have trouble just going to the bathroom in the middle of the night after seeing reports on the internet of visitors creeping their way through people's plumbing. :>)

    My vote would be for Rock Band, too! Good luck!

  2. Don't let him talk to Ryan about that bearded dragon! He has been "pest"ering me to get one for the past year - at 15 he still wants all the critters!!! He's had snakes, mice, hamsters, turtles...but then again, I begged my folks for an otter when I was his age - "it can live in the bathtub"!!!

  3. We couldn't be friends with Bowen anymore.

  4. eek! :) the old friends' house we went to on Sunday for a bday party had some lizards too! I was known, when I was little, for bringing frogs in the house in my pocket every now and then, saying Mom look at this, hahah :)

  5. HEHE! Love it! Having a little boy sounds like SO much fun!!!

    I hope I am blessed with a cutie like him one day!

  6. I was just telling Caitlyn how we used to catch granddaddy longlegs for fun... she refuses to believe it!

  7. WOW, those are cool! Owen is so uninterested in his beta fish and frogosphere...I'm just waiting for this phase to kick in - and so is Nate, who had an iguana in college. Good luck!

  8. Yikes!! I just had a baby boy 3 months ago and I'm scared for these times!! Im not a fan of anything creepy crawly!

  9. I can't even look at that picture of Walker!!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
