So as to no longer clog up Catie's beautiful blog with more pictures of snakes, I decided to start my own blog dedicated to snakes. I even made a video about it.

Come check it out

Warning: you will be weirded out.

Picture Day

We took a bunch of pictures of Bennett lately.
I just wanted to point out not only how cute this little boy is, but also how great a photographer Catie is.
Almost every picture on the blog is from her. Even the ones of herself.

Stands with a fist

Catie recently had me watch Dances with Wolves for the first time. It's nothing against Indians. I love Native Americans- always have. Pocahontas is easily my favorite Disney princess. It's just that for the past decade of my life, I've felt it best to avoid watching any movie with Kevin Costner. I must say however, it was a very good movie.
When I first heard the name "Stands with a Fist" though, I burst up laughing. But when this woman explained the origin of her name, I got to thinking, what would my name be if I lived in an Indian tribe?
So I looked up different names.

You have got to read some of these

Many are beautiful, others are... unfortunate. My favorite is probably Aponivi - "Where the wind blows down the gap"

We've Been Tagged

Our friends, the Webers, tagged us with the task to post 6 of our quirks. In ascending order, they are:

1) Don't know if this is a quirk, but Catie hates Madonna. It's so funny to hear her say it because she never says she hates anything.

2) Dave has to eat each item of food separately. He can't mix french fries and hamburger. It is french fries, then
hamburger. He can't even mix drink with other items. It is one at a time.

3) Catie must shop alone. Whether it's clothing, or groceries, she can't shop with anybody else.

4) Dave has to check the mailbox every hour on the hour while at home. It doesn't matter if we just got the mail or if it's July 4th or if it's Sunday.

5) Bennett is mesmerized by our front door handle. It's the way the light hits that fake gold paint.
6) Catie's least favorite chore is to put away the clothes after laundry. The laundry is washed, dried, and folded, then neatly placed on the bed until somebody else puts it away.

My baby's got sauce

Catie prepared a packed lunch for me the other day in my superman lunch box. In it was the usual peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a fruit of some sort, her daily love note, and some apple sauce.
I love apple sauce.

I got to thinking however, why is it that apple sauce is the only baby food to successfully transition over to adult food? Can you imagine being at a high class dinner, and someone orders the mashed peas?

As much as I like apple sauce, I'd really like a banana sauce, or a mango sauce. What is it that makes it socially unacceptable?

Spencer Coleman did inform me of this link

I'm going to do further research.
