all caught up...

Since we don't have a thing in the world to do (right) we decided to add 2 more mouths to feed and 2 more habitats to maintain.  Meet Bob and Braxton.  Yates learned to say cheese this weekend, so he and Stella are doing their best cheeses with their new pets.

Bob is the blue one.  He is Yates' new fish and we let him name his fish.  Braxton is the red one.  He is Stella's and she named her fish too.  Sorry Dara.  I kept asking her if she was sure about the name Braxton and she was positive about it.  Braxton it is. 
Michael asked me how we were going to handle the death of these fish... if we were going to have to rush out and replace the fish with stand ins.  Absolutely not!  Life lesson 101.  We had a good talk with Stella and Yates (like he cares) about taking good care of the fish and about how the fish would go to fish heaven if we did not take care of them.  They have both fed their fish several times now and its not too bad.  I am not excited about emptying out the fish poop water.  Oh well.

Yates (diaperless) and Daddy watering the new plants
We spent the whole day in the back yard today.  Michael planted about 7000 plants.  I did help, got dirty, muddy, even stepped in poop barefoot.  Fabulous.   I hope the plants all like their new homes, exposures, dirt and water and grow really pretty.  We want our thumbs to be green sooo bad.

Stella and I put a new adirondack chair together today.  She is good at screw-drivering.
