Cards and Critters...oh my!

I'm a mom of two boys and I'm also the only girl in my family (with three older brothers). So, I've certainly had my share of "critters" in my life. Somehow boys and critters go 'hand in hand' (quite literally!). I think that may have to eventually become my scrapbook page title...but in the meantime the photos will have to do.

This is Mario - he's 10 years old. I can't believe how big he is getting! Mario was a 'micro-preemie' weighing in at just 1 pound 9 ounces. I like this photo of him holding a baby desert tortoise because I know how big that tortoise will someday become and it reminds me of where my son has come from and how much more he will still grow.

And this is Dakota - he's 7 years old. He is definately ALL boy - for his pets he has FOUR fire-bellied toads and this garter snake. He also loves to catch bugs and lizards (and is very good at it!)

Ok...and on to the DECK OF CARDS! Are you curious yet? I mean, really REALLY curious? Maybe this will quelch your curiousity!

My intention is to scrap 52 different things about me. The could be simple things (like favorite animal, color, quote, etc) or they may be juicier (like embarrassing moments). So you'll have to keep an eye out for new additions! You wouldn't want to miss the juicy ones!

Here's the first one I made...a nice simple topic!

All my life, my favorite animal has been the Panda Bear. No real reason - just because! I was a little disappointed when I went to the San Diego Zoo this summer for the first time and saw one in person. Boy, they don't DO much but lie there! But they are cute and I guess they are still my favorite animal! LOL.

Tomorrow I'll be starting to share some Christmas gift pictures. It won't be till evening (after I get home from my first day of work at the new job). So stay tuned!

The boys are adorable!! I don't know that I could deal with those kinds of critters. My 9 year-old loves toads and bugs most, and my 6 year-old mostly looks on.

I love your "52 things about me" idea. I look forward to them!
