New additions to the fam...

Saturday night we went to the local carnival. For the record let me just say that "carny's" scare me. Why do they all look like convicts?

Anywho... We won a "FREE" fish. Viv instantly fell in love with it and Brad and couldn't say no. Oh, are we in for it as she gets older and her wants become bigger and more expensive... "Daddy, I WANT the BMW, please." Can you say SUCKER?!?

Before I knew what hit me the carny was handing me a fish. Viv named the fish right away so at that point I was totally sucked in. How could I say no to an animal with a name?


"Nemo's" first night at our house

Sunday morning we went to the pet store to get a tank and lots of other fishy goodies. Viv picked out the plants and rocks. Blue of course.. her signature color (said in a Southern accent for the Steel Magnolia fans) and ended up getting "Nemo" a friend so he wasn't lonely. Viv named the new fish "Teeny-Tiny". How cute is that?

Vivi LOVES her fish and wanted me to post these pictures so everyone could see her fishy friends in their new digs.





I took lots of pics of Viv's fish.. you know just in case one of them needs to be "replaced" due to unforseen circumstances.

NEVER DO THAT TO ME AGAIN!!!

I saw New additions to the fam... and immediately my heart started racing!!! My blood pressure spiked- I started getting a migraine! Scare me half to death!

On a happier note- Yay for Viv!! I'm happy for her that she now has two new fishies! I once had a carnival fish that lived for seven years- much longer than any of my store bough fish! Good luck!

The look of innocence is priceless in your top picture. You really are in for it!

Yeah, I'd say you are in trouble in a few years if she already has her daddy firmly wrapped around her finger.

I'd like to see how fish ownership goes for you. My daughter Miss Pink wants a fish, and I told her we'd think about it. You are smart to take the pictures!

Just be sure to map out your fastest route to the local pet store.Fish are tricky, but kids do love 'em!
Love the bedroom in the backround, and of course the kid is super cute.
Come and visit on the playground. found you from Philly mom bloggers.

I would love to get Brayden a fish but Ben said no...so that just means that I will put off getting one for a couple of months and then go out and get one without asking first! I can't be expected to remember his answer from months ago...

Knowing Viv and her love of animals this does not suprise me. I am just waiting for the post that she got a Lizard like her Uncle.

No REPTILES! I have to draw the line somewhere.

Is this your T13? Just wondering.

She's come to the other side. The one that LOVES animals. Any animal. Just wait when you have to explain why an elephant can not live in the backyard!
