Mommy, can you come here for a sec...?

Grammie, do not look at any more pics please. We love you...we want you to come back and visit us...Please turn away now...

Told ya...
Unlike her Grammie, Girl Child is not deathly afraid and paralyzed with fear by serpents.

" It was just a Little Guy under the garbage can."

When I asked her if it scared her, she replied, "Nah. I jumped back a little...landed on my bum...jumped up real fast...you know, in case...but naa, I wasn't too scared. It's just a Little Guy..." (I was trying my hardest to keep the knowing smile off my face.)
This was the brave Boy Child's stance on the situation...

and Girl Child's enjoyment of Boy Child's...

bravery.

"C'mon Brother...it's just a Little Guy..."

Notice her stick is empty. She tossed it at him.

He grew weary of the taunting. So this is Bravery in all it's Glory.

With eyes open...but, still...

glued to the snake. He would not take his eyes off it for a split second.

...until he'd again heard enough female taunting and cackling...

They so wore the thing out. Now, he's proud with a capital P.

Show off.

Love Note to my Big Shooter: Thank you for the giggles and laughs you always provide. Our sides hurt from the evening.

It's a garter snake! What a cutie pie! I've owned them as pets. In fact, had one while at ORU and wore it all over campus. It curled up in my hair, loving the sun. Did you keep it?

P.S. You know I don't ask you to do much...but will you please go see the movie "Fireproof" this weekend. Google Fireproof and you can see previews. It is the BEST movie I have seen in years, if not ever. Please go. Love, Soul Sis
