What were we thinking??

We had a moment of weakness.  Maybe it's the lack of sleep or the cold winter months going to our brains.  In the midst of all the sickness in our house we have added 4 more members to the family. 
It all started when Emma wanted a fish.  Seems innocent enough, right?  Wrong!  Next Olivia wants a fish, which somehow turned into Isaiah wanting a snake.  Unfortunately for him my mother-in-law is deathly afraid of snakes and would refuse to come inside the house if we got one.  So he turned his attention to acquiring a a bearded dragon.  After much research we realized that a bearded dragon needs a lot more care and attention than we were ready for.  So we were on the hunt again for a suitable pet for Isaiah.  We went to both Pet Food Centers, Petsmart, and then finally to Harp's Pets before he found the deal he was looking for.  They had a sale on two steppe runners with a cage, light, cave and water bowl already included.  The only care they need is water and crickets, and to clean their cage regularly.  He was sold!!

And so now we have 2 parents, 4 children, 1 dog, 2 fish, and 2 steppe runners.  Who knows, next it may be chickens!!  (Not kidding, I've been wanting chickens for a long time now!!!)

Please excuse the mess in the background.  We are in the middle of turning our dining room into a school room.
