Reptile Show - Leap Frog

Natalia (5 years old): "Mom, Look at them, are they playing leap frog?"
Me: "Why, yes...yes, they are!"

LOL :) Yeah, I'm not ready for that talk yet! We went to a reptile show over at Exhibition Park in Halifax on Saturday held by Ray's Reptile Farm from Ottawa, Ontario. The girls were super excited as they got to see all sorts of things like Iguanas, Crocodiles, Pythons, Boa Constrictors, Anacondas, Owls, lots of Tortoises, etc. Yes, my little princesses love reptiles and they even had to touch them I constantly pushed hand sanitizer on them, that I keep in my purse at all times! I've heard that reptiles are carriers of salmonella. I'm not sure if that's true, but I didn't want to risk them getting sick. I'm assuming there's some truth to it, as they also had two tables with several bottles of hand sanitizer on them and signs everywhere telling you to wash your hands after touching the reptiles. Anyway, just thought I'd share this funny picture with you! :)

So, we had a lot of freezing rain last night, so school is cancelled AGAIN today! I think that makes 9 school cancellations so far this winter. Seems like a lot. Anyway, that means I'm home with the kids, which would be a nice break from routine, but it's on the day that I'm supposed to start a new contract position. Oh well, thankfully they're fine with me starting tomorrow instead.

I probably won't get in much crafty time today, seems hard when the kids are around, cause they want to get into everything! It's much easier to do after they go to bed for the night. Instead, I think I'll clean their closets, I job that I despise, but nonetheless has to be done! Their way of thinking for cleaning their room is to throw everything in their closets or under the bed...out of sight, out of mind, I guess! We cleaned under their beds a few days ago, but, seeing as I can hardly close their closet doors, I think it's time to make the plunge in there! lol :)

I'll be back tonight with a creation. I'll probably try the new Mojo Monday sketch challenge for this week. It's a nice sketch. Stay tuned...

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

lol Too funny Julie! Your daughter cracked me up. I am SO going to use that line next time we witness a...umm...animal coupling.
Clean your closets? on a day off? NO WAY. Well, I'm not one to talk I guess,
I'm home with my oldest today and we are doing dishes together.

HI Julie! we missed the Reptile show, we had all intentions of going but .. stuff came up ;)
I am glad you guys got to see it! I saw some photos on facebooks of other moms and their kids at the show and it looked like it would have been a lot of fun to see! hey those guys, yes it might have been those two .. used to live in the roof tops of the houses in my native city in Nicaragua, you would hear their claws as they ran on the roof tops, that always scared me and thrilled me, I would run outside to try to catch a glimpse of one of them. ;)
