Two Turtle Dogs


Today was a day for creatures. (Above picture is typical of Hannah first thing in the morning. She is a collector and a packer. Note trophy in her bathrobe pocket. For no reason. Ball cap? Why not? Don't forget the doll's ball cap too! Broken necklace? A must have, apparently. A new day, a new combination of junk treasures to bring downstairs.)

Where was I? Oh yes. Creatures.

Our usually barren back yard has come to life.

Hannah found this in the sandbox:



The poor girl! Her only phobia is spiders (and their webs), and she manages to find a Black Widow!


There were three skinks by the door.

And Chris found this colorful box turtle.


At first Hazel didn't care at all...


But then the turtle started running...


And before I knew it, there were two turtle dogs. Sorry no pear tree.

LOL, picture of Hannah could easily be a picture of Adam some days. He comes up with some "interesting" things to wear, and he I swear has the same broken necklace (but it is green) that we can not part with!!!

Okay I didn't know you had black widows in Virginia, sorry but I will never be moving to your state no matter how cold it gets here in MN!! :) LOL

Oh Hannah I wished we lived closer. We could play with our Molly dolls together. My mom notes your entire ensemble is color coordinated. She likes that.
