D-Day 2012.....

Wow, it's been four years since Dillon came home. We brought home a baby and now have a very active little boy! As crazy as life can be with Dillon we love him and wouldn't trade him for the world!!!

Dillon's new bookshelf.....

After Christmas we, ok I, decided to clean out some books. We still had "baby" books. We took all of the books that the girls didn't read anymore from their rooms upstairs and brought them downstairs. Needless to say Dillon isn't allowed upstairs unless the girls "invite" him. Anyway we had lots of books that were perfect for Dillon....just nowhere to put them. So I decided on a bookshelf in Dillon's room, above his bed. Darr was so happy to build a shelf! I painted it and stacked all the books on it. It came out perfect! I am working on adding little cars along the bottom of the shelf keeping with the car theme in his room.

Jaggar's new friends.....

About a week before Christmas, when all the shopping had been done, Hannah announced she wanted a hermit crab. Typical.

So, even though I was NOT going to buy one, I knew she could get one with some gift cards. December 26 we loaded up and headed to Pet Smart.
She found the one....Hermie. We brought him home, planning on using a small fish tank we had for his new home.
Hermie really went crazy when I took him from his container and put him in the tank.
Jaggar was so excited. He loved his new friend!
Here is Hermie, getting a drink.....or something.
Hannah did so much research about hermit crabs. I did none.
A good friend of mine has some and she said they basically did nothing.

Based on Hermie's actions I wasn't so sure.
Jaggar wasn't either.
Hermie eventually settled down, but did trash his tank. I realized that Hermie probably needed a bigger tank. Chloe realized that she wanted one also. Back to Pet Smart....
Home with a bigger tank, more supplies and Eugene. Eugene never acted like Hermie. Now they both do nothing. Jaggar is really bored with his new friends. He does like to sit on top of the tank though.
