Ringling Bros. Circus

This past Friday we took Carter to the circus. We all had a great time. The ring is much smaller than both Chris & I remembered but I bet it was huge to Carter.

A little update on our eggs. They are not twins but quadruples!!!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009


Our little eggy twins have become so fascinating to me. So I've done a little research. They are called House Finches.

Fun Facts about the House Finch

  • The House Finch originated in Mexico and in the 1940's was turned out in Long Island, NY
  • The red color of the male House Finch comes from pigments that it gets in his food during molt.
  • The more pigment of food the redder the male.
  • Females prefer to mate with the reddest male they can find, perhaps assuring that they get a capable male who can find enough food to feed the little babies.

Kind of weird that I researched my eggs. I just wanted to know what we were in store for.

Introducing the soon to be newest members of our family. Today Grandma (Chris' mom) was showing our house and discovered that in my hanging basket at our front door was a baby bird egg. By the time Carter & I got home there were 2. Yeah! I'm really excited about getting to share this experience with Carter. It's perfect timing since Easter was just a couple of day ago and eggs are on his mind.

And yes we are going to sell our house. So far Chris hasn't put a sign in the yard. I really don't want one there anyways. I'm sad about it. This is not our house but our home. Carter had all of his first here. This is the house we brought him home too. It has great sentimental value to me. I know we will always have our memories but I love my house. The good news is that we are upgrading. Are plans are to build a new, bigger house just up the street. I'm honestly excited about the new house. It will be in a cul de sac, which will be better for Carter to ride his bike. Right now we have a creek behind our house and all of our toys roll into it and are lost forever. So good bye creek.

Stayed tuned to see how are little birdies are doing!!!

So Daddy has been gone all week but Carter & I have great fun. When Chris got home he gave Carter a present, his first tattoo. Of course it was of a WT buffalo. So last night before bed Carter was inked! The first picture (they are out of order again b/c I can't ever download them right!) is of Carter flexing his muscle to see what the buffalo would look like.
