LOVED Christmas Presents
                 I love this - love!


Disclaimer:  The following pictures are included in the "Loved Christmas Presents" category because they are loved by the owner NOT by me...at all...not even a tiny bit!


Meet SCAR
Ethan wanted a snake this year sssooooo badly!  This long and creepy creature has been kept undercover at Pastor and Mrs. Lapiska's home for a few weeks.  -THANK YOU!-  After we unwrapped all our presents at home (and after Ethan was a little disappointed that he did NOT get his snake), we took Ethan over to the church basement where his real present had been delivered.  He was very surprised and so very happy!!





Scar is a ball python that we got from a breeder.  He has been very "friendly"- if you can use that word to describe a snake?!  He just kind of hangs out where ever Ethan puts him.  I am trying not to shudder at this new love of Ethan's and I'm hoping that I will calm down a bit (for the sake of everyone) soon.  Ethan sure loves him and the others are growing more fond of him every day.  
Next year, I'm thinking something fluffy and warm blooded like...a cat!

You're a great mom to let your little boy have a snake! I'm sure he'll remember it for a very long time!!
