All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Yep- that's a snake!

I was headed to take a shower. I had gone into my room, and then back into the kitchen, and just as I turned around I saw something move on the floor. I looked, and was like "wow!
That sure is a big worm!"
Then I realized that this "worm" was a snake!! A baby snake!!
I wanted the kids to see it, so I found a mason jar, and got a long wooden spoon. I laid the jar down, and got brave... I got closer to the snake with the spoon, and it's actually hissed at me and kinda lunged towards me. I quickly got it into the jar and closed the lid.
I left the snake on the kitchen counter so the kids could see it when they got home from school. Lauren told me it was a copperhead. It's now outside.
Haven't seen any other snakes... yet!
