baby snake.

Corey came home with a surprise on Thursday.
As soon as a I saw the plastic cup, I had a feeling I wasn't going to appreciate this as much as the kids.
I was right...

I admit... this was freaking me out a little bit.

I get shivers just looking at this picture.

Lawson loved the snake.

At one point, he was treating it like the tiny little rubber snakes they got from Miss Amy... stretching him out from head to tail.
(I did feel kind of sorry for the thing at that point.)

Sophie really wanted to go show it to Megan and Annie.
"Megan's gonna love it!"

The crazy thing?
She did love it!
Annie loved touching it, too.
But 2 minutes later she starts screaming and jumping all around.
There was an ant on her. :)

Talby let it get way too close to her face.
Freaking me out again.

It could have been worse, though.
Daddy could have brought home something like this...

My camera (and my kids) wouldn't have been anywhere near this thing.
(If it was alive. It's not. But it still freaks me out.)

I'd rather have that little snake crawl on me than a roach. I hate cockroaches!! We have really huge tree roaches here in Texas. Eeeekk!! :( ~Jill
