Cute and not so cute

Yes, this is a picture of a picture of a big old slug hanging upside down from my hose the other day. It looked so funny I just had to snap its picture. It didn't turn out - not that slug pictures ever look good anyway :0)! I am convinced that slugs came after Man sinned in the garden of Eden. They serve no purpose (other than once in a while being mildly amusing early in the morning to an overtired Mom) All they do is eat tender veggie and flower starts - not even weeds! Have you ever seen a weed with slug bites - I haven't!!! Plus they are slimey - anything with slime had to come after!! Anything with slime or eight legs - they both are creepy!! I know some things with eight legs do good - like eat things with six legs - but still - creepy!!!

Okay, to counteract the picture of the slug:

Baby in a basket:

Esther loved being carried around this way - and Ruthie loved doing it!

Ruthie has a dance recital tonight. The tradition for Irish dance is for the girls to have curly hair. This presents a big challenge for my daughter (no hair straightening products will ever be needed by her :0)!!!) We have to begin the hair curling process at least 24 hours ahead of time.

Dance pictures will come soon!!

your'e right, the baby is much cuter than the slug. Have a great time at the dance recital. We still have 2 more weeks of piano lessons, and the recital is the 26th. I keep telling myself, just a few more weeks, that's all you have to do. I am getting lazy i think.

At least the slug was only on the hose. Around here we find them in the pockets of our boys!!!

Slimy slug? Definitely after the fall!! Baby in basket?? One of God's greatest blessings!! Could that little one be any cuter?? I don't think so!! What a great sis to play like that!!

Have a joyful weekend, gal!!
