In Loving Memory Of Bubba =(

I am so sad to say that one our crabs Bubba has died. We thought he was molting but he had that really stinky smell that meant only one thing. Melody is handling it well, she really adores her hermie crabs and we loved having him as a pet. So, here are some pictures of Bubba!!





Ordering Melody's School Photos

Got the proofs in for Melody's grade 2 pictures and they turned out great!! I decided to go with the bottom right pose, I just love the innocence in her eyes and her pretty smile. I can't wait to get them and make Melody a new frame for this year to put up on her school year wall.

So here is my little sweetie and just below is the picture I chose.

It's Just Another Manic Monday!!!



I thought it would be fun to start a weekly post where I can babble about the chaoticness that is my life. I'm going to try to do 1-2 of these per week.

Life has been chaotic this past week for our family. The kids and I are getting over a cold, Daniel seemed to miss out on it..... lucky him. On Thursday, Melody was in extreme pain and we took her into the walk in clinic where our doctor is and the poor little thing has a UTI. She's on antibiotics and it's really taking a toll on her body. She's tired, cranky, and somewhat cooperative most of the time.

I've been grieving a lot these past few weeks. I feel like I am stuck in a rut and am having a hard time keeping motivated to do things. I see my therapist this week so it will be good to get that little bit of extra support.

Halloween is this week and I have yet to get the decorations out. Atleast the kids have outfits and the chips are bought for handing out. It will be nice b/c my mom is coming up for Halloween this year and I'm looking forward to having her here. She is so wonderful with the children and it gives me a much needed break.

Can't think of much else to blog about... oh other than 2 of my crabs are definately molting (Ruby and Bubba are both in isolation tanks). Lola has been hiding for a few days now, so not sure if she is molting or not. The other two are happy little crabbies.

Have a great day everyone.

More Additions To Our Home

So we have a few more crabs that have been added to our house. Our crabitat is now called The Copacabana from the Barry Manilow song. Melody can't say that so she calls it the cocoa banana !!! LOL she's hilarious.

So the one on the bottom is Rico (from the song) and Monty is sitting on top of his shell (we love monty python humour!!)


This is Lola (from the song) and she is a purple pincher, the others are ecuadorian crabs b/c they have brown pinchers, she has a purple one.



We have a cork tree for them to climb on and here a couple pictures of them all hanging onto it.







Decided I would take some video of all of them on the wood. They're just neat and funny little creatures!
