Meet Marlin and Nemo



We celebrated Alexander's birthday today with his pirate party...no pictures from the party because were too busy trying to stay warm and dry...The kids had a ball with the treasure hunt and pinata and getting to be pirates for the afternoon. AND each of the kids got to take home a goldfish as their "loot" I suppose!!! So meet our newest family members...who are still alive at the time of this typing....Unlike Natalie, I did NOT rush out and buy them nice goldfish bowls and rocks and all this stuff...I guess I'm a pessimist...we'll see how long they last first.....(my sister Kristen is going to be SO mad when she reads this...) The boys are SO excited though!

Oh I hope Marlin and Nemo live. And such original names :) hehe We have had 2 betas since Benjamin was born..and they both have been named Georgie. I think he thinks all fish have that name. Anyway, they both have lived over a year...well, until my last trip. I came home to find Georgie the Second took a plummet down to the floor and dried to death :( I forgot to blog about that. Anyway, all that to say, Marlin and Nemo might live a lot longer than their mommy hopes.
