I'm Finished!

And that's all I'm going to say about that. I'm patiently waiting for Jonathan to read the last few pages so we can discuss. I can't believe I just read the very last book!

Larry the Attack, Punk Ass, Butthole Camel

As many of you know our family is currently residing in the biggest house ever playing parents to three teenage children and getting well paid for it. I'll take some pics soon. Last night Mere and Ryan came over to eat and celebrate Rabbit. After supper we decided to crank the 4 wheeler and the mule (kind of like a rugged golf cart) and drove down to the barn. This family has several horses and a pet camel. Yes, you heard it right a camel named Larry. Well Larry is getting big (duh) and when I was feeding him treats and patting him he put his knee up on the edge of his stall like he was going to climb out. Jonathan decides it would be a good idea to let Larry out into the rodeo arena to frolic. That indeed was what Larry did. He ran around long legs flying and bucked and galloped like there was no tomorrow. It really was funny. Jonathan decided to get in on the action and play with him. By this time we were all out in the arena me, Mere, Laine, Bowen and Jonathan. That's when Larry lost it. He went over to Mere and leaned on her until she had to climb the fence with Bowen in her arms. Then Jonathan came over and Larry started to bounce around more he knocked Laine down then Jonathan who had Bowen in his arms. He then tried to hump Jonathan. That's when I had to bust a move and get over to Laine so Jonathan could get up off the ground. I got Laine, skirted the fence and proceeded to tell Larry "no, bad camel" like he was a dog or something. Yikes. Laine and Bowen were scared to death. Mere was too, she was a little worried that Larry would knock her down and scare Rabbit. All in all, everyone was fine. Jonathan scratched his knee from the attempted humping and Larry is probably a little sore from Jonathan beating him away from the kids. What an adventure, thus Larry's new name.

This ranks in the top 5 most exciting weeks of my life! I mean I get to find out if I'm going to be the aunt to a boy or a girl and the 7th Harry Potter book comes out, I'm dying here. We have been quizzing Laine and Bowen on whether the think Mere and Ryan are having a girl or a boy. Their answers never waver so I've documented their choices in pictures:
