2 pounds of dried ants ordered. Mom was temped to buy ant eggs but they cost twice as much. Maybe for my birthday?

Instead of getting out of the hammock for the mango she hooked a claw into it and pulled it up to her.

So Ori destroyed the old feeding station. She put a few holes and cracks in it then one crack all the way through. She was lifting that part up like a door, tipping the bowl and licking up the spillage.

The old holder was made of an old gold pan attached to a board with screws. This one is a stronger bucket bottom and I put hooks in the shelf so that clean up will be easier since it's not permanently attached to wood. I may put linoleum or something on the shelf eventually.

11AM
Got up for a snack and went to sleep in the hammock. Laundry day, I say.

3PM
Slurp, nom, nom, nom, yummy slug! Mom brought it to me.

11PM
Up and playing with Aurora. She tried ignoring me at first but I knew she really would rather play than nap.

11:45PM
The others went to their cloth cave. I'm left to wait in the closet nest alone.

1AM
Mom scared the others into the closet so I could cuddle with them, yay!
Oh mom says she didn't scare them for me she needed to fix the hammock again. Bonus then I get company.

It finally snowed. I am snug in my washer however. I'm nor a fan I keep thinking it's a trick and if I keep walking I'll find the end. Here's an old photo of me trying to find a way over the snow http://www.flickr.com/photos/tamanduagirl/3240223012/


So this morning around 5AM Ori was pawing at my leg like she might climb me then when I moved she started chasing me around the room, ha ~ Pua's mommy

A bit later I ran some water in the sink and she ran across the room tail up having a blast pretending to be scared. Silly kid.

Excuse me? We were cuddling, what's with the camera?

11:42PM Ori went out in the snow. She's a crazy girl! Mom opened the door to show her. She put a hand in the snow and pulled it back. Then she charged right into it. Her head kept getting buried! She got confused circling around cuz she couldn't see and mom helped show her to the door she came in then wanted right back out. She was bulldozing through the snow going up over her head! Mom REALLY should of had the camera but she didn't expect Ori to like it!

I've never been in snow that deep and fluffy myself but I'm smart enough to know all snow is evil. Mom just let her stay out till Hyzzie was done with potty. Ori wasn't thrilled she wanted to stay out playing in the snow. That child's a nut case!

So you are not totally pic deprived this is me in snow but it's not as deep as Ori was just in http://www.flickr.com/photos/tamanduagirl/5449010828/

1:30AM Ori's at that curious stage. She was pulling my shirt out and sticking her head down it to check things out. ~ Pua's mommy

This morning when I gave their last feeding Ori noticed I was wearing a different shirt and grabbed the back as I was leaving and checked inside again but she had my back to check out this time.

Hyzzie loves the snow too. The day before her wagger malfunctioned. She couldn't lift her tail up but by the next day it was good again as you can see.
