Omaha's Friendly animals...



Okay, I guess I have been on an animal kick lately....
This squirrel seriuosly would have came in my house if I let him! It was so crazy! Erika feeds squirrels all the time, and when she walked over to my house tonight one followed her over. We proceeded to give him a bite of a cookie here and there, which he ate right in front of us. Finally, we just gave him an ENTIRE cookie! He grabbed the whole thing....yes, the silver on the bottom of the picture is my DOOR FRAME...he was so close to us!
This is Big Fred...
He was ginormous! I couldn't even believe that a praying mantis could get so large. He lurked around our house for a week or two...until the frost hit. Then Cody dug him a grave and he and Jace buried him...poor Big Fred.
Finally a picture of us! YESSSS!! It has been a while! We went to The Melting Pot this weekend....O was it ever divine! (Okay, divine for me, a small little piece of down under for Cody...no, not AUSTRALIA...the other down under!). He wasn't into the "cooking your own food one piece at a time" thing. I loved it...so many different meats all on one platter, and the dessert! Cody did love the dessert, which was smores chocolate (milk chocolate with marshmallow and graham in it). They give you an entire dish of yumminess to dip in the chocolate, including oreo covered marshmallows and rice crispies!

PS-Chels, that squirrel is not going to leave you alone now. Mom had one tear up all the cushions on the deck furniture....and she thought he was just sooooo cute

Chels - I just made this connection but some of our good friends from Logan just moved to Omaha for law school (I know Cody is in dental school there). If you run in to them (through church or something), tell them hi - their names are Josh and Dana Dunyon. They are awesome...you should look them up and hang out!
