    Congrats! That is an adorable picture! They match the sofa and look like they are really checking each other out, like
    "where the heck are we?"

    Thanks guys, they're actually standing on the office chair. Dh wouldn't like it if I had them on the couch. lol

    I'm really impressed with how big they are. It hard to believe they came outa those eggs.

    I ended up with 1 black, 1 splash and 8 blues. They're soo incredibly cute.

    Quote:Erda, Utah! Isn't that a suburb of Toole? (That's Toowilla for everyone in Erda!)

    Ah, back in the day I knew the Stutzneggars, the Burgoynes, the Bennets.... I doubt any of them live there anymore.
