So I just got PRICKLES !!!! she/he (it is too young to tell ) is only 12 weeks old today ! i  got her/him when it was 8 weeks old ! she( I am just going to call it a girl )  is sooo… tiny and very cute and is so curious I love her so much and she is a very good pet ! I highly recommend  a bearded dragon as a pet they are so easy to take care of once you have all the supplies for them ,otherwise it is like you always need something !!!

This was us 4  years ago !!! i am the one in a choke hold ,luke is the one choking me (not really ,though ! ) and alexis is the one who is just smiling.


thistle is gone ;(

So on Monday Luke was outside and caught 2 lightning bugs ! And well he thought that he should feed them to thistle so he put  them in Thistle’s cage and then thistle ate  them ! It was sooooo…. cool but probably the biggest mistake I ever made !!!!!!!!!!!

The next day Alexis ( went up to feed her and noticed that her beard was BLACK (which means that she was mad )  Saddly I thought nothing about it ;(  then that night I went to the pet store to buy her some sand .

When I came we came home I ran up to my room and set down the sand and said ”Hey Thistle ! How you doing ? ” She she had her eyes half-open and half closed and that looked very wired . So I tapped the glass and she did not move I tapped it harder and she didn’t budge !! What was wrong ? I started crying immediately and was yelling ” THISTLE!  THISTLE !” she did not move I was sobbing like crazy ! I ran down stairs and said to my mom crying” Thistle wont wake up.” my mom hugged me then we all went up stairs to see . 

Yes , my dearest friend Thistle had died !!!!  lightning bugs are very  poisonous  ! Apparently if you feed your lizard 1 lighting bug it will die that hour ! thistle was very tough cuz she ate 2 and was alive a whole 24 hours !!

crazy storm !!

Ok ,  so last night there was the crazyest storm ever . and so sudden ! We where all eating dinner and it started to rain and thunder . So my dad ( ordinary pastor ) checked the weather and saw the tonado warning . So we all ate fast and ran into our basement for safty . There is a perfect room for stoms down there just not so comfy  :p .My mom and dad where texting our friends and giving them updates and asking them  how they where doing .

The wind was 75 miles an hour !! :O Crazy ! the trees where like binding over ! actually a tree fell down in our ally (in our side yard !) it was sooo… exciting ! My baby brother Bo was not scared at all maybe he just didn’t know what was going on . But still he was a champ ! So was Zoë (4 years old ) she did a great job ! then after the tonado had past we went upstairs and made a pallet on our living room floor and talked about how God made that storm and made the trees bend down ! God is soo… powerfull ! and he kept us safe . We where one of the  8,000 people who lost power .tornado-5
