Snake boy

We went to a neighborhood festival this weekend, and Sidamo wanted to get his face painted. We've only done that once before, and he HATED it, so I was surprised that he wanted to give it a try again. I'm glad he did, though, because look how flipping cool this is. He chose "Serpentine."



A little creepy, no? Turns out he thought so, too—he couldn't sleep at naptime because he was afraid of his face. Poor kid.



Baby sister loved it, though. This is one of their favorite activities lately: Walking together holding hands. Kinda ridiculously cute.


Not our best family photo, what with Sidamo's disguise and mama's tear-streaked face. We made the decision this weekend to put Daisy down after our second very, very difficult night in a week (she's an 11-year-old Great Dane with spinal degeneration). We decided we'd spend one more week together and have our vet come over this coming Saturday to help us say goodbye. But apparently Daisy heard us make the call, because she has caught a second wind and is as perky as ever. So the appointment is canceled, and we'll just continue to play it by ear and enjoy whatever time we have left together.

Getting old sucks, FYI.

Sidamo can replace Heath Ledger with that face, and that's great about Daisy

Ridiculously cool face paint job, seriously. That is pretty much unbelievable. And yeah for Daisy!

That is an awesome paint job--I'd be scared of it, too! (sorry for last post--linked to wrong account)

Daisy and our Zach must be on the same wave length! The two times we've gone to the vet for a quality of life check, he has zoomed back to life!

I love Sidamo's face! Wow! And, I'm glad to hear about Daisy, too.

Very cool face, snake boy...but yeah, slightly creepy too. :) I'm sorry to hear about the ups and downs with Daisy but I'm so glad she's caught a second wind!!

Sidamo's face is freakin' awesome! (both with and without the face paint)

And I'm so glad to hear that Daisy's got some more fight in her. Saying goodbye to pets is the worst!
