Okay, that might be an understatement.
I am *not* an animal person.
My kids, on the other hand, generally love animals. Especially my Sam.
He has begged and begged and begged (did I mention begging?) for a pet.
Dogs and furry creatures are out.
So he started in on lizards.
For the record, no. And no. And no. And no.
But Sam loves animals.
So for his birthday, I splurged.
I invited Lil Critters and their (gulp) animals to come to my house.
Um...I think I didn't notice that a tarantula was on the list. But I digress.
Sam was in heaven.
How cute is my little birthday guy?
(And even Solly got to pet a tortoise!)
Blessed are You, Adonai our God,
Ruler of the world, Creator of all life.
