Our friend Mike

Mike with his family

Ella and Mike

This past week Erik's family came to visit. His sister and her 3 children came over from South Carolina and his parents came over from Maryville. It was a wild, fun and tiring week. We went non-stop. Ella and Lucy were thrilled beyond belief and pushed themselves to the max. They were exhausted at night (as was their mommy!)

On the last night of Grandma and Grandpa's visit Erik did a big seafood boil. I emphasize the Erik part because thanks to my pregnancy with Lucy I can no longer eat seafood. Not only can I not eat it, the very smell of is brings quite a unpleasant feeling to my tummy. If you know what I mean....

Anyway, I digress. Ella made friends with a crawfish from the boiling pot of water. She named him Mike. It's been 3 days and Mike is still on my kitchen counter. He is beside the candle Ella got out so that he would not stink. As if a candle is going to hide the smell of a rotting crawfish. YUCK!
