Finding Nemo

I promise that I will blog more about Addie's birthday and her party. It was a great time and I think everyone went home full and happy. We had hot dogs and brats, fresh veggies and dip made with Tofutti sour cream, corn on the cob, deviled eggs, potato salad, chips, and fruit salad. And cake. Lots of Barbie cake. As usual it was all Dairy Free. For now, if you want to hear more about it, you'll have to go to Dana's blog.

In a surprise move, Nemo (also called "Memo" by the younger members of the family) has come to live at our house. He is a beautiful red Beta. Some readers may remember that Nemo (of Finding Nemo fame) was trying to escape captivity. However, he seems to have landed in a nice little fish vase at our house. A little jealousy errupted over the ownership of Nemo (I said he belonged to no one but himself, Addie said he was her birthday present and Lily seemed to think that he should belong to her. After all, Addie got all these other cool presents, shouldn't Lily get something?) So Adam played peacekeeper and decided that we would take a family trip to the Wal of Mart. We found a nice little female fish to keep Nemo company. In keeping with the Finding Nemo theme, she was named Dory. Dory is a blue short finned Beta. However, because Beta's tend to be loners and because we don't really want little Dory's and Nemo's floating around, they are in separate vases.

Any bets on how long the fish will survive?

bets on how long they live......
At $3.50 a fish, I bet they live till the kids go to high school.
