Ant Invasion!

Right before the holidays Henry and I started reading The Magic School Bus series. It is so awesome, we are 6 books in. The first one we read was about insects and, being the total dorks that we are, it inspired us to watch elapsed time videos of ant farms on You Tube. I know. Anyway, we asked Santa for our very own ant farm for Christmas. We have been waiting patiently for our ants to arrive since we got home so I was psyched to find an envelope with ALIVE! written in hot pink block letters on the side in my mailbox this morning. WooHoo!

Please excuse the homework mess on the table and the fact that Henry is wearing his parka inside for no apparent reason.

Our first tunnel! I accidentally shoved the sole dead on arrival ant down the tunnel when I was trying to get him out and we watched in amazement as the other ants dug out the little corpse and deposited him up on the surface so I could get him out of there. Pretty cool.

I'm sorry to say that you will probably have to sit through ant farm updates for a while. Sad, but true. To keep you coming back anyway, let's look at some Crankys, shall we?

The light is horrible on these, but I thought I'd post them anyway. Jennifer's badapple flaming skully longies:

Also, Jessica sent this action shot along to me this morning and it made me laugh out loud:

Also worth noting is that the Crankypants + Goodmama Sock Monkey collaboration is back up for grabs.

Check it out!
