That Snake!!!!

Yes, it happened again people!

That Snake found me again!
If you want to review how many posts I have on these wonderfully memorable visits, check here and here.

I innocently go out to get the mail and there he is, waiting for me. But this time he is not alone.... Oh, NO!!!
There is TWO of them out there waiting for me. I start screaming and scaring the kids walking home from school.
What do my kids want to do....?
Play with them, of course. Because there are two of them and no need to have to share them.
I think NOT!!!
Mean old Mom puts the Kabosh on that one.
We are moving them to the river/walking path behind our neighbors.
I mean really why do they not hang out there with all the bugs and weeds to slither through.
Drama Queen, my nature lover, grabs a snake and takes off.... (note her new purple finger wrap - we are cast-less and healing perfectly - wahoo). The Man trying to round one of them up. They were bigger then the last time.
This one had a bump in it. Some poor bug got GOT. I hope it was the Grasshopper that lived in our yard and loved to jump at me. Sweet-boy holding the "fat" one. Look at that happy face.
Walking the snakes over to the river.
I am done people!!!!
I am so tired of all the visits with snakes.
Why does it always have to be snakes??

Gabe is loving this post! He wishes he could be the one holding the snake.

I don't mind looking at them, admiring their scaly creepiness, when they are Behind. The. Glass. at the zoo.

Meeting them at the mailbox? No, thanks. I am right there with you!

Great pictures. I'm proud of you that you weren't so freaked out that you couldn't capture the moment with your camera. Truly blog-worthy photo shoot.

Wasn't it St. Patrick who drove the snakes out of Ireland? Maybe you could give him a call...

What is with the snakes?

Elena said...

Man, that one was BIG! I'm not afraid of snakes, but I certainly don't want them in my yard or near my house. YUCK! Hopefully the snakes will be happy in their new home and stay away.

Aubrey said...

eesh, you're giving me the willies. remind me not to come over til the snow falls and it's safe.

Caroline said...

Wait a minute...didn't it just SNOW for crying out loud. Sammy and Sallie need to slither their way into hibernation. And if I remember correctly, it is a federal offense to tamper with someone's mailbox. You should call the feds on them.

If you want to get in on the next swap, visit Kat's Sunshine and Lemonade blog ( She is planning a Christmas swap, I'm pretty sure. I'll let you know the details when I know.

crap! now you've got me scared that mine will come back! yikes! and i think that "bump" looks a little bigger than a grasshopper! - i'd say a baby mouse??? ewww!!!!!!!!!!!

Busy Lady said...

Yikes! What is it with kids and snakes. I would have been too scared to hold that thing in my hand. Eeek!! I love the girl's hair like that by the way, so cute when it is out of her pretty face. I love the pumpkin shirts too, they are way cool. I saw that in Family Fun and wondered if it was as easy as it looks. The witchy bags look a little daunting, I'm not sure if I would have enough time to make up 60 of those!:)

Pennies In My Pocket said...

Girl, I'm DONE with those snakes, too! I just literally squeeled out loud ... I think I woke the baby from her nap. OFF WITH THE SNAKE'S HEAD for that! lol Snakes make me scream...even if they are on someone's blog!


Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

I would be too freaked to think about grabbing my blog....wait...I lied...I carry my camera everywhere! You never know right?!

Thanks for stopping by my BATW yesterday!

Jennifer P. said...

Holy Taledo! Those snakes REALLY want to get to know you Queenie! I would be having constant nightmares if I knew there might be snakes at my mailbox! :)

Glad to hear about the finger healing too! Whew!

Jen said...

I am totally freaking out over here just looking at your pictures. I can barely type. Those snakes are HUGE! I have to go now, they are really freaking my out.

Lady Dorothy said...

OH, seeing snakes out and about anywhere would freak me out!!! There would be no playing with them!! Yikes!

Thank you for visiting my blog on our BATW tour! (I know I'm quite late!) I hope you'll visit again!
