We have a new member of our family!

Welcome Edward!! (As in Edward Scissorhands, Venily's FAVORITE person in the world! Jason even wants to be Edward Scissorhands for Halloween, lol! She's obsessed with him! lol)

Daddy had to work late yesterday, so we are going to celebrate Venily's birthday by going somewhere very fun a different day (hopefully a WARMER day!), but we were able to get her her first fish for her aquarium, and she was VERY excited about that! We had a whole bunch of cool fish picked out, including a shark, but then we realized that we knew NOTHING about fish, lol! I guess you need the tank set up at least 72 hours before you put fish in... and the fish we wanted needed a water heater... so there was a VERY strong possibility that if we had brought those fish home yesterday they would all have been dead by morning! So we went with a Betta since they are almost impossible to kill and live for so long! We plan on getting some more friends for Edward at a different time so he's not so lonely! Venily has checked on him already a million times today and loves watching him swim around!!!


  1. I've had Betta fish for a few years now and Im not sure if you can mix Betta's with other fish. Did you ask the fish expert at the store? It would be cool if you got some little neon's or guppies.

  2. Yeah, I had a Betta too when I was in college that lasted like 4 years! You can only mix them with non aggressive fish and fish that don't have flowy tails, so no guppies! There are a lot though that they CAN be with...
