Meet Jubal

A couple of weeks ago, Pierce turned six.  SIX.  How do these things happen so quickly?  Anyhow, he had a splendid get together with family which included a highly desired "Mario cake". 

What does a 6 year old little boy want for his birthday?  Well Pierce wanted Lego sets, a light saber, an ice cream maker, a Harry Potter magic wand, and Vibram barefoot running shoes.  Thanks to generous family, he either received or was able to purchase all of these items with birthday money!  And what did he want from Paul and I?  A hamster.  He's been begging for a hamster since last summer!  I thought maybe he'd forget about it by now, but nope.  He named her Jubal.

I have to confess - that furry, fat little body.  Those perky and curious little ears.  We're all just a little smitten by this cute creature.

Including this guy.  I see you Baxter.  Don't even think about it!

Awwww, just look at that smile! Happy belated SIXTH Birthday Pierce! Try not to grow up too fast, for your Mama's sake.

Jubal...how appropriate, just look at the 'Jubal'ation on that wee face, hehe.

Wow barefoot runners I am excited about them too. Yeah sounds like fun.
Happy belated birthday Pierce. B

Awww So cute! And I love a Mario cake, brings me back a bit :-) My kids really want a dog, but I am trying to use the "chickens as pets" part of our chicken experiment to hopefully put them off until it gets warm again!

He looks like a cute pet! I hope he remains in his cat free zone.

Hmmmm....didn't you get Baxter because he is supposed to be a good mouser? Maybe you should keep him in your car.

Barbara said...

I can see that Baxter is really excited! That picture was too funny! Happy 6th birthday Pierce!

I'm glad he got what he wanted, but that's a little too mouse-like for my comfort!

I think all kids have a hamster or want a hamster at some time or another -- I just remember they have a particular smell.... :)

Awe Happy birthday Pierce. Jubal is so cute and fuzzy. I can remeber all four of my children having a hamster at one time. Oh, how fun that was.

Happy Birthday Pierce! I love this picture of the cat staring at Jubal. When I was younger our bog dog would sit and stare at my hamster while it ran in it's wheel. :)
