Meet Mimzy!

Well, we did it; Carter filled up his smiley face chart . We got a guinea pig instead of a hamster. The pet store guy said that these are much more friendly and better for kids. So far it has proven to be true. She's pretty good about letting the kids hold her and when we let her walk on the floor she'll come right up to us. She's not so sure about us catching her in the cage, but once we've got her she's nice. The poor thing has been through several names, but I think we've all settled on Mimzy.
The girls, especially Halle, are LOVING the fact that we have a guinea pig. It's been hard to make them leave her alone. Carter loves her too when I get her out and he gets to hold it. I think this is going to be fun. We'll see how much fun after I have to clean the cage, but so far we are all enjoying her.
