Big Animals Are Big Around Here

A few days ago I ran into an old friend of mine while out shopping with Lex. I hadn't seen her in years and so naturally we chatted and got caught up on life. While we talked, Alexandra took note of a ginormous caterpillar on the top shelf behind her. Immediately, she pulled it down and wore it like a boa around her neck.

A short while later as we were saying our goodbyes, my friend said that she wanted to buy the caterpillar for my girls, her Christmas present to them. No, I told her, I couldn't possibly let her do that. But she insisted, and we came home with an adorable, 9 foot caterpillar.

The girls are in heaven.

And it is absolutely perfect for Elisabeth! 
Look how it wraps right around her!

We decided his name should be Sir Isaac Newton. 

It fits him.
