Snake! Run!...or Shoot?

I thought I would share a funny story that happened to us about two weeks ago. Well it all began when Justin wanted me to cut his hair...he's cheap and won't go to a real barber so I get nominated to do it. So we go outside and I get his hair all cut and he wants to go inside to make sure it looks ok since there's alot he can change about it now. Well all of a sudden I hear him screamin bloody murder, ok maybe not but he did kind of scream but more of a manly scream lol. He said, "Mikayla quick there's a snake in the house!" And I am thinking, "What? There's no way and if it is how'd it get in there and how long has it been there? Surely he's joking." Well I run and look in the door and sure enough there is this huge snake slithering down the hall and Justin is running in all sorts of directions and is yelling at me, "Quick, get my clip or 22 shells!" And I am like, "What your going to shoot it in the house?!?!" He is just yelling "Hurry before he gets away". So I run and get his shells still thinking maybe he's kidding but at the same time I don't really care because it's a snake and I hate snakes and especially do not want it in my house. So next thing I know I hear a shot go off and sure enough Justin shot it. Justin claims the snake was hissing at him so he just had to shoot the thing in the house haha! Well he did end up making a little hole in the carpet but it's not bad at least we got rid of the snake. We still are not sure how he got in the house. We're thinking it must have been through the door as we were going in and out getting ready to cut his hair.
Here's the hole in the floor see it's not too bad.

See it was a really huge snake yuck!

This is where Justin shot it in the head.

We finally broke down and started a blog...

I can't believe I'm doing this but me and Justin finally decided to start our own blog. We really enjoy reading other people's blogs so I guess we can write one too. I'm going to apologize ahead if I do not blog something every week, I'm going to try my hardest though.

Well I think I should probably start off introducing everyone to our crazy life. Me and Justin just got married April 18, 2009.

And since April we have been super busy. We farm and bale hay which keeps us pretty busy. During the summer when we weren't doing that we went to the lake quite a bit.

This is Justin skiing.

and this is me...I'm terrified, I am not a big water person. I just like to get a tan haha!

Summer has ended and I'm still going to school at Eastern and Justin has fend for himself on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. I get to help him after school and on the other days cuz we are super busy with haygrazer and Justin has been planting wheat too.

Wow I can't believe I almost forgot to introduce everyone to our two little ones. We have two dogs. Lexi who is a full grown Toy Australian Shepard and our puppy Griengo who is supposed to be a full size Australian Shepard, he's just kind of small right now for his age. We're waiting for him to hit his growth spurt.

This is Lexi.

and this is Griengo!

He only looks cute and innocent. He is a little terror right now, but I have to say he is getting better. He no longer draws blood on mine and justin's hands any more lol. (And by draw blood I mean one little drop, but it still hurts!) He likes Caprisun and loves pulling our straws out of our cups.

Well that's enough about Griengo, Lexi is like the perfect little dog. She has manners, does tricks, and does what you tell her to. She acts better than most people do. I'm sure Griengo will grow up to be a good dog too, we pray.

Well I'm curious to see how this posting turns out since I'm a first timer at this.
