    Grandpa Joe and grandma Josephine (that is what we are calling the new little one) are definitely growing all the time! I have not weighed them in a while because Joe’s legs have got to long and I need to find a new pedestal to put him on on the scale. Lame excuse I know Ha ha I’ll get weighed again soon.

    Grandpa Joe and Grandma Josephine are beautyful. Soon you will need a new scale to weight them, not only a new pedestal !:p:)

    Grandpa joe seems to be taking a little brake from growing. We are working on an outdoor encloser and a heated night box for him now.
