This is G.
She loves dirt and sticks... and mulch. One of her first words was mulch (mooch)
She also loves bugs and frogs and creepy-crawlies of all sorts.
We had better get out of Texas before she comes running to show me her pet rattle snake.
This is Pepe II. He turned green in G's hand. Pepe I, who was more of a tiny gecko, lost his tail in a moment of panic (they do that).
I was a major tom-boy as a kid, so apparently the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.
