Great Library Visit and Chameleon News

The event at the Rancho Santa Fe library on Monday was FANTASTIC! Librarians Debbie and Sylvia really did a GREAT job getting it organized and advertised. And what a brilliant idea to bring in a makeup artist! Muchos thank-yous!

The library is kind of tough to find because there are several lookalike buildings in the same parking lot. Luckily, Child #4 spotted these girls as they exited their vehicle. One was clutching a copy of I SO DON'T DO MAKEUP. We followed them in. Thank you girls, I might still be wandering around that crazy parking lot if it weren't for you!

Look at this BEAUTIFUL artwork based on I SO DON'T DO MAKEUP!

Here's Meilani , makeup artist extraordinaire, helping girls get dolled up. Child #4 may have used up most of Meilani's sky-blue eye shadow!

A special hello to Rachel from Rancho Cucamonga. :)

The Rancho Santa Fe Public Library rocks!

And...And...And....our little mama veiled chameleon is tunnelling in the five-gallon Home Depot flower pot on the floor of her cage. Yup! She's digging a hole to lay another clutch of eggs! Just to bring you up to date: we currently have 83 eggs in incubators. The first 50 should hatch in the fall.

I took this photo a while ago. I didn't dare snap a shot of her today because I don't want to interrupt her whole birthing process. If she doesn't lay her eggs, she dies.

Will keep you updated!

Sounds like fun!! I wish I had been able to go. Boo parental units who work and aren't available for transportation.

Anyway, I hope all the birthing with the chameleon goes well.

Ta ta!

Here's hoping that the Summy's have a gaggle of baby chameleons running around.

Congratulations on yet more chameleon eggs to add to your growing collection!

Your library event looks like it was a lot of fun.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Wow, your house will be like Hotel for Dogs, but with veiled chameleons! You better get your kids to work!
