Sage SITS!! And the Hamster Saga continues...









So we all know Sage is Spicy. And just does not typically stop, always in motion. For Christmas she got these lacing beads and when we first brought them out, she just really found them fun to throw! Last night I pulled them out and Mark and I sat in awe as she sat for over an HOUR lacing the beads! I asked him if he now wanted to take her to China when we go. HA! ;-)
The others are of Diva Sage, just to funny!
And the never ending saga of the hamster. Mark is so embarrassed he told me I better not blog about this, but come on, I know you want to know!
We found the hamster just in time for Chinese New Year. Then... We lost the hamster. And we thought that Sage let him out. We caught her climbing up to where the cage was and pulling open the door. Then we CAUGHT the hamster again. Mark thought he killed the hamster in the middle of catching him. He was trying to corner him and a poster tube fell over on him. Mark said it was quite the site as the hamster stood up and spun around in circles and then fell over. He picked him up and figured out he was alive but he was having trouble walking for a bit. Then after awhile seemed to be fine. So we put him back into his cage and moved it up where Sage could not get to it. Guess what? He is GONE again! We have looked all over that cage and we have NO IDEA how he escaped. Honestly. We have tied every corner together w/ twist ties, it makes no sense! Regardless of what "type" of hamster he is, let me tell you, he is AMAZING! And FRUSTRATING! How can a 2 inch RAT be outsmarting us all! I am trying to refrain from reminding Mark that I asked him if he thought we should put him in the other cage we have when he found him yesterday. Sigh... Oh well, it could be worse. We could have bought the kids a snake! And though Sage sat yesterday, she is full of spice today, on the counters as I type. AHHH!!!

Hey...its the year of the rat...no outsmarting that thing this year! Lauren has the same beads and loves them! Sage sure sounds like she keeps you on your toes. Can you imagine taking her on a plane to China? Instead of looking for a hamster you would probably be looking for your spicey girl! :)

Whats this rat's name? Houdini by any chance!

hey, where did you get those beads, I bet my girls would like a set.

Good luck on the hamster hunt, you might consider buying a cage to put the cage in. lol.........

Hehe! I suggest you just give it away to someone with a rat-proof house. ;-) Maybe it squeazes through the bars and then vaporizes?? You never know.....

I LOVE the new pictures of Mavery. She is just gorgeous!!
