Elijah killed a rattlesnake.

GOOD NEWS! I had sprained my ankle a couple months back and finally got it to fit in my cowboy boots tonight. yippee!

Why did I force my still tender foot into the boot you might ask? I insisted on getting it in the cowboy boot because Elijah and I were going snake hunting. Anywho, more rattlesnakes were killed in town today and I would rather find THEM before they find ME. Obviously my go-to flipflops are not snake hunting attire, ergo my boots.

We walked out toward the walk path in perfect snake weather and found one! It was 10feet down the walk path.

Elijah goes, "I got it." He held it down with the shovel and cut off the head with his machete.

He also thought all the attention was ridiculous but agreed to give me a good cheesy smile.

Snake in the grass today

This is the same kind of snake that Silas found when mowing. I don't think it is the same one because it is much bigger.

I have to see the tail to know what type of snake it is.

It looks around 4ft long.
From my observances, bullsnakes would rather move along than bite someone.

And finally....... THE RATTLESNAKE!

The rattlesnake in a shoebox. It is more the size of an overgrown worm.
Gideon and Abbey set it right where they were when it bit her.

This is Gideon showing us where Abbey was standing when he saw it and warned her.

Here they are showing us the snake.

Titus shows us how he would beat up the snake. And here is Abbey back when she had hair.

The Hair Cut



Vanessa did not have much to work with and she turned it into a cute little pixie cut.
