There's a First Time for Everything...

THIS is what Austin found in our hallway this morning!!!


It is the first time that we have ever "discovered" a snake inside our house and hopefully it will be the LAST! Austin actually touched it! It was in a darker part of the hallway and he thought it was a big worm. When he touched it, the snake snapped at him and scared him half to death! We washed his hands and immediately called Daddy, aka "hero of the day" to come and take care of our new little friend. Not quite sure what kind of snake it was, but he was mad and aggressive striking at us several times. (Pretty sure he wasn't a gardener snake.) He was a small little fella, but I was DEFINITELY NOT going to get too close, my job was to just make sure he didn't slither off into hiding until Andrew got home. Good times! Daddy came home and saved the day and somehow we managed to turn the whole thing into a learning experience. :) Austin's letter of the week this week at school is 'S' and I don't think he will ever forget that Snake starts with the letter 'S'. He was so excited to go to school and tell his classmates about having a snake in the house! That's my boy! Andrew didn't waste any time and went straight to Lowes to by new weather stripping for the front door and I have been walking around the house very carefully making sure our little friend didn't bring a buddy along. Praise God that my 3 year old found it and not my 15 month old! Never a dull moment in the Werley house!

OMGosh! Okay, you were WAY too in control, because I would have been screaming and going crazy! That snake is HUGE, and is it just me or are those fangs I see in the picture?! Oh I'm shivering just thinking about it!

Holy goodness! We had one in our house on Sunday but it was like 8 inches long. That is just plain scary!! Glad all is well now!

Is that the same Andrew who refused to go in the laundry room at our old house cause he thought he saw a mouse? Actually I wouldn't either, we covered the hole with a bucket, put a brick on it and closed the door.

OH MY GOSH!! I agree, that snake is HUGE!!!!!!! Yall are so brave! About a month ago, we got home, and I saw a snake in MY HOUSE slithering to the front door. It really was a garden snake I think...I too called "daddy" to come save the day. We never found it..I really think it crawled out the front door. We too got new weather stripping to make sure. Just DISGUSTING! I really want to know what kind of snake that was. Just can't believe it!
