Grandpa Joe and grandma Josephine (that is what we are calling the new little one) are definitely growing all the time! I have not weighed them in a while because Joe’s legs have got to long and I need to find a new pedestal to put him on on the scale. Lame excuse I know Ha ha I’ll get weighed again soon.

Grandpa Joe and Grandma Josephine are beautyful. Soon you will need a new scale to weight them, not only a new pedestal !:p:)

Grandpa joe seems to be taking a little brake from growing. We are working on an outdoor encloser and a heated night box for him now.

Grandpa Joe is doing well and getting as much outside time as he can before the weather turns cool. At this point my plan is to build him an outdoor enclosure with a heated house this winter so he can move in to it in late spring!
What size is your house going to be. I have to build one myself.
