We have about 60 kids on our street and about 10 streets in our neighborhood that have nearly as many. Plus many people drive to our neighborhood because they know it is a good place to get lots of candy!

We are very Happy to have them right now. I'll try to keep updated pictures of all 5 of them before they go to their new homes. They are tiny :0)
