Addie's Bronco Caterpillar Dragon (age 5)

Look who's ready for a celebration! All caterpillar dragons are well known for bringing in the new year, and this one is no exception. She loves a good excuse to celebrate, though she doesn't have to look far to find a good excuse. After all, there are many good causes for celebration hiding in plain sight. See how pretty the mountains are from here? Let's celebrate! Did you hear those church bells ringing? Let's celebrate! Did you notice that yummy smell of goodness? Let's celebrate! The Broncos scored a touchdown. Whoop! Whoop! Let's celebrate! You look like you could use a hug. Let me give you a great big squeeze and then we can celebrate! I have to say, I kind of like her way of looking at things. I think the freezing cold weather outside calls for a nice hot cup of tea. Who wants to celebrate with me?

Gneed for Speed

From the moment this little fella learned to balance on his very first slug as a young gnomeling, he was hooked. He caught the bug - the Gneed for Speed bug. So he searched for ways to go faster and faster. The sensation of movement as he leaned to round a corner was exhilarating! He wanted, gno wait, he GNEEDED more speed so when he was big enough he traded his slug in for something faster - a BMW (Bitty Motor Whiz) snail with a 1000 cubic mm shell. If you asked him, there really is gnothing better than the feeling of becoming "one" with the snail. The little speedster loves feeling the fresh open air all around gnomeself, as he takes in the surrounding aroma of the elements... well let's just say there is gnothing like snail riding!
