We got the bowl ready the day before...the kids loved decorating it!
We made the trip to Petsmart a special event that was in our advent calendar. We looked at bunches of little bettas, but picked the first one that we all saw anyways...he was "the one". He wasn't scared of our finger when we touched the side of his bowl...yay!
Blake got to carry him to the car, Taylor got to hold him on her lap for the ride home...(gotta keep it all even with TWO kiddos!!lol!) We set him next to our bowl for a couple hours, then acclimated him to his new home! He immediately swam around, even went into his new cave dwelling! He seems to be right at home!
We spent a couple hours trying to come up with a name that we all liked...we narrowed it down to: Blue Bell, Herbert, Finny, Oscar, Sushi, or Flipper! We finally agreed on FINNY! All day, we just kept looking at him! We really love having a little fishy around!

pleasures! She knows that she can't touch the
water or she'll make him sick.
