As our theme is mythical creatures, here is some information on mythical creatures and creatures of legend. I have left out "evil" creatures as I'm sure none of us would equate our LO with one!!
Which creature or creature is your LO most like?
Would you use it as a nickname?

YETI - The "abominable snowman" said to reside in the mountains in Nepal and Tibet. Whether the yeti is friendly or not is down to conjecture! From Western mythology.
Jenn, so is Michaela. Her middle name is Pixie, which was Shaun's choice, so I blame him. But yeah...she really is our little pixie girl.
When I get chance I will find some more mythical creature bling, there's loads out there, it's just collating it. I'm looking at changing my signature again, when I get chance, and just using blinkies etc until we get nearer to Xmas when I'll use last year's Xmas pics to get a new siggy made. So I will add a few into mine then too.
