Lightning Bug- aka Lil' Bug, the little brother, supper silly, always moving, lover of anything with wings or wheels, general animal whisperer, and momma's boy!

Dragonfly- the baby sister, cuter then cute with a smile to melt a heart of stone! A sensitive, sweet girlly-girl who proves BIG personalities do come in small packages.
