Girls, Kitties and Flowers

One of the girl’s special spots that they go to, to read.

My aunt wanted to see some pictures of our new kittens. This is our old cat that came with the house.

Here’s one of our mousers…. he’s always chasing leaves and anything that moves.

We had bought three at $10 a piece at the animal shelter three weeks ago, however, we don’t know what happened to our black and white one. He went missing over a week ago. Anyways, one has long hair and the other is a short haired cat.

 

Here’s those flowers you wanted to see, Karen. We were told that they are zinnias.

July Birthdays

Hmmm, from this end the pictures I uploaded are looking smaller than normal. Maybe something I can fix later. Anyways, we had a couple of birthdays so far… Elisabeth and Benjamin.

Elisabeth made some cookies for Benjamin’s birthday. He turned 3. He is doing very well cognitively… he can count to eleven now. Not bad for being so behind.

Just look at your happy face Ben!

The three girls sitting on our loaner couch from our wonderful neighbors. This was so I could put my foot up. The girls just looked so sweet sitting there so I had to take a picture.

Elisabeth is 12 years old now! She has changed so much this year, grown many inches and is just as lovely as ever.

She wanted mom’s blueberry waffles. Leah getting seconds or thirds or fourths…

Sweet smile…

Here she’s laughing at something I was doing or saying. She’s usually in a good mood and laughs easily.

One of my pretty new dresses I made. My other ones are swimming on me. This fabric I got was on fabric.com. Another 30-40 lbs and I can wear that antique apron with it.  : )

Hoping to post a few more pictures tomorrow.  Corky and Debbie, you have been on my minds since hearing the news. We love you and miss you. Corky, I can’t believe you are almost 90 though… you still are so young at heart and that’s why we love ya. I remember you helping load wood into Matthew’s truck like a 35 year old. You two are a big part of our foundation days of our early marriage. If we didn’t have the kids here, we’d fly over there in a jiffy. We love you and will talk with you again soon. If you are well enough please consider flying out for a visit.

40 LBS

Yeah! Down 40 lbs and feeling good. I have been wheeling the wheel chair around my table and living room to music for an hour a day. It beats sitting around waiting for the 6 week mark. I’m starting to walk all over the place (in my home) now too though I’m not supposed to until my appointment on Monday. I can’t wait to ride my bike. I’d like to work up to 20 miles by the end of the year.

My aunt wanted some pictures of our zinnias and new kitties that we got for the kids last week so I’ll post those tomorrow. Happy 4th everyone!
