belated pictures


I've been enjoying watching the sun rise and shine on this tree in the mornings. One thing I really like about our home is it has these nice big trees around it. (one thing I don't like about our home is these nice big trees around it! Any given time of the year they are dropping something!) Ah, but on to the good, they provide shade, flowers, I love to hear the wind blowing through them. And to watch the sun glance off the branches as I'm watching the landscape wake up in the morning.

I & I made ink out of blueberries and quill pens last week.

We all watched The Nutcracker today. I was surprised that they enjoyed it so much. I didn't expect them to sit and watch it all. They did have a couple comments. They kept asking why didn't the people talk. I6 wanted to know why the guys had tights on...and she thought they looked funny in tights. It was a little different then the book we read and they noticed the differences.

I have a few photos to add but blogger isn't playing nice today. Hopefully all will be working tomorrow.

Heart stopping moment

I6 caused me to have one of these today. We were almost home and I looked back in the rear view mirror and I was missing a child! I was positive they were all buckled up before I got in the car, could she have somehow gotten out in between me shutting the back and getting in? I asked I7 if she was back there somewhere. "yes, she sleeping" came the reply. Big sigh of relief! Poor girl had said she had a headache and totally conked out and had sunk down very low in her deep slumber.

This little guy of mine is just too cute! Yes I know I'm a little partial but he is! He doesn't say much more than momma and dada but he loves to talk and will talk and point and tilt his head...just makes you wanna eat him up!

cat update

James took the cat to the vet while we went to church today. Can I say what a difference between the vet we saw yesterday and the one we saw today. One way relaxed and the other very aggressive. Turns out I should listen to my mommy cat instincts as what is wrong is something that flittered through my mind yesterday but as the vet made no mention of it, I didn't dwell on it too much. Kitty is being treated overnight with fluids and antibiotics, they might keep her 2 days to make sure but should be on the mend with no troubles. The bill for all of this of course is VERY high....I think it shall change some of our plans on our trip that is coming up shortly. I7 didn't like leaving her there and we had to explain that we would be picking her back up but she needed to stay at the hospital to make sure she got well.
