Our New Baby Boy

We have a new baby boy at our house....of the feline kind.

Our neighbor's cat had kittens in March.  An email was sent out saying the kittens would be able to be adopted in May.  I asked her if they had any tabby cats and she replied,  "four."  As was at her house within minutes, just to "look."
It was love at first sight.  I LOVE brown tabby cats.
These kittens were from a good home.
Emily has prayed and prayed for a kitten for 3 years.
This just seemed "meant to be."

Sarah Kate is the one who is CRAZY about him.  In fact, she never gives him a moment of peace.  NEVER!  But, he seems to love her.

Now for Kristen.......she is doing okay with him.  They have not met fur to fur.  I keep Frisco in a big dog crate when she is around.  Kristen's routine has not been affected at all.  We are using Feliaway with Kristen to comfort her during this transition.  I am taking their introduction VERY slow.  I reward Kristen for her good behavior.

His name is Frisco.  Emily named him.  He will be 10 weeks tomorrow.

Congrats on your new kitten! We have about 20 cats here but all outside.

He is precious!! We just got a tabby kitten in December (named Holly) and she looks just like your Frisco! I recently did a post about "new kitten products" but since you've had Kristen for so long, you could probably teach me a few things about having a cat! :) One of the best things I've found is to use those scented plastic bags (that are actually for used baby diapers) to scoop the litter "presents" into. LOL! I get a pack of 50 at the grocery store for $1. Congrats on your new family member!!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
