Happy Halloween

That's all I have for you today. plain and simple. We were at a Halloween party on Sat., and Dana won first place, for his costume. He did it all by himself. Thought you might like to see, and perhaps have a giggle or two.

Up a tree

the lastest thing, that Petie has found he can do. Or, maybe he knew it all along, and he just showed us for the first time. He scmpered right up the tree, and was playing in the branches. He is so stinkin cute, and he has settled right in, as part of the family. HE wants to be out side with us, inside with us, playing and sleeping with us. He has acclimated to the dogs. Not saying he is playing or sleeping with them, but... he atleast doesn't puff up when he sees them.

for those of

you, anxiously awaiting the completion of the dresser, here it is...

Get my toes, mommy

is what Kimberly was saying. Get Peties toes. Get his tail. He has cute toes mommy. Did you get his toes, mommy? Smile pretty mommy. Get my toes, mommy. So you can see, just how much, this small ball of fuzz has impacted all of us. He is so sweet, and wants to play, and sleep, and he wants to be with the kids. he played int he flower garden with them, while I was finishing up the painting I had left to do on the dresser, which is done, and I will post that later on.

back to Petie. Petie will sleep in the middle of the living room floor. he will sleep on me, he will sleep on the couch, he sleeps in book bags. He is just so stinkin cute, and he loves the kids. I love that. Glad he stumbled into our car, :)

Right at home...

he has been in the house, not really even 24 hours. Petie is right at home. Amazing. He is getting along with the others. They are not life long bosom buddies yet, but give them time.
Tonight was Alex's birthday. 6. Yup.6. where did that time go? We took him to toys R us, to choose a gift with his birthday $$, and gift card from Toys R us. Loved that, he did.
Petie is curled up in one of the boxes, that contained one toy or another. Sweet.
Happy Birthday, Buddy!!

look what I found

stuck up in the axle of Dana's Firebird. This very affectionate, very young, very sweet kitten. He bonded to the kids right away. While I was painting the drawers for Kimberly's dresser, he curled up in them. He is less than enthused, to discover to dogs, and three older kitties are in his new family. For the moment, we named him Peteie. I mean seriously? How could you say no, to this face??

dresser progress...

I am working on it. I thought I would post a bit, and show you at least the knobs...
they came from Target, and were plain white. I used a rubber stamp, with satz-on ink, and stickles, to put the dots on. I am still thinking about how I want to do the whole thing.

It is sanded... I do have the first coat of a light lavander on it... still debating.
