Tomorrow is the day!!

That we leave on our vacation!!! We still have a good bit to get done before tomorrow, but not a whole lot! :-) I need to finish the laundry, I only have four loads left!!
We already have most of the animals taken care of, but I still need to make a list for Matt and Jennifer so they know exactly what to do for the animals while we are gone! Anyway, I need to go do laundry now!!

Note to Ashley: Thanks a lot for sharing your cold with us! That was so very kind of you! We aren't all sick, I guess you must like some of us better than others, right?! You must like Luke, Elijah, Nehemiah, and me better than the rest of my family. Is that correct?! I just wanted to thank you for sharing!! ;-)

A funny from Joseph.... to Hannah :-)

This morning Joseph and I were sitting on the couch, and Joseph was playing with a green rubber snake, and he was talking to it,
I wasn't really listening until he said "Here's Hannah"
I said "Hannah?" and he said "Yes, this is my snake Hannah" :-)

I don't know why he named it 'Hannah',
maybe because his long skinny green snake reminded him of our good friend Hannah!!! :-)

Sunday, April 26, 2009 update... sorta.... :-)

I really need to update my blog with more pictures.... but I can't right now 'cause I'm holding Nehemiah, and it's kinda hard to select, re-size, and post pictures while I'm holding him! :-).... But, I can type alright while I'm holding Nehemiah.... so I guess I can update about what's been happening around here now, So without further ado... here is an update!! :-)

Thursday April 30th we will be leaving on a vacation to Tennessee!!! We will be leaving really early in the morning.... I mean REALLY early, like 4:00 in the morning early! :-0 And we will be back sometime in Tuesday..... So, we only have (including today) three days to get ready for the trip.... we have to pack clothes (of course!) camping stuff (we are planning to camp out while we're there!) food, ect.... ect.... ect....!
And we still have a lot to do before we leave like:
-Do ALL the laundry! (my job ;-))
-Take care of all the animals, set out feeders, water, ect...
-Clean-up the house
-Clean-out the van
ect.... ect.... ect.... :-)

So all that to say.... I won't be updating my blog until we get back.... so you can be looking forward to seeing pictures of our vacation!!!! :-)

What's up?!

So... what's been happening in your life?

Well, I guess I should share what's been happening in My life first :-) Hmmmm..... What Has been happening?!?

Today it stormed pretty hard, there was a Tornado warning, a Flash Flood warning, and a Severe Thunder Storm warning for our
area! :-o . Most of what we got was a LOT of rain and wind though... thankfully!
Our kittens are getting SO big! They can get out of there box now, and walk around. It is so funny to see Saber (for example) walk up to Pepper and for Pepper to look at him, turn around and RUN!!!! Our adult cats (all except for Liberty, of course!) run whenever they see these little kitten walking toward them!! :-)

I need to go fold laundry now!! I post some more later!! :-)

Thanks again, Ashley!! :-)

Isn't he pretty?!
I think they said he's about 3 feet long!

More pictures of the kittens...

We still aren't sure what to name them.... Most of us (meaning everyone but Caleb) agree that they should be named after candy bars, but some of us (meaning Caleb) think they should be named after something different.... like after weather! :-(.
But, last night we (Caleb, Sam, and I) were discussing the matter of the un-named kittens, and Caleb had another 'bright' idea!
He said "What if we named them after wildcats?" I think that is a better idea than the weather idea he had, don't you?!
Anyway, I think we all agree that Wildcats is the best idea so far (especially cause we All agree!), So then we had to figure out what wildcat names to use.... so far we have:
(for the boys)
Tiger and Lynx :-)
(for the girls)
Puma and ????????
We can't figure out what to name the second girl, do you have any ideas?????
Girl kitten, named?????
And last, but not least... Lynx! :-)
Group pictures of our 'Wildcats' :-)
I Love this one!
It was pretty hard to take pictures of 4 kittens, Sam was trying really hard to get them All to look the same way, at the same time! It was a challenge!

Nehemiah's 6 month pictures!

Peek-a-boo! I see you!
Yep, he's our blue-eyed baby! :-)

I Love this one!

The little Cowboy! :-)

Isn't he Cute?!
He definitely has some chubby cheeks!
Don't You agree?!
I Really like this one too!!...
and this one...
and this one.....
oh! and this one too! Ok... I guess I just like them all,
what about you?! :-)
