All together now!

And sing! :D
Then snooze in Nana's lap....
And then on Nana's bed...
And finally Moriah's bed!!! As you can see, Karah has taught all of our kitties that sleeping under the covers, with your head on the pillows, is the most comfortable way to sleep. ;)



See the leaves!!! :D





Moriah took this one of me looking out across our yard :)



We started hanging our decorations...


I finally finished the cushion for the bench!
Up close of the design....Dad and I went fabric shopping about a week or so ago, and he found some that he loved, but there wasn't enough of it, so the lady who was working in the fabric department at the time helped us look for some, and she found this one...We all love it! :D It really brings out the red color of the wood:

"Gggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!! I'm gonna get you!"

"If my sister will ever let go of me, that is."

My "Babies"!!!!

Here's some more pictures of my "babies", for those of you who've asked. :)

"Kitty tell-apart 101" This is Penny. She looks almost exactly like her sister Princess (we are still getting them mixed up ourselves on occasion...we plan on getting different color collars for them to make it easier! Personalities also help...but not often!), but, she has less orange in her fur...and a copper stripe on her nose (hence the name Penny). :) She is *very* shy, and likes to be alone...she does like to play with her brother and sister, but mostly likes to play by herself, since she gets excluded.


Princess is the other girl...she looks like Penny, but has more orange in her fur: on her chest, and paws. :) She's very out-going, adventurous, tom-boyish, and loves to play. Hard! She is officially MY girl, and loves to sleep in my bed with me. :D She loves to pounce on her brother (and sometimes her sister) when they're sleeping, to get them to play with her.
Rocky (name pending...we're trying to come up with a better name...) is the boy, and I'm so glad he doesn't look a lot like his sisters! lol He's friendly and playful, but also likes to be very independent. This is his favorite toy...besides his sisters' tails. ;)
Me and my girl....
Princess loves watching us type! :D That's Sarah she is watching there...
Karah finally got to hold Princess! :D
Penny is so cute when she drinks! I love the effect in the water....

Rocky and Princess....play-fighting (as always)

My girl and I....again...
Penny loves string....particularly "purple" string. :)
They all love to sleep under my bed....on my suitcase (don't ask why!)
I'll have pictures of all the goodies Mom and I will be making for Thanksgiving, tomorrow. :D Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!! *hugs*

*squeals*

GUESS WHAT!!!!


Everyone, meet Penny....

And Rocky, and Princess!!! :D :D :D :D

We finally got some kittens!!! :D We met with a lady who had some, and got the last three she had. We were only going to get two girls, but we didn't want to leave their brother all alone. ;) Rocky is the grey tabby (Moriah says he's some other breed, but I don't know all that stuff, and don't care :) ), and his sisters both look very much alike, only Penny has a copper colored nose (hence her name...she was the only one we didn't name), and Princess has more copper on her chest and paws. :) They're seven weeks old, and are the cutest kitties ever!!! :D They are still quite scared, having been outside kittens before, but they're adjusting very well. :) I'll try to get better pictures later, when they like me better. ;)

Micah...

I think I'm overdue for a Micah post! :D Here's two pics of my little froggy...

It's been fall-like weather lately! :D Nice and cool....today has been warm though. :( This was yesterday...
Took Moriah and I several minutes to get this one shot of him smiling...enjoy it folks!! :)

Nano is going well so far...I need to catch up on my word count, but I'm not too terribly far behind where I want to be. I have 11,780 words so far....only 38,220 left to go! :D
I've only gotten one of my other pages fixed up Austen style...it's not going as quickly as I thought it would...I keep having a hard time deciding which pictures to use! :D
Cheerio until tomorrow! ;)

Oh my!

It seems I've taken an unannounced blogging break. lol Well, really it would be more like an internet break, only that I have been on the internet, just not for very long periods of time, and not very often....and most of it has been writing in my NaNo story, which is going great, except for the fact that I am 7,000 words behind where I should be right now. :/ Here's some pictures from my past week, until I can get a *real* post together! ;)






Dad and I took another walk at the park with a lake...It was getting near sunset, so I took the chance to take some sunset pictures! :D

Lots of geese!
One of the ducks...
Another duck.. :)
Anyone have any idea what kind of duck (or goose) this is? I've never seen one like it before...
The other night, we played hide and seek in the dark: outside! :D It was a lot of fun, and I got a few pictures...
karah hid with me most of the time. :)
Josiah was coming to get me, because I scared him when I took a picture as he passed by. :D

Micah was outside for a few minutes before we started the game. :)
Choosing who was going to count first...
Dad worked on the bench (which is finally finished!!!!! Except that I still have to sew part of the inner lining, and the cushion...) while we played...I don't know why he wore shorts!! It was freezing out!
Poor Judah got very cold while waiting for the others to decide who would count first. :)
A few days ago I took Micah outside when he got fussy...he loves the outdoors so much. :) He's just really still and calm when we take him outside..it's wonderful!




Introducing...the duck whisperer!! (aka my Dad. lol)

Our plans






When ours are interrupted, his are not. His plans are proceeding exactly as scheduled, moving us always (including those minutes or hours or years which seem most useless or wasted or unendurable) "toward the goal of true maturity" (Rom 12:2 JBP).
