6!

We have had another birthday around here. They seem to be coming about every 8 days or so.

Elizabeth turns 6!

She wanted apple pie and that is what she got! Hudson did an awesome job.

And an Orange Kitten!!!

She has been wanting one for almost a year now. There just weren't any to be had and if there was, it was too far away, too expensive, or already taken. So, this spring I was diligent in checking ksl.com (equivalent to craigslist) for an orange kitty. There was one available. He was free and located in our hometown. I only drove 10 minutes to get him. I took Elizabeth with me. When we arrived, she asked what we were doing? Just as she asked, I saw the mama cat and 3 babies playing next to her. I told Elizabeth, "See that orange kitten? He is yours!" She couldn't believe it. Really! She did not believe me. After convincing her that I was serious, she jumped out and got him. She hasn't put him down since. Oh, and he is an IN-door cat in a house that allows no animals. Hmmm...? He IS way cute and very sweet. He won me over with his constant purring and snuggling with the girls.
