introducing new additions to the family

IMG_3748 To those that don’t know me too well might think that this blog title means there’s going to be tiny little feet running around our house soon, and you’d be half right … and those that do know me will know that this means that those tiny little feet are actually paws!
A dear friend ours came home from trip to Texas to find the little kitten (of about 9 months) she left in the care of her husband and 3 sons was prego! I’m not saying her husband is to blame, in his defense those 3 sons are a handful!! She let me know that if we were ready to be kitty parents again we had first pick of the litter… well, as it turns out I might have been the hold up all this time for us to jump into pet parent-hood. Mike has all for it! So I told her that we would claim 2 of the little bundles when they made their appearance… then we waited for them to be born…

April 19th around 5 in the evening I got the first text that the little ones were on the way! Our friend is an experienced animal person so she handled the birthing much better than I could (or would!) I’ll ask her to write about the event for you guys later… she’s a busy lady… remember I mentioned the 3 sons…

She sent pictures and the ooh’s and awwwe’s started… over the next few days and weeks sheIMG_3763 and  I would talk and I’d get updates of the litters progress. There were 5 in the litter, 3 brown tabbies, 1 gray tabby and 1 orange tabby. 3 boys and 2 girls (my friend figured this our in record time… I would have had to wait for more ‘evidence’!) In the pictures she would send, I noticed that the orange and grey ones stuck close together… when I visited them the two of them seemed to be buddies… so we couldn’t separate them… SO, we took the orange and grey tabbies!

So… we needed names now… we had already been tossing ideas around we settled on either Maverick & Goose or Ponch & Jon. So I posted on FB or two finalist and asked for feedback. A few of our Navy friends pick the Top Gun reference … But cop friends won out… it’s Ponch & Jon from the 80’s TV show CHiPS! Orange tabby is now known as Jon and Gray tabby as Ponch!

IMG_3794 IMG_3796They came to live with us at 5weeks old (long story and one day  I’ll share it) and promptly took over the house! They are now going on 12 weeks old and haven’t slowed down at all. They have 2 speeds… wide open and fast asleep! It has been challenging having two tiny kittens around again… you have to watch were you step… for fear of either stepping on a kitty or a kitty toy! And the all night races through the entire house is something I’m looking forward to ending (SOON!) We are enjoying the little tiny meows and the tiny wet nose kisses… and the milestones… like jumping up to the couch… instead of clawing to the top!

So for now here’s a few pictures to catch you guys up to speed on the new littles at our house… not to worry… more to come!

Thought I had Quit....

You guys thought I had died... I know... Well... I wish I had a story to tell that would explain my lax of posting to this blog... Other than to say life has gotten in the way. Cute kitties, baking, cycling and work have all consumed most of my free time. What few minutes I had to myself were spent with my eyes closed hoping no one would need me for anything! But I'm back and am going to give it another try. I have had lots of projects in the craft room to share so there's no lack of content... just lack of free time to share! Here's some random photos from the last few months... and check back soon... I'm working on a craft post! This boy KNOWS how to nap! Off on new adventures! This one LOVES to help! ... and he's pretty nosey! what a tummy! I love all things snowflake-y! trying to decide if the bag is for his guest... or HIM! cruising to visit family...  on an adventure! my fi

Cricut magic

I am really enjoying my Cricut. This year I’ve made all kinds of cool things with it, cards, banners, tags, stencils, snowflakes… But my favorite thing so far has to be a gift I made for my sister for Christmas this year! My sister is quite the baker and takes her treats all over town, to others to enjoy, whether its the girls meeting or a family dinner, she likes to share her confections with everyone. I had come across a Pin that showed the etched bottom of a glass 9x13 pan and thought that would be cute to make for her… But the more I thought about it the more I talked myself out of making it. The 9x13 would limit her to using it for brownies or dump cakes (which she does bake these) but I wanted to do something special for her cakes and cupcakes … Then, Inspiration hit while enjoying a leisurely stroll through my local Michael's Craft store… I came across a display of Wilton cake carriers and then it hit me… why not use the Cricut to personalize it with Beth’s name using th
