It is snowing here today! It took it most of the morning to get going but the rain finally changed over into snow. I will take more pictures over the course of the day here because I can't wait to see how much is actually going to fall.

The cookie angels

IMG_0930, originally uploaded by torri_g.

Well leading up to Christmas I was taken down and out by yet another bug that made its way into the house. Fever, body ache, feeling like I had been run over by a couple of trucks, left me with very little energy or ability to get anything done. Who was going to get the last of the cookies baked? Who was going to get them put onto trays? Who was going to get them delivered Christmas Eve? Well, my three girls of course who have now been named the Cookie Angels. The finished the baking, they put together the trays and got them all delivered. So the tradition of baking tons to give away was saved! Mom cheered from the couch under the ton of blankets because the fever chills were just to much for her. I was saddened though because of the the Cookie Angels also fell to the horrible mean bug Christmas Eve.

Today is first day that I have felt semi human in a couple of days, and just wanted to tell my Cookie Angels thank you so much for saving the cookie tradition this year!

Dreaming of Christmas

They aren't real sure just why this tree is standing in the living room, but they love the bows on the presents that are under it. So I think their curled up sleeping dreams are about more pretty bows to play with and for Mom to lose that stupid water bottle! Oh and her flashy camera thing!

Mother and Daughter

C&L, originally uploaded by torri_g.

Most of the time I don't post portraits that I've done, but every now and then I just have one that I want to. This would be one of those times. I did Christmas portraits for a friend and was very happy that they turned out so well, and that she was thrilled with all of them. There are several that are my favorites but this one pretty much tops the list.

Happy 20 weeks old!

IMG_0804, originally uploaded by torri_g.

Today the kittens are 20 weeks old! What amazing little miracles they are. I posted pictures of Mina and Lucy already so of course today has to be the only little boy...Mr. Perry. He is now the biggest of the three kittens but by no means the boss in any way what so ever. Perry is just very content most of the time to laze around and watch the world going by, or his sister's flying through the house at high speed.

Happy 20th week of life our dear little kittens! I can't wait for your 1st birthday and what you all will be like by then.

Simple Monday

Just a quick picture of Miss Lucy kitty. Lucky Lucy is living up to her name because she is lucky daily that I don't kick her tiny little kitten butt! Lucy has the idea that she is to good for kitten food and must eat people food...not like we haven't had kitties before her who tried that.

Not going to be a long entry, but at least going to get a picture put up here. Miss Mina looking just so wonderful wondering why Mom feels the need to point that super flashy thing at her. More pictures of kittens over the next couple of days coming and hopefully a return to some semi regular posting.
