Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence_Day_(United_States)

Happy 4th USA!

After and Between…

It’s a couple days after Christmas and a few days until the new year. In our house that is recoup time between the holidays. Our Christmas was nice and the kitten had a great but tiring first Christmas and is currently fast asleep…

Chase on the other hand humored me earlier today and put on the ‘Grinch who stole Christmas’ antlers and looks just like the Grinch’s dog Max…What a CUTIE!

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I have been avoiding my blog for a couple weeks because I had a happy surprise and I couldn’t post about yet. Why you may ask?? Because my mom reads my blog and I hadn’t told her yet and I wanted it to be a surprise for her and my step dad as well. So my thankful post this year starts with this… WE GOT A KITTEN!!!!!!

kitten

He is a 3 month old American shorthair and is only 2 1/2lbs. We named him Grayson Gabriel…

He is so perfect for our little family. It took the dogs a few days to accept him and about a week and a half to get used to him being part of the family… but after 2 weeks we have peace in the house and are having so much FUN!

Hubby and I joked when we were going through infertility treatments that if we didn’t have a baby in 5 years we would get a kitten… over 5 years later the running joke became a reality and here is the kitten…

Its a little taste of a baby as we get up with him, have learned his different “meows” and what they mean, have to baby him, get him special food, spend extra time with him, comfort him, and oh he is such a snuggle bug… I just love to snuggle with him.

And he is so funny. After thanksgiving dinner where he got some special wet kitten food he passed out in the sun. It was so funny 🙂

And he LOVES his new hide out box, but hasn’t quite figured out to get his tushy in to really be hidden 😉

I just love to have him snuggled in my arm. He is just so cute so I am sure there will be many posts to come that include him.

I am also thankful this year for my boys and the good big brothers they are being. Chase even shared some thanksgiving goodies with Grayson…

I am thankful my mom and stepdad got to meet Grayson and LOVED him and that hubby and I got to spend a happy thanksgiving day together with my mom and stepdad and all our animals that now total 19 chickens, 2 dogs, and a kitten 🙂

Happy Veterans Day!

Today in the USA is Veterans Day. As I watched some TV today there were lots of programs and shows honoring veterans. But as I watched them it struck me how they seemed to skim over the real “honoring” part. Some shows did a great job, while others said a short thank you and moved on.

Dogs 4th

I want to try to make up a little for where our culture falls short on really appreciating the men and women who sacrifice so our country can maintain its freedoms. These men and women sacrifice their time, family life, sleep, safety, happiness, comforts, and even their lives for the rest of us who live in the USA. You aren’t appreciated enough and are often taken for granted, but… I want to say a big THANK YOU … MY FAMILY APPERCIATES YOU… YOU ARE OUR HEROS… and so much more to those of you who have ever served in the military in any capacity and for those of you who currently serve THANK YOU and you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and your families 🙂

Happy Belated 4th

The boys reminded me today that I never posted their 4th photo…
