New Additions

Well, we did it...sort of. Oh we got a kitten all right...just not the one I went to get. Bri went with me and fell in love with the little girl kitten and the kitten took a shine to Bri too so that's the one we got. Here's a pic of our new little cutie. Bri said her name is Princess. Isn't she adorable? I sure hope she gets along with the pups. I'm pretty sure Lucee will never like her. Lucee doesn't like much of anything.
Me and Sugarbear both have a headcold. We caught it from DS#2. Thanks! I'm just glad the girls haven't caught it yet. We're heading for Disneyland tonight. We'll go in tomorrow and then head back home on Sunday and go pick up Princess when we get home. Wish us fun!

What's on my mind


I'm thinking about getting a new kitten. There I've said it. We've been talking about it for several months...maybe even a year or so. Sugarbear was going to get me one for my birthday but I want a Ragdoll kitten and I just can't see spending $600 on a kitten right now. Plus we just got the 2 puppies this last year and they aren't even a year old yet and are making us crazy with their barking in the backyard and bugging a certain grumpy neighbor. Add in 2 little girls that love lots of attention and 1 older, less than friendly Siamese cat and where would a kitten fit I ask you? The answer is...right in my heart. Bri asked for a kitten the other night...then added "for my birthday" and I was a goner. I went online to our local newspaper and lo and behold a lady is selling Ragdolls! They are being sold for $300 instead of $600 since she's not going to register them. I haven't seen them yet but she sent me pics and I'll post the one I'm thinking about getting. She does have another litter that will be ready closer to Christmas that will also be $300. I'm sooo sunk...what in the world am I doing? It's sooo cute!

Between Naps on the Porch: Welcome to the Porch!

Between Naps on the Porch: Welcome to the Porch!

I've been a very bad girl!

No, I haven't done anything illegal! I just haven't posted in ages! I really thought that things would slow down over the summer but boy was I wrong!!! Where do I start? Let's see, I've dropped out of Binky Patrol in order to focus on starting a Prayers and Squares group at my church. I've been praying about this since the beginning of the year and really feel this is where God is leading me. I'm going to see if I can hook up with the P&S website on my sidebar. I haven't done that in a while and have forgotten how...I've been busy trying to create a stash of quilt tops for when we make the announcement that P&S's is going. I have a feeling we may have several that want quilts right away. I found some blocks at an estate sale and am putting them together for one. I also had 2 ladies send me some PIGS and have finished the tops from them. I have a scrappy top about 1/3 the way finished too. I'd like to have 10-15 ready before the beginning of the year but need to pray about it more and see what God thinks...after all it's not up to me!

I've been busy quilting, knitting dishcloths, and doing embroidery as well. I've started a memory quilt to honor my wonderful stepson. I have it sandwiched but when I started to do a practice piece before quilting it realized I didn't have the right kind of thread. My machine seems to love Guttermann for quilting. Weird huh? Anyway, I went to get the thread and Joann's was having a thread sell so they were out of black. I finally got it this past week so I can get back to C's quilt soon. But first I need to quilt a baby shower gift for the beginning of October. I'd also like to start on a Christmas quilt for a certain DSIL who shall remain nameless but has asked for one.

The little girls are doing fine. We're taking my 2 DS's, their GF's and DS#2's litttle girls to Disneyland next weekend. This is Bri's reward for potty training. We will be having breakfast with Lilo and Stitch and friends. I sure hope the girls don't clam up and get scared.

Are you ready for some big GREAT news? We're grandparents again! Sugarbear's daughter had her son...that's right our first grandson! He's adorable. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera when we went to see him...see yet another bad thing I did. I promise to make up for it next time though.

I'm gonna run and see if I can play around with my sidebar now...I promise to do better and come back sooner!
