More kitties!

It seems we are now feeding 3 wild kitties in our backyard. I got some face photos of Bob and his friend, the black and white kitty. I say friend, but I had to break them up fighting last night. I shined a flashlight on them and they both looked at me with fur in their mouths. I had to laugh.

Now Bob is the "bravest" one of them all because he'll walk right by me after I put his food in his bowl. The other two are big fraidy cats and will run if you look at them. I couldn't even get a picture of the gray cat because he's so fast to get away.

We've been feeding a feral kitty who hangs out in our backyard for the last couple of weeks. He or she is really beautiful with a great big furry mane. I couldn't get him/her to look up at me, but I'll get one eventually. He/she looks like a bobcat, thus his/her name.

Mickey's Trick or Treat in Calilfornia Adventure

This is the first 'A' in California in front of the entrance.

Maddie's costume is appropriately entitled, "The Chaos Creator." I'm going to make a cape with the help of my friend's mother-in-law before Halloween, but this was just fine for our Disney trip. The circle has a thunder cloud with lightening coming out of it. I was looking for a tornado type picture, but I didn't see any that would work.

Sorry for the blurry picture, but all the lights were cool reflecting on the water.

Cool pic of the moon.

Maddie's favorite princess (for now anyway) is Ariel.

Stuff other than Disney trip:
Helping mom cook-or helping make a mess with flour.... I don't need much help making messes, I'm a professional!

My terrible photography....

There was a really BIG spider hanging outside our bedroom the other night and the moon was right behind it from my view point. I tried getting a cool, spooky picture, but failed. Here it is anyway. I really need LESSONS!!!

My little stamper!

So if you know me, you know that I enjoy stamping and scrapping. I like the card making probably more than the scrapping. I've begun to slowly get back into the groove with having some craft time with another mom, Holly, and her son, Christian. They've come over twice and Christian and Maddie play while the moms get to make some stuff! It's awesome!!! I've missed it so much. I feel very rusty, but it's coming back slowly.

Anyhoo, Maddie is showing an interest in being crafty as well. I think most kiddos like to draw and color so it's not like this is a revelation or anything... I've let her use a few stamps and an ink pad (washable of course) and she likes it! I'm so tickled! One day we'll be able to go to one of Ah-Amy's Stampin' Up! workshops TOGETHER. I must admit that by that time rolls around, she may be interested in something completely different, but that's o.k. I'll continue to have craft time with her until she can't stand it anymore.
