Cute Kids

Garrett is suppose to practice piano every day. He has been taking lessons for one year now and has gotten really good. Joy to the World and Deck the Halls were some tough ones but he pulled through and made them sound great! When it comes time to practice it's usually after school and Ben E is napping. But when Ben isn't asleep no matter where he is in the house he comes cruisin' to the living room to where Garrett is playing the piano. He usually is crawling and then stretches his arm and fingers up to play along with Garrett. At first Garrett was frustrated with this. I think he is finally getting used to it and thinks it's pretty cute.

We have always had probably the coolest cats ever. I'm sure some of you may remember our cat Stephen in Idaho. Drooled a lot, climbed rock walls. Well Summer Wheatley our cat now is pretty cool too. She has been with us for about 4 years now. She drools a bit. (nothing like Stephen did) and is good at playing fetch. We have NO mice or rabbit or gopher problem at all. The raccoons piss her off pretty good but not enough to where she wants to go take care of them. She is great with the kids too. The girls in the past have locked her in their room with them giving her the greatest of hair styles. (with hairspray, gel, and the works). Of course I was unaware and not happy with this when I found out what was happening. And even though the first time they got in trouble, they didn't quit.I still caught them in the act of Extreme Kitty Makeover the next couple of weeks. They have been a lot nicer to the cat and only seem to decorate her with stuff once in while.

I can't believe I just did a post about my cat....Man! Do I need something to do or something to happen!!!!

That's funny. At least the cat tolerates the girls' makeovers.
Don't worry about turning into the crzy cat lady who blogs about her cats. You are probably not the first to do it. Google 'cat blogs' and you'll be amazed at what you find

I love the cat picture and Ben E is going to be a good pianist. Perhaps he would work at a Dueling Piano Bar.
