Kittens and Curls

There's something so sweet about kittens and curls don't ya think?

"We're going to go exploring." Elijah said to me as he slings his new kitten over his shoulder and heads off to find an adventure.

Earlier he told me "Thanks Mom, for getting a cat. They are easier to hold than a dog." He's a rough and tumble little boy but he also has a big heart. Last night at bed time he got upset and started crying because Ethan was growing up and he doesn't let Elijah hold him like he used to and Elijah was worried about forgetting what it was like when Ethan was little. I told him we had lots of pictures we could look back on to refresh our memories. That seemed to help calm his heart and he rolled over and went to sleep.

What a sweet heart!

Kyle loves being an uncle and playing with Kamryn. I am thankful for his sake, that he has his little niece living here with us, since he is the 'baby' of our family!

Can't wait to see you guys!

My niece found a scrawny stray kitten, nursed him back to health, and brought him home to visit, where he is now staying while she's away at college. So now, our entire all-dog family is all fawning over a little stripey kitty.
