Happy 12th Birthday Emanuel

While the wonky weather and this nasty flu going around and around did impact our plane some he assures me it was a great day. Maybe because the physicals scheduled got canceled due to the doctor being sick, or maybe because we had an Emanuel Day… either way, my middle child is 12! Where did the time go??IMG_20180203_133426_976

We started off with a trim. Ken has gotten quite good with his clippers on maintaining cuts.IMG_20180203_133426_979

Then some lovely photos of the birthday boy.20180203_103616

With some spare time on our hands we ran out to the mall and got myself and Emanuel new runners. We are almost the same shoe size!

We snuck in a pretzel and picked up some groceries and then came home to open presents. The gift from Aunty Holly, Uncle James and Cousin Jimmie had came as well so we opened that too. He was quite pleased with his gifts.

Don’t forget phone calls from grandparents. We had a few of those!

He spent the rest of the afternoon playing with his new game before we took him out for his solo dinner of choice… Culver’s. Then… cake!20180203_190431

Happy Birthday Baby!

Neko-chan is 1 year old now! Her breeder gave us her birth date – November 25, 2016. So of course we had to make a fuss. I had a crocheted birthday cake complete with a candle to photograph her with. and she actually was rather willing.20171125_095944

For a gift we got her 3 nice big disks of pine. We gave her the one with a star in the center, but the other 2 have trees. I may just toss them in for her to climb on since she really doesn’t chew on it so much as sit on it like it is a throne!IMG_20171127_090559_386

She is definitely bigger than when we got her, and absolutely a full part of the family. I don’t think we could love her more!20171125_100025

Birthday/Anniversary/Date Nights!

After so long together we have found a way to get our time together and make it special. I cannot really explain how amazing it is to be together with someone for almost 2 decades and still find new things to say, take great enjoyment in each other’s company, and love them even more for it all. 38 yrs old on the 24th of June, 16 years of marriage on June 16th, together even longer. And while it has been up and down (and sometimes REALLY down)… I love him and I love my life! Anyway… happy couple pictures!!

But first… cake! Ice cream cake!IMG_20170624_221151_754
