New projects

Friday is the furballs' 1st birthday and Cha-ching will celebrate his 1st on Monday the 25th, but this Tuesday is Hallie's (the niece) seventh birthday. So yesterday they had her bowling party. Daddy's shoulder is bothering him so he didn't bowl but Mommy had fun with her pitiful bowling.

While Mommy was helping get ready for Hallie's party, Rayna (the other niece) brought Mommy a picture of Rayna with Santa from this past Christmas. Mom was so excited that she came right home after the party and used her new Cricut cartridge, Christmas Cheer, to create a scrapbook page.

She also finally found the picture she was looking for for the Mickey page she created using her Mommy's cartridges, Mickey and Friends and Mickey Fonts.Mom has been spending a lot of time lately playing with her new machine. We don't mind too much because that means that we can lay on our quilt and watch her. She occassionally sprays the quilt with our catnip hydrosol. DaisyMae Maus' mom sent McKenzie and Zoey the hydrosol in their Christmas gifts a year ago and we love it! Mom just recently had to order new bottles from Prairieland Herbs. Here's Gandalf cuddling with the bottle:

Good thing it's very reasonably priced because then she doesn't have to save it for "special" occasions.

Momma said something 'bout Gandalf bein' her "bed buddy" when she was up at your house in September. Perhaps he could "sense" that Mom was the sender of the 'nip (or that she arrived with treats like Temptations an' Pit R Pats ... Anyway, she misses Gandalf (an' the rest, too). Prairieland Herbs is PAWSOME!
