Long Pause

I know I know what a loooong pause!
I have been a busy lil bee around here lately! Our daughter and her friend are going to be here until after christmas so we have been baking, cleaning, making lists, crafting, packing, shopping, shopping and moooooooore shopping!
Two days till christmas and guess what....
I am still not done shopping!
I swear every year I will start my shopping in august so I am not doing this every year!
The thing is.... I really don't like shopping! Weird I know..... I am a woman!!!
10 years ago I lived in the malls now I don't even like being near the malls!
Hubby is happy! :-)
I promise to continue our christmas cottage tour after christmas!

Te-hee...... look my bird bath looks like a mushroom!

Poor birdies the only thing they can do now is make birdie snow angels! Look at this precious face.... Does she melt your heart?

I wanted to share with you what I did today that made my heart sing! I called every shelter and vet and pet store in our area to find a kitten to adopt! You see when our daughter, grandson Ty and Miss Emma {our grandbaby} lived with us they all got attached to our kitten, Kitten and Miss Emma were unseperable! Kitten napped next to Miss Emma and they played together all day! Kitten slept next to our daughter every night! When they moved they wanted to take Kitten with them but it broke my heart and I could not give up my kitten. I was too attached to her! Plus she is a mommas girl!

To make a long story short today I found the perfect kitten for them for a christmas surprise! We picked her up, put a red bow around her neck and delivered her to our daughter, grandson and Miss Emma!

She is 4 months old..... {we did'nt want a tiny kitten because we were affraid Miss Emma might hurt her!} She purred almost instantly and is very cuddley and loveable! The perfect lil angel kitty! Her birth name is Cookie but I think she may get a name change!

Miss Emma loved her instantly! Her eyes lite up and she pointed saying hi hiii!

Ty loved her too and wants her to sleep in his bed tonight! Our daughter loves her and is glad to have a kitten again!

I have to tell you that made my day! It filled my heart with joy!

Look at this precious face smiling.... Miss Emma is so happy!

Thank you all for reading my blog and taking the time to leave a comment!

I would have never imagined that blogging would be such a life changeing wonderful experience! I am so glad to have met you all and call you my friends! You are such a blessing to me!

I wish you all a blessed christmas filled with love, family, and many memorable moments!

Merry Christmas from my heart to yours!

Hugz, Dolly

See you all after christmas!
