The Freshmaker!


We’ve had intermittent internet access here the past few days due to the basement remodeling going on in addition to the holiday, so I haven’t been able to update the blog as much as I’d like to. This evening, we did something I have been wanting to do a long time…the Mentos Diet Coke Geyser Trick! It was easy and fun and no one lost a finger!


Miss Saucy and her pigtails!



The formerly fat 30 pound cat is taking a self nap…


And this amazing little guy is now three months old! How did this happen? How is he already a quarter of a year old? NO WAY! He is sitting up in the Bumbo chair, can hold his head up pretty well, likes to sit and watch the people around him, coos and “talks”, laughes and smiles. Started drooling which makes me think he will get his first teeth at four months like his brother and sister did. Happy, happy, little fellow. Such a joy to have in our lives!




UPDATE: 30 Pound Cat Status

Lincoln and Belden went in on Tuesday for their annual checkups at the vet. Belden, healthy as always, continued to maintain her girlish figure at 11 pounds.

The big guy, however, has lost another 1 1/2 pounds to weigh in at 34.4 lbs – down from 36.0 a year ago. This is really quite an accomplishment when you consider the average cat sleeps about 22 hours a day. Way to go Lincoln! Here are a couple shots of him after his checkup:
