Kitty cats

I finally took a decent photo of one of our kittens. This is Dot. When she was born she had a little dot on the top of her head (which is where the name comes from) but since she has grown a bit, it is more like a little comma. And you may notice the two different colored eyes, a blue one and a green one. It's not a trick of the light or my camera, she really has two different colored eyes. The blue one is SO bright blue!
In other news, we had a storm blow over last night. It missed us, but blew a barn down about 3 miles away. We got strong winds and heavy rain, but the worst passed just to the north of us. The storm kept me from my computer last night, so no late night bloggin'
Hope your day was creative.

Running and running and running

We are back from another Cross Country meet, this one was a little closer to home....only 15 miles to be exact. And Mr. N has done it again. A 1st place finish with a time of 8:58. He was a full 20 seconds ahead of #2 and 30 seconds ahead of #3....42 seconds ahead of #4......LOL He did very well. Now, if I could get some pictures printed, I could do some scrappin'.

Now, I have pictures

This is why there were no photos posted earlier, you can't even tell who is who. I know who they are...LOL The football photo is of Q in his first play of the game. We are GREEN. And in the running photo is N after the gun start. Also in GREEN. I had the good camera at Q's game and Peter had the old digi at N's meet. Oh well, here they are.

Buckshot run...I survived!

Family photo....looks like a Christmas shot, no?

We did the Buckshot Run (a charity walk/run for Special Olympics) yesterday and we all survived. Nick (in red) actually ran the race and finished 3rd in his age group, not sure about the overall placement. Uncle Joel finished 1st in his age group and 6th overall. Quin (white hat) finished ahead of Aunt Kim, they both did a walk/run/jog thing. And Peter and I did the walk walk thing....very little running. I even did a little hop and twirl at the finish line....just for gave the crowd a laugh. Unfortunately my niece got a photo of it and she will be sending that along as soon as she gets time to upload and send it to me. That was our Saturday in a nutshell because after that I was too tired to do anything. With all the family in town, we did a lot of sitting around and yakking, so that was OK by me!

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.
