Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Sammy’s Poetry Day.

I am thankful that my folks never get mad at me. Look at the paper I shredded and they just laugh and say I am an artist. .Sorry about the laser eyes, mom could use a photography class. I am also thankful that I will get to see my Grammie today.

And here is my poem based on this photo:

A little over a year ago,
can’t remember if there was snow.
Our friend, Sammy was ready to leave
his passing everyone would grieve.
Before he left, he took a ride
in a hot air balloon, riding inside.
We each showed him a special place
we chose Emily Dickinson’s birth place.
I know you already know it,
but Sammy was an excellent poet.
More than that , he was a friend to all
and when he left, we all did bawl.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.


1. I have never been able to _____________________.

2. I wish I could still ___________________.

3.  ____ is my ideal winter night.

4.                      and                      .

Sunday Selfies

Hi everyone! Can you see me? I blend in pretty good on this blanket. Dad said to thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday. It is very cold so I am going to keep warm in my blankie and turn this post over to Joanie.

Gremmie and I match when I have my sweater on. Mom crocheted some mittens for him.*

His feet was cold too so we got him some UGHs.

See, they say UGH on back.

Next week, I tell you all about his potty training. Now we haz nap.

We are joining The Cat on my Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

*Clearly I have cabin fever from staying in from the cold. Who makes mittens for a gremlin?

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are thankful to all who donated to our friend Toby’s dental as well as all who spread the word and are praying it goes well this Friday. If you donated and did not hear from me, please let me know in the comment section. I am hoping to get all the catnip toys and mats mailed out on Friday.

Prancie has her poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, participants were asked to write a poem based on this photo:

Creativity is always fun
yet different for everyone.
Some turn a wall into a tree
that would not be me.
Someone may write a song,
that would take too long.
I like to destroy Daddy’s paper
that is my favorite kitty caper.

Prancie being creative

Santa Was Good to Us

Hi everyone! We hope you all had a nice Christmas.

Sammy thinks Santa left him cookies

Grammie got me lots of treats

Emmy got a brown mouse in her stocking

Mommy got Daddy a telescope ( this is him assembling it)

 

Millie opened this big container of treats from Grammie

KaTwo got these toys from Grammie

And Joanie got her Gremlin, she named him Gremmie

We think maybe Grammie is the real Santa.

Mom even did something stupid for me to write about. She was making gingerbread truffles so she melted white chocolate in the microwave. She thought she set it for a minute and wandered off, when she got back in the room, the microwave was still on and she realized she hit an extra zero so it was set for 10 minutes. Luckily, it had only been 3 minutes, enough to ruin the chocolate, but she was able to save the bowl.

 

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. We are thankful for all the beautiful cards we have received by email and snail mail. Mom is setting up a slide show with them for Sunday. Thank you to all who have sent us cards, we are truly blessed with your friendship.

I am joining Sammy’s Poetry Day, this week we were asked to write a poem based on this photo:

On a dark desert highway , they got stuck
Someone gave them a ride in a truck
No one ever heard from them again
they had been businessmen
Rumor has it they stopped at a California hotel
and they disappeared after they heard a bell.

Dad always tells mom that our house is like the Hotel California for cats, whatever that is.

And here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader came up with the second two.

1. I can’t wait to see_________________________ open my gift to him/her.
