Last weekend we stayed the night with my "most wonderful" sister and her boyfriend and ended up staying up until 2pm in the morning playing spades. Now I can tell you that that's the latest I've been up in ages! But we had a great time, even if us girls didn't win. We'll get 'em next time. Here's Barbara with Eve, her newest addition to the family. She came from the Humane Society, which is a wonderful thing! Don't buy a pet, give a needy pet a home who might not be lucky and find one. There are so many poor animals put to sleep because no one cared to visit the Humane Society before making a decision on a pet. Sometimes you can even find pure breds there, but whether a pet is purebred or "mixed", there love is always unconditional. Okay, okay, I'll get off my soapbox.....for now. Oh, and don't forget to spay or neuter. Back to my sister and Eve. Eve is very full of energy, but she has such a wonderful personality! And she loves to play with the laser pen light!!!
Here is a garden bench that my sister and her boyfriend, Butch, made for me. Isn't it awsome? It looks really nice in the special spot I picked out for it. They are both getting so handy! I love them both dearly, and not because they keep giving me these wonderful handmade gifts, but because without them this world would not be the same, and neither would my life. I've been so blessed!

Here are the babies! Again!

Here's the new babies. I had to open my kitchen window and take pics through the open window to get these. Aren't they cute? Mama was getting in on the action in the one pic and in the other you see her walking off in the background. DH got out the laser pen that we use to play with our kitties and shined it out on the deck and one of the little ones was chasing the light all around in circles! Tonight I'm going to put out some fruit along with the dogfood we already feed them.

Had to share this picture of Tinkerbell. How cute is she? She's in her favorite spot on the ottoman!
Well, after feeding the raccoons for quite some time now with dog food on our deck, we finally have seen some babies. Last night she brought five up and we got a good pic of one of them. Well, I guess I wouldn't say "good" but it's through the glass in our door. We've been enjoying watching our raccoons; they are here every night. They're actually not so little anymore, but they are so cute.
