This week, Tanner pretty much maintained his weight, only gaining 1/2 ounce. His current weight is 15 lbs 9.5 ounces.
We had wonderful weather over the weekend, and have had a couple of really nice days here this week. Yesterday, temps were in the upper 70's! Today is warm but raining, and tomorrow it will be in the low 40's. But we will all enjoy the warmth when we get it. Tanner loved being able to munch on the catnip plant in the garden.
Some of the daffodils were blooming last weekend, and now they have all bloomed and are just beautiful!
We hope you are getting glimpses of Spring where you live too...It is coming!
The other week, we had a snow storm. And while, it was nothing compared to what many of you have been getting all winter, it was a big deal for us here in the South. As usual, things were shut down for a period of time, which was fine with me...I always welcome time at home to spend with the boys!
The snow was very pretty while falling. It snowed like this most of the day...I was glad to get to watch it from a warm house.
The bird feeders were very popular! We have many cardinals that come around and they are so pretty against the backdrop of white. I took many photos from inside the house that day...this was one of my favorites.
Now, on to the mancats! What better way to pass time than to bake some cookies? Auntie started getting the ingredients together, and of course Ollie had to help. He is a very curious boy, and loves to be a part of the action. Watching Auntie spoon some flour into the measuring cup.
Getting a closer look at the flour container...
You have to level the flour...it is important to use accurate measurements when baking.
Finally, the batter is done...watching to see that Auntie doesn't leave any behind on the beaters.
Thanks Ollie...I don't think Auntie could have done it without you!
The mancats had a pretty good weekend. We had some lovely weather and they were able to go outside for a few minutes. It was in the 70's here on Sunday, so we all enjoyed the sunshine and warmth! Today, we are back to sleet and freezing rain :(
Smokey loves going outside and eating grass. He explores the yard and usually ends up in the side yard, where the sun is beating down on him, taking a nice warm nap.
Tanner and Cousin Pirate found the small catnip plant that has survived the winter. It should start growing soon and will be quite large by the end of summer. It is still pretty potent and the boys loved getting high from it!
Ollie and Cousin Georgie do not get to come outside like this for 'free time' yet. They are still too unpredictable and wild! They did go for a stroller ride around a couple of neighborhoods and had a nice time. They love to stroll. You can't see them, but trust me, they are in there!
Tanner's eye started running again, so we are doing more drops. It is still a touch swollen, as you can see below. This is looking pretty good compared to what it was before...
Here is a link to a video showing Tanner getting vacuumed. He loves it! It was a treat for him this weekend, since he has been feeling so poorly lately. He doesn't want or get vacuumed everytime, but he was in the mood, and enjoyed it this weekend!
