The Three Little Kittens

These are my new babies. Their mommy, Lily, is missing. The same thing happened last year with two of my favorite cats, Jewel and Socks. So I am bottle feeding them, washing their bottoms, (did you know that mommy cats do that to stimulate the babies to "go"? The vet, years ago, told me that I'd have to replicate even that part of being a kitty mommy. Fun stuff!) filling up a 2 liter bottle full of hot water and covering it over with a towel so that they can keep cozy and warm, and putting a stuffed animal in with them to snuggle up to. So far, so good.

The girls and I went shopping on Saturday. We found the bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dress and bought them. I'll have to post pics for them soon.

This week I need to order the invitations. Karen's mom and dad have told me how many they'll be needing, so now it is up to me.

Oh, I'd love suggestions for the food. We are keeping it simple, so I need refreshment type food ideas. Karen wants to have a fancy type of chicken salad sandwiches on croissants. I am thinking of lemonade with floating lemon slices and ice in a beautiful dispenser like this one found at Dillards

Karen's mom will be making pumpkin bread. I'm thinking of having some lemon squares too. Food is the next portion of the wedding that will consume my thoughts until it is organized, so throw in your suggestions, okay?

Today I am going with Josh to the dentist to see what work he needs to have done so that nothing comes along to bite him after he is off of our insurance. He'll also get all cleaned and polished up, so that he can look wonderful for his big day.

I hope that you are having a wonderful summer! We are really rainy here, like every-day-for-a-little-while rainy. What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?

  1. Cute kittens!

    You should check Buy Low. When they first opened, they had a glass drink dispenser similar to that. It was a little less classy, but it was still pretty. It had glass and rod iron - I think. I almost bought one, but didn't want another thing that would have to live on my counter. I think you would need more than one though.
