I {heart} Faces Photo Challenge Pet Week

My beloved Steve. My heart smiles when I think back to the day our lives crossed, me-- a crazy busy college student. You-- a sweet, tiny, baby kitty with huge eyes and even bigger ears. Sitting on my doorstep as if you had been placed there by a sweet angel. I picked you up because you were so stinkin' cute and my heart will never let you go. For 15 years you have been by my side. Good, bad, ugly, move after move--never with tussle, always with a snuggle. You have made me laugh. You have been by my side when I cried. Funny toys, funny moments of retching up grass, great soccer games, stinky food and all.

I have loved you for every moment of your life. My heart will be forever etched with your face and the love we shared. I love you Steve, the Cat, and will miss you forever.

Garrett has been over the moon this year about sledding. He LOVES it. He would sleep in his sled if we would let him. He asks every morning if he can go sledding. Please. Please. Please.
Brian has been such a champ with taking him {a lot}. They have found some really fun hills and met some fun kids too. Garrett met one little boy who is just as crazy as he is! He calls him "my new friend Miles". I am not sure if we will see him again but Garrett talks about him all the time!
Yesterday we went to a great hill in Solon that is part of the parks system here in Cleveland. It was really fun and Garrett was so excited to show me how he goes over the 'jumps'. He is so brave! :)It keeps snowing so I am sure we will be going again soon.
Oh! and just for fun...this was one of Brian's trips down the hill...

Walking in the door the other day I over heard a conversation between Garrett and Brian. I had to stifle my laugh because to Garrett, it was serious...

Garrett: Daddy, do you mind if I call you Brian?
Brian: {pause} um, why?
Garrett: Everyone else does.
Brian: No. You can call me Dad.

Sometimes I wonder where this child comes from. His 'old soul' makes us laugh. I have been chuckling about this for days.

The life you have led...

I saw this quote on Ali Edwards blog today and thought of how true it rings for most of us. Between juggling life at home, life at work, friends, family, kids and more.

New Year; New Kitchen! Dormant No More!

Oh my! The time has gotten away from me! We finished the kitchen (shame on me) back at the end of November and since the very last stroke of paint was applied, we had family in town and the holidays upon us! Time just went and went and is still going!

Here are a few shots of the finished kitchen. I will have my neighbor (who is a professional photographer) is going to come over and photograph it for me! Of course so I can scrapbook it and have a coffee table book made of before and after photos!!
Enjoy! As I am certainly doing each and every moment of every day! :)

Kitchen update

Phew! A lot has changed since the last post of pics of our kitchen. The cabinets are {mostly} in, the hardwood floor is down, and today the countertops went in! :) We're getting there. The appliances might be going in tomorrow! I can't wait!!
