Thankfulness

It really is amazing that we live in an age that a service like degustabox exists.

What is this service? You’ve never heard of it?

Well, it’s a monthly food subscription service.

What’s above is what came in our first box.

I’m thankful that we have the funds to be able to subscribe to something like this.

I’m thankful that my children are excitedly thankful when it arrives, ready to explore new foods and give them a try.

We are blessed with a time that we don’t have to worry what goes into our little ones’ stomachs the next night. They don’t go to bed crying and wanting for more.

That is what I’m thankful for this year as we sit down to enjoy our turkey.

So happy Thanksgiving everybody.

Celebrating Their Return

While the picture yesterday showed a sad Newbie in the window, the time after school was joyous.

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday this year one thing to say that I am most definitely thankful for is their positive relationship.

The littles love and adore their older siblings, and the older siblings wear the weight of that responsibility extremely well.

CHARGE!

And now TJ’s bus gets home, so it’s time to charge again!

Caturday: The Catching

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Worried about Thunder, we thought it was time to rent a live trap from the local shelter. Unfortunately we didn’t have a camera nearby at the time, but most of us got to watch as he tentatively tried to pull the can of food from all sides of the trap, eventually giving up and going in.

Yeah, just a little freaked out by the experience.

The no kill shelter nearby has no room for cats at the moment. I think we may be stuck with this little guy.

Clearly he wasn’t feral, but abandoned and scared. We started out introducing him only to the back three season porch where the litter boxes were and then to the office (with closed doors).

The next rainstorm that came scared him too. At this point I think he’s probably named Thunder ironically.
