New From Farmington

Ivan has asked me to post some pictures on the blog, so I will! Some of you may have seen on Facebook that we got a new kitten a week ago. She is a nine week old Chocolate Point Ragdoll. She was found abandond in a parking lot, and a lady from my church was fostering her for Last Hope. This lady new my mom had a cat similar to the ragdoll, so she brought her into church and showed my mom. Then my mom showed pictures of her to me and Ivan and I fell in love with the little cutie! She is really a very good kitten. I think she feels at home now and is exploring all the different parts of the house.
More fun news, we turned the heat on last night!!! After a year and a half, we finally have all the insulation in the exterior walls and attic. Ivan hooked up the new thremostat last night, and I came home to a warm house! We definately need to get the ceiling fans in because there is a definate temperature difference from the main floor to the second floor.
Ivan is working hard and lots of hours. They are on mandatory overtime right now, he has to work 4 weekend nights a month. (he is on third shift now, don't know if that has been posted yet)
I still have the four girls at work, and everything is pretty much the same. I have been babysitting a lot for the first baby girl I had here, Paisley. Her family moved to Belgium when she was six months, then to China this last spring, and now they live back here in the St. Louis Park area! It is great to see her and her brother!
Well, I should go wash dished before the babies get up from nap! Have a great day all!

Fun to hear from you! Duchess is a cute kitten.

Nice to hear Ivan is working lots. There was a time when we might grumble about extra hours; today we have been reminded to be thankful for them.

Congratulations on the insulation and the heat being turned on. Despite the feeling in C's bones, it would be a cold winter without the heat.

Glad you are enjoying time with your day care kids. I am sure you become pretty attached to them!

Keep posting...

Thanks for posting. Glad to hear you will have heat this winter.

Your Dutchess is cute. Wow, those
eyes are beautiful.

Yes, be thankful you are both working. There are so many out of
work. dk

Hi Ivan and Missi! Your kitten is beautiful! I have been thinking that it would be fun to have a little kitten, bur Frans is not as excited as me about it, so I don't think we'll be getting one!

Kitty is super cute. We still have ours. I'd be in trouble if she had as much fluff as yours does tho'. The cat allergy thing is really annoying now that I've decided I kind of like the critters!

So much fun to get house projects going. Things like heat are a great big bonus!!

Despite my issues with cats in general... you have a very beautiful kitten!!!

Great to hear from you! When are you coming up this direction?
