Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving. We had a relaxing day and enjoyed a nice dinner. We invited our neighbors, John, Brandy and Colton. I only had to do half the cooking! We are very thankful for our family, friends and health. We are blessed!

Mickey's back to normal

I am pleased "?" to announce that Mickey has eaten and drank well today and not had any vomiting. I guess we have a high anxiety cat. Aren't we lucky :)


Mickey is sick. He has been vomiting continually for the last two days and not eating. I took him into the vet and had some tests run. He was so mean that they couldn't open the cage and decided that if we ran more tests that they would have to sedate him. Dave and I decided that we had done enough and that we would watch him to see if he ate and drank and if he didn't, we would have him put to sleep. You can't not eat and drink for over 48 hrs. I brought him home to say good bye to the girls. He hid out all night, like he was trying to be alone....not a good sign.

We had a good cry session and took lots of pictures of the cat. This morning I woke up at 4, worried about the cat and knowing that I had an extra busy schedule with having to run to the vet too. Well, he has eaten some of his food and water and not thrown it up! It is an answer to prayer!

We have concluded that it was the tornadoes that upset him so much. When hurricane Ivan came through he got sick, but not this much.

Who would have know that a cat can be so anxious? My cat was misbehaving so badly at the vet that I was the talk of the vets. I had one who wasn't tending to Mickey come in and ask me if he was mine. I told him that I feel like a mom with a child that is misbehaving and I can't control him. I felt bad. He offered me kitty prozac!....again. This isn't the first time. We'll see if Mickey continues to eat and drink normally and not get sick. Then we'll worry about his anxiety! Please pray for Mickey that he will continue to keep his food and water down.

The girls went trick-or-treating last night. It is so much fun to live on base. There were kids EVERYWHERE!

Look at all that candy! McKenzie wanted to be a spa princess. She is all girl!

Miranda's costume was a huge hit! She was an MP-ME player. She saw the costume in the magazine at the dentist's office and we looked on the internet to find it. It wasn't too difficult to make. The cops loved her costume. They gave her the last of their candy!

The Best Babysitters Around!

Our friends John and Nadine came and stayed with the girls for the week while we were on our cruise. We can't thank them enough for the blessing that they gave to us. Moms and Dads need time away. The girls had the time of their lives and I think John and Nadine enjoyed being Nanny and Papa.

Snorkeling in Grand Cayman

It was so much fun to have the fish all around....a little scary. We were reassured that they were harmless and no sharks.

This was the ship wreck that we were snorkeling over. It was a ship that went down in the 30's.

Who needs Botox when you have a snorkel mask like this!....Ok, so I'm not so pretty when I snorkel, but I had a lot of fun!
