I wasn't planning on posting again until after the New Year but I got a Christmas present from my DS, Alex, that just couldn't wait!!! I'm sure you have all seen the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. It is one of my all time favorite movies. With that in mind, it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you a new family member,
GEORGE BAILEY a/k/a Bailey. This isn't a great picture of Bailey but it's tough to get a shot of him when he isn't on the run!
And to keep him company, his sister, HOLLY! I wanted to name her Zuzu. But I was outvoted.
I have been whining for some time now about getting a cat. I mean, what's a quilter without a cat or two or three??? :) We had a wonderful cocker spaniel, Sanderson, who was with us for fifteen years. After he died, we decided we didn't want another dog because what dog could top our Sanderson?? I have always loved cats but my husband had never had a cat and he was a little skittish about the whole idea.
At Thanksgiving, we were at my "little" brother, Mike's house and his family recently got 2 kittens to replace their cat, Gus, who had recently died. That's when the "whining campaign" began in earnest.
My son, Alex, arrived home from college on Saturday with these two cuties! The vet clinic where he got them did not want them separated so he took them both. They are almost 4 months old. My husband has already taken about 1000 pictures of them. Needless to say, he is now in love. This has to be the best Christmas present I have received in years!!!
