We just got our newest addition....a six-toed kitty named Bocce. I know, we are crazy. Neither John or I are cat people...but our friends, Dan & Natalie, were desperate to get rid of a kitty. Bocce will strictly be an outdoor kitty...for rodent duty. We don't care for indoor pets at this point and my mom is very allergic. So, Bocce will probably not be handled much either! The kids always love chasing the Alanis' kitties and we will be using this as a tool to help teach the kids some responsibility...it should be an adventure!

John and I had a wonderful anniversary last weekend. He surprised me with Starbucks in bed....the perfect breakfast! I continued to surprise me with gifts....a digital photo frame and my fav, a framed & matted poem...from his very own heart! *sigh* He loves me.
Of course he had worked the night before, but I had to take the girls to Cali Jo's birthday pool party that morning, but as soon as I got home he went to bed for a few hours. Later we got our pics all taken with Grammy and Nana...the generation pics, ect. Afterwards it was a dash home to leave the kiddos with Nana and make it to our dinner reservation at the Plateau. Of course we didn't get to ours on time, but we made it to Dan & Natalies! They had made reservations a half hour after ours -their anniversary is in the same week as ours- so we combined our reservations and enjoyed a wonderful dinner overlooking the beautiful blue mountains! Once we finished dinner, we headed over to the church for couples bunco night...there were only two other couples so we visited and had coffee and dessert....so fun!
I love John so much and now that we have been married for seven years and together for nine, we are discovering more about each other than we ever thought we could. We continue to learn more and more about each other everyday and I love that!
