BREAKING NEWS....
 YESTERDAY There WERE painters all over inside my house painting our new windows.  Mom and I WERE  sequestered in my blog office for the duration.  You'd have been proud of  me, I was good...every so often I wood break into a chorus of 
Don't fence me In, written by my dear friends
Frankie and Ernie especially for me yesterday.  If you missed it here are the lyrics

NOW then... ♫ Don't Fence Madi In... Let her stretch out on her Steps to the UpStairs...♫
Don't Fence her in..♫ And to snooze in her Puddle underneath the Sun Light♫ Don't Fence her In♫ Begone pesky painters and release our darling Furrrrrend.♫ Don't Fence her In.... Let her Purrrrr and prowl all around her Casa... ♫ Don't Fence Madi In♫


Mom tried to get around to visit everybuddy...however; she was busy trying to
entertain me and clean up debris the painters left on the floor, between caulking and painting.
Mom freaks out worrying I'll eat something.  I keep telling her 
'if it don't smell like meat, this kitty won't eat'
Sincerely Madi your bfff

Mom and did have some fun activities planned for our confinement...of course there were 
pictures too stay tuned next week.

This Moment, See Beautiful


We are joining Sugar today for

Frisco and Mia have been officially siblings for one month as of December 4, 2015.
Before 12/4/15 they had never laid paws on each other.
We have enjoyed each moment human Sis has shared of their journey to becoming
best buddies.  Sis says every MOMENT with them is BEAUTIFUL

Frisco (l) Mia(r)
Human Sis sent these adorable photos earlier this week
She was on the exercise bike...Frisco was on the window perch...
then Mia jumps up from the rear startling Frisco (love the look on his face)
for some reason she thought she needed to groom him

 Sis says Frisco follows Mia all over the house whatever she does he does.
Of course he is 8 months old and still learning things and Mia (13 months) is a good
mentor.


Human SIS and BIL bought Frisco and Mia a brand new cat tree for Christmas.
It arrived last Saturday.  Evidently Mia knew exactly what it was and what to do.  She was
on it like greased lightning while BIL was still putting it together. Frisco was cautiously 
giving it a good sniff.

Mom is so happy SIS and BIL have two crazy pants kitties to each moment beautiful

Thursday (frosty) Tales

Top of the Frosty Morn to you all.  I'm dressed this way for a reason....
I would like to introduce you to some frosty, furry and fluffy friends who are currently living on my
stairs behind me......and on my mantle



These lovely snowpeeps are named after 3 friends whom, in spite of what you may have heard love snowpeeps


Mom has this huge bow with bells at the top of the stairs and one at the bottom
Belky the Bear is sitting in the stair basket.
Belky belonged to my human sis...NOW he is all mine.
Years ago, Belk, a local department store, had a limited edition Christmas bear every year.

SHOW AND TELL Card count #2

 This box contains some very precious pieces of ceramic art made by my Dad's Aunt Eula in 
1970!!!  Yep the only things in this house older than these pieces are 
MOM AND DAD!!
I'm told Aunt Eula (Dad's mom's sister) made them for Dad's Mom, who used them
for many, many  years before they were passed on to my family.
Mom told me my human sis always loved seeing the Nativity scene set up.  
GrandMa Margie set the scene up on her secretary.  She didn't have a barn for them; however, she bought some beautiful light blue velvet material that she arranged with folds to nestle the figurines.
They were quite magical almost like being in the sky!!.
When Mom first received them, she didn't have a barn so she set it up on the mantle.....
When my Sis married my BIL he made this barn for the very precious Nativity figurines
Mom knows for 100% sure GrandMa Margie would have loved to see her Nativity housed in this beautiful barn.

Each figurine's face is beautifully detailed... you may click on the picture to enlarge.
 Mom always enjoyed displaying the Nativity scene; however, once BIL made this barn
it made the figurines and their meaning even more special.  BIL did not have
a pattern or anything...Mom was so amazed at JUST how perfect the barn was for each piece
 Needless to say Mom is very honored to be the caretaker of this beautiful hand made Nativity Scene
and hand made barn.
Mom said I should tell you that I never, ever, no NEVER mess with any of these.
