Fa la la la la.... la la la la

We are all nestled in and cozy today.

We enjoyed putting up the rest of Christmas this weekend. With our surprise we woke up to about 6 inches of snow this morning! YaY! We were issued a blizzard warning last week and I only saw a few flakes. I was pretty bummed out over that.

Matt and I had a great weekend with family. We enjoyed some shopping, going out to dinner with family and watching this super cute movie~

(with the cutest kids in the world of course!)
Loved this cute show!

We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend with your families.

Introducing.... Sammy

Meet our new family member-
Sammy the cat.

This is a super sweet story. I truly believe this little man picked us.And is a little gift from above.

After the loss of my sweet cats Missy and Maverick, I was really sad with out an animal in our home...Although we did always have our neighbors cat "Salem" come over to our backyard to visit just about everyday for the past year. We like her and think she is a sweet cat. Plus I give her treats... I am a sucker for animals. I have always loved them.
Salem had just had a litter of kittens about a month prior to me loosing my kitties. She would still come over, just never with a kitten.

Until one day she brought us a "gift" that just so happened to be her kitten-our Sammy. We loved having him come visit us. She would seriously drop him off like we were baby sitters and then hours or a day later she would come pick him up. The neighbors were gone a lot and the cats were neglected for the most part. The Mama cat started to bring all three of her babies over to see us and get milk. They were too cute and sweet to pass up.

After fostering his Mom and siblings for a while. Sam was the only one left that needed a home. I just thought I was not really ready for another pet. Matt had found him a home a couple weeks ago, but I could not bear to give him up. It was fate. I do think this was the perfect way to ease into another pet. I have fallen in love with this sweet little cat.
