Our little girl, Lily

Since the cats got their lengthy introduction I felt Lily needed a little more said about her....

Lily is 2 1/2 and a bundle of fun and energy! She came into our lives on November 3rd, 2005 and since then she has made our lives complete. Her personality is fun, sweet and rambunctious at times. She also tends to be a bit of a Drama Queen and on occasion, shy. Lately she seems to be blossoming out of her shy shell and talks to EVERYONE when we are out and about. (But don't try to hug her or pick her up, right Uncle J??!!) I always tell people she talks from the minute she wakes up until the minute she goes to sleep. Seriously she talks all day long!

Some of her likes are playing at the park, music, Fisher Price Little People and most especially her doll Abby. So far this summer she has LOVED anything to do with water - the pool, fountain at the park, slides and water areas at Sesame Place.
Life with Lily can be exhausting but it is the best job in the world!!!

Some more introductions

I really don't know how I could forget to introduce some other members of our family.....some furry members!! I know most people reading will know all about them but I figured you never know who will stumble across this blog. In addition to a 2 1/2 year old little girl we also have 4, yes 4, furry kitty cats. Their names are Annie, Colby, Jack, and Megan. I feel a little sad today. I was looking through my pictures to find some to post of our cats and sure enough EVERY picture is of Lily. I can't seem to scrounge up many of the cats on my computer anymore. I managed to find one of Colby and one of Annie AND Lily so I will attempt posting them at first. I will work on getting some of Jack and Megan later this week!

Here is Colby, the Troublemaker

and Annie, the extra large 18 pounder!

So there are 2 of the family cats. More to come on them in the future, I am sure!

Welcome to my blog!!

I am very excited to be posting my very first post on my new blog!! I must give all the credit to my very clever and great sister. I had thought about starting a blog about a year ago but it never really happened. Since then my sister started hers and it has been taking off!! I really have enjoyed reading it several times a day, looking at pictures and hearing the latest news about the family and especially "The Nephew". I thought it was time I started a blog of my own. I think it will be a great way for family and friends to see what we have been up to in our daily life.
So please come back and read often. Be sure to post some comments too. I will be working a lot on the set-up since I am very new at this right now but I know my sister will help me with it. I also have to say my posts will most likely not be as witty and clever as my sister's but HEY! I will give it a try!
