Sometimes you just have to take a moment to laugh, be silly and enjoy the little things. I love opening up the Photo Booth program on my computer and calling the girls to join me. If you have kids, and you have photo booth, and you have never been silly with your kids with photo booth, WAIT NO LONGER!!! Your kids will love it and you will get some good laughs too! We laugh so much and so hard at all the silliness that comes along with this program!
Life has been busy and even hard around here. I'm here to explain where I have been the past few weeks.
The week of Thanksgiving we headed out to the Wichita Mountains and camped out all week. Yep, we are no sissies, we camped in a tent at the end of November! I'm pretty proud of us. ha
Anyhow, I took lots and lots of photos. When we got home and got settled back into everyday life I eventually uploaded the photos from our trip and made a really fun video. Just as I was finished with it, the hard drive on the computer went out and we lost pretty much the last 10 or so years of our recorded life. Photos, files, well, you know, a whole lot of stuff. I had not deleted the photos of our trip off of the camera chip, so I get to re-edit them and hopefully very soon will share a very small portion with you.
We also soon noticed our sweet little kitten MerryBell was getting a bloated looking tummy. We wormed her hoping for good results, but nothing changed. Her little belly just got larger. After a trip to the Vet, we brought her home with a death sentence. She had a virus and there was nothing that could be done for her. My girls have been such good little nurses over these past few days. They brought her food and water every 30 mins to an hour, and loved on her. She passed this morning. It was a hard morning. Love and tears during those final moments filled our living room as she took her last breaths. I know it's just a cat, but she was part of our family and our girls loved her dearly. We had her exactly 1 year to the day. How ironic is that. She was a rescue kitten, we gave her a home and loved on her for a whole year! Who knows, had she not been rescued her little life would probably been much shorter. We hope to get another kitten in the distant future, but for now, we will just cherish memories of our sweet MerryBell.
I plan on getting back to Friday Finds next week. I might even make a few post before then! Hope you all have a great weekend, it's gonna get cold out there, maybe even some ice! Stay warm and stay safe and come back real soon!
