A photo op

A gift from one of my cat-sitting clients, Donna.
It quickly became my favorite little cat dish.

Thank you so much, Donna.
"All mine!"

It's the perfect size and she's claimed it.

The family was all together for lunch last weekend. The weather was perfect and it was a good opportunity for a family photo. There are 10 of us now, soon to be 11. My daughter, Jess is due in September with their first child. Exciting times for Mike and Jess and of course, the whole family. Riley is very excited to have a cousin soon.
The retired guy, Allie, Jon, Mike, Deb, Jess,  baby-bump, John, Brittany, Riley & Bradley.

   Ruby (Audrey's sister) all grown up and a momma's girl. She's in for a surprise soon.

I have had to change how I view comments due to the fact that I can receive up to ten spam comments a day. Very annoying. You can comment as usual but I will have to ok it before it shows on blog. Thanks so much.

The mac and cheese was great. Easy recipe tomorrow.
