bubbly and lighthearted

Okay, just had to do a quick [I hope] update.

I’m sure most of you have heard of the kitty story, where Joshua, under a steroid-induced spell, stuffed our polydactyl kitten, Snickers, in the freezer and tried to hide it. Thank goodness she wasn’t in there long before Jon discovered her -- despite Josh’s best efforts to distract his attention from the refrigerator.

In short::: it must be hereditary

If you follow this link to a new Kodak album you can take a look at pictures snapped minutes ago at the sly little Nathan stowing same piteous cat in a birdcage.

Luckily, there weren’t any tweetys in it.

And while we are on the topic of funny stories – let’s keep this entry totally bubbly and lighthearted.

Kaitlynn is running for class Treasurer (her speech is tomorrow and elections are Monday) and the girls and I are sitting at the table coloring posters. Joshua, being the ever so helpful brother that he is, is ON the table coloring also. I didn’t catch it, but Halie must’ve done something to rile Josh, all of a sudden he stands up on the table and shrieks, “Halie Michael!”

What?!

Do we use his middle name when he’s causing trouble?

Not Joshua, he’s an angel….

Must be dad – he’s the only other Michael in the house…

Oh and yes… those are Star Wars underwear ;-)

Hi Josh,

Loved your picture album. Looks like - nothing can stop, Spider-man. Good to see the energy in those pic's.
Do I also see - you have "invented" a new type of cat carrier?
Have a good day kiddo.

Love,
Marian & Jerry : ^ )

Dear Joshua, Marian, Jon and Family-

Joshua made a darling "spiderman". Know that was fun for him. So happy his counts went up...way up... Fantastic! Thank you God.

You folks are an inspiration to us. You are survivors and that is wonderful! Keep up that "spunk". That is so good to see. When you get a chance, would you have someone take yourpictures, Marian and Jon, with Josh and then take one of the entire family together. I look forward to seeing that. Thanks.

How did Kaitlynn make out in the class officer race? Hope she got it! Love to all. Maureen
