Katie Kat

This little girl....


She's crazy about cats kittens.  Our 'kitten' is now a fat cat.  He still puts up with the attention the kids give him, but it's not the same.  Much to the kid's delight a little kitten has started to hang around our house.  "It" comes and goes as 'it' pleases.  (I think it belongs to our neighbors... aka Jacob, Emily and Meri) :)  Anyway... Katie loves the thing to pieces.  It's one way I can be sure she'll take a nap.. she drags the poor thing in, wraps it in a blanket and snuggles into bed.  Soon both are fast asleep! :) 
It's hard to believe she'll turn 6.  S-I-X in April.  That day can't come fast enough for her.  She's already doing a countdown.  First it's Jame's bday, then Carolyn's, then G. Gma Marx (who is turning 90!!! this year), A. Heather, Gma Linda, A. Jessica, Daddy's and then it's HER BIRTHDAY.
{ahem} Her kitten scratched her...
She loves to do art/craftsy things.  (both girls do actually).  This was the latest hit.  "Snow" painting.  Take equal amounts of glue and foam shaving cream.  You can also add food coloring.  It dries puffy. Looks like snow.  This particular picture is the start of the diamond she made me.  Quite the rock, huh?
Out of all 4 kids, she is the one who ended up with most of Mommy's genes.  She has two moles.. in the exact same spot as Daddy..so she got some of Daddy.  It's amazing to me, how 4 kids, from the same two people can be so different, yet so much alike.  (looks, personalities..)   It's what makes them so unique and special.

What a great kitty to be willing to be wrapped up...she's a keeper. ;-) I can't believe your little Katie is almost six...makes me feel like we both have been blogging for awhile.
