Poor Tiger Lily

We let Acacia's cat "Tiger Lily" out for the evening about a week ago and didn't see her for about 2 days. She finally showed up in the backyard and was very lethargic and meowed/groaned whenever she was picked up. We saw a lump on her right side and brought her into the vet. We came to find out she had 3 broken ribs and a bruised heart. We thought maybe she was hit by a motorcycle or something, but the vet thinks she was either kicked really hard or hit by some blunt object. She was in the animal hospital for 5 days and we were really worried about her. We've already buried 2 of the girls kittens and didn't want the same fate for this one. We were able to take her home on the 5th day and she seems so much better. I have to give her antibiotics and antiinflammatories for 7 days. She has to wear that bandage around her rib cage for 7 days also. We are very glad to have "Tiger Lilly" back and it looks like she is on the road to recovery.

"Princess Party"

Well,after a couple weeks of trying to schedule a birthday party for Anna and her school friends it finally happened. Of course it was a Princess party. It was a nice little gathering of young up and coming Divas primed for some Princessing around.
Oh my gosh, there she is!!! She looks just like an angel with that amazing glow about her.

So there's this princess that walks into a castle and tries to order a drink at the ball...... Oh, I've heard this one, it is so funny!

The princesses all had to search the yard for a princess shoe that they got to keep. How great is that?!

As we all know there can't just be princesses, so we had batman too. He's kinda like a prince, sort of.
Chocolate..........Oh, sweet chocolate. HA HA HA HA HA.... MMMMMMMMMMM. Hey, can I have some more? Mommmmmmmmmmmmmm can I have some more chocolate? All the divas got to decorate their own cupcakes. Don't worry all the kids had to give up their keys since they were drunk on chocolate. Happy Princess Birthday Party!!!

Anna's 5th Birthday

Our little girl is now 5 years old and she is already a DIVA. Anna raced down stairs to a table full of gifts and sat down for her birthday breakfast. Mom bought her the perfect gifts-Princess dresses. Anna will wear the same princess dress for weeks. The Thais love it!!!
Whats for breakfast Mom? How about a birthday cupcake to start the day.
Anna tells me that it is all about accessorizing. YOU GO GIRL!
Acacia likes to get in the mix and help with fashion tips too. Anna received 3 other Disney princess outfits for her wearing pleasure.
"There's no place like home", "There's no place like home" Unfortunately the shoes are a little on the narrow side and Anna has wide feet so it looks like she has swollen feet. She walks a little funny in them too. Anna, do the shoes hurt your feet? No..... They're perfect.
Thanks Mom and Dad this was the best birthday ever. I can't believe what great parents you are!!! I mean anybody would be lucky to have you as parents, I can't say enough. I feel honored to be your daughter. Oh, honey please stop you are embarrassing me.
