A very busy weekend!

Well I thought I would share another couple of things with you as it has been a very busy weekend!  My son actually shares his birthday with his dad (he still says that when Max was born it was the best birthday present he ever got!).  So we also celebrated my wonderful husband's birthday too over the weekend.  So here he is with both the kids about to blow out his candles. 
 Also we added a new member to our little family over the weekend - and her name is Mittens. 

I surprised the kids and we picked her up at lunchtime on Sunday (they thought we weren't going to get her for another couple of days) and we brought her home.  She is everything that a kitten should be - full of beans and very naughty but also just adorable.  She is 3 months old and we adopted her from the pound.  It has been about 7 years since I last had a cat and now that she is with us I am just loving every minute of it!  I really missed not having a cat around the house.  I have been sewing this morning and she has been 'helping' me with the fabrics and treads and has been very curious about everything I have been doing.  She certainly does bring a smile to my face. 
Happy sewing!
