Kitten profiles

All of the kittens are growing up and developing their own looks and personalities. There are three orange/white and three brown/white. We had thought there were three girls and three boys, but have since discovered there are four boys and two girls.

Here is Blaze. Blaze is a boy and he loves to wrestle with his siblings:


Here is Mogget. Mogget is the name of a cat in a book series that I love. The book Mogget is all white with green eyes, but this little guy is close. He is the noisiest of the bunch:


Here is Freckle. She is one of the girls. She likes catnip!


Here is Ostara. She is the other girl and the smallest of the bunch. Even though she is small, she is the most adventurous. She is always the first one out to play.


Here is Hershey. He was the first one to get a name because his little nose looks just like a Hershey kiss. He is very sweet and likes to curl up by your feet.


Here is Sucrose. We thought he was a girl and named him Sugar. When it turned out he was a boy, David joked that his name was Sucrose...and it has stuck so far. This guy is so sweet. He is by far the biggest of the bunch and he is the happiest cat I have ever seen. He loves his siblings, especially Hershey.

Easter egg challenge

A few weeks ago, I thought of a fun Easter tradition that Joe and I could have. It's called the Easter egg challenge. We've never done baskets or gifts for each other, but I really like having a few husband/wife holiday traditions and I'm excited to start this one. Here are the rules:

Each year, each of us gives the other an Easter gift.

Whatever it is must fit into an egg (like the plastic ones they sell this time of year). It doesn't matter what size the egg is.

The egg can contain candy only if it is candy that wouldn't be purchased at the grocery store on any regular day.

The egg must be hidden to be found on Easter. It is up to the hider to decide how complicated the hunt will be. (Examples, hot/cold will work, one easy clue will work, a complicated series of clues will work).

It was fun, and kind of challenging to find something that Joe would like that would fit into a little plastic egg. I can't wait to find my egg tomorrow!
