Went to the Blooming Festival in Cullman on Sunday with Kelli, Ms. Barbara and Rayray.  We had a great time.  The weather was wonderful!  It is held every year at St. Bernard Prep School in Cullman.  This is a Catholic school run by a brotherhood of Monks.  I overheard a girl of about 12 telling her younger sister..."We don't do that because we are not Catholic.  We are Christians."  Rachel and I had to laugh!

We finally got around to getting our kittens!  Meet Daryl and Merle...if you are a fan of "The Walking Dead," no need to explain!
They are so cute!  Merle is the black one and Daryl is the tabby.

They have adjusted to life in our crazy house just fine.  They love to be in the den with us.  They want to be wherever you are and just follow you around the house.  Look at those sleeping babies!

Even big brother Byebye is doing fairly well with them! (kind of freaky picture taken by L Bigdawes)
