Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, right? No, it's what we did on Sunday. I noticed in the paper that the Catfederacy Cat Show was going to happen at the Gettysburg Middle School this past Sunday. This might not have been an item of interest to many of you, but you don't hang out with Atlee and Greeley. These two sometimes communicate to each other in some secret meow based language. Atlee brought her purse full of Webkinz cats. She's the Paris Hilton of Gettysburg.
Inside? There were cats. Lots and lots and lots of cats. This lady was nice enough to let us pet her cat.
Greeley did not believe her when she told us her cat wouldn't scratch. Greeley has been hanging out with Corwin, who is a proactive scratcher of toddlers.
The girls mentioned in the van that it was a little odd to not have Shea along for the ride. Where was Shea? Shea decided he would rather help clean out a barn in the rain with his father instead of going to the cat show.
Too bad for Shea because the Cat Show Attendees were rewarded with Giant Peanut Butter Cups after a stop at Kennie's to pick up eggs. Why eggs?
Because Amy invited us over to dye eggs again this year! Do you remember my take on this? When invited to dye eggs at a friend's house, the answer should be an immediate, "Yes please!"
Dyeing Easter eggs is one of Atlee's favorite activities.
She takes it seriously. So seriously she only did four eggs in the time every one else did twelve. Then she was kind of disappointed that she only did four. I see more Easter egg dyeing in our near future.
Trinity is always helping Greeley. Thanks Trinity!
Our friend, Carrie, was making Emerson laugh. As soon as I wandered over with the camera? Nothing. Just this look where he seems to think Carrie's insane. Not so, not so. He was totally digging on Carrie if the giggles were any indication.
Greeley's approach is more quantity than quality.
When we returned home, Atlee made a catnip toy for Corwin out of a baby sock. The man at the cat show who sold us the cat nip was kind enough to share with us how to make a good cat toy. Corwin approved of the new toy.
And then? Then it was time for bed.
Why yes, there is another bed located under that top bunk. But they don't actually use Greeley's bed for sleeping. They sleep together in "Atlee's bed". Every night is like a sleep over!
What? More Emerson?
Thank you and good night! And don't forget to tip your blogger!
