Manliness in question

Mom got a bright idea to get Christmas photos for the card this year with us dressed like various Christmas themed things...such as a reindeer, a santa, an elf, etc...She has many costumes for us to try. I was the first victim, and I did not cooperate at all. I felt violated with the flashy box continually blinding me, so I couldn't see what was coming next. Please don't think any less of me when you see these. I can't believe I'm posting, but I wanted to put a warning out to the other aware of the flashy box this time of year! No good can come from being treated like this...

I must say, I wanted to eat those gingerbread men on the top of this headband....they looked so yummy!
The elf hat was hideous! Can't you see the shame in my face at the outrageousness of it all?

I am utterly humilated by this point...what's up with that red ball on the that supposed to be my nose?

Please, please I'm begging you...for the love of cats everywhere....Put down the flashy box, and the costumes and just step away.

Thank you,

Mancats are Silly!

Devon is one crazy mancat. He tries to always be so suave about what he does, so it is funny to see him doing something silly, but trying to play it off. Here he is sitting on the kitchen island (does that make him an island cat?) with his front feet in a bowl. Just sitting there like nothing is weird about having your feet in a bowl. He's a nut!

What silly things have you been 'caught' doing lately?

Tasty Thursday

This is the human bean today. I had to sneak in here at night to post before the boys realize what I'm doing! This past summer, when I went to Wrightsville Beach to stay with some family, my cousin made a delicious pie for me. I wanted to share the recipe since it's close to the holidays when we will be cooking up a storm. I hope this pie can make an easy addition to your repertoire and make your holidays fun!! Enjoy!

I make this using Light Cool Whip, and it tastes just fine. I also think you could use the fat free sweetened condensed milk too, but I haven't tried that.

I love that I can make it the night before a dinner party and am ready to go...takes about 15 minutes.

Sometimes I make extra of the crust and hold it out to use as a topping on the slices when I serve...the crust is amazingly good. Who would have thought pretzels, butter and sugar would be so yummy?!

Don't forget, if you want to exchange Christmas cards, send your address to scanipe1 (at) nc (dot) rr (dot) com.

Happy Friday the 13th!

This photo has been shown before, but I thought it was appropriate since there are so many superstitious folks in the's your black cat on Friday the 13th!

Nearly Wordless Wednesday

It won't be long before we are heading home for the holidays. Tanner usually joins us at my parents for Christmas, so he doesn't have to miss his pills. He loves their house because they have many delicious plants around. I have to keep a close eye on him!

Toy Review

This is a favorite toy at our house. Tanner got this for his birthday one year, and loves it. It looks a bit silly, but it squeaks when it moves or bounces. The string is elastic, so it is very springy, and the ribbons at the bottom just drive the boys crazy!

I keep it put away when we aren't playing with it because Tanner likes to chew the strings until they break or he eats them!

I find that putting toys out of sight is a good way to spark new interest in old toys. How do you keep the spark alive with your cats and their toys?

Mancats need the Spa

My mancats are turning into Womancats before my very eyes! Their nails are snagging on toys and pricking their blankets when they knead their paws. My mancats need the spa!

Tanner (i.e. Tanneisha) is the only one willing to show off his, umm her, nails for you today.

Tanneisha keeps her eyes closed very tightly when getting her nails done, so that flying nail pieces don't blind her! She is very dramatic. I will be glad to have my Tanner back :)

Devonna and Smokeisha decided not to attend the spa this time, but don't worry their time is coming! The spa is running a three for one special this week, with free ear cleanings and chin combs and eye crusty removal too. What girl doesn't love a good day at the spa?

How often do you have to trim your kids nails? Do they tolerate it or put up a fight?

Devon's Halloween Recap

Devon was the most tolerant when it came to trying on costumes. He just sat on his pillow and watched tv while different hats were put on him. He loves attention, and is just a ham when it comes to the camera. Enjoy!

The other cats will be showcased later, and you will see that they are not the most cooperative of subjects. They could all learn from Devon...if you just sit there, it will be over quicker!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!!
