Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I have my baking things out in the kitchen while I wait for the cream cheese and the butter to warm up I thought I would come in and write you a note. I wish you all blessing upon blessing this day. I thought this was a good thought. 

"Almighty God humbled Himself, coming into the world like every other baby---through a mother's womb. Think of the humility! He was saying, "Everything is the reverse of what it appears. Don't be afraid. I know what I am doing." (Elisabeth Elliot)  I loved that when I read it this morning and I thought, what a better thought for this year. 

I did a little wood project. I thought he turned out cute. I have had fun decorating this house for Christmas. Sweet Haylen is coming home from the hospital today. Isn't that the nicest Christmas present ever? 

Meet our Christmas present, Miracle Max. He is a teenager kitty. Now he is ours. Its so nice to have a kitten in the house. When I was a little girl, I read a book about a young girl who wanted a Christmas kitty. I wish I could remember the name of it but my whole life I wished for a dog or a cat for Christmas. I know silly, but it was always a secret wish. I should wish I suppose for a new car, But for me, I would rather have a animal. 

Peter and Belle sent me a video of a kitty that had showed up at their door. They asked if I wanted it. I thought it was too pretty to be out in the cold. They took it to the emergency vet to see if he had been chipped and he wasn't. They brought him to us, and he is our cat. (People dump cats at the apartment where Peter lives because the shelters are all full.) 

He loves my hooking stand. He is really just a nice cat. Sasha doesn't think so though. She just glares at him. I think though they may end up being friends. She needed something to herd since we moved and there are no chickens to herd. She does try and keep him penned up. Which is good for her. If you have ever had a Border Collie they have to have a job or they get really depressed. So this helps her too. 
The funny thing about this kitty is a few weeks ago on the neighborhood app. A lady said she had these three kittens and she was going to get rid of them and she didn't know what she was going to do as the shelters were all full. I showed Ron the pictures of these kittens and I really wanted the kitty in the middle picture that looked a lot like Max. Ron said no, and that was that. Then a few days later, who do I get but Miracle Max, the cat in the middle picture. Or at least one that looks just like that picture. So I am pretty happy about it. Ron just shook his head, because this has happened so many times in our married life. The really funny thing, Max likes Ron best. So Ron was hooked by his little kitty cat personality first. Max is really smart, he knows what side his bread is buttered on. 

Here are a few pictures from the last two months. Merry Christmas from Me to You.

Its been a wild year, So many good things. Three new babies. A new daughter to love. A future daughter to love and a new house and a new neighborhood. All of these things are gifts that I don't deserve and yet I can say I am very thankful to God for the blessings He has allowed in our life this year. 

Merry Christmas,

I love that you got a kitty! So, who named him? I've been wondering who would make a Princess Bride ref.
