Montgomery Tourists

Today Emaline, her friend Rachel and I played tourists in Montgomery. Sadly, Emaline had never seen our state capital. We visited the Capitol building, the First White House of the Confederacy, Old Alabama Town, and a few other places along the way. Emaline's favorite thing was a resident cat we met at Old Alabama Town. Rachel really liked a beautiful pot-belly stove we saw in the Senate chamber. We all really liked the old dresses we saw. My favorite thing was the First White House. The furniture was incredibly beautiful. We had a great time!!

Kitties and Barbies

Of course Emaline has been playing with the kitties!! They cuddle and play together a little every day!! Emaline has been playing with her Barbies quite a bit lately. She has tons of clothes and accessories for her dolls. She surprised me today when showing me her favorite Barbie dress. It is a long gold and black evening gown. I can't describe the feeling of seeing her doll in that dress! I told her that it is a very special custom couture gown designed by Vicki Bacon!! Vicki made tons of clothes for my Barbies many years ago! They are beautiful and extremely well made!! They still look new thirty years after their design and fabrication!! It means so much to see Emaline enjoying them as much as I did!! Thanks Vicki!!

Driving and Playing Fetch

Uncle Lavelle is very brave!! He has been allowing Emaline to chauffeur him around the field behind Grandaddy's house!! I guess learning early is good, right!!

Midnight has become quite an interesting little fella!! His new favorite game is fetch!! He started bringing a little toy puff ball to me while we were at Daddy's. Now it has grown into full games of fetch!! We throw a little puff ball, and he will dart after it and bring it back. It is the funniest when he play-growls and tries to keep you from taking it. We have never had a cat who fetches before. The more puff balls he has, the better. He will horde them and meow at you!! We have always felt blessed to have such a great kitty like Linus!! Now we have two!! When Midnight is not crazy and playful, he is quite a loving little guy!! Emaline picked a great one!!:)
