Take a Photo of Sonora Day – 1/20/2019

I think today was “Take a Photo of Sonora Day”. I have an album with tons of photos of her in two different outfits and different poses. I guess I can’t complain because my little girl is growing up and very cute.

I’m not sure what she is laughing at, but its funny!

If she can pose with a cat, its a win!

Coatrack has had enough and is providing a playful bite to let her know.

Snow – 1/12/2019

We love the snow partly because we don’t get enough of it. Sometimes, we even do crazy things! A look at how deep the snow is.

That is a canoe I forgot to put away before the snow.

I was too lazy to put on socks or shoes, so I went shopping in sandals. There was wet snow everywhere so my feet were a bit cold, but not too bad.

And a video of our poor cats.

Christmas Cat – 12/15/2018

Our oldest cat, Coatrack is on his second Christmas season with us. He wanted to celebrate. Starting by being on top of the coats.

The previous night, Danelle wasn’t sleeping well, so she slept on the sofa. She heard Coatrack in the Christmas tree. I wanted to see this for myself, so I put some lunch meat in the tree to see him climb.

Coatrack In The Van

Coatrack, our large tuxedo colored cat is still very new to us. We’ve had him for a year and I don’t remember him ever going in the car except when we brought him home and maybe a followup vet trip. So I brought him with Corvin and I for a quick out and back trip. He was very curious at first as most cats are.

The silly guy climbed all around, even ending up on the dash!

His eagerness quickly wore off and he was generally unsettled. When I brought him back in the house, he was much happier!

Sonora’s New Floor – 12/2/2018

Earlier in the week, Danelle and I were at Lowes and came across some extremely discounted flooring. Sonora has wanted a wood floor in her room for a while, so we decided to give it a go. We started Friday night ripping out all of the existing carpet in her room. Then we had to remove the tack strips and staples that didn’t come up with the carpet. Now we’re starting from a bare floor in an empty room. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but we finished by Sunday night and moved all of the furniture back in her room. Also keep in mind we did other things this weekend. It looks hard, but with Danelle, you can do almost anything!

Cats will sit wherever its inconvenient. I think this is a law.

Danelle trimming up a board.

Sonora approves of the first few rows.

Looking rather complete.

Transitions like doors are the hardest part!

Measure once, cut twice?

A look at the gap. The quarter round will cover it all up.

Coatrack is new and the family can’t get enough of him!

Didn’t get any finished photos, but I promise we finished in a weekend!
