Brawndo – 1/17/2020

We got a new cat and we named him Brawndo. If you’re wondering about the name, it came from my favorite movie, Idiocracy. Brawndo is a pure bred Maine Coon. We were picking him up from a breeder just west of Kansas City. We drove through an ice storm the night before to ensure that we could get him on time.

Enough of the car. We picked him up from Olga at EuroCoons. She was a bit more expensive than other breeders we talked to. When we go to her house, we could see how much she cared for the cats and were not disappointed by paying more for him.

And because the internet is all about cats and the post is about Brawndo, here are some photos of him!

So tiny!

Sonora is incredibly happy!

Corvin likes him too!

It didn’t take long for the two of them to become buddies.

Yep, he is adorable.

We have video of them playing.

Yes, I got Brawndo t-shirts for the family.

Christmas in KC – 12/23/2019

The best thing about Christmas is kids and family. This Christmas, we got both of them in spades. My sister Holly is in KC now, allowing us to see them more. David and Lindsay are just adorable!

We had a fantastic time hanging out as a family. Meals, and gifts exchanged, we also managed to stop for a group photo!

I got lots of wrestling time with David and Lindsay!

And we have a compilation of David saying silly things 🙂

Christmas Tree – 12/1/2019

We decided to get a real Christmas tree this year. Our first ever. We picked up Danelle’s dad and headed out to one of his friend’s farm in Washington, MO. It was extremely cold outside and we did get snow flurries while we looked for a tree.

Henry was colder than he wanted to admit.

After a long discussion of which tree. And could it support the cats climbing it, this one was picked. Corvin is cutting it down.

After the tree was packaged and we all paid, we took Henry out for lunch. He doesn’t get to eat out much and we wanted him to select. He landed on Mexican and we found a great place in Washington to eat. After we all got back home and settled, the tree was moved back inside. Coatrack had to check it out first!

And eventually we even decorated it. Overall, it was a great choice!
