But any how, on a real happy note: Sam graduated from RIP on Dec. 19th! We're so proud of him... Unfortunately, we didn't take many pics of his ceremony at all, but here are the ones we did take

Thanks to sneaky Andrea, we got this picture

Sams at home with us now, and we're thoroughly enjoying having him here:) He's worked and trained so hard, he deserves a couple weeks of break.
~The latest news in the kittyland is that Pards older sisters General (pictured howling)
and Boots had the adventure of their lives last week~ Andrea took them to Church, and tried to find homes for them. As you can see, they didn't enjoy the ride... But thankfullly, little Boots, the oldest of all of them, got a home... A real nice chap adopted it. So General came home by herself, and we thought that was all that came of Andrea's trip to Church... But the very next day I was awakened by a phone call from a guy who had been at the Church the day before. He talked to his parents about the kittens that needed homes, and they decided that they wanted one... And guess which one! - Yup, little Pard. For some strange reason, they decided that they wanted her, even though they've never actually seen her. The sad part is, she'll be going to Oklahoma, where I'll probably never see her again... But the good part about her adoption is that for one, she'll actually have a home (a good home) and that she'll be a farm cat-- she deserves to be a country cat.
So anyway, that is my little story about the kitties.
I will miss Pard, but I am so glad that she got a home. I'm just hoping that when they come to pick her up in the beginning of january, that they wont change their minds when they see the other "cuter" brother and sister.
Anyhow, this blog is awfully long.
Hope everyone reading this gets at least some snow~ If so, enjoy it for me!

Meet Pard, the most darling babe ever...

This is Pard again (on the left) and her sis General. They love climbing up on the book shelves

In this pic their brother Ranger is wanting to join them.

It's been a good month and 3 days since the babes were born, (they were born on veterans day)and for various reasons, I haven't gotten any good pictures yet... But this picture was taken by one of us during thanksgiving break, and I finally got it downloaded today... I couldn't resist putting it up any longer.

This one's name is Ranger. He's the only boy.
Till I get some more pics of the rest, enjoy this one! ~ And if anyone reads this tonight, go and look a the moon! It's gonna be the biggest full moon of the year i believe.

Happiness Is...

Happiness is-- having Sam home! He totally suprised us, the sneaky guy. I talked to him just yesterday, and we talked about the possibility of him coming down for the weekend. It sounded highly unlikely that we would see him... And then poof! He's here! And I'm so glad. I don't think I could've waited to see him till mid December. We love you SAM! Even though you are too sly and sneaky.
Wish one and all an awesome, refreshing Thanksgiving weekend.

P.S. Happiness is... not only having Sam at home, but also: not having any school for 5 days!

Nursing School

So I'm officially accepted into the Nursing program for January 09... I am still in Shock. I didn't think I was going to get in until next fall because I hadn't met one of the requirements. But I had to try. So they had a meeting and decided to let me in! Yeah.
And Sam is the middle of the most intense and difficult 4 days of his training. If any one reads this, please pray for him.
Kitty is hugely pregnant, but so far no babies have come. We've decided to name them Obama, McCain, Palin, and Biden. If there's more than four, well, maybe we'll name the 5th one Hillary.
That's all the news I can think of right now.

#1 SAU finally hired someone to get rid of the skunks. yay!
#2 Babe Kitty is pregnant

#3 It's midterm break- I survived my exams! :)
#4 Sam has been home for 6 aweome days!
#5 I still haven't put up the hummingbird feeder- I'm so evil.
#6 It has been in the 80s here in TN.(and I'm real tired of it.)
#7 Diana is living with us now, and she's an awesome cook:)
#8 McCain and Palin need to take a hike. (that doesn't mean I'm pro Obama either)
Okay I think that's it for now.

Summer Happenings

So I'm really excited- We recently moved into another apartment, and we have a tiny little porch, with just enough space for flowers and bird feeders! And like I told my mom I really wanted a hummingbird feeder... So nothing happened for a couple days, and I had kinda put it off my mind. I tried to stay away from looking out the double glass doors, so that I wouldn't have to think about my poor hummingbirds coming to our window and finding nothing(we had seen them come our first day, and every once in a while since then, only to leave after finding out that our flowers didn't have much to offer), but this Sabbath, my mom went to visit a friends house, and she came back- with a hummingbird feeder! Yeah, i was happy!
So anyway, there's a lot more stuff of "substance" going on these days, like boring math classes, skunks crowding our town, and long days spent thinking about Sam, who I haven't seen in 2 months and 2 days, but I thought I would just tell the birdie story this time. Next time I'll have to write about my first baseball game that I ever attended! It was super awesome!
I'm not too happy about the summer going by as fast as it has been, but so far I haven't found a way to make it slow down:(
If anyone besides myself is reading this, I hope you're doing well;) Cheers!

Today is Diana's birthday... And time keeps flying by. Spring break is at the end of this month, and before I know it, this semester will be over too! Yeah!
"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Phil. 3:14
Sometimes, I'd rather do anything but study. But I gotta remember the big picture... I try.
I just gotta take it all one day at a time.
Adrian and Sam are officially Bernals now... And I can't wait till I'm one officially too:)
