COT: Blu Christmas

 Its a blue blue Christmas...

 At my mom's our Princess Blu has been reunited with her 1/2 sister, Moxie (on left).
Moxie, also our Froggie's kitten, was born just a few months after Blu.
Moxie was the runt in a large litter, but, like her name says, she has Moxie.

 How do you tell these girls apart?

Easy...Moxie has a sweet round face, soft meow, and is very timid.
Blu has more of a sour face, sour meow, and (often) sour and take no crap off of anycat attitude. 

Love my Blu girl.

Son-Day: Away In A Manger

Away in a manger
Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay
The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side,
'Til morning is nigh.
Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray
Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there

I'm very weepy this time of year, the sweet love story, the sweet birth story, just moves me.
I hope everyone is able to enjoy this time of year when we remember and celebrate the birth of our dear Savior.
~God bless you and keep you and yours~

COT: Home Sweet Home

Our fine leader, Queen Uno, has settled in nicely at her old home place.

 As a kitten she was born at our house, 

then spent her first few months here at my mom's lake house, 

Uno spent all her time trying to get in the house, and was so happy when she returned to us, and was allowed in.  Uno has always been an 'inside/outside' kitty.

Now, a decade later, she is back. (And mom has mellowed enough to allow our girl inside.)

It has been said you can't go home again, but as you see, Queen Uno has. 

~All Hail Queen Uno~

~Long Live The Queen~

How blessed I am to have Uno in my life.
She is who I look for each time I come home, and am so thankful she is at mom's where kitty love abounds.
We are only there on weekends, and thanks to mom, I don't have to worry about Uno.
Long live my Queen.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season!

Son-Day: Carol of The Bells

Carol of The Bells

Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells

all seem to say, throw cares away

Christmas is here, bringing good cheer

To young and old, meek and the bold

From every village town, can you hear the sound

Can you see the light, through the dark

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,

all of them send, all without end

their joyful tone, to every home

Ding dong dong ding, ding dong dong ding

Ding dong dong ding ding dong dong ding

Oh how they proud, rasing the sound

o'er hill and dale, telling their tale

hear how they ring while people sing,

songs of good cheer, Christmas is here

From every village town, can you hear the sound

can you see the light through the dark

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

hear how they ring while people sing,

songs of good cheer, Christmas is here

Ding dong dong ding, ding dong dong ding

Ding dong dong ding ding dong dong ding

Christmas is here... ~God Bless~
