Update and BIG birthday!

Have you missed me?
I am STILL packing!
I can't believe how busy it is keeping me....

everything went through with the house
in Wisconsin....
the moving company will be here on Monday
morning and we will leave for WI right
after we finish loading.

Hard to believe -- everything is going

This last weekend Bailey 
(you all remember Bailey, right?)
ran in the state Hershey's track meet
in North Dakota!

She did an awesome job!
3rd place in the 200
5th place in the soft ball throw
2nd place in the 4x100 relay!

We are SO proud of her!

In the midst of all this mess at 
our house we are still going to 
celebrate today....
it is Forrest's 17th birthday!

He is an awesome kitty brother!

Happy 17th Birthday, Forrest!

Sorry I haven't been around much 
but will be back soon....
please don't forget me!

Later -- Remington --
soon to be a in a new home....
-- out!

BTW -- we have been getting a lot of rain too....

I mean A LOT!
ha ha!
(FYI -- the above pic has been
altered....isn't photoshop great?)

Congratulations to Bailey!

Remington, how can you imagine we could forget you?
But yes, you are moving fast! I hope things keep going smoothly.

Wow Remington, a lot has been happening, new changes coming up and rain. And your human, Bailey sure did well in her competitions. Plus, Forest turned 17! Time passes and we never think things will change, and suddenly, everything is different. But we are glad you are always out there in bloggerland:) Don't ever change that!

Sam and Pippen said...

That's a pawesome hat, dude! Good luck with all the packing and hope the move goes smoothly.

Happy Barkday, Forest! Our kitteh brother is also 17...

Packing is not fun! Ask me-I even moved my garden rocks and whiskey barrels full of dirt! Thank goodness we were farmers and had a loader and trucks and didn't move more than 10 miles each time. Now as far as unpacking-that's a whole different story!! Good to see you again.♥♫

Of course, we have missed you. We were worried about you and your family with all the flooding. Congrats on the new house and good luck with the big move. We will cross our paws that all goes smoothly for you.

Congrats too to Bailey - job well done. And love that smile:)

Happy Birthday to Forrest!

Remington, my sweet and very special pal(dare I say boyfriend?). I miss you terribly, but I understand how busy you must be and I am dreaming of sitting on your deck watching the sunset, perhaps sharing an ice cream or an apple. I miss going for walks with you, going for ice cream, playing football. My heart aches for you. Please take your time in packing your things and have a safe trip. Call me when you can please.

Happy Birthday to Forrest and a big congratulations to Bailey!
