4 kittens

So, who do you think you are?

This is from June, 2011, and that is Pokey being a squishy little 9 month old baby, and dear Big Kitty being quite agreeable.

Pokey in 2017 was assigned to create an alter for Dia de los Muertos, and so he is building a shrine to Big Kitty. Along with this picture, we'll include things like chairs he liked to sleep in, kitty treats, and sugar skulls. Such a good kitty.

Comida, porque me gusta.

Look at all that nice Spanish.

I took a photo of this unusually big flower:

but I didn't really capture the context. There were no other flowers in the landscaping, so it really was quite surprising.

Under the house kitty.

Ace wears my old Annie dress:

When Hawaii was four, she'd never seen Annie, and could not be coaxed to put on the stiff, scratchy Annie dress. When Hawaii was 5 1/2, we bought Annie for our first drive to Montana. We instituted a rule that you could only watch Annie once a day, she loved it so much. When we got home, Hawaii went to put on the dress, but it was too small, which was kind of sad.

At age three, Ace tried on the dress a year ago, and it was too small for her, as well, which was a bit confusing. But then she lengthened and became less toddler and more kid, and now the dress fits.

September, 1982.

In the car:
Ace: My favorite marker is running out of ink!
Me: Are you coloring in the car?
Ace, so smoothly: Don't worry about it.
Me: Ha. But are you?
Ace, oh so smooth: It's okay. Don't worry about it.

(I wasn't worried. I was just checking. The point is that I got out-smoothed by my four year old.)

"We're all caterpillars."

"Not me, I'm a frog!"

You all are taking forEVER.

I'm starting to lose my patience. Come ON.

Rascal! Come sit on Ace!

We'll be a sandwich! Rascal!

Rascal just could not be pursuaded to come round out the stack.

KIDS! I'm losing my patience! Come ON!

Pokey improvises cool origami.

Phrases that are fun to deliver in jest when you're enjoying yourself:
1. Who do you think you are?
2. Don't worry about it!
3. You think you're better than me?

Jammies and I walked downtown for our eigth anniversary.

Mama, what am I?

Let me see. What have you got on?

Why, you're a Bunnyfly. Of course.

And a builder of trains.

That's all I got, Ma.

Who do you think you are?

I like "Do you know who I am?" Preferably said with a punctuating chest thump.

Blume!!! As a matter of fact, I DO know who you are!

But also I'm totally stealing that.
