niagara and kittens!

so much to share.. I dont know where to start!
Our Niagara ARt Sisters retreat was sooo much fun and it went so fast!
seems we had just gotten there and then it was time to go..
We all had a great time, it was so much fun to hang out creating with such special women.
I have a ton of pictures to share, but I am feeling totally unorganized.
So I need to figure out a plan of attack.
It would help to have a plan even before you get there and start taking pictures.
But I dont think like that!
So I shall begin with this is were we went!
This wonderful cottage at Niagara on the Lake Cananda.
Sandy found this for us last year and was able to rent it again this year.
Sandy is awesome. She really worked hard putting all of this together for us.
Thank you so much Sandy!
Heres a picture of all of us. I'm sure each of the girls are blogging about our trip..
so click on the links and check out what they have to say..
I'm sure they will do a better job then I telling you about our fun time together.
They are much more focused then I am! Arent they all lovely!
and me!
But dont worry, I will be blogging about our weekend.. Tomorrow!
but I'm distracted by this tonight!!!!!

I came home from work tonight and found 6 little babies
had been delivered on my hubbys afghan on the couch this afternoon!
I missed the whole blessed event!!
But I do think Figgy helped out again..
Hes loving frannie and their babies just like he did last time.
I was hoping to be here and was gonna take a video to show you!
Oh well.. perhaps youve been spared the gory details!
One thing I will tell you now about the Niagara retreat is that I stayed up til 2:30 am both nights and was up by 7:30 both mornings and I am still exhausted 2 days later!
so I am going to bed in a minute and I will post more tomorrow..
Arent they the cutest freaken little things??!!
Only 6 this time.. so much more manageble for her.
nightie night all.. I'll be back tomorrow!

Congratulations on your new babies! Obviously Fanny and Figgy feel very comfortable to have given birth out in the open like that! Beautiful little fur babies.

I'm late for work, but they have to understand why... I just couldn't resist the word kittens on your blog!
They are absolutely adorable and I'm anxious to see what colours they'll grow up to have. Franny is chocolate point isn't she?

Vivian! So glad you are back! Catch your breath and then share all! Your cats are like people. I did not know cats act like a couple of parents when litters are born. Fascinating - and cute! Rest well my friend! E

Oh Viv - how sweet! I just love having new little ones on our farm too... any kind of little ones.. (okay - except for mice!)

Kai said...

Oooooooh! Look at those proud parents loving their darling kitty-babies! I'm DROOLING over here! I have to tell you, Viv, I'd get ZERO done with kittens in the house 'cause I'd be stopping every 2 seconds to go LOOK at them again. Hopeless, aren't I? LOL! The retreat: Gorgeous place you all stayed! WOW! And what a pretty group of ladies. I'm so glad you had a good time. You deserve it! LOVE YOU, VIV!

Your girls trip looks like it was so fun! I follow a few of your blogs because I just love your style and talent! I so would love one of the lollishops dolls but not much in Etsy at the time. Give Jenny my best! Hope she'll be back to great health soon. :)
