Meet Lenore.....

This is Lenore, our new foster kitty. She is up for adoption through the Alachua County Humane Society. They have a building the size of our apartment with over 300 cats in one room! Needless to say, they needed foster homes, and Lenore has adjusted well to living with us.

She's under a year old, and when she came to the shelter she brought a litter of kittens! She was very thin and having trouble competing with all the other cats for food, so we're fattening her up for a few weeks. She's soaking up all the attention she can and eating like a horse!

Brooklyn checking out her new bunkmate. At first she was a little apprehensive, but now she's more relaxed, as the second picture shows:

Gobble Gobble! Some Thanksgiving pictures for your viewing pleasure: First up, Thursday in Apopka with Mike's family:

The women in the kitchen

Me and my sister in law, Kathleen. Don't worry, she actually loves me.

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.

Next, Friday with my family at my great-aunt and uncle's house in Dunnellon:
Me and my beautiful mommy

I used to swing on this swing when I was a wee lass. I hope Uncle Jerry will replace that rope before my children have a chance to swing on it!

Hoo-ee, this week was busy. I had three tests, and I already know that I got a 90 on one (!!!!), but I don't know about the others yet. Yesterday Mike and I got to go to the game. It was cold, but still fun to watch the Gators pound Western Carolina, 62-0. It was senior day, and here is Chris Leak (quarterback) being recognized:

Here he is again, about to make a pass:

Right before halftime:

We visited Mike's parents in their seats during halftime:

And here's our new prodigy quaterback, Tim Tebow. This boy is going to go places!

Today was spent doing some homework and relaxing. Our baby bearded dragons are getting bigger and bigger, and Brooklyn is quite taken with them:

Faith without works is about as useless as a screen door on a submarine...

Speaking of screen doors, Brooklyn is glad that the weather is once again nice enough to have ours open.
This morning our friends Ken and Sherri gave us their loveseat to make room for their new furniture, and we're loving it! It's just big enough to fit into our living room and give us some extra seating. I finally feel like we can have some people over and have them be comfortable. Other than that, this week has been really busy, but full of fun things, too. For Halloween we went to our church to help set up and run the "Hallelujah Night." Our children's director has a 7-week old baby, and I got to hold him for awhile while she ran around getting things together. He was soooo cute! He's a very mellow baby (why is it that the energetic mothers get the calm babies?) and he has the most beautiful brown skin and a full head of curly hair. I was glad to get my baby fix! Once the carnival started, Mike and I ran the snack booth, and I'm officially an expert snow-cone maker. By the end I was doing double-flavored cones like a pro! It was fun to see all the cute kids in their costumes. I was in Walgreens yesterday and they were already putting out Christmas stuff! Whatever happened to Thanksgiving?!?
