Guess what we got for our 10 Year Anniversary?

Diamond had five kittens!

We set up a nice secluded area for her in one of our bathrooms. When she started showing the signs of labor we made sure she was there. Well, she did NOT want to have her babies in a secluded area. She insisted on sitting with Rob. Rob set her on a paper sack and towel next to him and pet her. She was quite content. We were watching a video and she was resting. Then she started being quite interested in THAT area. Before I could get the laundry basket fixed up for her she had the first one. A little black bundle. (Actually it was bigger than we expected.)

And she missed the towel and paper. Good thing I had lysol and an old couch!

Diamonds Babies No 2 052807
Her second was a little tabby. Notice she was moved to the basket!

Diamonds Babies No 3 052807
Her third was a Grey one. (You can't really make her out too well, but mommy is licking her.) The fourth and fifth were a calico and then a little buff colored one.

Diamonds Babies Kids React 052807
The fifth one got stuck in the birth canal. Daddy had to assist. The kids were worried. Mom ended up holding Diamond while Daddy delivered the baby. We weren't sure the baby would make it. Daddy ended up doing a little CPR on the kitten. She/He seems to be doing fine now.

Here are some pictures of Diamond all done and resting. They've since been relocated to the secluded area in the bathroom. Diamond is proving to be quite a nice mommy. She had some practice when we took in Rascal last year. She would clean her and care for her.

Robbie Makes Honor Roll

Robbie Honor Roll 052307
Originally uploaded by momjeeps.

Robbie made all A's with one B in English. I actually disagree with the B grade, but I'm not the teacher. He received a D on two papers because he only wrote the correct action verb and did not underline it in the sentence. He had all the answers correct, but didn't follow all directions. So he knows his English. He has all A's in my book!

Here is Robbie's class with their certificates for Principals List, Honor Roll or Completion.

10th Anniversary Early - Nashville

Originally uploaded by momjeeps.

Rob and I had our first night away with no kids in a very long time this weekend. I picked Rob up at the Nashville airport. We checked into our hotel. OK it was really a motel, but it was recently remodelled and quite nice.

Then we went to the Loveless Cafe outside of Nashville. Absolutely worth the little bit of drive. Rob had the fried chicken, greens and fried okra. I had the pulled pork on corn hoe cakes with homemade creamed corn and carmel sweet potatoes. Fantastic food! And not bad prices either. If you do make it to Nashville and decide to go there, be ready for a 45 minute wait for a table. They have several shops in their "motel" area to keep you occupied until your pager goes off for your table.

Next we went to downtown Nashville and walked around. We danced at the Wild Horse Saloon and had a line dancing lesson. We also walked by the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Music City Walk of Fame.

On Sunday we got up and drove down to Lynchburg and toured the Jack Daniel's Distillery. That was very enjoyable and the drive was beautiful too. Side note, if you want to buy a commemorative bottle of Jack while you are there, don't go on a Sunday. We had lunch at a BBQ place in town. The food was decent and prices were very reasonable.

We had a great time. Here are pictures.

10th Anniv Jack Daniels Oldest Building office 052007 web
This is the only building standing that was on the property in Jack Daniels Day. There is a safe in this office building that Jack kicked when he couldn't get it opened. This would end up being the death of him. He ended up with gangreen (sp?) in they leg that he injured. In our day today, they probably would have realized he had diabetes problems.
