My kittens

This is Chester as a kitten...she is so cute!

Here are some more of my kittens...I really miss Chester and her "gray kitten" :(

My kittens

I just wanted to show you pics of my kittens, or Chester's kittens. We gave away the gray one I showed you, but we are keeping the orange one, we named him Oliver.


From today I am going to start a "CHRISTMAS COUNT DOWN" So each day I will (in big letters) put "There is so-and-so many days until Christmas" so here it is:


I am doing this so I can be reminded that I need to do my Christmas shopping (or Christmas making) BEFORE Christmas. And I will get more excited for it. :)

Just as
"Samarah" said every time I think of Christmas, it puts a smile to my face! :)

Settling down

Phew! I am finally ready to just have a normal life again! with all my family coming up here and Thanksgiving! I am so glad for it to be back to normal!

My Dad came up with this really great idea! He said that since (as you know) my Mom is having a baby, we definitely won't have enough room for us all...we don't have enough room for just us! So, my Dad had this idea that we could make a room down in the garage! It would be bigger than my Mom and Dad's room and me and my brother Anthony would share it! So then the new baby would have our old room. We would paint it and put carpet and put up dry wall! Oh! I am soooo excited! I was hoping that my dad would put a dry wall up to split the room but it wouldn't work.

Anyway, I asked my mom's friend (she is good with colors and did a whole blog post on colors and what moods they bring in a room I am going to post that on here so you all can see!) My dad thought about putting a stand up shower in there and it already has a sink and stuff, I'm not sure that we would do but, maybe only one of us would go down there not sure...

Here is the color/mood thing:

- Makes you feel hungry, a stimulate, raises blood pressure, produces feeling of anger, and raises energy levels, tends to draw people together and stimulate conversations- not the best choice for bedrooms, but works great in moderation in a dining room or a kitchen.

- Also a simulate color. It often makes you feel awake and energized, can make a room seem welcoming, but also tends to make people feel frustrated. Again, not a very good choice as the primary color in a bedroom, but works nicely in a kitchen, bathroom, or dining room.

-Know for it's calming, relaxing, and serene qualities. It brings blood pressure down, and slows the heart rate. This is a wonderful color for bedrooms, bathrooms, family rooms, and living rooms. This is a tricky color to work with though to get the desired effect. Dark blues can produce feelings of sadness, while very light pastel blues can make a room feel cold. Try to work with warmer, softer tones of blue like turquoise, or periwinkle for example.

- Also know to be relaxing and calming, and is actually considered the most restful color for the eye. Because of this, it is a great color for any room of the house. It is refreshing and cheerful, but not a stimulant.

- The darker hues are dramatic, sophisticated, rich, and produces moods of creativity.

The lighter tones are warm and restful, similar to blues.

-produces feelings of excitement, energy, and enthusiasm. Not a good idea for a bedroom or a living room if you want a relaxing environment, but great for an exercise room!

Black- Adds depth, grounds the color scheme, and very versatile. Not recommended as the primary color for your walls, but great as an accent color.

- Once again very versatile, and great as an accent color. White walls tend to make a room seem incomplete and expansive, and bring out feelings of frustration.

and brown- Very neutral colors that are warm and relaxing when used in moderation. Use the darker tones in moderation as to not add a "heaviness" to the room, which evokes a depressive mood.


So, I really want green in my room, I posted a comment her blog and asked her what she recommended for colors in my room. I'm waiting for her to email me back.

Well I hope ya all have a great rest of the evening!

Here is the Picture of the Cake (it was the sample one they put clouds on it I didn't)

Rainbow cake

Hey, this is a recipe I made at my Aunts house. It was so good I thought I would post it one here too. Here's a picture of it too. :)

1 box of cake mix

All of the things you need to make the cake

4 different flavors of Jell-O gelatin mix (I used cherry, orange, lime and berry blue.) oh yes, and whatever you do, don't use grape! lol I am not sure myself, I think maybe the flavor of maybe the color...

2 16 oz cans of frosting, make sure you do get two because I got one bigger one and it was DEFINITELY NOT enough!

butter, or whatever you use to greasing the pans (we also floured it)

Circle pans, four if you have that many or you can bake two at a time.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix following directions on cake box. Divide batter equally into 4 bowls, about 1 cup per bowl.

2. Mix 1 tablespoon Jell-O powder into each bowl, one color per bowl. stir until blended. Feel free to add a little bit more to the bowl if it's not as bright as you would like.

3.Pour batter into greased and floured round cake pans, 1 color per pan. Put the pans in the oven for 15 min. Or until the cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool for 5 minutes then remove from pans. When all are completely cooled, spread yellow frosting between each layers ( you can buy yellow frosting or use food coloring) Cover outside with blue frosting ( they say to put 6 drops of food coloring but I put one it it was dark enough)

And there you have it! lol hope whoever makes it, loves it! :)
