Hello all.

Just want to give you all an up date. Life here is chaotic. My Mum has lost most of her marbles. Would like to call it “chemo brain” but I fear it is dementia or worse Alzheimer disease. The kitties are doing well, Mazie has been dealing with some GI issues but have been trying meds, probiotics and special diet to combat that. Bree has been having flare up of lung issues but dealing with that with antibiotics and steroids.  Abbe has some mast cell tumors we are removing before they become cancer, and Anne is just Anne with a bad back 🙂  we are doing well as a small family but Gram is taking a lot of my time, so little posting and/or commenting. Don’t think we have forgotten you all or don’t think about you often, you are all VERY close to our hearts. Thoughts of Blogville is often what keeps the sanity going 🙂

Holiday Tradions.

Here at Marty the Manx, our biggest holiday tradition is putting up the tree which you saw on my Wordless Wednesday post.  The Peeps in our family have a fun tradition of dressing up in their silly Christmas sweaters and making Christmas cookies every year. Here are a few pictures from this year.


Even cousin Maggie gets in on the sweater fun!
