Emily and Michael were in town this past weekend and stopped by the house. It was great to see their family and celebrate Piper's 4th birthday. Everyone had fun and can't wait for Thanksgiving!
Smokes was a trooper as he was being dragged around by Piper, hounded by Miles and "gently" pet by Nola. He was exhausted by the time they left, but can't wait for Thanksgiving to have some more fun!

Grill master Betsy got a bit distracted from time to time and ended up burning a couple of the weeners on the grill. She does cook a mean hotdog though! We had a very hoppin tailgate and met some really nice Spartan fans throughout the day.

Erin came home from Brooklyn to visit for the weekend. We went to Ihop for breakfast today and spent some quality time hanging out. We wandered through the bookstore and created my "to read" list for the next couple of months. It was nice to actually see her and not have to just talk on the phone. We had lots of fun catching up with each other and I can't wait to do it all again at Christmas. If I felt better and the economy was boomin I think I would be headed to Brooklyn to visit both Erin and Katrina! Oh.... and Congrats to Erin for getting a promotion at CNN!!!!!

The painters arrived at Mom and Dad's house on Monday which means Smokes and I have been displaced for a while. The doors to all rooms needed to be painted so I was left with no privacy and Smokes was left with free roaming of the house...thats not going to fly Smokes!!! So, in an effort to save Mom from having cat hair in her newly painted base boards Smokes has been locked up in the basement with all of the contents from the "old" house. He seems to be enjoying it and has set up a "nest" in the middle of Mom's Christmas wreath. Lovely Smokes....hey maybe while you are down there you should attempt to use that BIG yellow exercise ball.
