Pretty, Pretty Princess

Whoever invented this game is a genius. A game in which little girls win jewelry and the winner is crowned the Pretty, Pretty Princess? Absolute genius.
Dora has all the jewelry because she was the only one playing.
She won, which is the way she likes it. :0) Don't let the "cute" fool you; this kid really plays to win, which can be tough when there are 7 older people in the house!

Introducing our newest additions!  Please welcome...

Abraham Delacey Giuseppe Casey Thomas O'Malley  (Tommy,  on the left) and Jenny-any-dots (Jenny, on the right)

When we moved, we decided Jackie (Juju) should be an outside cat.  She was not too keen on the idea, so we decided to bring her some friends.  A friend was trying desperately to get rid of 8 kittens, so we took 2 off her hands, hoping to fill JuJu's social void.  At first, it did not work very well.....

However she soon warmed to the idea of new little friends.  She has actually become much more affectionate since she's been outside, and since she adopted our sweet little kittens.  The other pets seem to enjoy the kittens, too.  Diego, especially, likes to play with them.

I especially like this picture.  It really shows the family resemblance, doncha think?

We have moved

Sorry I haven't posted in so long.   We moved to a nearby city and have been crazy busy!

We were completely exhausted from all of the packing, moving and unpacking...
...but we're finally finished!  We love our new home, it's nearer to our activities, and we were able to put all five girls in one bedroom!  Yay!  I really wanted this, hoping it would help them really bond tightly.  So far, so good.  The girls are already growing closer.  We have an empty bedroom that we use as a playroom, so their room just has 2 bunk beds, a twin bed and two dressers.  And it's not even crowded in there!  Thank you, Jesus!

I have uploaded lots of pictures onto this computer and will try to post more frequently.  I will post some pictures of what we have been doing the past few weeks.
