This Face Could Sell Anything!

This is Sophia's commercial for Tofutti brand "cream cheese."

She can't have bread without something one it anymore...

WARNING: Political Video...You may actually feel inspired

Since this is a family blog, I should mention that George is completely opposed to this type of campaigning.

I, on the other hand, and just energized by the ability of a political candidate to engage parts of the American public that have felt like their voice hasn't mattered in a long, long time. I'm inspired that people are actually excited about voting.

Settling in

The lazy days of summer may have passed us by but Molly is making herself comfortable in her new home. In between being carried upside down from room to room, playing hide and seek behind the curtains and gleefully chasing Sophia and her red shoelace she finds some quiet time to rest and settle in.

Wet , Wet Saturday

The puddles were full this weekend thanks to the Tropical Storm blowing its way through the north. Sophia had no complaints though. She enjoyed slurping and swimming in the giant puddles.

This is our newest addition. It isn't the orange tabby named Patton that we planned on giving a happy home. The family that we were going to adopt Patton from changed their minds and we found this kitty at the SPCA in West Chester. She and a few other cats and kittens had been surrendered by an owner that couldn't take care of everyone. After a few days with the new kitty we've decided to name her Molly.

Patton was going to be named after General George S. Patton and there just aren't any tanker women in history to name a female cat after. We played around with a few girly names and decided to stick with the historical reference and call her Molly as a nod to Mary Hayes McCauly (better knows as Molly Pitcher). An artillery wife is as close as we could get.

Her first weekend at the Schwartz family was great. She made herself comfortable with Soph and the Mommer. Geo was drilling so she didn't meet the Dadder until Sunday evening. (I'm adding this as an edit to the original post...for those of you scratching your heads about the date). By bedtime it was conclusive:

George is allergic to Molly.

Oh the drama....
