WCB: Happy Birthday Riley!!!

Yes, I know I tout this as a Wolf Hollow blog and haven't done a WH post in awhile, but I did want to send out birthday greetings to my not-so-baby-anymore boy Riley. I can't believe it was a year ago that I had given up hope of a friend's cat having an orange and white boy kitten only to have her tell me that night that the last kitten born was an orange and white male and was mine if I wanted him. YEAH I WANTED HIM! And then they sent me this:

Here he is, not even a day old. Who knew this sweet, helpless exterior held the soul of a rabble-rouser? I know I didn't! And now for a quick photo montage of his past year:

Riley at 6 weeks

Riley at 9 weeks

Riley at 6 months-One can see the mischievous glint in his eye.

Riley at 8 months-He likes to help me pic out photos for my blog!

Riley as he is today. He's a big, sweet boy who brings a lot of life to this house and I can't imagine my life without him. Thanks, Susan, for giving me such a precious gift. I just adore him!

Happy B-Day Riley from Aunt Kari! Oh, and tell your Mom she sucks for not keeping her numerous promises to update her Wolf Hollow blog. Or you can just bite her for me, that would be sufficient!

You know what? I wrote "lizard" when I meant to say "frog!" I knew that didn't seem right! You have those little frogs around your house, not lizards. Duh. I am clearly losing my mind.

heather, as i sit checking your blog yet again to see if youve updated.....i realized that you probably (well definitely) have a lot of awesome pictures from this summer and i have a camera but suck at actually ever using it...is there anyway i could get a cd of pictures and videos youve taken this summer so i could bring it home and show them to people and pretend like i took the pictures myself? jk i would totally give you credit....anyway i am off the next 2 days and i know ill forget this request by the time im back at work, so hopefully you will read this or if not hopefully i will remember to call you when i get back to work...also i can hear the newest intern snoring from my bedroom across the hall...ahh the luxurious life of a wolf hollow intern!!!
