Hot Piece of Glass

Sarah, Pete, Megan and I went down to the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York.  
Here's Megan waiting to make her own glass!  But more on that later.

Megan inspecting her ornament and loves it!

We just got the ornament mailed to us today (It had to cool off overnight before we could have it or else it'd break).  We're holding it hostage so Pete and Sarah will hang out with us again!

Megan's ornament!

A CHINCHILLA!  This is apparently what happens when a hamster, rabbit and squirrel mates.  Or, as I told Tachel, "the ugliest cat in the world!"


Photobucket
Minnie on top of her cat tower.  She use to be 24 lbs, but is down to a slim 16-20 lbs now.  She won't climb the tower when anyone is looking, so she must be pretty embarrassed.  But, she eats food faster than any other animal I've ever seen...

Keep my grandma in your thoughts and prayers.  She just had surgery and hope she's healing fine.
