Slappy Gets Some Kitty Love

The Countess has been allowed bit by bit into Maddie's room.  Before, the excitement of the kitten being in her room kept Maddie from sleeping at all.

Madd Max Gets A San Fran Visitor

3 month old Finnegan Shau Coldwell!
Who Maddie pointed out, was the size of a Nerf gun.
Proud new parents Audris and Dennis.

The Scrapper Gets Some Air Time

With his Den on iHeart radio KFIAM-640.  He was asked if he was planning on being a politician because he was so serious.  He said no.  Pretty cool to be a Boy Scout in the entertainment capital of the world.

Slappy Makes More Signs

 This one was for the counter protests to the anti-Planned Parenthood ones happening over the weekend.  And yes, that is Trump sticking up his middle finger.
Three generations of activism.
Maddie also wrote thank you notes that would be given to providers across the area.

Slappy Goes To World Thinking Day

A Girl scout event where there was face painting.
Happy daisies on our Brownie.
A wall of wishes in the Korean booth, many of which referenced world peace, kittens, puppies, etc.
Our girl's.
Her troop had England as their country, and each girl drew a self portrait in the big red bus.  Maddie drew herself as a Beefeater and labeled it, "Guard Maddie Tomboy."
At lunch, one of her Brownies opened up this sandwich which is Jess' favorite go at peanut butter and jelly - the void in the middle held a skinny rectangle that was being consumed at the time of the photo.  The Brownie's dad explained that sometimes he just got so bored making the same thing day after day.
