Crazy Cat Lady Costume

You may not know the crazy cat lady character from The Simpson's so here is a picture of her.
So a few year ago, I used a dress that I had as a template and made a dress.  Then I went to Deseret Industries (DI)  and bought the sweater and slippers.  I bought some cats at  DI, Shopko and the dollar store.  I attached the cats to my dress, sweater and slippers.  I put a cat in a pocket and I stained that pocket yellow so it looks like the cat peed on me.  I have a cat that meow when you grab it or throw it.  That is the cat that I throw at people.

So I have a cat on my shoulder, one on my behind, one in a pocket, a small one on a slipper and one that I throw.  I want to get some more and have one climbing up my arm, one hanging off the dress and attach one to a headband so that there is one in my hair.

It's been ages

Wow, it has been ages since my last post. Let's get y'all up to speed.

My internship at Bingham High School is awesome.  I have an awesome group of students that I work with.  The teachers and paraeducators are awesome.  The peer tutors are awesome.  Recently we went to Homecoming.  I took Kyle as my date.  He looked hot.  I will post some pics as soon as I get them.

Chloe is in 1st grade this year.  She has a new group of friends, and some old friends from her Kindergarten class.  She is reading very well.

Cooper is in 4th grade this year.  He hopefully on the verge of a growth spurt.  He seems to like his class and his teacher works well with him.

Zane is in 9th grade this year.  I don't know how well Zane is doing because he is in his moody teenage phase right now.  But he's got a couple of groups of friends that he hangs with.  He and a friend have been taking dance lessons.  He plays the cello in orchestra.

Zac is in 11th grade.  He is taking Japanese and guitar as some of his electives.  He has his learner's permit and is registering for Driver's Ed for next semester.

Kyle is working.  He works a split shift.  He goes in to work for a couple of hours, then comes home to get the kids off to school, then goes back to work.  I leave the house by 6am to be at work by 7am.  The kids don't need to leave until 8am, so...

The two dogs are fun to watch, but I am giving them up to a good home with a better fencing system that will keep them in the yard.  So if you, or someone you know would like a dog...

That's about it.
