A Lap Full of Kittens - CK#49

Hi my friends.  Hope this finds you all well, dry, and happy!  Things have pretty much settled back into our old daily grind.  Me working; kitties laying around sleeping all day, chasing each other around all night.  Well, maybe not all night. ;)  Happy to say that Maggie's eye has cleared up.  No more meds.  She is much happier.  And the boys are doing well also.  I learned something new today - how to download stuff from my Kindle to my computer!  Wow! Who knew? 

If you haven't looked at my Amalia's Christmas Lights card from 2 weeks, ago, please check it out.  It won Top 3 over at Party Time Tuesday.  I need to get the button on my blog.  Super excited.
