As I was getting ready this morning, I had a feeling today was going to be the day. Although Abbie wasn't officially due to give birth for another 4-8 days, I could sense she was getting ready. If anyone knows my cat, they know that she is not the most affectionate little thing in the world. This morning, she stayed at my feet rubbing up against me, meowing and purring (so not typical for my kitty). As I was leaving for work, she was suddenly no where to be found. I searched the entire house for nearly 30 minutes before I found her nestled up behind the couch, in the closet, behind a picture, under a sleeping bag and oh and lets not forget ON CARPET! When I found her she had already given birth to the first kitty. I slipped a towel under her and watched her give birth to her 2nd. Matt came home just in time to watch the birth of the 3rd kitten, he says he needed a different pair of shoes, but I think its pretty obvious that he was excited (although he wont admit it). Needless to say, Whether a person or a cat, watching something come into the world truly is a miracle to see. Ps.. I'll leave out the picture of Abbie scarfing down the placenta :).

Have I mentioned lately how much I love won tons?? Well I do! Mr. Matt just left for school. He cut back his schedule from 3 classes to 2, I think this will be really good for him as one can only have so much on their plate at a time..unless were talkin bout won tons HA! My original plan was to work on getting our emergency kit put together, but somehow a nice hot bath with a new book sounds so much more appealing. Ive been on the prey for a hot tub. Matt's letting me get one for the backyard and I am so FREAKIN excited! If you know me, you know I don't do the cold well. I am the girl who walks into the house in the winter and is immediately either sitting on the heater with a blanket over me or running a hot bath, so naturally a hot tub is somewhat of a dream of mine. Just found 2 hopefuls on ksl.com Ive compromised and agreed to buy a used one instead of the 7 grand bull frog that I originally fell in love with. I figure to compromise will only benefit me in the future when Mr. Matt decides to come home with the jeep classifieds :). Last weekend we took a drive up to Logan to check out the fall colors in the canyons. Needless to say..it was BEA-utiful!

Its official..winter is here. What happened to fall? Who knows.. I must have blinked too long cause I missed it. So..Abbie's pregnant. Yes I'm embarrassed as I've always been an advocate of spaying and neutering but I didn't have the heart to abort them. Shes due to have them in just a few weeks and I'm getting excited. I'm hoping that she will just have one, then we will keep it and all will be grand. She is a lot more affectionate now that shes pregnant, if only people were the same way :).
Two weeks ago we spent the weekend in Park City with Kaitlin and her hubby. One of our
patients let us stay in her hotel/condo located right on main street in Park City. The rooms there go for around $500 per night. We had a blast, not to mention it was a very well needed get away. Can you say "hot tub on the roof".. Need I say more? We went to breakfast, browsed the shops, and lounged. They even had a farmers market...right outside the front door.
Last weekend I went to Lagoon with the family. We've made it a tradition to go every October. Why October you ask? Because its cheaper at the end of the season Duh! Its also when they do Frightmares, we like to do the haunted houses there. I didnt take a ton of pics but here are a few..
And lets not forget this picture...
Ps..the wicked was a BLAST!
This weekend our plans are to: Finish repairing the fence, work on some landscaping in the yard, take a morning drive to Logan to look at the fall colors, Black Diamond ski swap, and a wedding.
