Toes, Tails and Tummies

A few nights ago, I shot some pics of Oliver sleeping on the back of the couch (this has recently become one of his favorite sleep places du jour). Then I got to thinking about his cutie toes. And his cutie tail.

Then I got to thinking about Noli's cutie toes. And her cutie tail (yes, my sweetie little granddaughter has a tail, several in fact.)

Then tummies jumped in there and then I got to thinking about the new (to me) meme I discovered, Alphabe-Thursday, brought to you today by the letter T!

So, I thumbed (cyber thumbed since they exist somewhere between my camera and my computer) through my Noli pics and my Oliver pics and came up with some awesome Toes, Tails and Tummies!!


♥ Toes ♥
This is the pic that started it all -- Oliver's toes and tail just above me on the couch.



I love kittie toes -- especially the pink ones like Oliver has. We like to play "spread toes" with him -- rub him between his toes and that big pad on his feet and he spreads his toes waaaay out. Too funny! And his tail was practically on my nose!

♥♥ (I just added this pic and post to Pink Saturday -- but I did it today, Sunday : ) -- Oliver's cutie pink toes are going to join in! Thanks for the suggestion, Birgit! See more info at the end of this post) ♥♥

Oliver says: "cool, my mommyfur"  >^.^<


This is Noli in the pool with one of her mom's friends. She was trying to stretch her toes up to the side and just barely made it!  Kid pool toes are the best! (No, not my pool -- I wish!)


♥ Tails ♥
Noli plays a lot of make-believe and one of her favorites is to pretend to be a kitty. We used many and varied forms of tails -- here's one that's very colorful.


(I actually think she was being a fox with his big fluffy tail -- you may remember the "Fox in the Yard" post -- well, she still gets a kick out of pretending to be that fox!)



And here's a make-do tail 'cause we couldn't find one of her official tails....



and the kitty ears to go with....


♥ Tummies ♥


This is one of my favorite photos of Noli. She's just turned three and was walking along the path in the backyard. I love the way her tummy kind of leads the way! Hard to believe she's in Kindergarten this year!



And Oliver is all his big cat tummy glory! He doesn't sleep on his back very much so it's a big deal around here when he does! And he definitely has a big deal tummy!! (But don't tell him I said so, he's rather vain...)

>^.^<    >^.^<    >^.^<

For some more "T's" hop on over to Alphabe-Thursday! You're welcome to join in the fun!


P.S. -- Birgit of Swapping Howdies left a sweet comment saying that I should link this up to Pink Saturday over at How Sweet the Sound. Because of Oliver's sweet, sweet pink toes! So I clicked right over and oh! such a cute idea!! OK, so from now on, I'll try to link up over there on Saturdays. Pink is just such a hap-hap-happy color, don't you think?

and

(Oliver insisted that he get to sign his name too -- since he had to suffer the indignities of the "tummy aka belly " photo! It was the least I could do for the little guy!!

That's one of the best T posts so far -- I just love it! :) By the way, since Oliver's toes are this lovely shade of pink, you might want to link this up to Beverly's Pink Saturday. The link is on my blog. :)

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit

PS: See my T post here! :)

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Sarah. I am so glad Birgit pointed you in the pink direction. I hope you will continue to join us.

Those are some cute little pink toes. In fact, your entire post is adorable.

Your little Noli is a dollbaby.
