A Butterbean Birthday!!!

Our lovely girl turns eight tomorrow, and we're going to start up the celebration today! I thought we would kick things off this morning with a little trip down memory lane.

Here are a few favorite moments from these eight glorious years with our beautiful girl.

We love the complex, goofy, lovey-dovey, nurturing, and enchanting girl that you are.

Happy Birthday, dear Bean!!  You're extra-special and we adore you!

  1. Ms Butterbean, you are the epitome of feline perfection. Gorgeous, aloof, kitten-whisperer (you must have learned it from Grandpa), sparkle ball killer.. You are fabulous. Have a stupendous birthday!

  2. That tail, those eyes! I truly think she is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen, sorry Mama Lucy and Baby Winkers, but it is the truth.

  11. I, too, love the sleeping with Dad pic. They're all terrific, but I really enjoyed the one of her leaning against the red chair's armrest. She looks so sophisticated. :-)
