Here's a quick demo of their talents.

happy 13th birthday, Tanner!!

Our first baby (er, furbaby) is turning 13... pretty crazy, we found Tanner's birth paper certificate stuff while cleaning out an old box the other day and then realized we were celebrating his birthday month with the kids wrong all these years. lol. We thought he was born in October, as we got him in early November, so really we were almost celebrating the time we got him vs his actual birth date which was Sept 17, 2002. Either way, we couldn't be happier with our crazy dog-like cat that we have in our family. He surely keeps us all entertained and gives lots of snuggles and love, and has adjusted to the changes well, not to mention he acts like he hasn't aged a bit and doesn't act like an old fat cat yet (knock on wood). 
Happy 13th birthday, Tanner!

 Tanner, as a kitten, not too long after we brought him home. 

Ben and Alicia realized they add up to how old Tanner is! Ben (4) + Alicia (9) = Tanner (13) #funmathfact

 A little frosting and ice cream for the birthday boy. He didn't care for the vanilla ice cream and went for my mint ice cream instead. only way he'd wear the birthday hat was for some Betty Janes grasshopper mint ice cream..

Tent fort is under the Watchful eye of the tiger

Tanner found a new home this morning when we were starting to move stuff around . Of course, he's sitting high above the kids' tent fort in the kitchen keeping a watchful eye.

Happy bday Alicia from Ben

Ben did a great job at wishing Alicia a happy 9th birthday today. He knew his sister well by picking out her favorite toy and by making an awesome card for her. He wrote/drew her card all by himself with minimal help from mommy too. Alicia said it was a good day :)

Kitty statue

Tanner likes to sit by the door and wait for the kids if they are outside or when Alicia comes home from the school bus stop. He's almost statue-like here :)
