We have a new addition to our family, a gray kitten named Rella Gray. She has a very interesting story as to how she became apart of our family. Oct. 12th, that morning I heard some loud meowing outside. As I left for school I saw a gray cat under our porch. I couldn't tell much about the cat except for that fact it was gray. It was still there that evening when we came home. We didn't see or hear from it on Friday or Saturday. Oct. 14th, that morning the girls and I left at 8 am to go to Greer to see my parents and to go apple picking. We got there around 11. When I got out of the car, I heard a cat meowing. I kept looking around the car for the cat and then it hit me...the cat was in the car. We had brought a visitor with us. So I got my dad and he opened the hood and there she was. I had to make a trip to PetSmart to get some food and a carrier for her to get her home. Kevin said since the cat rode 3 hours in the hood of my car, she was destined to be apart of our family. Once I got home that weekend, the next week I took her to the vet, she was a healthy 3 month old kitten. Madalyn named the cat "gray" because she is a gray cat. Alexis LOVES Cinderella and she wanted to name the cat "rella", so "Rella Gray" became the cat's name. And let me tell you she is very loved by both girls and myself, especially Alexis. She LOVES "her" Rella Gray.
October 14th we came up to visit my parents, the girls and I and we went to the mountains to apple pick. However, we were unable to pick apples due to the weather had damaged the crops. But the girls had a fun time anyway and it was a nice day for it, very warm. Last year we went and it was so COLD, the coldest we had EVER been apple picking, it was miserable. So glad we didn't have that this time.

Nana, Madalyn, G-Dad, and Alexis
Alexis was eating an apple and Madalyn took the apple from Alexis and fed it to this ram. He ate the apple. It made Alexis very upset, she wanted her apple back.
This was always Madalyn's favorite slide because it went so fast. Alexis enjoyed it too. She would slide down and say, "again!"
A Look Back at Madalyn's Previous Trips to Skytop Orchard (the years we didn't go to Skytop we went to another place called Grandad's Apples.)
Tonight was Madalyn's first soccer game..she loved it all! She didn't want to sit down and rest when it was time and she wasn't ready for the game to be over when it was. She has another one on Thursday. She really did well her first game, Kevin and I were proud of her trying her best. :0)
