My Family and Friends

My name is Katie and I am 11 years old. I wanted to have a blog so that I can write about all the things I do each day. Do you like the view from my room? It's in the side bar. I think its pretty...and there's a lot of things that go on out there. And I'll write about them!
Thanks to a little help from Mom this blog was made. Now pics of my family. : )
This is Chatty.
It must take a lot of energy to jump up on his sill because he had to take a couple of bites of kitty chow before he made it up there... LOL!

This is Mommy.

This is my Daddy.

These are my siblings.
Ian (Left), Jacob(Right), and the princess Ellie(Middle).
My friends are Kimie O., Ella A., Sarah S., and Kim C.
My e-mail pals are Maddi and my Meme.
I can't believe school is in eight weeks. Summer seems like it just flies by.
It's scorching outside today. You could probably cook an egg out there.
Until next time buddies.


  1. That's a pretty pitiful picture you chose of nose is all wrinkled up and my teeth look like Bucky the Beaver! :)
    Mommy loves you Kate....I know this will be an entertaining venture for you. And thank you for being kind about your "siblings".

  2. Nice blog ! Can't wait to read more about your adventures.

  3. Hi Katie,
    Welcome to the world of blogging. I really enjoy all the blogs I read and I'll add you to my Google Reader so I don't miss any of your posts. I see that you live in Indiana. I live in Virginia. I've been reading your Mom's blog because of her Cross stitching projects. I love all types of needlework. Do you do any cross stitching or sewing? It is a great hobby and as a girl it helps to know how to sew. I want to wish you well in your blogging and look forward to hearing about what goes on outside your window.

    I have a little blog too. Don't write as much as I would like because I work Full time but if you'd like to check it out, it's Oh, and I have cats too. Love them.

  4. Welcome to blogland Katie! I really like the banner you chose for your blog. Is that a slide right outsdie your window? Pretty cool! I hope you get to do lots of fun things this summer andI look forward to reading about all your adventures!

  5. Hi, Katie! You don't know me, I'm a friend of your Mommy's. I think she is very special--if you are anything like her, you are very special indeed. I like the photos you shared--you are so pretty--just like your Mommy. And, by the way, I like the photo you chose of your Mommy--it's very cute. I look forward to reading about you on your blog!!!

    Your new friend,

  6. Hi Katie!
    I'm another one of Mommy's blogging friends. I live in New York. I work in New York City and live on Long Island. I have a kitty too. And a new puppy. I love the view from your window. it looks so green and peaceful. I'll be checking your blog again for more photos of the view, your family and of course your kitty too.

  7. Hi Katie,
    You did a really nice job on your blog. This will be fun for me to check up on your daily activities. Can't wait for you to come down in July. We will have some fun!

  8. Hi Katie,
    I love that pic of Bucky the Beaver, great choice! ;-) All the pics of your family are great & I'm looking forward to reading your blog. Your kitty Chatty looks exactly like the kitty we used to have named Smokey. We had him for 15 years and we miss him a lot. Give Chatty an extra treat for me okay? Enjoy the summer, it does go by very fast.

    BTW, you have some good songs on your playlist! :-)

  9. Hello Katie!

    You have a great window view! I look forward to reading about what you see from that window :)

  17. Glad to have you as a blogger. My new grand-daughter is also named Kaitee (spelled a little different) but she is only 11 weeks old, so she's not quite ready to start blogging yet. You can pave the way for her and other little ones. Show them how it's done. Have fun, CJ ok;-)

  28. Congratulations on your beautiful blog Katie!!
    Thank you for sharing your pretty family and cool cat pics!! Hope you are having a totally awesome summer!!

  29. Wow! You have quite a following already! Love your cool cat kitty wearing sunglasses. Have fun with your blog. I remember well when my daughter was 11. She had braces and wore glasses too and had super curly hair! Now she is 17 with perfect teeth, contact lenses and straightens her hair.

    Have a great summer! Yes, summers do go way to fast.

  30. Welcome to blogging! I have enjoyed reading your mom's blog, and look forward to seeing more posts from you. The weather really was icky today here today in Illinois, too. I have a niece about the same age as you. I had to take her home today, but we had a blast hanging out this past week. Enjoy the summer :)

  31. Hi Katie! You're adorable and your blog ROCKS! I look forward to seeing what you're up to. Nice job blogging so far!

  32. Hi,
    I think your blog is kewel! Your mom is a talented stitcher and I like her blog too.

  33. Hi Katie
    Welcome to blogland. Thank you for introducing your family to us. I look forward to reading your future posts.
    Best wishes from the UK

  34. Hi Katie. Welcome to blogland. I look forward ro reading about the things that are going on outside your window. Nice pics of your siblings! I have a daughter, Sara, who is 20 now. Seems like just yesterday that she was your age. I hope you'll enjoy writing on your blog.

  35. Well Katie girl, I will look forward to reading your blog. Chatty is a superstar for letting you put sunglasses on him. I am also a cat lover! I have 3 right now. My niece is named Katelyn, aka Katie girl, and as I tell her to shine, I'll extend a big shine like the stars sweetie because you are loved!

  36. Hey Katie, welcome to Blogland! I will be curious to see what you get up to. And your kitty cat, too! He's gorgeous. Love the pic where he's looking at the little light-switch thingy.
    Oh, and you DO have a lovely view from your bedroom window! Until next time!

  37. Welcome to the blogging world, Katie! You have a beautiful family, and your blog looks wonderful. My name is Siobhan, and I am American, but I live with my family on the west coast of Ireland, in a county called Clare. We don't have states here, but the country, which would fit into the state of Pennsylvania in size, is divided into counties. I live in the county town, which means that the county government offices are here, and we also have big markets where farmers come in from out in the country and sell their wares.

    I look forward to reading more blog entries from you!

  38. Hi Katie,
    Here's a comment from the Netherlands! I read your mom's blog and I'm also a stitcher. Welcome to blogworld! And I love your view from your window. Must be a great garden to play in! My DS Tijmen is jealous of it ;)

  39. Hi Katie! Great blog. Over here in the Netherlands, my kids haven't even started their summer break yet - school is out on July 10th. And then they only get 6 weeks off. What a gyp, huh? But they've never been to an American school and don't know what it would be like to get 3 months off, so they don't miss it.

    Happy blogging!

  40. Hey Katie! You did such a great job on your blog. You are such a talented young lady! Now we have a way of seeing whats going on in your life on a daily basis. We are so proud of you!

    We love you very much,
    Uncle Adam, Aunt Missy, Bradyn, Lucky, & Pops

  41. Hi Katie! I'm a friend of your mom's and am excited to meet you (even if it's just online). How exciting that you have started a blog! I have an 11 year old daughter Danielle but she's lucky and only has 1 brother Derek who is 9. Have fun blogging!
