Abby, “Mom, I don’t think we’ll be able to walk today”.
That was Abby looking out the window the day we had a northeastern coming our way. I did keep her busy, but I am pretty sure she would have preferred to go for a walk.
Abby, “I need to pee, but I can’t find the smell I am looking for!”
Abby and I love to walk, but please be extra careful when you are out walking because drivers may not be able to see you due to the height of the snow. It also doesn’t help that Abby and I are both short.
Abby, “Mom, please stop taking pictures of me already!”
Yes, as you can see in the above picture, Abby was already done being the object of my pictures. Fine, no more pictures . . . well, for now.

It’s been a couple of months since Alex passed away and we still miss her very much. Today, May 5th, would have been her 14th birthday. I do wish we had more time together, but I am grateful for the time we spent with her. What Alex enjoyed the most was sunbathing. There were times when I had to tell her to come in or move away from the sliding doors because she was already panting. Funny how you miss the little things about those you love and are no longer with us.
Happy birthday my amazing girl. We love you dearly. Till we see each other again.
Marcela and Cynthia

Yesterday, my beautiful Alex turned 12 and we decided to celebrate her birthday by taking pictures and having some cake. Alex wasn’t interested in posing for pictures because all she wanted to do was kiss her sister. Look at Bella’s face.
Bella decided to hide from Alex because she did not want to stop her lovefest. Either that, or Bella just did not want to be photographed.
Cynthia made that cake for Alex, and as you can see Alex was impatiently waiting for her piece of cake. She was probably thinking, “Hurry up, please, and give me some cake.” Happy birthday my beautiful girl.
