Remembering our princess

We lost Cinderella three years ago tonight. Momma still thinks of her often, and I've told Jessie all the stories about her so she knows who came before her.

Cinderella had a beeYOUtiful smile.

But she also had her serious side.

She loved being a true princess.

But she also LOVED rolling around on the ground.

She was a champion napper.

And an all-around pawesome sister!

 We'll never furget you, Ella!!

Throwback Thursday: Erin go bragh!

Since St. Patrick's Day is this weekend, this Throwback Thursday I thought I'd remember a few St. Pat's past with my sissies.

Cinderella loved her sparkly hair bow SO much. She insisted on wearing it every year.

I wasn't nearly as proud of my stupid shamrock head stuff as when I wore my pawesome kilt.

Then I decided to steal the bow and make it a super-cool bow tie. That made the stupid head thingies MUCH better.

Cinderella didn't care. She got a tiara!

After Jessie joined us, she reclaimed the hair bow.

The next year, I said NO to the stupid head thingies!

Much better with just my dapper tie, don't you think?

I wonder what Momma has planned for THIS year. Maybe she lost all our silly head things in the move?

Road trippin'!

Okay, so we had planned for this post to go up on Sunday for Madi's birthday, but it didn't. Momma blames Blogger, we blame Momma. Who knows. Anyway, here is our slightly belated pawticipation.

Our good furiend Madi the Diva Cat is celebrating her birthday today! She is 16 years old! That's a big milestone to reach. Our kitty sister Pigeon turned 16 in January, and she's always lording over us how very grown-up and mature she is. (WHATEV!) Anyways, the most impawtant part of turning 16 is that you can DRIVE! So Madi said that she wanted to celebrate her 16th birthday with a big Blogville ROAD TRIP!!

We're supposed to tell stories about a big road trip that we've done. Well, Jessie and I ride in the car a lot, but it's usually just to the dogtor or the park or to see Grandma & Grandpa or Auntie. Not really big road trips. In fact, we've only done one real road trip in our lives -- two years ago when we went to the furst Blogville Awesome Retreat!

We were SO excited to get in the car and head out in the early morning with our Momma. Jessie kept primping because she was going to meet Stanley in the furs at last.

It was very exciting! We touched our paws outside the state of Texas for the very furst time, and we crossed the mighty Mississippi River!

We spent a lot of time helping Momma navigate so she wouldn't get lost.

We discovered that Kentucky doesn't actually have blue grass -- it's green! Who knew?

AND we stayed in a hotel room for the furst time!! (We actually stayed in two -- one at the BAR and one on our drive home.)

It was a really exciting adventure, but we were exhausted by the time we finally got home!

We hope you enjoyed the story of our road trip in honor of Madi's birthday! You should go read all the other pawesome adventures!

Abandonment and welcome

On Wednesday, Momma cruelly abandoned us overnight forever at Auntie's house, just so she could go down and do some silly lawyer stuff in Austin. It was awful, having all our cousins to play with and getting snuggles from Auntie and sleeping in her bed and getting extra treats. (Okay, it wasn't ALL bad. Don't tell Momma!)

But because we are kind and generous and loving souls, we still welcomed Momma back home when she came back last night.

That's me and Jessie, of course. Cousin Penny is by Momma's feet, Cousin Bebe is squeezed onto Momma's lap, and Cousin Simon is by her elbow. You can't see Cousin River on the floor by Momma's right hand where she can be petted, and Cousin Frankie laying right under Momma's feet. Never say we dont' know how to say hello!

I hope we showed Momma how devastated we were without her and she'll never EVER leave us again.

Oh, and...

Wordless Wednesday


(PeeS: Did anyone else have trouble with Blogger today? It kept telling us it couldn't add a picture to the post, which is kind of the point of Wordless Wednesday! Glad it finally cooperated.)

Family reunion

Momma has started training for her Renny-sauce faire, so that means visits to Auntie's house!! Since our new house is SO close, we don't actually live with Auntie on the weekends like we used to. Instead, we drive over in the morning, Jessie and I play with the cousins all day while Auntie and Momma do Renny-sauce stuff, then we go home and sleep in our own bed that night. It's pawfect!!

Jessie really wanted some of Momma's sausage biscuit they had for breakfast one day.

This is my little cousin Simon. I'm his idol. It's adorable. He always wants to lay next to me and tries to copy my position and everything. (That's even littler cousin Bebe in the back!)

We hope all of you had a fun-filled weekend!

Final Fiction Friday

It's the last Friday of the month, which means it's YAM Auntie's Final Fiction Friday! The challenge -- take a book, turn to page 87, and choose one word each from the 8th, 12th, and 16th lines. Then create a work of fiction, prose or poetry!

Since Momma's a big nerdy lawyer, the book she grabbed furst was "Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges." *sigh* Really, Momma? Okay. Our words are


A Terrible, Rotten, No-Good Life
By Jessie!

Once upon a time, there was a little doggie whose life was just TERRIBLE! Her momma was cruel to her. Why, there was one week her momma made it rain almost nonstop the ENTIRE time, and she refused to dry out the back yard so the sweet little doggie could do zoomies and potty and all that stuff.

Yes, folks, it was a hard life.

Finally the little doggie couldn't take it any more. At the end of the week, her cruel momma got out of bed...and said, "It's raining, we're not going to walk this morning."

The little doggie cried as if her heart would break and shouted, "Momma, this is too much to bear! There's simply no consideration given for my hard life!"

The momma said, "Do you want a cookie?"

And the little doggie decided life wasn't so terrible after all.

The End

Goodbye to a good furiend

Our hearts are broken this morning. Our good buddy Sarge, Blogville's stalwart Police Commissioner, unexpectedly passed away this morning. Our thoughts are with his pawrents and the Crabby Girls, who will all miss him so very much. :(

Best Valentines ever!

You'd think that going to Paris would be enough for any pups, but Jessie and I had MORE of a grreat Valentine's Day left once we got back! My Boy and Auntie Jess came over for our Valentine's night tradition -- chocolate, Chinese food, and classic horror movies! Well, Jessie and I got kibble and treats instead of chocolate and Chinese food, but we all enjoyed the movie -- and more importantly, the snuggling!

"Look, Momma, it's My Boy! I'm so happy!" 

Jessie and Pigeon kept Auntie Jess company for a while so My Boy and I could have some man time. 

Man Time 

"Okay, Jessie, you can see My Boy too, but just for a little bit!" 

 "Just for a little bit, huh, Casey? I've got Auntie Jess AND your Boy wrapped around my paws!!"
"That's okay, Jessie. I'm still a Momma's Boy at heart." 

After the movie ("Kung Fu Zombie", a movie that delivers exactly what it promises!), we got set for our usual selfies.

Jessie and Auntie Jess always have to copy us. They're jealous of how cool we are.

Momma decided she and Pigeon wanted to be included too.

And then the humans took a picture with NO DOGS AT ALL. OMD, can you BELIEVE that?! Weirdos.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Postcards from Paris

OMD, what an amazing Valentine's Day this is! Stanley and I flew First Class Blogville Air to France, and we've been going all around the town. Stanley and I wanted to see all the sites of Paris, and Casey pawmised Momma he'd give us plenty of space. What a grreat brother!

After a break for Madi's fashion show, Stanley and I headed back on the town!

OMD, what an amazing trip! I think I'm going to sleep the whole trip home. Thanks to all my pawesome Blogville furiends for organizing this.
