Stopping In To Say Hello

Hi everyone! Its been a week since we blogged so we wanted to say hello! Next week we promise we'll be back in the swing of things. Its just been a ROUGH week! 
But Mama said she wants to say thank you to the FIFTY pets and people who commented or emailed to cheer her up and check on us! It really lifted Mama's spirits. It meant so much to us that we've made such good friends in the pet blogosphere. Even people we didn't even know were stopping to wish us well! The blogosphere is an amazing thing, isn't it? We love being a part of it. And we wanted to thank all of our friends SO MUCH for reaching out to us.
The good news is, Gramma and Grampa are back from their vacation in Arizona. Grampa brought Mama home a weird lollipop. It has an actual dead scorpion inside of it! Gramma told Mama to throw it away, but Mama wants to keep it... although she is not sure she will ever eat it! 
The bad news is, yesterday Mama's great-aunt, Auntie Etta, passed away. She had been sick for a long time and in a lot of pain, and basically made the decision for no more life saving measures to be done. Mama hadn't seen her a lot in recent years, but used to see her a lot when she was little. When Mama was a baby, Auntie Etta knitted her a W blanket, which Mama treasured, slept with, and carried around with her 24/7 for her entire childhood. In fact, Mama still has it on her bed! Want to see? 



Auntie Etta also knitted W blankets for Mama's little brother, and for some of Mama's little cousins... although probably the youngest batch of cousins didn't get W blankets since Auntie Etta didn't have the energy to knit them any more. 
She also really closely helped raise two of Mama's cousins who were her grandkids. Those kids are in their 20's now and one has a baby of her own, but they are having a really hard time dealing with it since they were so close to her. 
So anyway all of that is not helping with Mama's sadness issues, even though Gramma and Grampa are back, because now she is just thinking about how easy it is to lose the ones you love.
But she is doing much better and feels bad about neglecting our blog for so long. We're going to try to go visit all of your blogs today, too! We can't wait!
Thanks again for all your love, kind words, and support. 
Love,
Trixie, Lily, Sammy-Joe, and Mama.

Dear T,L&SJ, it's good to hear your mama is feeling a little better. Sorry to hear about your auntie Etta. She sounds like a special person. Her W blanket looks lovely and snuggly. Tell your mama not to hurry to blog and just to take care of herself. Big hugs xox
