The Drama Queen turns One!!

I can't believe it - the time has flown by SO fast!  Today my little Diva Extraordinaire is one year old!!  To think that the little brindle bundle that was born exactly a year ago...

That's Carmen on the right, her sister Vera on the left.  They were literally minutes old in this photo!
... has already grown into a beautiful little lady!  Seems like just yesterday that Carmen was a floppy puppy, trying to find her legs.  From the little potato that could barely negotiate the fleece rim of her puppy nest:

Carmen, 4 weeks old.
To a mountain goat who leaps tall couches in a single bound!  They grow up too fast, I tell ya!

Carmen surveying her kingdom from her favorite perch, the back of the couch.
So a very happy birthday to my little Drama Queen.  You've come a long way baby, and there's a whole big world out there waiting to see how much further you'll go!!

I smell cake.  The only place I'm going right now is the kitchen!!

Happy Birthday, Carmen!!! That first year just zoomed by. We had the same feeling with Ciara here. The Momster says you are so right, they do grow up way too quickly. Hope you have a great day, Carmen, and be sure to share that cake with the rest of the furamily.\

Happy Birfday, Carmen! I sure do hope we see some cake pictures soon -- we know you're just waiting oh so patiently in that last picture for the cake to be served (divas get served, others, not so much!)! We've enjoyed your first year, and can't wait to read of more of your great adventures in the future!!

Oh, shoot! I missed your actual real birthday, Carmen. But surely a diva like you wouldn't just keeps her birthday celebrations to one measly day, right? So HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK, Carmen! I hope it's Most Wonderful!
