Alexis loved animals – especially corgis and always begged for one. She was the proud owner of one cow on sale day. She also loved, and sometimes tormented, her mom and sister’s cats, Tigger and Rusty.
She recently celebrated Thanksgiving at her great-grandma’s house and learned to play a new game. Although she just learned how to play, she already won!
Alexis loved to read and enjoyed watching Friends and SpongeBob. Alexis and her dad liked to watch Heartland together. She also loved to bake and always had the house filled with goodies. She was also an avid snapchatter.
