We have a big dinnnew an then open pwesents on Chwissmuss Eve...befowe all that could happen, we had to get the house weady, and bake and cook and evewything smelled sooo gweat I was going cwazy...I couldnt wait fow things to begin..but I had to be patient(not easy fow a tewwiew)...but I was pwetty good...I looked at some of my favowite ownaments and dweamed of tweats I would be getting...My owange stocking disappeawd and wouldn't come back till pwesent opening time...I guess cewtain hoomans don't twust me,hehehehe

Unfowtunately Mommi took a tewwible pictoowe, but thewew is the most bootifullest bone with my name on it that I got fwom my sweet fwiend Putter!

Some of the ownaments awe ancient like this little santa
Mommi and I made these cookies that my Gwama aways made..aftew you cut them out, you dip them in egg and then sugaw mixed with gwound walnuts...Mommi made some fow me without the nutses in them...Baking makes the whole house smell like Chwissmuss Mommi says.and I agweee.
Hewe's the cookies Mommi and I made

We'we waiting fow the guests
Mommi and Auntie Kawen got the horses duvers weady
I had to help make suwe evewything was weady...yes the fiwe is good!
Auntie Kawen came eawly, so that we could have a good game of pull-tug, befowe the west of the hoomans awwived
Auntie Kawen had some tewwific shoes, unfowtunately I couldn't taste them, cause she nevew took them off
My Hooman sissy and hew giwlfwiend have awwived..they look like they'we fwom the awctic,hehehe
Hewe awe my cousins being silly
The table is all set..we just have to get evewyone to stop having howses duvres, and get to the table, so we can have dinnnew
OK I'm all dwessed and weady fow dinnnew..whewe is it?????(ommi gets all gooshy when I'm clean and fluffy..just look at the sappy expwession on hew face)
This is the fiwst couwse we have to have evewy yeaw, cause if we don't, my cousins will die!!!

Agatha and Archie said...

Well that looks like so much fun!! The food looks yummy,the presents fabulous(good work on the martian squeekie and feet,4 seconds was a little long though you will have to work at cutting down the time) and PL2 says she adores the shoes but knows that one step and she would be flat on her face) You look so FLUFFY!!!! Love A+A

Sophie Brador said...

Asta, It looks like you had the most wonderful Christmas with lots of family and friends. You are the perfect host.

Christmas was a bit quiet here, because we were not planning on being home, but mom had dinner with friends and lots of wine. She is very sad that she did not get to go to NY to spend Christmas with friends there, and that she missed meeting you and your mom and dad. But I'm so happy to have her here with me.

I am going to the vet tomorrow, to see what my liver is doing now. All signs indicate nothing at all, which is exactly what we want.

Happy Boxing Day!!!!


Daisy said...

Asta, your holiday table is breathtaking! It looks like you had a very special and wonderful holiday. I think your new sweater is very cute, and it goes good with your furs. I like the picture of you pulling on that red toy because I can see your teeths! They are very white and sparkly, too.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Wow those cookies look really tasty. Louie and I would have helped with those..
Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. We sure hope there was plenty of leftovers for today!!

the many Bs said...

Hi Asta, it looks like you had a wonderful christmas at your house - lots of friends, wonderful food and pawsome pressies. good work on tearing that toy apart. getting the squeaker out is kind of like the treat inside the toy, we think. hee hee!


Sophie Brador said...

Asta, My mom is so lazy. She really has to update my blog, but you can always check the twitters on the side. I usually report on how I'm feeling.

Mom is going to post a quick update in a few minutes, but there will be a bigger update tomorrow, I think.

Daniella said...

How beautiful every thing looked. Your Mommy sure knows how to decorate and cook (and she was under the weather!) Wow. Tell her i am putting something in the mail to help with her cookie making. The food looked so tasty, can you believe my Mom cooked a goose yesterday! The neighbor (who doesn't have an oven???) brought it over and asked if we'd like to cook it with him. What a doofus. It was quite tasty but mom said never again. LOL
Merry Xmas dear Asta and Fam,


Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

What a lovely, mouthwatering Christmas dinner! Your Mommie is such a good cook and hostess. Tell Auntie Karen that SS adores her shoes. SS loves pretty shoes but keeps them in a cupboard so that I can't get at them.

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

What a wonderfuly Christmas Eve! Your family has the most lovely events!! All that food on that gorgeous table, oh, Mom is so jealous! She's also so jealous of your Aunt Karen's shoes, she would loooove to know where she got them! Good work with your prezzies, I did a bit of surgery on some of mine and ripped open a ball on Christmas myself. Us terriers certainly can chew! I'm so happy you all had such a wonderful evening.

Your pal,

Joe Stains said...

What a FABULOUS Christmas Eve, everyone looks so happy and your house looks so nice! You have a super family! Mom said that Duck made her drool!!

Anonymous said...

Asta...I think your Christmas was right out of Town and Country magazine! AMAZING! Your momma is such an amazing hostess with all those fresh cookies and DUCK? WOW!

I am so glad you had a happy and healthy Christmas with all of your family...

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!!

I wish I had been there to celebrate with you! You look absolutely ravishing in your Christmas scarf & pearls (though I think you look bootiful just in your normal fuzziness).

The food, the family, your sappy mommi and Auntie Kawen & her AMAZING shoes... it was obviously worth all the work you & your mommi did to get ready. (Good work on your martian squeaky, by the way).

Goober love & Tons of smooches,
Stanley Boy
