A belated Fantasy Pawty

Ruis biwfday was Novembew 26 but he and most of Limbuwg did not have any intewnet access fow weeks!!!
Today they are supposed to be back on!
So we (Karl, Sassy, Opus, Momo, and I ,(Asta)) are thwowing him a suwpwise biwfday theme pawty now! (fow those of you who did not know, Karl and ruis wewe mawwied in a bootiful cewemony eawliew this yeaw...they awe my vewy good fwiends and a faboolous couple)
Welcome to Arabian Nights for Ruis!
(photos and Stowy by Kawl unless othewwise specified, so now I'll let Karl descwibe the pictoowes and tell you what happened)

The guests of course arrive on magic flying carpets! Opus is bringing his new lady friend Lacie and they picked up Asta and her sweatheart Stanley on the way.

Wheeeee.....this is fun,hehehehehe

Momo comes with her boyfriend Socks and they picked up Sassy.

Mrs. OZ and Tintin had helped me(Karl ) put up some Arabian tents and one of them is solely reserved for Ruis birthday presents! After everybody puts their presents inside it is quiet crowded in there!
These are his presents: a framed painting (Opus), an Arabian horse (Sassy), gold bars (Sassy), a gold shawl (Asta), an oil lamp (Sassy), a camel (Opus), an orange tiger rug (Socks), a picture (Karl), pickled lizards (Karl), another oil lamp (Mrs. OZ), and another oil lamp (Momo), a gold throne (Karl), a hookah (Asta), a genii with a flying carpet (Momo), an Aladdin DVD (Tintin), perfume (Opus), an Arabian coffee set (Mrs. OZ), three boxes with precious scents (Asta), a sword (Tintin), a magic flying carpet (Sassy)
And then the In-Laws arrive with Ruis! They had told him that they would take him to a surprise trip in the countryside, blindfolded him, and flew him over.

After the long carpet rides everybody is just relaxing a bit first.

Not evewybody! I (Karl) am giving Ruis a private belly dance performance, hahahahahahahaha!

Picture by Asta

It doesn't stay private for long of course and now all the girls want to belly dance too!

picture doctored by Asta since she found a photo where herBFF Lacie was in the foreground doing a snake dance

And not just the girls.... there is Opus, keeping Roscoe's spirit alive with a most awesome belly dance that Roscoe couldn't have done better!

After all that dancing everybody is hungry! Mrs. OZ and Tintin have some snacks prepared: lizard pilaf, lizard gyros, baklava and lots of hot sweet Moroccan tea. Here they are waiting with Karl and Ruis for the "hungry hord" to arrive.... And please help yourself to some food too, there is plenty more!

I pwefewed the meatables to the lizawd..I think lizawd is an ack-wiwed taste..but evewything else was vewy delicious!

Afterwards cats and dogs are just hanging out, having a good time. And for some reason Mrs. OZ decides to rub the lamp she gave Ruis for his birthday - and guess what happens!!! All our bridge animals appear in a cloud of pale blue smoke and sing "Happy Birthday To You".

Then it is time for Ruis and me to part with the party and mount our magic flying carpet to go off for a romantic couple of days at an undisclosed (no, Sassy, we are not telling!) location. But Sassy was nice enough to leave a prepacked suitcase for us with strict instructions to not open it until we reach our destination...
Come back this weekend ( to Karl's) to see where we'll go and what we'll encounter!

And if you have a minute please go over to
Ruis blog and leave him a birthday wish!
And as a little thank you for celebrating with us,
please also take some pillows home with you!

Stanley and I awe going to go twy out a few of those pillows wight now..

Thank you soooo much Asta and Stanley for coming to the party! You belly dance performance RICKED, Asta! And I can't believe I forgot to mention the meat table - only having lizards on my mind all the time. And Ruis of course, hahahahahaha.

You are a great belly dancer Asta. This is a pawsome party and I am having a ball visiting with my friends. ~Socks

Sassy Kat said...

All that practice paid off. I think our belly dance went about as good as it could. It is so much fun being all together again. Somehow I don't think that the surprised stop with the party though.

Ruby and Penny said...

What a great party. It looks like so much fun, especially the carpet ride. I think lizard would be quite tasty.
Have a great time.
Love Ruby

Gus said...
