Daddi dwessed up like an ice cweam salesman cause he wanted to pleez mommi and it was the 70s(bad taste was wampant)
They went skiing togethew( the only pictoowe in the post of them not in city clothes is in the Tywol.(golf???I don't think so, hehehehe)
I thought dancing was a good answew though..they do that a lot.
and I have been wif them since I was eight weeks old, and am now two and a half, so thwee yeaws is the answew!

Fooey, I wish I could send evewyone a pwize, but Mommi says that's not how it wowks.

Hi, Asta!
It was not that we forgot to answer your questions. It was that we are soooo bad remembering things. Forgive us please!
Congratulations to Joey!

Kisses and hugs

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

What a wonderful love to celebrate at your house! Asta, it was such a pleasure to look inside your windows to the past and see how much your beans loved each other when their time first began!! To be able to carry it on for so long is a testimony in itself! I am so proud to be your friend and that you care so much for me...a little cat. Life is precious and needs to be lived in those tiny moments your beans seem to find with ease.
Love your feline friend Miss Peach

Joe Stains said...

Those salmon snacks look great! Clearly all I pay attention to are the food and drinkables!! Thanks so much for the lovely postcard of the Bogart painting. Check out our blog today, we put it in a frame and have it where we can see it all the time.

Martha said...

That looks like an utterly delightful Sunday, Asta.

Sorry we did not take part in the quiz. We were totally stumped by the questions. Must have been having one of our foggy days - Ha Ha!!!

That's a terribly cute pic of you after the prizewinner announcement! Or rather, even cuter than usual!

Your Pals,
Tom and Tama-Chan

Martha said...

Happy belated anniversary to your 'rents! Love, Martha

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Yum - we wish we could go to Aunt Karen. Mom and Dad are having an Easter dinner - we hope we get lucky enough to have a few taste of it. Usually we help Mom cook and Piper does his sweetest Scottie stand and Mom just melts and gives us all a bite. Last night we had a bite of tomatoes - Piper wasn't ready for that and spit his out - but we cleaned it up for him.

Hi Asta! I'm so happy to have won the anniversary quiz! It was a lot of fun to play it. All the answers were there on your blog, including a link to your mom's art website (your mom is a FANTASTIC artist!) that told where her first art show was. I did get stumped on the sport - I don't know anything about skiing and had no idea those were ski clothes! I hope you and your family have many, many more happy anniversaries together.

See ya!

Gus said...

Oh Yummy food. And we didn't realize the Duffster was quite so Gingerrrrrry about the face. Everything looks wonderful, but I do so love that salmon stuff. mmmmmm


Deb Cushman said...

Looks like a great dinner party! Just read your wonderful post about your parents wedding and life together! What a wonderful way to remember a special day. You're the best, Asta! (And a belated Happy Anniversary to your folks! It's my parents 36th anniversary today!)

Kelly said...

Oh, that dinner looked divine Asta! There's no way my momma could resist your face, either!

Bisous, Faya

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni FB O'Mine!

Stella was so sure she was going to win, but she wasn't very observant when she looked at the photos. Joey TOTALLY deserves his prize!

My favorite part about this post is the photo of you blowing a raspberry at the camera (mmmm... raspberries...)! Your little pink tongue is so cute when it peeks out of your mouth!

Auntie Kawen's lunch looks gooberlicious! Glad they didn't forget you and Duffy. And, yes! He DOES have a gorgeous red head (like your daddi), but I still like your punkin head the BEST!

Goober love & smooches,

Lucia said...

Ciao bella Asta!!

Your mommi and daddi and you go to the most magnifico parties! Your Zia Karen looks like the dearest, darlingest Zia (and such a meravigliosa cuoca, too -- mmmmm!) and your Easter dinner such fun! Aren't famiglie and amici the best things in life, ever??!

Tanti baci, cara amica,

Eric said...

Asta, look at all those bunnies at Auntie Karens. Was there more when you left than when you arrived? Mmm wonder how they do that?

The feast looks delicious. Did you drink that whole glass of wine or did you have some water with it? And Duffy! He's so wagging handsome he's had his first strip me thinks...smart boy.That way he'll keep his red head.

Love n kissies, Eric xxx

Stanislaw said...

Smoked salmon is my FAVORITE! Big Pupi and I don't normally drool, but even we'll have strings o' saliva juices dangling down at the scent of the smoked fishes. Num num num.

Your palm sunday dinner looks so delicious.

Fuzz butt sure has a nice red mask on his fuzzy face. Salmon is yummers. I hope you got enough. It is very good for you.


P.S. Momma says the 70's doesn't look so bad anymore when she looks at what those "young peoples" wear. Oh, who is a dotty old hen or what?

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hi Asta!

Sorry for not visiting sooner! Congrats to Joey for getting almost all the answers! Your Palm Sunday looks AWESOME! And the foodables...yum yummm!! Love the Easter eggs your Mom painted...gorgeous!

Hope you have a great week ahead!


Sophie Brador said...

Asta, I don't think Auntie Karen eats anything other than lamb. tee hee hee hee. My mom made me say that. All that food looks so good and mom tells me she is an excellent chef. You and Duffy are so adorable. I can't wait to meet you in pawson.


Moco said...

That looks like a wonderful dinner. You are very lucky to have such a wonderful aunt to have you to her house.
We are never letting the crazy old bat help us with answers to contest questions anymore. She doesn't know a thing.

Pippa said...

Asta what a lovely Palm Sunday celebration.

Where Misery came from it was called Toffee Sunday and everyone bought lots of toffee. Sadly Misery doesn't eat toffee anymore so no toffee for us.

You are looking as beautiful as ever (as is your mommi)

TwoSpecialWires said...

Awwww. We couldn't comment on the previous post, so we came here. We've gotta come back. It was great getting to know you and your family... what a nice Palm Sunday lunch. Salmon! Our favorite. (We aren't much for the wine, though.) And NOW we know who painted that beautiful painting for Bogart's mom. (We are slowly learning! Thanks for your friendship!)
