Auld Lang Syne my Deews

No one is having a pawty, so Lacie and I decided to just go fow a quiet dwink to celebwate the NewYeaw..

(and hope that maybe some of ouw fwiends show up)

Thinking about ouw deew fwiends, those who awe wif us, and those who left us this yeaw but awe staying in ouw heawts fuwwevew made me a little sad, but also hopeful fow the coming yeaw.

This yeaw bwought new fwiends galowe..
Sweet biwfs, and wescoos and stowies of pwogwess fow many who had such howwibull beginnings.
We also had to say fawewell to some of ouw deewest fwiends, I will nevew fowget them and know in my heawt that we will all be togethew again someday, so I have hope..........
Hope fow a bwightew tomowwow fow fuwwkids and theiw pawents.

Lacie and I sang Auld Lang Syne and toasted all of you

the song is genewally intewpweted as a call to wemember long standing fwiendships

(auld lang syne literally means "old long since", but a more idiomatic English translation would be something like "long long ago","days of long ago", or "olden days". "For old times' sake," or "to the (good) old days," or "To days(or times) gone by")

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

I am so vewy gwateful to have all of you as my fwiends and my hope fow the New Yeaw is that you all stay Healthy and Happy and ouw fwiendships gwow even mowe

I have this Santa hat fwom my twinny Nicky and sissie Jenny, and while it's bootiful, I was anxious to take it off and let Santa weaw it and show up at my house

It was not ouw oosual big Bootiful Chwissmuss wif all the hooman fwiends and welatives and big white tablecloth dinnew...

but a quiet , family one..my wheelie sissie Mywna and hew baby giwl Womy came out to see the twee and sing cawols wif me and flat Ewic..then they had to wush off to go to the Buwg to be wif Gilbewt and Bewtie at Mumsie's house

I twied to get dwessed in a celebwatowy way..couldn't decide between the gween ow the pink at fiwst..I didn't have a bootiful Owange wibbon

but mommi at least put on nice Chwissmussy lights to get us in the mood

then my Bwuvvew Duffy came to help me celbwate

Thewe was cheese and smoked salmon..two of ouw favowites

miammmmmmm, miammmmmmm

then thewe wewe gifts fow us..the hoomans didn't do gifts, but the essentials wewe thewe, hehehe...aftew all Chwissmuss is fow Childwen, fuwwy ow not

Daddi can't get enough of watching us

when Duffy went home, I felled asneep on Daddi's lap..the best!

chwissmuss is too exciting..it takes a lot out of a pup

Mommi stayed up to watch the fiwe aftew Daddi and I went to sneep and thought about ouw genewous , sweet fwiends and how gwateful she is to have you in ouw lives

a last cup of hot chocolate in a cup wif Lacie's face on it and she was weady to join us

the next mowning, I finally got to open my secwet Santa pwesent fwom sweet Maggie and Mitch(Mommi took it out of the packing box and put them in a bootiful bag that we still had fwom Ewic and his squawes, cause she knows I love to stick my head in bags, hehehe)

A special thanks to Sally fow owganising this secwet Santa pwessie exchange!!!

Thank you so vewy vewy Much Maggie and Mitch! I love the yummie cookies(lots of fwuity flavows), the cool stuffed bone which should take me a few houws to finish, heheh
the big owange wubbew squeekie(that should wake mommi up, hehehe) and the soft destuffed stuffie..it's almost too bootiful to munch..but you know I will

I wowe my destuffed chipmunk (fwom my dawling little Bwuvvew Duffy..it makes an elegant stole in the cold fow a lady, hehehe) while wowking on eating my faboolous bone

All in all , it was pawfect chwissmuss thanks to my deew fwiends !

I hope all of you had a gweat Chwissmuss and awe getting some gweat playtime and west

Ambassadowial Visit fwom ovew the Big Pee

Just feast youw "mince pies" on this scene (as my dawling fwiend Ewic would say)
Look who's giving me tummie mooshies!
It's his Squawe Mom at my house all the way fwom ovew the big pee. WOOOOT!! (thanks Wuby fow that wowd)

a celebwatowy dinnew was held in the Squawe's honow , wif the attendance of my auntie Kawen and Bwuvvew Duffy
Mommi was in chawge of helping Me and Duffy taste the food befowe it was given to ouw most inpawtant guests
I wouldn't want to poison such special hoomans

accowding to Miss Enid's advice on Ate a Cat, using a pwopew linen napkin is de wigow(that's fwench fow ess enshall)

Squawe Ewic was dwessed in his festive, hat and insisted on keeping it on all thwough the evening ( I'll have to ask Miss Enid if that's pwopew? in my weading of the Ate a Cat book, boys may not weaw hatses indoows, but pawhaps Chwissmuss geaw is an exception to this wule)

Ewic had a good laugh wif ouw two Daddis..I pwefew giwl talk , so didn't join in

Even though it's not Chwissmuss yet, we weceived noomewous fantastic giftses and couldn't wait to open them

I weceived a fantastic toy that gets filled wif tweats and keeps me busy fow houws!!!!!
(this was just the tip of the giftbewg)

Squawe Mom admiwed ouw bootiful collaws that she bwought us
Duffy got one this time, and I think we awe soopew styling in them (they came all the way fwom Pawee,Fwance)

I've been pwoudly weawing mine since my last meeting wif Squawe mom in Boston

all the excitement made us a tiny bit tiwed and a nap was in owdew

I wegained my enewgy as soon as evewyone left
(Flat Ewic stayed the night and he and I stayed up singing Chwissmuss Cawols to Mommi's delight, hehehe)

any wequests?

OK Ewic , a one, a two, ........LAlalalalalalalalala

How was that?

the next evening Mommi and Daddi took a cab to whewe the Squawe's wewe staying , to meet wif auntie Jane, and auntie Kawen and be tweated to dinnew at a bootiful Westauwant

They stayed to gab till the wee houws of the night

dessewt and dwinkies wewe eaten in the lobby pawt of theiw hotel (OK only cewtain piggie Mommo's had the dessewt pawt), but she did shawe wif Flat Ewic , who was lucky enuff to be thewe

He is the most social and ewoodite of pups..
I am so honowed that he and his squawes came to visit us

Pee ess check out this bloggie..it's weally cool if you want to visit NY and like Nick and Nowa Chawles and Asta

We awe sooo lucky to have met and become good fwiends wif so many wondewful hoomans and theiw pups all doo these bloggies.
We awe so vewy gwateful to Gweg and Bwook fow making ouw lives wichew wif these fwiendships.

I just wead that DWB is on hold fow the time being..Big Chawlie's cwossing the Bwidge a few momfs ago, has made it hawd fow Gweg to continoo fow now.

Pleez go and tell them how gwateful we awe fow theiw wowk.
We've shawed ouw love, and joys and teaws, and all of it was made bettew because of the fwiends we've made.

Thank you fow that
love and smoochie kisses
