Rockin’ New Year’s Eve!


ARE YOU READY?????????   We’re going to start partying tonight and not stop until AFTER my birthday tomorrow!


I’ve been doing some party preparations around here…….typical stuff you need for a New Year’s Eve party you know……….

Getting ready for the new year!

Let’s see….confetti, uh huh…. lampshades in case someone decides to wear one….yep I’m set!

My parents aren’t going anywhere for New Year’s Eve – Mom’s still sickly and while they used to go out to party hearty on NYE in their youth, now that they’re “pawrents of a certain age” they just stay home – watch TV – crack open a bottle of bubbly at some point to toast the new year and go to bed early.  That’s when MY party will start!  YAY! 

Balloons...of course!

Balloons…of course!

Hats - definitely!!

Hats – definitely!!

Remember to stop by my place tomorrow for my birthday party – I know that’s a whole lot of partying for you but we blogging buddies are:


Right??????????  Right!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whatever you do, don’t forget that Savannah from Savannah’s Paw Tracks is having her very first GOTCHA DAY celebration on January 3rd – if you don’t have that pawty on your calendar you’d better put it on there RIGHT NOW!  
Now – go grab some snacks and dance around the living room – just try to do it a little bit quietly so we don’t wake the old folks! 😉  😉

    • Hi Mollie and Alfie! Mom actually feels a bit worse today – go figure. But I’m still making sure she takes care of herself – these things just take time…humans aren’t as hearty as they should be! 😉 Happy New Year to you guys too – see you at my pawty tomorrow!

        • The flu has really bit our area hard this year……I haven’t been sick with flu or a cold or ANYTHING like this in years!!! Some people are a lot more sick than I am….I think I’m on the “downhill side” of it actually but I’m still feeling bad. Today has been fun though with Sam’s birthday celebration – made me smile while I blew my nose and coughed (!!!!).

          Hugs, Pam

        • Hi Nylablue….I’m so sorry your Mom has the flu thing now – it’s a pretty awful thing to get and I think you’re right – these humans are VERY fragile! That’s why they need us to take care of them…I’m sure you will be a great nurse for your Mum if she’s got it now.

          Kitty hugs, Sammy
