this year we decided to not go for the whole halloween thing but to celebrate dia de muertos, the day of the dead, a mexican holiday, as we live only 60 minutes north of mexico.
we will celebrate and honor our family members who went to the bridge, and have buildt them a little altar:
after being away from the active blogging world for so long it came as a BIG surprise to us that we got an award nevertheless!
our dear friend islay who is continuing our very dear angel friend charlie's blog gave us the sweet award.
and how sweet of you, islay, to do so. thank you sooo much!
and here are the "rules" that come with it:
1. Thank a blogger for nominating you. thank you, thank you, thank you islay!
2. Include the award image on your blog.
3. Nominate and notify a baker's dozen sweet blogs for this award.
4. Answer 5 Super Sweet questions: Cookies or Cake? i guess there was a misspelling? shouldn't it read "and" not "or"? What is your favorite sweet treat? whip cream When do you crave sweet things the most? i don't understand the question? it almost sounds as if there would be a time when one does not crave sweets??? If you had a sweet name, what would it be? honeysuckle sugarpie
our good friend gracie was hosting the third annual blogosphere trip and thanks to her and my dear husband ruis i, karl got to go along! and now that i am back i finally found the time to make a post about it! we had sooooo much fun, you can read about it at gracie's blog, and there are lots of wonderful pictures also:
as some of you might remember our beloved anastasia used to have "dares" for the whole blogosphere, and one of them was the nomss friend dare: I dare you all to make a not-of-my-species-special-friend.
and you all did and from then on we celebrate noms day every august 5!
ruis heart is not pumping strong enough and he also gets fluids behind his lungs. he is getting medicines
for both now and is still at the vet so they can monitoring him and
give him fluids when needed. if he continues eating (he ate a little bit) and there is no fluid behind his lungs, he can come tomorrow evening!
so please, send healing purrs so he gets better and the medicine will continue to help him!
my husband's family got a new member: a 3 year old podenco named sergi who flew in from a shelter in spain yesterday!
of course the gang got together and organized a surprise party for sergi - but then we boarded the wrong train in amsterdam and after seeing half of europe we were too late but will still have a party - surprise or not! check back for that later - and you are ALL invited!
fenris and tuiren are still riding the train, they were having so much fun they refused to get off the train.... what can i say, they are dogs.
here we are, arriving in the netherlands, at the in-laws place:
