dia de muertos

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:
upper row left to right: luna, anastasia, opus and roscoe
lower row left to right: emil, sassy, momo, olive

we will always love you.

we got an award!!!

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

and we pass this award on to the following blogs, and angel friends:
angel and kirby
team tabby

PS -  the rules of course do not apply to the angel kitties.

ruis - we are here for you!

while ruis is home now, he still needs purrs from all of you, and some help form nurse OZ and nurse karl.

Monday, May 6, 2013

please send healing purrs to my dear husband ruis!

 +++   update: ruis is home but still very weak   +++
he still needs your healing purrs! thank you!

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!

 fenris, gracie, ollie, mrs. OZ, karl, ruis, charlotte, gigi, scylla, asta. socks, tuiren, angelmomo

everybody is of course invited!
as sergi comes from spain we took that as a hint and have paella and sangria.

so load up your plates with paella and fill your glasses with sangria and have a good time!

surprise party

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:

scylla and socks, charlotte and gigi and angelmomo, asta, gracie and ollie, me and mrs. OZ.
