Hot(M)BC said...

Eric and Flynn, yeah, finally. That was hard. I got out of it twice and Mom put it back. I finally got rid of it for good, tho! --Pepi

Eric and Flynn said...

Good furr you Pepi. The mum's don't seem to realise that a mancat has to keep up appearances do they.

Hot(M)BC said...

Nope, they don't get it. *sigh*
::slurps some niptini:: ah well

Eric and Flynn said...

Yep, it's tough being a mancat sometimes, but somecat has to do it, don't you agree?

Alexi said...

We's glad you like the toona crackers. The ham cookies are so go-o-o-d. They make a nice complement to the nip-tinis. We hope you like Mallory's cheese naps. Molly tried one with the fresh mouse. They are good together!

One-Eyed Jack said...

Hi! We're here! We had to purr mommy awake first before we could go, or she'd just sleep the WHOLE day!

Thank you for inviting us Krasota kitties!

Hey Persephone and Jack ::waves paws::

Alexi said...

Red counts as a rose color today. Are you okay from the hat attack? Our beans haf to leave after 4:30 but they left us in charge...dangerous, isn't it. They'll be back sometime this evening after they go to the steeple place. There's a Krismouse pageant...and party. Wonder if there's a cat in the pageant? We hope so!

Astrid, Kashim & Othello said...

Eric and Flynn said...

Hi Jack and Persephone, good to see you.

Alexi said...

Hello all, this is Alexi's Mombean. Before Blue Cat man and I leave for our party, I wanted to read a couple of verses from Isaiah (9:6-7)and then light the three Advent candles.

:::Mombean reads::::
For unto a child is born, unto a son is given: and the government sholl be upon his shoulder: and and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the everlasting Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth for ever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.

::: Mombean strikes match and lights two purple and the rose candle in the Advent wreath:::

Mombean: We're leaving for our party. Be good. We will clean up. Alexi is in charge! She is a very responsible girl!!

Derby said...

I like being an only cat. That way I get all the goodies and get spoiled.

Eric and Flynn said...

Artsy Catsy said...

Oh, we're so very sorry we missed the reception! I've been so busy decorating our Christmas tree (finally) and helping my human artist make bookmarks that time slipped away. Maybe I can have my staff help you clean up?

Rocky

Alexi said...

OK, We will keep the food out a little longer. My beans are decorating the Krissmouse twee. You wuld fink that they wuld put me in charge of that. I am snoopervising their activities... as always!

Alexi said...

Rocky, when everyone teleports home, my staff wuld appreciate any assistance cleaning up.

Victor Tabbycat said...

Oh noes! Are we too late? Mom was gettin stuff ready to mail out! Our tree is up, but it's not deckorated yet. Dad's been in the basement all day, werkin on an X-am. Um, I can help make crumbs disappear!

Purrrrrrs, China Cat

Alexi said...

Hello ALL,
Mom bean said the buffet is still step up complete with yummy food treats. We made plenty! The bar is closed as Herbie had to go to bed. So no more niptinis. They were especially good... fanks to the fresh nip prezunt. We have plenty of hot tea, hot chocolate, or coffee for yu. Mom bean is drinking hot tees she has developed a cold and laryngititis.

Alexi said...

The food and beverages will be available for a while longer (until about 11:30 PM EST then the beans are going to bed! Dad bean has to work tomorrow). When you leafs, please take home some yummy treats wif yu. There seems to be a lot of ham left! I do beleev the niptinis were the hit of the party!

Tomorrow, Mom bean said she will post a pic to our blog that you all can take as a reminder.

Willow said...

Your hot tea is delicious - our mom always drinks hot tea. China Cat and I certainly hope that your mombean feels better - hot tea should help. We'll come back and visit later - thanks for having us to your reception.

Purrrrrrs, Willow

Alexi said...

Hi, China Cat and Willow! Welcome! It's not too late...at least according to me!! Plenty of food!

Sorry for being late.... but better late than never, right?

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Dearest Miss Alexi and the Krasota kitties. I was away in a magical Chrisymas village this whole weekend and missed you wonderful party. But after all of you were asleep, I came to see you and blew out the pretty candels on your Advent wreath. I got home so late, I almost didn't make my own candel lighting...it was 15 minutes till midnight and I lit them and they burned until I went to bed at 2:30. Tell your beans that I really enjoyed being here even if all was quiet. COme read about my adventures all this week.
Love Miss Peach
