Birthday Bash!

PARTY UPDATES: THE PARTY CONTINUES ALL WEEKEND - NEW ENTERTAINMENT HAS BEEN ADDED - STAY AS LONG AS YOU WANT

Be sure to check out LOL I have been featured there today! Thanks Wendy!

The Auction Fundraiser for Fiona is having a give away promotion! Get there from my sidebar link and put in a bid for a chance to win a personal gift chosen for you.

It's here! It's now! It's today! It's my first birthday! I have waited so long for this day to arrive and share it with my dear friends. I am so glad that you could join me today. I wasn't sure what to do for my birthday so I had a poll on my sidebar and with 91% voting for a party hardy time that is what we will all do today!


I want to personally welcome each and every one of you who have stopped by today. If there is anything that you can think of that you need and don't see just let me know and I will see what I can do to make it so.



Opus and Olive, my nephew and niece from Italy, were the first across the sea visitors to arrive. It was great to have them stateside. This is the first time that we are meeting and I am looking forward to our visit. I hope they can stay a few extra days before they have to get back home. I want to take them to a local restaurant in town called Bandidos, a favorite place of our moms.



This is a no present party but those two brought me a gift all the way from Italy. One of the things I liked about their gift was that I didn't need the mom to help me open it. I did it all by myself. To my surprise I found a cute birthday hat with candles on it, I am going to wear it for my profile photo for the day. Thanks you two that was so sweet of you to bring me a special birthday hat.



Oh my gosh! Just when I thought the Italians were done surprised they whipped out this birthday card they made for me. This is an extra special card as I know that Opus doesn't like to wear the wigs but in honor of his brother, Roscoe, he put on the infamous wig to make him a part of our special day by keeping him in our thoughts and heart. Roscoe is missed but know how much he would be enjoying the party today. Be sure to keep those that have gone to the bridge near you and never forget the love you shared.


At 6:40am a special delivery came from Opus and Olive. I received a boquet of cat-n-the-hat balloons, a TON of beautiful, pink roses, and a potrait of me that Ollie made! Oh I am so overwhelmed, I love everything and the potrait is fantastic!! Also there was a box with a note on it that said, "There is one more surprise in the box, but that is not to be opened untill later." I haven't a clue what it is and can hardly wait.

 I feel like peeking but I am afraid that I might get caught. Wonder when later is?

The first from the good old USA to arrive was Karl's gang, all the way from The Cat Realm in Arizona. It was so nice to meet all of them. I have heard many stories about them and it is always nice to put a furry face with the stories.  Told all this was a no present party but the cats at the Realm brought me presents beyond my wonder. I am thinking with all of these treavel presents that there adventures in the future! This is great because I have been wanting to do some traveling with the old CCSI gang. Now I will be ready.


My gifts from the kitties at The Cat Realm includes all of my travel must have needs. My own 5 piece set of lugguag, a personalized purse, personalized coffee mug, personalized sunglasses (just like the Cat Realm gang), and my very own already programmed iphone.


I bigiefied the iphone so you could see the keys better.

Sailing in a hot air balloon and bringing party balloons with her all the way from Australia Momo arrives ready to party hardy. She is one of my oldest and dearest friends. We go back a long ways. It will be fun catching up all the things that we girls like to do when we are together.we girls like to do when together.


Photo by Asta

Arriving all the way from busy NYC was my dear friend Asta and she brought birthday wishes with her. She had a surprise waiting for me over at her place, her gift to me was asking if I would be her sissie. It took a half of a millisecond before I said YES! I have a sister and her name is Asta!! This is something we have talked about for a long time, with Momo too, and what a purrrfect day to make it so. Hey Momo are you ready?

This day is so exciting day as the gang now is all here. Yes, that is correct the whole gang is here. You see Ruis arrived earlier but I have been unable to catch him for a photo. Be on the lookout and when you know where he is please let me know. To be all together again! Fantastic, that is the bestest of the best birthday presents there is!



Another friend I would like you all to meet is my special guest of the day. His name is Barney and he lives at The House of Cats. We are becoming good friends and plan to have lots of adventures together as we look forward to all of the exciting things offered in this life.  Afraid that two kitties so young might get into mischief
 my Squillion has decided that we need a chaperon.



This is my birthday gift from Barney. I guess the memo about no gifting didn't go out, I thought it did.



To get you in the spirit of the Dr. Sesuss theme party here is your party hat. It is yours to take home with you when you leave.


Before you head over to the table to get your plates that you will need for your food stop by and check out my birthday cake, it was made special just for me.


There is plenty of food, I have a wide variety quaranteed to have something that you will like. Help yourself and please come back for more as many times as you want.


You will not want to miss out on the many fruit kabobs. Delicious . . .

. . . also there is a great assortment of appetiizers . . .

. . . for the main meals you will find scrimp kabobs, vegetable kabobs, fish kabobs, & beef kabobs . . .

. . . for something guaranteed to fill you up you will find a deluxe-deluxe hamburger, lobster & filet mignon, tuna steak, and chicken parmesan.  Don't forget to pick up your drink to go with your meal.



Offered for you to choose from are milk shakes of many flavors.When you are all done and ready head back to the cake table for a slice.


For our older crowd there is alcohol available. You must have identification before you can be served. This is something that needed to be done since there are so many younger kitties here. I wouldn't want them to get into trouble with their moms if they have the adult stuff to drink.


When you are done eating we have many activities that you can check out. The first one is a favorite of mine, you might want to have your camera ready for this one. You just stick your head through the hole in The Cat In The Hat's face and have a friend snap your photo. Too funny, you are now the TCITH.


There are also card games, matching games, ball games including soccer for your enjoyment. Pick a partner and see how much fun you can have playing some of these games.


Front cars l-r: Asta, Momo, Mrs. Oz. Barney, Gracie, Opus, & Olive
Back car front l-r: Edna, Notty, & Tintin
Back car top: Karl, Coco, & Ruis

The best activity is the Green Eggs And Ham Train Ride with unlimited riding on the train all the day and night long. Our gang rode the train so many times that we lost count. Way too much fun! (Did anyone notice that Mrs Oz is keeping a close eye on Barney and me?)


The Band l-r: Karl, Olive, & Opus
Audience l-r: Momo, Ruis, Gracie, & Asta

If you are still feeling full after all of the good food and need to work some of it off we have Guitar Hero World Tour to add to our entertainment. You can sing, dance, play, or watch the band work their magic.

Party favors for my kittie friends.

You are welcome to stay as long as you like but before you leave don't forget to take home with you your party favors that I personally chose. I thought carefully on this and came up with special gifts for my kittie and doggie friends. This is one gift per guest, so if you came with your brother or sister everyone gets their own gift to take home. Yeah, your very own gift. That is my way of thanking you for coming.


Party favors for my doggie guests.



A party favor for your mom or dad.

I think a lot of the time we forget that our mommies and daddies work so hard to give us a nice home so I have a party favor for you to take home to them. I think they will enjoy the reading. That is my thank you to them for letting you be at my place today.




The day is ending, though I don't want it to, but there still are fireworks for us all to enjoy. I am trying to concentrate on the fireworks but I seem to keep checking out Barney, please don't tell him this. Don't you all just think he is adorable? Boy I sure do. I am wondering if he enjoyed his day with me. What do you think?

Thank you all so much for stopping by and sharing in my first birthday with me. This meant a lot to me. Just think only 365 more days to go before my next birthday and we can party again.

Parker said...

If we didn't have birthdays, you wouldn't be you.
If you'd never been born, well then what would you do?
If you'd never been born, well then what would you be?
You might be a fish! Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob! Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes!
Or worse than all that.....
Why you might be a WASN'T.
A Wasn't has no fun at all. No he doesn't.
A Wasn't just isn't. He just isn't present.
But you..... You ARE YOU!
And now isn't that pleasant?

Smoochies to you Gracie!

Martha and Bailey said...

We came to wish you a very very Happy Birthday Gracie.
Asta told us you were one today!!!!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi Gracie!! My mom posted a comment here earlier but it isn't here - I don't know what happened!! Anyway, I am going to try and remember it. Let me think, I said how beautiful you were, and how fun your party is! And I talked about how even though the fireworks are beautiful, all I wanted to do the whole time was hold paws with you, but I knew it would be too soon. Mom is going to post about your awesome party later, and Kirzon will stop by when he is out of the Vets. Virgil and Danielle are here having a great time - I think they are keeping a secret eye on us. Even Lola is having a good time!! She likes all the handsome mancats who are here!! I hope you are having a wonderful fun day! I know you had said no gifts, but I am so glad you liked your present!!

Lots of kitty purrs and smooches (for your bithday - nothing racy!)

Goodness Gracie! It's your purrthday! What a lucky girl you are, such a wonderful party your Mom had for you.
We came by earlier to say hello, but the ZH can't remember if she left a comment, cause someone knocked on the door and she hit the wrong button on her 'puter.
And so, here we are again! And this time the ZH says she's not going thru 82 (OMC, 82!) comments to see if she did leave one... but then come to think of it, who wouldn't want extra purrthday wishes. You're the bestest, and you got a bestest Mom and home, too!
Your friends: Maggy and Zoey from Zoolatry
