Our First Birthday Party. . . Ever!

Levon, " Malou! Malou! Stop wrassling. They're here! They're here! "

Levon ,  " Look! It's Pip and his furblings! "

Malou , " Rosie told me she is coming as a panther ! "

Malou , " Ditch the lead Rosie! We are going to pawty , we don't want any obstructions! "

Malou , " Moo Shu told me she was coming as a Princess. Princess Moo Shu. . . we hope you find your prince tonight! "

Malou , " And Lulu also wanted to come as a princess. Princess Lulu , we respectfully courtesy in front of  you! "

Levon, " Look!! There's Pip! He's dressed as a LION! My name means lion! So Cool! Oh and look! Kjelle Bus has also arrived . . .  "

Levon , " Charlie Rascal I almost didn't recognize you. You are Super COOL Cat!! More and more critters are arriving! "

Levon, " There's Henry with his lovely birthday wishes! He'll want to sing karaoke later with Esme (of course! ) :) Malou , we'd better get into our costumes now! "

Malou , " Hmmm. I don't think this wig is quite right and the other half of Levon's moustache keeps falling off. Wardrobe Malfunctions!! "

Malou , " Maybe I should only wear this " over the top" bow . . ."

Levon , " I think we should just sing our song and then efurryone can guess who we are supposed to be."

Malou, "They say we're young and we don't know.
              We won't find out until we grow."

Levon, " Well I don't know if all that's true
               'cause you got me
               and baby I got you . . ."

Malou and Levon , " Babe. I got you babe. I got you babe! "

Malou, " Oh look! Katie Isabella just arrived."

Katie Isabella, " Let the fun begin critters! Queen Marie Antoinette (that's me! ) says ,"Let them eat cake and play, play, play!! "

Malou and Levon, " Ok. We've set up different games for efurryone like this obstacle course for our doggie friends."

Malou, " Or this game of horse shoes for any of our donkey or horse friends."

Malou, " We all love the game Count the Birds on the Wire. So fun! But you can choose any game you like. Just enjoy yourselves!"

Malou , " Efurryone likes to play chase the squirrels! Which usually works up an appetite and thirst so don't forget to help yourselves to some delicious fare. There's plenty for everyone!"

Pink Lemonade to quench your thirst!

You can add a little "nip cube" in your glass for an added "lift"!

                                                             "Dig in! "


Sugar cubes for our donkey and horse friends!

Taffeta Rose, " I think I ate a little too much. . .  And then the nip I brought sent me over the edge! Levon? What do you think of the nip I brought?!"

Levon, " Potent Taffy! I'm really feeling it. Where did you say you got it again?! Wow. We can really chill and enjoy Mehitabel and her band now. Paws off Mehitabel and her band though , ok efurryone? Grab some nip and chill! Look, enjoy but no touching! "

Mehitabel , "Good evening ladies and gents! I'm Mehitabel and my band Mehitabel and The Mouse Trappers are going to rock your socks off this evening! "

Malou , " Wow. That was amazing Mehitabel! And I think I saw a few "love matches" go down tonight. . ."

Levon, " Yup.  Even the flying ceiling mice ??!! are dancing and finding flying ceiling mice love matches! Guess it's time to call it a night.  . .Thank you soooo much for coming!!  Be sure to grab a party favour of your choice as you leave :) "

Hay cubes!

Levon aka Sonny and Malou aka Cher , " And we have you too! We are the luckiest one year olds ever! We hope you had a blast at our pawty!! "

Have a great Thursday.
See you soon.
