TUXY TUESDAY WITH DOMINO: HOLIDAY HO-HO-HOSTESS!

Domino was on duty as hostess again last Saturday night when Mommy had a couple of her friends over for a Christmas dessert party.

Of course, we started off in the living room which is decorated to the gills (although there was absolutely nothing fishy about it).  The mantle was set with a flourish, and the fire was lit.  The tree was luminous in all its glory.


Here is Domino dressed in her Minnie Mouse outfit, waiting for guests to arrive.  I couldn't find her red and white Santa dress, so I just settled for red with polka dots.

This is the mantle dressed to the nines -- although I think it's really a 10 out of 10!


The centrepiece is a Jim Shore Santa holding a kitty that looks a little like Dylan.  To his right, there are two other playful kittens frolicking on the edge.

Here's another shot of our Christmas tree, but look what's on top ...

... why, it's a Santa kitty of all things!  Who would've thought?



There's another large Santa PURRched on an end table beside the tree, and another tiny green Santa holding a kitty right in front.

Domino likes this ornament the best, because it looks just like her.  She wouldn't mind having red boots like that either -- they're very fashionable.  Auntie Carm (aka Crazy Cat Lady Carm) gave us this ornament last year.  We just love it!


Then the first guest arrives.  It's Auntie Susan, and she brought gifts.

"Yeah!  And dis is wot I got!!!", exclaims Domino.  You can see how pleased she is.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

And just when she thought that was it, we hauled out the Santa hat to complete the look.  Domino was just ecstatic!

As long as we didn't cover her ears, Domino was a happy girl.

"Oh, yoo fink so, do yoo?", says she.  "Well, yoo gots anudder fink comin'!"



When Auntie Renate arrived, Domino was so glad to see her that she ran over and jumped on her lap.

First thing Auntie Renate did was to remove her cap.  "I jus' loves Anty Renate!", says Domino.


Then it was time for dessert.  Here's Auntie Susan showing off the home-baked chocolate pecan tarts.

And Mommy took a picture of her mini cheesecakes with strawberry sauce (flavoured with ginger and orange rind).  Every guest got one and took home whatever was left.  Mommy also made an apple pie with crumble topping but forgot to take a picture of it.

While the guests enjoyed their desserts and watched a movie afterwards ...


... Domino in her cap, had just settled down for a long winter's nap!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
