VISITORS and a fun weekend!

Have any of you guessed who our mystery visitors were this weekend?????

SURPRISE!!!

It's Miss Tiffy Tippy Toes and Miss Pugnacious P herself, Payton!!!! They're pictured here with their mommies, Michele and Christy, but their daddies were here too along with Payton's Gammy and Gampy! We all had a fabulous afternoon of some yummy lunch and some playtime!!! We had a BLAST!



Payton's beautiful mommy, Christy, handed out banana chips to all of us Puggies!

NOM NOM NOM!!! (you may see Maggie in there too...she was still visiting this weekend!)


I got lots of loves and scritches from everyone....

Payton's Gammy....


Payton's Gampy....


I hung out and had some "dude time" with Payton's daddy, Tim!

So...how 'bout them Cardinals huh?


Everyone was SO NICE and WAAAY too generous and brought PRESENTS!!!


These bags all had stuff for the GROWNUPS! Two on the right were from Payton's peeps and had some fabulous wine, and the ones on the left were from Aunt Michele, Uncle Gerry and Tiffy....it was full of 4 bottles of PINNACLE (whoohoo...party time!)

Tiffy and her peeps stayed the night with us and they "sampled" quite a bit!


This amazing array was from Payton and her peeps!

The pretty red box had homemade coffee cakes (!) inside (mom wants your recipe!), a grain free cookie for me, yogurt drops for me (which are already gone!), a bully stick (NOM!) and a cool rubber squeaky dude with no face named "Cuz"!


Payton's peeps played a funny joke on us....they're from St. Louis and walked in and handed THIS box to mom....(notice the look of utter disgust on my face!)

NOW, Mom and Christy have talked about St. Louis "pizza" and how they use this weird white Velveeta-ish melty cheese called "PROVEL" on it (unless you SPECIFICALLY order mozzarella). Mom and dad were in St. Louis once and got a pizza without knowing this and GAGGED. SO, mom acted very polite and said "Thank you" for the pizza box, but then opened it.....

SURPRISE!!!

No gross pizza! It was full of VOLPI salami from St. Louis! (we are all now BIG FANS of this stuff!)


Mom and dad served lunch for everyone (baked 7 cheese mac and cheese, salad and rolls with cake balls and pumpkin whoopie pies for dessert...sorry...no pics!)
and then brought out something special for Miss Tiffy.....

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY MISS TIFFY!!!!!! Make a wish!!!!


After lunch and playtime, we all got ready to go to Ellie's first birthday party, but first stopped off at Three Dog Bakery!

We all look just like the three puggies in the poster!!! I was afraid we'd be late to the party because I thought people might start asking for autographs!


We were fashionably late to Ellie's birthday party and mom HARDLY got any pics at all!!! (WTF?!) She did get these few though....

This was for the PEEPS....mom made vanilla bean buttermilk cake with raspberry filling and white buttercream frosting. MMMMM!


Here's a group shot waiting for handouts....


PugPosse member GusGus chillin out on the ottoman!



Mom mauling Posse member Pippin (again)



Me with Payton
Mom is LOL'ing and says that Payton is looking at me like "Put your eyeballs back in your head, dude!"


And finally, me with Christy (Payton's mom).


Thank you ALL so much for coming to visit, bringing goodies and for helping to celebrate our friend, Ellie's birthday INDY style!!!! Can't wait to do it again!


NOW....cleaning resumes because we have ANOTHER special visitor arriving today! Stay tuned!

Salinger, dude! I had the best time hanging out at your place on Saturday! You're a real friend too for helping me out at the party. I know all of the ladies around was starting to stress you out, but I hope we can get together again very soon! Mom says the recipe is on it's way via email.
Love,
Payton

What a weekend! You and your peeps so awesome. Thanks again for the foodables, the goodie bag, and letting us crash at your house. I am still trying to finish my birthday cake but Momma is rationing it because she thinks it will make me fat.

I had the best time and can't wait to get together again soon!
