Looking more like Christmas

Today we finally decorated our Christmas tree. A tree this size doesn't take nearly the number of ornaments or lights that the more statuesque versions we have had the previous five years did, especially when you don't decorate clear to the bottom.

If you look closely, you will see some small gifts tucked up in the branches, and a notable lack of gifts UNDER our tree. Well, except for the occasional furball of a boy's birthday gift - the reason no package would be safe for long....

Like the decorations above our fireplace? Not many people have a velvet OB sleeve "Christmas stocking." Gotta love life with a large animal vet....

That's it for now at . . .

Funny - our tree has the same number of presents under it as your's, only our chewer is a cat! Becky and I both loved the picture of Jackson crawling under the sofa to be with his Boy. That is one of the most precious puppy pictures I think I have ever seen.

Love the glove, I think you could start a new tradition with that one.

We have had many a tree like that (bottom bare). At the least, the unbreakable ornaments are down low and the more precious up high, that was until the cats decided this new "tree" was easier to climb than those past. Another reason our tree is still bare. Ho ho hum ;-)

I have one of the cats planted under the tree...same one each year - Ziggy. But I can't put the skirt down as our poor old Max may use it for "other" things.

What a neat picture of Jackson.
