Day 51 and 53 - Beginning to Look Like Christmas

I am behind on my posting as you may know, but I'm not going to post them all on one post - that would be too much. So here is are days 51 and 53 - we are starting to look like Christmas.

We put up our Christmas tree which is always a bit of a battle. It is about seven and a half feet tall and takes up half our living room, but I love it; I wouldn't give it up! And of course, our cats love it too. They want to chew and climb and play in it. It's a battle I finally realize I am probably never going to win so I just keep the squirt bottle close and dowse them with water when they start climbing. Anyway, I was going to just put white lights on the tree this year, but Josh suggested red and green, and I think it turned out really nice, don't you?

In keeping with the Christmas theme, we got our first snow the following day. Now, I love fall. I love fair weather - 70 degree days and 50 degree nights are my favorite. After Christmas, I will long for these again, but for now, as the holiday draws nigh, I can't help but be super excited about the accumulation of the white stuff on one of our trees.

More to follow dear friends. I know you are waiting with anticipation. Try to contain it; more will come soon!
