What Happened Before Christmas!

Random images from the week before Christmas!

When you need to take the tag off the top of the Christmas tree, which makes more sense? To have the tall guy reach it, or have his short sister stand on his knee, hang onto his head, and stretch? Yeah, that's what happened.
Of course, the girls made Christmas cookies.
These were some of them. Mom got wild animal cookie cutters for her birthday, so our Christmas cookies were moose, porcupines, squirrels, and other things, rather than traditional silly things like trees and angels.
And Doug the Fish! I've never had fish! So who'd have believed that one of our kids had an aquarium in his closet? Doug likes this better than the Rubbermaid container.
And our tree was ready tor the festivities on Christmas Eve!
More updates when I have a few minutes more, and can select a few more pictures!

Pretty tree! Tell your sweet boys that my dogs appreciate them putting in a good word with Santa. They got lots of toys and were pretty good most of the day.

It looks like the girls has lots of fun making the cookies - my dear Mum laughed when I showed her the photo.

And it is great to see all the garlick on the tree, but what on earth was Cass doing to Mark?

Zebby got a new catnip scratch board to demolish - he just doesn't know it yet!

The tree looks lovely and it is so good to have many helpers. At times like Christmas I so miss not having any family any more, that is of course other than N :) Diane

Your tree is bigger than my house. I love it. But then...with all those presents, you need a giant tree. Merry Christmas. Doug is quite the handsome dude.
