Good morning everyone! I'm feeling good this morning because I finally managed to spread some Christmas cheer around Muriel. I've been a little slow off the blocks this year and December just seemed to appear out of thin air! I love this time of year but it just streams by so quickly!
I managed to have the tree up in the first weekend, but I didn't progress any further than putting lights on it. Although the tree doesn't look too bad with just lights, I always like to have a well dressed tree to herald the holiday season.
I think it looks so cheery with all of its finery! And a few presents underneath certainly help as well :) I don't have a particular 'theme' for decorating (especially because we don't have that many decorations as it is) but I make sure that all of my favourites are there. Like this bear ornament that we picked up in the States back in '08:
A few decorations have also found their way around the house away from the tree- but nothing too fancy. After all, anything that is within paw reach needs to be Oreo-proof- or at least not too precious!
He is especially found of eating the lights on the tree- if anyone has any bright ideas about how to stop him from doing this, I'd be much obliged! I bought this little tree in the sales as well. I have it on the kitchen bench so I'm hoping Oreo doesn't find it because the tiny ornaments are definitely small enough to swallow!
