The annual unveiling of the family jewels
Well, yesterday was exciting. Dave is still working on the basement play room and he sliced open his hand doing the wiring. So we spent part of last night in the urgent care getting him sewn back together. 7 stitches, 2 hours and plenty of whining about missing dinner from the Jack attack later, we were back home.
And here I thought it would be ME needing the hospital sooner rather than later!
When I showed you the tree the last time some of you thought I was done. Except I still had to put another 300 ornaments on it! (And it could still use more, but I ran out of steam.)
I actually love that someone has written "10" on that pink one with a grease pen.
The birds that Jack is so smitten with are on this tree too this year.
A random peek inside.
And a bell that *I* am smitten with this year.
The cats are driving me INSANE with the tree this year. My fattest cat (who weighs like 20 lbs) thinks it's fun to stand on his hind legs and reach up in the tree and scratch on the pole. Which shakes the whole tree and gives me a heart attack. Then the other two naughties WILL NOT STOP EATING THE PLASTIC NEEDLES which, of course, then they run all over the house puking up everywhere.
It's sad that I can easily teach kids to leave it alone but the cats are my worst enemy!
I kind of can't wait to take the darn thing down, as beautiful as it is.
Speaking of taking it down - some of you have asked on facebook about the heart to heart swap this year. I have every intention of doing it this year, baby or not. I will announce the details as soon as Christmas is over and open up sign ups then.
Barbara, I knew there was a deer ornament on that tree somewhere!
