Home Spun comic strip #298

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has a bottom heavy tree every Christmas! Thank you for your comments! Sorry I'm slow to answer lately. I hope to have some pictures up soon of what we've been doing with our busy lives!

Usually, by the time the tree has been up for a week, there is a definite band of bare branches on our tree. This is the tree's "No Ornament's Land." Above these barren boughs are the fragile decorations, tightly secured. Below are all of the toy decorations and unbreakables. This works well for toddlers and less adventurous cats. As Sierra has gotten older we've had a more evenly decorated tree, but having cats assures that we will always have the endless pleasure of trimming our tree throughout the Christmas season!

I'm happy to announce that we have a printer again. I know this is exciting for those of you who have been following our technology woes. Our printer was the first to give up the ghost. One of our friends passed an old Epson to us. Maybe I'll actually get a few cards together before Christmas! Keep your fingers crossed...

I remember those days....

For George's early Christmases we used bows and silk Christmas balls. Ah, the ever friendly trees of years gone by...

This year will be interesting as with twelve cats, many still in that curious kitten stage, and a new puppy, I figure the tree will probably get knocked over a few times.

I wouldn't want it any other way ;-)

Peace and Laughter!

My youngest has been quite the handful this year with the tree. The dog sideswiped it today and nearly knocked the entire thing over as he was in an awfully big hurry to get to the front door (the magical words "Do you need to go potty?" were said). I can't imagine having indoor cats to deal with too. I'm sure it makes for lots of laughter and memories. :o)

when the boys were little they would decorate the tree and hang all their ornaments on the very front of the tree in the region they could reach (which was pretty small). we called that "the sweet spot". ;^)
