Just the way it's gotta be....

...this year we have opted out of putting a tree up. Well, I should say I opted out of putting a tree up. Ed is still on a 10# weight limit and my shoulder is still giving me fits from the fall I took in October. We are getting old! (Don't be surprised if I do put the tree up afterall!!! I love Christmas trees)

So, since I do not have a 2006 Christmas tree picture to show you I will show you one from 2005. See the package under the tree? As soon as the tree was up and decorated he decided he belonged under the tree...and that is where he could be found if he was in the house, even after we put the wrapped packages under the tree he would still find a way to nestle in a nook or a crannie.

Tomorrow is Open House at the office. Boy will I be DELIGHTED to have this over with for several reasons. This year we cut the time to two hours rather than three, by 7 p.m. tomorrow night I will have been at the office for 12 hrs....and will be ready for the weekend.

What are you up to???

Pretty tree, Pam. We aren't sticking a tree up either but will put lights on an outside tree just like we have done for the last three years. Not worth the trouble, it blocks the front door, etc, etc. I WILL get the nativity set out though. What amd I doing? Trying to get rid of this blasted cold and quilting on the deadline projects.

What a lovely tree, and your furry friend under there is a lovely decoration *ggls*. I hope you're both feeling on top of things soon.

Sweet cat - no messing with the tree, just hiding under it. Cute!

Beautiful tree and a very wise cat! We aren't haing a tree this year cos we are going back to the UK Friday week for 2 weeks and I have no desire to come back and spend the next fortnight on my hands and knees sweeping up pine needles!

Still battling jet lag over here. My Mom loved her little bean pot filled with just a few branches and white lights - so maybe a smaller "tree" is a possibility for you? I have a collection of small crystal trees that I will be putting out in the next few days. Small! The real tree doesn't go up until Christmas Eve -at my sister-in-laws house - so I haven't had a tree of my own in years.
