And so, before I lost all my initiative, I decided to get started on the decorating today. I want to clean up and decorate my livingroom in general, but also, I wanted to get Christmas stuff out this year. We got a lot of things at the end of the season last year, and we never decorated in this house before, so this is the year to start.
Of course, this means I now have to fend the cats away from the tree for a month and a half (just about). So far, Fulgie has been in her cage once and Thyme has been in the cage twice. I think Fulgie has already learned to leave it be, but Thyme might take a few more trips to the cage to get it through to her that this is not some new, really big, really shiny toy for her to jump on and knock over. Argh.
I took some pictures as we were doing things tonight. I had Jack stay in his room for the last touch - the train that I purchased on the sly last year. He had to close his eyes and not come out til I said okay. He was surprised. :D
The rest of the pictures start here, including a very pretty shiny tree. We haven't even added the ornaments yet. I have two or three more boxes to look through that have ornaments, craft supplies, our wreath that we made last year, etc. Fun, fun.
Time to wrap a few presents and hide them away. ;-)
