Christmas this year is not anywhere near 'normal' for us because of all the work we've had to put into the house and property, and dealing with the daily problems that come up. All part of moving to the country for the first time, so it has taken more time away from us than we had anticipated. With this in mind, there are only a few decorations around the house and on the tree, and no outside lights at all. Carla also made the tree as cat-proof (unbreakable) as possible because Abby just LOVES climbing into and up it, all the way to the top! Don't believe it? Well, see for yourself (smile) ...

First, let's get all of the Christmas decoration boxes out of storage (whew)!


(Dec 24th, 1999)
Peek-a-boo! Hi Daddy, can I sleep in the tree tonight? Can I, can I, huh? It's really nice up here and I like it a lot! (At this point, Abby was about 1-1/2 feet from the top of a 7 foot tree, loving every minute of it!)


(Dec 24th, 1999)
Now, we have the 'unbreakably decorated' tree, while it's still looking nice. Like the Santa Hat as a tree topper? We did! And ... I think we'll leave well enough alone, as far as the trees current condition is concerned. We're sure all of you cat owners out there are familiar with the Christmas tree routine (smile).

"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care ...".
One for Cookie, Don, Carla and Abby.

Carla got a bit creative in her 'non-breakable decoration' mode, and made all of the doors inside the house look like wrapped gifts. Nice work sweetheart!
