Our New Tree!

It was actually snowing quite a bit earlier today. The flakes are no longer falling but the sky still has that snow-promising gray look to it. We had some light flurries early last week. Seeing snow in late November/early December makes me wonder if our winter is going to be filled with it.

A few years ago we gave away our Christmas tree. It seemed like too much trouble to drag out the 6-foot tree and ornaments only to put everything away again in a few short weeks. So, for the last 7 or so years we have not put up a Christmas tree. I did display some of my favorite ornaments and decorations around the house.

This year I got into a "we need a Christmas tree" mood. I finally found the perfect one at Target. It is a 4 1/2 foot tree that doesn't look "too fake". It was also 1) pre-lit and 2) on sale!

The Christmas tree was also going to be a *new thing* for the cats. I wasn't sure what they would do......ignore it or try to climb it. For the most part, they ignore it; although it is sitting in front of one of *their* windows. Here are a few pictures...............

Our old house has tall ceilings so a 4 1/2 foot tree could easily become "lost"; so I sat it on a table to give it the appearance of being a bit taller.

Toby isn't going to let a Christmas tree keep her from looking out the window..................

..........and Tater takes his turn under the tree.
