Princess Nagger and I finally got our Christmas Tree decorated:
In an effort to thwart the Little Dude from absconding with the ornaments off the tree, I put our smaller 6-1/2 foot tree on a table to keep it out of reach. Good thing our ceilings are 10-foot ceilings.
I used to do the tree with all white lights, and all silver and gold decorations. After the arrival of Princess Nagger, the tree has morphed into an eclectic mix of unique and interesting decor:
Were joined by new ones:
Princess Nagger has a thing about birds. They’re the modern day dinosaur you know. We also added this guy:
This cool little Santa controls the lights on the tree – you simply blow on his candle to turn them off or on. Princess Nagger and Little Dude get a kick out of seeing it work. So he’s a little higher up on the branches so they’re not constantly turning the lights on and off, huffing and puffing on the tree like the Big Bad Wolf.
A few hours later I finally had some presents wrapped to put under the tree and table:
The paper strips you see hanging from the tree skirt were taped on there by Princess Nagger – before I infiltrated the space under the table, she was using it as her cat lair/nest. She was (momentarily) mad at me when I took her lair over, but got over it when she realized some of those presents are for her. I still have a lot yet to do in the gift wrapping department, hence the pile’o’stuff and scads of paper to the right. Hopefully it’ll be done by Christmas.
How are your decorations coming along? Or am I so far behind that you’ve been enjoying yours for a couple of weeks by now?
