it spoke to me ...

We bought our 2009 Holiday tree. It's a six foot instead of our usual eight. The boys decided they wanted to be able to put the top star on without getting a ladder. It was fun. Like it usually is. I walk around the lot .. several times .. seeing this one and that .. the three times I walked by this tree .. it spoke to me. You know how they do that. So, now it is my lovely Holiday tree. I will enjoy coffee while watching the lights in the meowning. I will sit by it and read by the the fake fireplace. I will put my beloved cat ornaments on it ... I have several of them but two are in memory of my Siamese Girls ... I truely enjoy putting my tree together.

I'll post pics of what it looks like all dressed up .. later .. til then ... just imagine what fun I'm having today ... on this still frozen Sunday meowning ...

Aren't I lucky ... the life I live ... Wow Meow ^,,^

Pretty! Hey the other day I was going to leave a comment but I couldn't find your comment link? It's there now so I don't know what happened?

That is a gorgeous tree and I can't wait to see how you dress it! I had a problem with mine yesterday because the lights on it suddenly went out. Now I have to buy some new lights and feed them on to the tree without disturbing anything else. Oh my!
Blessings, Star

Oh so pretty! Last night I was enjoying watching Meisha under our tree while I finished up Christmas cards. She loves sitting under the tree. We had to gate the living room off form the dogs though. Bandit has "marked" it several times and the tree is ARTIFICAL this year!!!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
