Holiday Pictures!!!

This is Lola's first holiday season & Booger's first holiday with a tree!! (Last year we had a fake 2 foot tree). Here are some pictures of their first tree & the first fire of the season!

Our cat Spooky LOVES the new hiding spot with all the shiny, dangly stuff.

Booger quickly plops down in front of the fire

Happy Holidays to all!!

Awwww! Well done, it's beautiful!

Beautiful tree! Glad the pups like it too.

Wonderful tree, but I have to ask, how do you keep the b's from "sprinkling" on it?

Do you think the tree will stay intact for a few weeks?

Hey luckily my boy squats when he pees so I don't need to worry about our tree being sprinkled. HA!

I've just been keeping a close eye. They normally go potty in ivy & wooded areas, and I think its bushy enough & the bottom boughs are low enough it discourages them. I have more trouble keeping them from knocking the bulbs off. Between them & the cat (who thinks its a GIANT cat toy), I've had to pick up about 15 ornaments & put them back on the tree. There is evidence that an ornament broke & Andrew tried to clean it up so I wouldn't notice. I found a little red glittery shard on the floor! I don't know how they broke an ornament on carpet!
I'm hoping it will last, but I expect it to be quite a bit shabbier by Christmas. Fortunately we won't have to drag it far to get it out of the house, so hopefully not too many needles!!!

We have always had a "real tree". Never had a sprinkle problem. Had to revert to toddler phase when decorating. Anything breakable or had a special meaning, goes up to about 4 foot high on the tree.

aww man Im soo Jealous of the laying by the fire picture….thats where I wanna be RIGHT NOW!! hehehee
