The Best Parts of Christmas

Are when I can relax and just enjoy the unusual sights and sounds. Decorating the tree mid morning on Christmas Eve (the latest we've ever put it up, I think) I was able to enjoy everyone else enjoying putting ornaments on. Then I enjoyed putting some on. Then I enjoyed watching the cats' reaction to the whole thing. Especially when Tamlin settled in for his nap on the back of the couch as usual, as if nothing were different...

Wow. We have at least one who have had to try to crawl into some of those boxes before settling down for a nap. Those boxes look undisturbed.

DCup - Yeah, I was surprised we didn't get more "burrowing" than we did, but there were five of us keeping them away from the "stuff" and Tamlin finally settled for being near it, not in it.

We put up our tree on the 23rd. It seems to be later and later every year. I don't mind. I love the tree. And the ornaments are my toys.

Our post-holiday mess is exactly that: a mess and we don't even have cats!
