It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Slowly but surely we are getting the house ready for Christmas.

Saturday, I put up our upside down tree, which is decorated with our Hanukkah decorations. For the record, a Hanukkah tree is not a thing, and we are not Jewish, we just celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas.


Sunday we got as far as putting up the Christmas tree. It is not decorated yet. Getting the 15 foot tree up and the lights working is a feat unto itself, made worse by the mice got into one part and made a nest, so there was a lot of vacuuming required. To get this tree up and the leaves looking more or less acceptable took an hour and a half. At this point, the Man had to start cooking for our Grey Cup feast (Grey cup is the Canadian football teams Super Bowl). In the next week or so we should be able to get it done.

  2. Pigeon says there were rodents getting into our tree a couple of years ago. They chewed up a lot of the wires, and Momma had to get a whole new tree! We're glad you managed to preserve yours.

  5. I always get a chuckle at your upside down tree...Dr. Seuss would love this and maybe he even wrote a rhyme about it?!

  10. We LOVE that upside down tree! It might last a nanosecond around the Ranch with the two clodhopper Knuckleheads. 😆

  11. Good for you for getting started on the decorating! We haven't started yet. I have never seen an upside down tree. Why do I feel like one of the cats would try to climb a tree like that in our house.

  13. We love that upside down tree - very unique and so pretty. The other tree is huge!!! We had ours set up for a few days with just the lights so Mom could get all the shaping of the branches done. But it is fully decorated now, complete with the manger scene. But that's about as far as she got. One day at a time, she tells us.

  14. We love the upside down tree! No tree for us this year. The mom doesn't want to decorate since we'll be moving soon.

  15. I'm not sure I am going to put up a tree this year, it will be my first Christmas alone and I'm feeling a little blue. But the collies will still get presents from Santa, with or without a tree!
