Still Standing

Craig got out of work a little late last night, so by the time we finished up dinner, visited the tree lot, then the other tree lot, and came home with the perfect tree, it was getting a little late to start decorating.  

We got the tree into the stand and it's placed in the corner, but that's where we stopped.  As soon as I'm done with this post and return some emails, I'll start stringing the lights.

 Wylla is only mildly curious about the big green beast in the living room.  She did stick her nose under the tree while we were filling up the stand with water,  but she was in the middle of a game at the time, and had to leave to go chase Bean up and down the stairs.

Thankfully, there have been no attempts to climb into the branches or up the trunk.  Of course that may all change once all of the shiny, dangly temptations are on the tree!

But for now, all is going well.  



Last year we had the Loudermilk Boys when tree went up.  Remember their little bell choir?

  2. Our 5 mo old kitten is seeing her first tree this week too - I want to scold her for climbing in it, but it provides so many adorable photo opportunities!… all of that combined with watching her first snowfall from the windows has her in sensory overload, for sure!

  8. Aw. Since you've been letting Ms. Wylla climb trees outside, maybe she thinks it's an outside activity. Or, on the other hand, she might think it's so sweet of you to bring that tree inside for her amusement. Good luck!

  9. My girls never did anything more than chase each other under the tree. It wobbled, but never fell and they weren't interested in the ornaments at all. Guess I got lucky!
