The last week and a half has been full of late nights for me as I tried to catch up on getting ready for hte holiday, so it’s no surprise that I was running around the house taking pictures at 1 a.m. to show you a bit of the decorating around the joint. So let’s get on with it, shall we? Because if you are nice enough to be spending your Christmas Eve looking at this blog, I’m not going to make you sit through a wordy post.
The Christmas tree is elderly dog friendly this year. I got a zinc pot (it will be home to a boxwood come spring) and cut down an $8 tree stand to fit inside it, then stuck the tree in there and cut off the bottom branches. The tree is still at least 9 feet tall, maybe 10, but Hudson can walk underneath it with no problem and because it’s super skinny it takes up very little room.
Somehow I have lost the star for the tree. I have no idea how that is possible, but I officially stopped looking for it on Sunday. So this year there is just a bow and I’ll search the after-Christmas sales for a new one.
