Reading a friend's blog today, she is alerting everyone down to the second of how fast Christmas is approaching.
Whoa, 8 days?
I can't believe how fast this year went by. Last year, I was able to put a Christmas tree up. Picked up one that looked pretty at Target, it was a pre-lit artificial tree. It is a family tradition to put the lights up wrong the first time, so I thought that would be low maintenance! Little did I know that my dog was going to destroy the tree.
Here he is, looking all adorable in front of the tree.
See those ornaments in the background. He thought they were hanging dog treats. I came home one day and saw a couple santas on the ground. Luckily only broke one and took the hook off another.
The next day, he chewed the light cord. He was The Grinch, out to destroy my Christmas.
Now chewing up the lights, I didn't think was so bad. BUT, those buggers were tethered into the tree. Now the tree was a waste.
This year, Ernie got me a sick Christmas tree. 7 Feet!! Owned that shorty tree.
We got the tree late at night from Target, and he thought I would wait until the next day to do all the trimming. Someone was wrong.
I ran for my PJs and starting digging through the ornaments.
At midnight- it was done.
It's hard to get a family shot, when it's just the two of us, so we took turns holding Mochi.
Hopefully this year, he will leave the tree alone!
