Thankful Thursday

It is getting colder here and there are warnings of a bad storm tonight and tomorrow morning, with very strong winds expected. We will have to make sure we stay snug indoors. There is a lot to do, and there are lots of great napping places. We are very thankful that #1 put our Christmas tree up yesterday. This involved some bad language, and her excuse is that wrangling a 7 foot tree is not a job to be tackled by a person on their own! But she got it done!

We have a couple of new ornaments this year. This one is for Vidock:

And this is an Aby ornament:

Our stockings are in place...

And Genji said he wanted an official portrait in front of the tree, since this is his first Christmas:

Needless to say, I wasn't going to leave you without a photo of me! Here I am, hoping that some of the ham in that sandwich might accidentally find its way to me...

It did and I was most thankful!

Last but not least, we would like to thank our friend ZEROICHI for giving us this Liebster (nice) Blog award!

We are supposed to pass it on to 5 other blogs, and would like to honour some of our more recent friends:

Truffle and Brulée at Sweet Purrfections
Bert and his cohorts at Four Legged Views
Oliver, Ruby and Rose at The Oliver and Ruby Chronicles
OuiOui & Family at Twinkletoe Tails

and one long-time favourite:
Titus, EG and Tazo over at The Furry Kids


  1. Bad language #1? Wash your mouth out at once!

  2. What a nice tree. We don't have one but we are trying to persuade san to get us at least one Christmas ornament.

    the amigos

    PS: San helped us to comment and she laughed and laughed cos the word verification is - santr.
    SO that means she would have to get one fur us. :)

  3. You tree is very pretty and we think #1 was amazing to get that tree inside and decorated. We love the "bottom" wreath on Vidock's ornament and it goes without saying the Aby ornament is a most important addition. We hope all your stockings will be full to the brim with goodies after Santa has been to call.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. the yucky weather makes mom want to snuggle back in bed with us - but something about work and green papers makes her get up. hope you got to help decorate!! Love the new ornaments.

  5. WE jsut love your tree. It is so pretty and we especially like the statue in front of it. (Oh, that is not a statue)

    We are honored to be one of your recipients of the Liebster Blog award.

    We like being called Nice. I guess though, you dont mean Allred, do you?

    But I guess it is time I tried to get on his good side so I am going to tell him that it is for him too.

    Thanks again

  6. Great shots! Me had a special ornament, but me chewed ot to bits a few years ago and Mommy and Daddy has not replaced it. Yous has a pretty pawsome tree and me is so happy that yous gived to award to Bert!

  7. Christmas tree! Hmmmm- we are surprised it's still upright!

  8. We hope that storm isn't too bad and you are all safe. Take care, please.

    Can you send #1 here to put up our tree. We are amazed she did that all by herself. It is just beautiful. And we love all those special ornaments.

  9. Lovely Christmas tree! Just beautiful. We miss our tree. We've only got a very small one this year 'cause our Gran is not well.
    We love your stockings! Do you think Santa will know which one is Tommy's? We think that Genji should have a portrait with the tree and ornaments as background as you all should. We've always wanted to do this but there are lots of us and mum is the most horrible photographer ever.
    Hope your mum has lots and lots of tasty noms on hand so you can spend your days feasting and forget about the storm. Our love to you.

  10. gorgeous... love the final shot.. but all lovely! Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx
