...you know she's not scared of anything!"
Yes, we were out Christmas tree hunting. Yes, we came home with one and yes it is all lit up and decorated.
No, I haven't taken pictures of it yet and yes, the cat is delighted to have his winter hangout spot back (under the tree). Until tomorrow when he figures out that the tree is in the front room this year and all toddler containment gates are gone. And, no, I do not feel bad about that.
And yes, I got a little sentimental and teary eyed pulling out all of the ornaments--particularly the one I won in a raffle at the squadron's Christmas party 14 years ago...that just happened to be mine and Sean's first date. Sorta. And, yes, though we brought home a good and sturdy Scotch Pine that fragile Lladro bell will remain in the box again this year.
Some things just aren't the risk.
