We're Almost There!

My goodness, how fast the days have gone by!

There's only about a week left as we slide right into Christmas. Methinks we still might have some leftover turkey..no, just kidding..


We even started decorating early, putting sparkly and woodsy things around like a pine cone basket under the tree




Carousel horsies that just won't hang on. I can't understand why..hehe



Other ornaments, festive and feline








including a big, old nip sack! The kind Santa Cat would carry on his back, hehe! Furriends, if we got our paws on that, we would be pawtyin' well into the New Year!

And there's me..

ME??





Mom Julie said something about stringing a little garland on my whiskers..she's so silly.









My favorite Christmas decoration?

It's these two together...









You might recognize the infant Jesus from our cat nativity set. We never put him away last year, just kept him sleeping right on the shelf, sweet as can be. The Father Christmas with him is one of our favorite versions of the more traditional St. Nicholas.

We can't wait to see some of your holiday decorations!

Awwwww we love your Christmas decor - especially the baby kitty Jesus, how adorable! It's so hard to find a nativity scene set these days and we really like them - but we shall find one set, we're determined!!

The nip sack ball is a fab idea!!

Take care

We especially love your Father Christmas, he's wonderful. We're surprised they're both intact, though...Our human says there's a reason she no longer has anything breakable on display, and it's spelled N-i-c-k-i. :-)

Have a wonderful and blessed holiday!

Christmas seems to have arrived in a rush this year - so Mum says!! We think it has come very slowly.
We love your Christmas tree ornaments and baubles.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

That is a lovely ST Nick with the baby Jesus Cat. And I do think you'd look pretty with some garland or tinsel on your whiskers!

A cat nativity set? How sweet is that? Very nice, Tom!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Love your decorations! And I think a nice little garland would look lovely on your whiskers.. MOL!

Fisher and Staff said...

I'm with William - a cat nativity set? How adorable. I have moved so much and downsized more, and have to admit I really don't decorate much at all. It's not bah humbug, really. I do clean the house, though!

Mary said...

I love all your wonderful Christmas decorations, Tom! What fun. And no, i can't imagine in a million years what happens to those carousel horsies. ;) Hmm...

And i adore your traditional Saint Nick. All hearts and love. Merry (quickly) coming Christmas to you and your family!

Shaggy and Scout said...

Is Mitty gonna climb the tree??!!

Bellen said...

I hope to put some pictures of Christmas decorations up on the blog this week, but they are spare around my house. every year I promise myself to decorate more, and every year, I run out of time. How does that happen? laziness or something wrong with the time continuum? I'll go with the latter...

Katz Tales said...

We don't celebrate but we enjoy looking at you all having fun. Meow!

Crikey said...

If your Mom tries to string the garland on your whiskers, just put the bitey on her!

SuziQCat said...

Thank you for stopping by our blog to leave kind words about Devon's passing.
