12/1/14 Decorating for Christmas

Today’s blog features lots of pictures that Jamie took with his go-pro camera.

Mom fancies herself as “part Elf”, especially at this time of the year. And since I don’t know any other humans who wander around, wailing, “I can’t find my candy-cane duct tape!” I suppose I have to believe her.

Once my humans obtained their Christmas tree, they couldn’t leave it at that. Oh, no. Mom had to call in the Associate Elves (Erik, Jamie, Jenny) to come help decorate and put up lights.

I should point out that Mom just thought she’d get the tree done. But the Associates had other ideas.

Here is Jamie, putting the finishing touches on the top of the closet:jamiehat

and the finished project; a Winter Wonderland!

Here, Erik and Jamie attempt to move my chair so they could plug in Mom’s “Enchanted Forest”. Mom says this picture is blurry (she took it) but it’s one of her faves since I am in the middle:

As you can see, I was not moving from my spot. Nonetheless, they got the job done. The Enchanted Forest dwells in front of the fireplace.

Here’s a random decorating shot (Notice Mom is mostly standing around):

Erik approaches the big tree to survey the light situation: “Hmmm, where do I start?”

Anyone ever see “The Muppet Christmas Carol” where Rizzo the Rat says, “Thank you for making me a part of this” – ? Kind of my sentiments here:

The tree, in all its blazing glory:

You can see Santa’s airplane through the front window. He has a helicopter, too, but it’s hidden from view. Dad and Jamie put the decorations up outside; Mom doesn’t think she can do too much more out there this year.

But we cannot forget the first decoration Mom put up all by herself:

nativity

Whew! All this decorating and Elf business and Christmas music and candles has me tired out!

That’s it. I’ve had enough. I’m claiming my chair and resting. 24 more days and counting? I don’t think I can handle it…better get some snoozing in to rest up. I have a feeling this month is going to go by very fast! A Big Thank You, Woof and Tail Wag to Erik, Jamie, Jenny, and Dad!

Woof! Love, Maggie

    It’s a good thing we did our decorating yesterday!! The wind here has been 25-28 mph today! We would have been decorating down the block if the lights took off….. 😆
