Why Our Tree Looks Like Crap ...

Don't let Lucy's cuteness fool you. She was trying to "blend" so she can do this:

There's GOT to be a bird in here somewhere!

I took a picture right after I decorated it because I knew in my heart it would never look like this again. I was right.
Glenda, if you're reading this, yesterday, Lucy and Stephen played kickball with one of the ornaments you gave me. The 2005 ornament. Which, by the way, was my favorite one. When I realized the cat and the boy were going to do this (Lucy starts it!), I figured I better get my glass ornaments off of the tree. I missed this one. But Lucy found it. :( My dearest friend Glenda buys me a beautiful ornament every year. Maybe ... starting next year, you might want to get me an ugly plastic one. Lucy hasn't touched any of my ugly ones. ... Darn cat!

I will update again, soon. But it may be after Christmas. I have to get started in the kitchen today and won't come out till ... whenever.
I wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a blessed holiday season!

I think it took us a few years before our cat managed to "kill" every glass ornament we had. We ended up with a more rustic-looking tree but the ornaments were more sturdy.

Stupid cats...

Thankfully I only had one cat who would mess with the tree. He was my daughters cat when she was 5, he would knock down the glass ornaments on the lower branches and literally break them and try to eat them. How he survived that I'll never know. The 4 I have now don't even bother the tree, fortunate for me, because most of the ornaments are glass. Your tree still brings out the beauty and merriment of the season, Lucy is a permanent decoration in itself. (Hugs)Indigo

I love how Lucy is trying to hide herself amongst the other animals... too cute..
we had a cat growing up and one Christmas he decided to jump up in the tree and ended up knocking it over and we ended up with 1/2 a tree... his name was tarzan... go figure...LOL... Hope you have a very Merry Christmas..

Had a cat years ago who did the ornament playing thing as well as eating tinsel. Now I have two dogs who like the game also. I'm glad to hear though, that Stephen and the cat play together.
Have a Merry Christmas.
My Regards, Bill

I love the pics. This just reminds me why I don't have a tree. :-)

I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday.

Apparently your cat has good taste, going for the glass ornaments. Very cute pictures! Perhaps not so cute in person but I sure do appreciate the photo-memories.

Merry Christmas Mia. Love to you and Stephen and bless that cat of yours. ;)

Oh my! LMAO

Silly kitty.
They're so stinkin' rotten, those cats.

Hope you had a blessed Christmas, my friend.

Much love,
