revenge of the beasts

Here we have living proof that Chuck is a bad dog and gets on the couch when I am not paying attention.



Eldest is experimenting with tree decorations...so far she has tried out a mystery creature, sorry no photo, it fell in seconds...too heavy.

Then she tried out the skunk....



T'was the stink before Christmas and all through the house, the children were sleeping with closed pegs on their noses.

Did you notice the Halloween decorations in the background??? So sad.

Now we have a squirrel...which has a certain logic to it anyway....




What do you think?

Trish...kinda fun I think...the skunk is very quirky.


mar....Nutty is us!

Mmichele, we have had to make it up for so many years with different Christmases in different places that the tradition is pretty much to make it up. Let's see. 2003, mangrove branches in a naglene. 2004 a tiny tree 6 inches high..again on the boat. Home made decorations,
2005 artificial tree, four feet high homemade and dollar store decorations. 2006, Poland, tree in a pot with decorations at my sisters house, and an artifical tree in Spain, with a very few homemade decorations. 2007, Seville, tree in a pot with pathetically few decorations - again homemade and great fun.
2008, artificial tree, se 2006 with more homemade decorations and so far a few donated and probably some dollar store decorations. If we ever got all the decorations we have from the boat and the house and here, we'd have quite the display.....
