Whew, Mom seems to have a contest to see how fast she can put the Christmas decorations up after Thanksgiving every year. Because of the "extra" weekend this year I was figuring it was going to be MUCH quieter and calmer around here this weekend. After all, she STILL has the first weekend in December, right?
Well, Thanksgiving day she got organized. She did put our photos on our pages, but she claimed that was cuz she had a good signal on the Wi-Fi that she boosts over from work...it's not always very good, BOL!
Friday she got a call from our friend Skye. Seems she wanted to come down and spend the night AND work for Mom on Saturday. Mom was thrilled cuz the boarding kennel was FULL, well, overfull actually.
So, while Skye cooked dinner for her and Mom on Friday night, Mom found all the Christmas decorations and got the room ready for the tree. This year it is in OUR bedroom cuz Quincy is a bit young to trust around a Christmas tree AND Mom has a little pen for Jethro to walk around in when he gets a bit older and it is right where the tree used to be. Besides, there is already an ex pen around the kitty box in that corner of the room so putting the tree behind that ex pen seemed like a good idea.
Soo, We helped and Mom and Skye got the tree up AND partially decorated. At least the lights work!!! After work Saturday Momsie put up the outside lights and tree. Then, she got the stuff for the wreaths.
Sunday Julia was here to help in the kennel so after work she and Mom and ALL US DOGS headed down to gather the boughs for the wreaths. Mom and Julia made EIGHT wreaths and put them up.
Next, WE went to the store and bought some lights for some of the wreaths AND Julia and Ali went to her house.
Mom cleaned the Chickie house and did laundry and got the stockings ready to hang. We EACH have a stocking with our name on it! Every year Mom replaces one or two of the generic ones with nicer ones that are more personal for us. I already have MY personal one, BOL!
Soo, we are MOSTLY decorated and should be done by next weekend! Merry Christmas!!

Sounds like y'all were busy!
I put the Christmas Tree up on Christmas Eve.. and it comes down on 12th Night !! Thats 6th Jan.
I guess its what you grow up with... we never saw anything decorated till Christmas Morn as kids !
Yup, Mom says they did that, too, when she was a kid. Her Mom said otherwise the seven kids drove them crazy asking how much longer until presents, BOL.
