It's time to decorate for Christmas

Which is one of my favorite times of the year.. this year I had decided not to put up a tree in the living room because I knew the little monster kitties that were suppose to be temporary visitors in our home but have become a wonderful part of our family would try to climb it .. but everyone kept saying NO Tree .. you always have a beautiful tree you have to have your tree ... so yesterday I put it up... and

first there was a little kitty meeting around the tree. Our older cat in the middle loves to sleep under the tree so he was very excited to see it going up.

first in is little Mr Tig the I ain't scared of nothing kitten

come on now ya'll know my tail is pretty enough to be an ornament..

oh yeah this is great ya'll come on in ...

and so little sister boots follows and finds herself the perfect spot to watch the world go by out the front windows..

and the next thing I knew they were being so cute and still and sweet ahhhhhhh which lasted all of about 3 seconds then they started fighting, the tree started rocking and I started praying.... I just knew any moment it was coming down . It didn't but I'm betting it won't make it through the entire season .. lol. We finished putting the lights on it and as long as the lights are lit one of them is in the tree, unplug and they come out Needless to say I won't be decorating in my normal fashion this year .. Have you started decorating yet ? Do you need help ? I will send you my furry little helpers as long as you promise to send them back cause they have stolen our hearts.. Hope ya'll all have a wonderful day.

hugs from Savannah ya'll, Cherry

it's Flaunt your Flowers Friday at Miss Lois' house

Happy Friday ya'll hope everyone is having a great morning. It's chilly here this morning after having summer temps for the last 2 weeks I am loving it ..

I have been helping Miss Lois and am in awe of how beautiful her flowerbeds still look

even after a quick frost everything is still blooming and showing off

she has started taking things out so she can get her pansies and things planted

the butterflies and and bees are loving her yard also

anyone know what this is ? The best we can figure the seeds came from Parks when we ordered in the spring but since Miss Lois just plants we have no package and I can't find it on their web site. It was huge the plants are at least 3' to 4' tall the flower is 12" to 15" long we saved the seeds and hope that we have lots of these next summer.

Ok so I have flaunted now it's your turn... 
Come on and join us at Tootsie Time .
Have a wonderful weekend everyone
