i am sooo excited for christmas, i can hardly stand it! we put up our little charlie brown tree last night (while i finished off most of the thanksgiving leftovers... how ironic) and i have to say i think it's quite adorable. plus, our front room has these really cool -i call them "steak & shake ice cube windows"- so the christmas lights look really neat from outside... other than lights, so far i've just tacked some candy canes up there for fun. with 2 crazy cats, i'm not willing to risk precious family ornaments!!
