Bad Cats and Christmas Trees

I didn't expect the Christmas trees to be perfect this year. I know better. 4 kids, 2 cats and a rambunctious dog can do serious harm to a Christmas tree.

I must admit, I didn't expect it to be this bad.

The tree in the girls room is always missing it's ornaments. The girls take them off and do something with them - what that is, I don't know.

The tree in the family room is missing most of the bottom ornaments. The cats run around and chase each other under the tree. They knock the ornaments off, and then bat them around the basement. I've even caught Beano tossing glass ornaments in the air.

BUT - the worst is the pink tree in the living room. I have come home to find it laying on it's side more times than I care to admit. Half of the branches have come out and are scattered about the room. I have no idea where most of the ornaments are (they are certainly not on the tree). AND, that bad Beano has managed to tangle the lights in such a way that we may never get them untangled.

The joys of having a large family and a crazy household.

I wouldn't trade it for the world.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE these photos. And yes, cats and Christmas trees make a fun combination. It never stops me though. :) That last picture could win a photo contest.

Can't wait to see you!
