'Tis the Season for Trees and Stuffies

'Tis the Season to be Jolly . . . 

Well, it's that time again.  My dad went digging in the shed and brought out five plastic tubs full of shiny red stuff that my mom started hanging up all over the house.  Christmas carols are playing on the radio, and classics like Rudolf the Rednose Reindeer, the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Year Without a Santa Claus, and Frosty the Snowman flash across the television.  My mom is baking cookies, making the house smell like cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.

Our neighbors got together for a "party" on Sunday afternoon to decorate the street.  They had a great idea to string colored lights between the houses this year.
I think it turned out great.  Very festive!
After the decorating party, my mom and dad put up a tree in the house and hung stockings by the fireplace.
I know.  A tree!  In the house!
They won't let me bring sticks into the house, yet they bring in an entire tree?  Hypocrites, I tell you.  Although, I will admit -- the twinkling lights, shiny balls, and special ornaments make the tree very pretty.

My mom also put some holiday stuffies up on a shelf that for some reason are "off-limits" to me.  I don't understand how a stuffie could sit on a shelf and not be loved. 
Dear Mr. Reindeer, sir, wouldn't you like to hop down off that shelf and play?
And Mr. and Mrs. Bear, stop that mushy stuff and come cuddle with me instead.


  1. It's very confusing, isn't it? I mean, they bring in a whole tree, and then tempt you with stuffies. It's very odd.

    PS, you look so cute in your coat!

  2. I love that you get together with your whole street and decorate it with lights! Don't worry- those stuffies will be coming down soon enough :)
