*I’m really disappointed that wordpress doesn’t have the Falling Snow feature as an option for blogs this December. There have been other changes to their formats too, as well as new programs to upload pictures. I’m not particularly tech-savvy, and therefore, not amused. C’est livee.
I decided to break one of the Cardinal Rules of house showing in the real estate world. Rather than removing all personal items from our home, such as pictures, etc., I added Christmas decorations to our house. My girls will enjoy scaled back festivities this year, but they will not do without them altogether.
If we add any more animals to our menagarie we’ll have to get a longer stocking holder.
The girls all three worked together to decorate the tree and this year A3 topped it. She chose a star, rather than an angel. They did a beautiful job. Too bad my picture taking skills can’t capture how sparkly and bright it is.
Thor danced around the entire time we were decorating. He even convinced Steven to play a game of “Bop Tag” around the tree. Bop Tag is where Steven sits still and Thor runs up to him from different angles, while trying to get as close as he can to the kitty before Steven Bops him on the nose. Eventually Thor ran out of steam and collapsed for the evening.
We have two more showings today. I’ve lost count of how many we’ve had, but we’re getting tired of looking for new, inexpensive ways to entertain ourselves away from home while strangers meander through our closets.
Christmas knitting is off to a slow start this year. I finished a pair of fingerless mitts from some handspun yarn, but they don’t have a prospective home yet. They’re sized for a medium-sized man’s hand. I started a pair of extra-long fingerless gloves for A2 in a custom-dyed colorway from Wandering Cat Studio. It’s called, “Cheshire Cat”, which is A2’s favorite character from Alice in Wonderland.
*The snow is back! Hooray!
