The weather is warming up and the snow has melted but it left its mark behind along with a collection of pictures. Because we lived most of our life in the southern states, I have rarely seen snow before or on Christmas. I think the movie and song "White Christmas" has always influenced my idea of the perfect Christmas. But, that is silly. The best Christmas is being with family and friends while sharing memories of our past.

When I decorate our 2-foot tree, I spend a lot of time remembering past Christmas times with friends, family, and our travels. Our tree ornaments have come from all over the world. Some I made. Some were made by friends. Others are handmade that I bought for their uniqueness. Needless to say, I can't see the tree because of all the memories!

The brass ring was made by a neighbor. We were living in base housing in Florida and Sandy lived across the street from us. Neither one of us could afford babysitters, so we would trade off time watching the other one's kids while she went jogging or I went to aerobics.
I have many more, but I probably should move on to what I found online.
I had to share this Cheezeburger page with you. There are some cute and funny photos of all kinds of pets getting into the Christmas spirit.

Hmmm, I guess I need to work on getting our cats in the mood for Christmas. Maybe I should hang catnip from the ceiling. Wouldn't than drive them crazy! I know I don't need to encourage them into climbing the walls. They do that alllll by themselves.
Well, I guess I better go wake up the sleepy heads and see if they want to go outside before I start working on a project.
