Thankful Thursday: Tis the Season for Trees N’ Things



Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! Tis the season, and it’s one of my favorites.  That, of course, would be Christmas season. Having been born on a Christmas Tree Farm, I have always loved this holiday. I was a bit worried this year though.

Why was I worried?  We were without a Christmas Tree.  Last year we got a new one, but the peeps didn’t really like it, so back it went.  Well, it was like forever that there wasn’t any sign of a tree here, nowhere, nowhere at all.   Then this great big box appeared, and I was pretty sure it was a tree.  But, since nobody offered to open it I couldn’t really be sure.

Then it happened this past weekend.  Dad opened the big box and it was a tree. Actually, it looked like a tree, but I wasn’t really sure.  Something was wrapped in plastic and it was in three parts.   Then the magic started happening, it really, really was a tree, with lots of lights too.  So now all is Christmas Tree normal and the Santa Watch can begin.  I will try to see if we can get a photo of the tree to share.

I’m thankful for our Christmas Tree, it sure is pretty.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

I’m glad you got a Christmas tree, Brian. We used to put up a small tree…

but it was too much bother to keep it away from our cats. So now, we just put out the bubble light night light in the kitchen.

We love Christmas time too! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Mom and Dad just went and got a tree yesterday. None of us have ever tried to climb the tree before, but they are thinking that Caster might be a tree climber. This is his first Christmas, so we will see!

Mind if we share your tree with you? We can’t put one up because Laila is utterly terrified of them, no matter how big or small. 🙁

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a tree!

Brian, my Dad always insists on getting a “real” Christmas tree, but he has been sick with the flu for a week now, so no sign of any tree here. I sure hope he is better soon, because he won’t have to go far – just round the corner to where the Boy Scout troop is selling them.

Enjoy yours!

I need to put my tree up soon… I am so behind 🙁 We got a new one last year too – pre-lit! I think that’s what I’m thankful for today lol. I HATE hanging lights and then removing them.

Oh wait until they unwrap that thing and decorate. You and your sisfurs are going to be put into hard labor checking the ornaments suitability for use is like working in the salt mines 🙂

We bought a tiny little tree in a pot years ago and planted it after the holidays in the herb garden. It’s grown to be pretty big and we decorate with it bows. Inside we just bring in some fresh cedar and pine garland which is no big deal since our boys go outdoors. Odin, the master tree climber would most likely destroy any tree like yours 😉

We can’t wait to see your new tree. We got a new one this year too. The old one was too heavy for Mom to haul up and down from the basement. So she got one that is still tall, but not so full. We will have to post it now that she has finally finished it, including the top:)

Mom bought a new tree last year right after Christmas. Dad hauled the box up yesterday and she set it up. It is another nine-footer, but not nearly as nice as our old one was when it was new. She’s not in love with it, but as soon as it gets covered in ornaments, it will still bring that Christmas magic to the house. Can’t wait to see your tree!
