Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Tis the Season to Be Thankful, Fa La La La La

Dont forget to share Einstein please
Thankful thursday blog hop brian 11302017 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop everyone. Once again we get the opportunity to share with each other those things for which we are thankful. For us, and I’m sure for you too, the list is never ending. It’s a great mental exercise though to stop and focus on one or two things each week, it keeps our minds focused on the good.

Today, for me, two things come to mind. First I’m thankful that the disruptive humans who deliver appliances haven’t been back. I know the Mom and the Dad are feeling less stressed now that the newest refrigerator is working. This time they seem to be restocking it slowly instead of all at once and I can totally understand it.

The second thing I’m thankful for you can see in my photo. I’m thankful for my Christmas Tree. For those of you who are new to our blog, I was born on a Christmas Tree Farm and I was adopted three days before Christmas. So, the Christmas holiday has a special place in my heart. For me, nothing is better than laying under the Christmas Tree and enjoying the glow of the lights and shiny ornaments.

Oh, with the newbies, I’d be remiss if I didn’t say I’m thankful that the Christmas Tree is still standing. Actually, as it turns out, Brother Simon has been pretty good with the tree. If he starts being bad the Amazon Alexa lady plays ”Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer” and he takes off like a shot. He doesn’t care for that tune much. It turns out that Sister Seal fancies herself to be an ornament thief. She likes to take them off when nobody is watching and then relocates them to another part of the house.

Okay, I’m going to stretch out and take a snooze. Tell me, what are you thankful for today? Hop on in and join our Blog Hop, tis the season! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

So the tree is still standing and the refrigerator is still working! YAY! We haven’t put our tree up yet – I think Mom and Dad are worried I’m going to like the tree TOO MUCH…..we’ll find out soon. By the way, we couldn’t get a photo to link up this morning so it just has our post title in the Hop – we are #7! Keep on snoozing!

Love, Teddy

haha hopefully the breakable ornaments are up high. Simon just doesn’t want any reindeer to run over him I guess.

We haven’t got our tree up yet, the Dad had to go out of town so maybe when he comes home. Socks and Whiskers always loved sitting under the tree and it looks like Yang is going to inherit the spot under the tree from them. We are all pretty good with the tree.

Tree up and refrigerator working are all good things!! We have a tree, but we have it outside soaking up some water, so it won’t dry out so fast.

The tree is beautiful, and we love seeing you under it, Brian! We are glad that things are now more peaceful at your house – well, other than the Alexa lady singing! 🙂

Oh my goodness, that is so funny about Simon. I can just picture that Simon running for his life when Alexa starts singing. Seal, are you gathering those ornaments to decorate your own little tree???
We also love the fact that Sascha is in the new header. You all have a great day.

You have a great Christmas adoption story. ❤️ We are hoping to get our tree up next week. I enjoy just looking at it at night. I have a chime to hang on the bottom of the tree to let me know if a certain Jasmine is thinking of climbing. ???

We are so thankful for this blog hop. It really is such a wonderful thing to take the time to ponder all for which we are grateful. Brian, around here, Eddy is so very thankful for the Christmas tree. She is a climber, and the tree is fair game to her. The human here has given up fighting that. Eddy is also is an ornament thief. For those reasons, this year the trees (we have 2, which makes Eddy so very happy) are strategically placed for safety’s sake, and ornaments are now being hung on strands of garland on the… Read more »

Brian, I’m always thankful for you and your fursibs and humans. You’re so lucky you get to lay under your tree. I don’t like the feel of tree needles under me so I don’t. Alexis is quite a character!

That’s kind of sneaky of your parents to set up that song when you get near the tree! We’re so thankful for friends like you.

Glad your tree is up. Ours is too. Although our cat hasn’t tried to steel the decorations or climb the tree. She has slept under the tree on the tree skirt. Daisy Mae stays away from the tree. She liked the Christmas tree box though. I joined your blog hop. Shared on LinkedIn.

Sounds like a good news report day with the fridge working and the tree still standing!!!

Mom is very surprised AND thankful that both Misty and Timber have not touched any of the ornaments on our tree not the stuffies on the hearth. Let’s hope this doesn’t jinx her.

The Alexa lady is guarding the tree? That’s funny and clever of the humans.
We always hang wooden and fabric ornaments on the bottom two feet of the tree. Everyone has been very good about ignoring them so far.
Kisses to Brian looking so handsome under the tree!

I don’t blame Brother Simon at all. My momma sure doesn’t like that song and she’d have told Alexa to cool it!

Cute photo of you, Brian.

I’m thankful we made it home* after all the flight problems caused by the recent snow storms in the east!

Our Gracie and Millie are thankful too.
