thankful thursday blog hop brian 12032020

Howdy partners, thanks for coming to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, the first one in December. I am always thankful to each of you for joining us! Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Yes, I’m still soaking up the winter sunshine and yes, it feels good. Today though I’m thankful that it’s just about time to lay under the Christmas Tree. I really do like it there and I’ll probably have some photos to share later on. But, the Christmas Tree is up and the Mom has just finished with the decorations.

I know I’ve said this before but it’s worth repeating. Laying way back under the Christmas Tree is the purrfect spot for avoiding the Medicine Man. Does it work? No, not always, but I make the Dad, I mean the Medicine Man, work for it. He does usually win though.

Tomorrow Simon will show you the Christmas Tree with the lights on. Okay, so what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

we agree that is the best place… even when the medicine man often wins that hide&seek game ;O)

We’ll have to visit your tree every day … the ZH says I might only get a “charlie brown tree” cause I’d likely destroy any other kind! What’s a “charlie brown tree? … is that from your CB?”

Say Brian, the mom did an awesome job decorating that tree! My mom and dad, who haven’t had a tree in years, went out and bought a little 4 foot tall pine tree/bush/shrub kind of thing so they can use it as a Christmas tree and then keep it as a house plant year round. Kinda like recycling, I guess. Dad said to tell your mom that her tree is just the way he liked to decorate his family’s trees throughout his youth. Oh, and I’m thankful that I have all my blogging friends like all y’all!

You tree is beautiful! We love to get under the tree too, but I ball up that skirt thing and that makes Mom a bit cranky. Oh well!

Brian, mom has a few pictures of me under the tree too. I know you know your Dad has to “visit” you under there while you are enjoying the tree. You are always feeling good and soaking up the sunpuddles because he DOES “visit”. XXX to you, sweet boy. Love you.

Kitties and Christmas trees just go together. Tell your mom she did a fabulous job decorating that tree. It’s beautiful.

I had to laugh and your attempt to make the medicine man work for it. Good job.

I hope your dad had a great birthday yesterday.

Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. Scritches to your siblings and my best to your peeps. ♥

Brian I’m an under the tree napper too……such a nice quiet spot isn’t it. I’m sure it’s no fun when Dad finds you for medicine time but after all – you NEED the meds so might as well cooperate and get it over with right? Your tree looks AMAZING!

Hugs, Teddy

Your tree is beautiful as always, Brian. It is so colorful, and we love the big white pointsettia. We bet it is very comfy to lie on that quilted skirt too. We are too big and can’t get under the tree very well. But we still like to nap near it.

Your tree is so pretty! The mom put our little tree up yesterday but not the big one yet. She’s debating whether she wants to go through all the trouble. We of course think she should.

SO pretty! My childhood cat Patch always used to nap under the tree but I’ve never had another cat do it since!

Christmas trees first became popular when it was too cold for cats to lie under the tree so they brought the tree in the house.

I’ll have to try your strategy for avoiding the medicine man. Tee hee hee. Ooh pretty tree. Mom hasn’t put our up yet, but she says it will be real one this year.
