We watched Elf twice in a row last night, put up the tree, and ate Christmas sugar cookie dough.  The perfect night spent getting ready for the Holidays?  I think so too.

I love my kitty… can you tell?  I can only imagine how I will be when we have a child …the picture craziness has to stop.  I just fear I’m going to miss a special moment.  Plus, I definitely want to document Winston as the small little nugget that he is today.  

Our tree is artificial… a “hand-me-down” from Brandon’s parents.  It’s the perfect size for a smaller space.  

When I was home visiting my parents this past weekend, I went with them to get their live tree.  While there, Mom and I picked up a TON of scrap branches.  I placed some of those branches throughout our fake tree to make it look more full and to give it that Christmas tree smell.  You can see the mix of fake and real branches in the photo above.  

Merry, Merry.

    Great pics! Kittens get so big so fast, so I'd be taking lots of pictures too!

    That's a great idea to mix artificial w/real branches–your tree looks great! Your kitty looks SO much like mine, they're like long lost brother-sister twins!

    Aww I love that last picture of Winston staring at the Christmas lights. 🙂 What a cutie.

    I bet your kitten just loves the lights. My old cat used to climb up the Christmas tree. Once she knocked it over. I thought it was hysterical but my parents weren't thrilled… haha

    You sound like me with our puppy- I can't stop taking pictures of her!! I'm going to run out of room on my camera soon 🙂 Your tree looks great- it doesn't look fake at all!

    Your kitten is adorable. I thought my picture craziness would stop with my puppy. I am guilty of putting way too many pictures up of him!
