Last night we had a bunch of friends come over and help us decorate our Christmas tree. We started with appies covering every surface of the house and moved on to moose chili, wine and birthday cake later in the evening. Christmas music filled the house and alternated with holiday movies (The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Nightmare Before Christmas, and Garfield’s Christmas – one of our friend’s absolute favourites). It was our puppy Shiloh’s initiation to her first Christmas and I’m happy to report she hasn’t yet knocked over the tree or chewed on it (neither did her canine buddies who came over to visit) although she did look a bit overwhelmed when our friend Meghan started to decorate her. The house now feels cozy and Christmas-sy….bring on the craziness of the holidays.
