I know I have another plastic tub full of decorations, but didn't dig them out from under the basement staircase. But the tree has plenty on it. There are the ones from the grandkids Blake and Amanda that they have made during the years and from friends. There are some very old (now antique) ornaments that were on our family tree when I was growing up. They still have the old white string on to hang them up with. I just don't want to cut that string off. These are just plastic. There are a few glass ones, but they must be in the other tub, along with alot of the ornaments our kids made. Next year I'll have to rotate.
Hooch was wonderful as Santa Dog, sat so perfectly on command. I want to have Odda in a picture by the tree also, but think that job of getting her and Hooch to sit quietly may be more than Odda can handle. But think I'll try it with help either from Connie or Leah one of these days. First I'll take Odda on a long walk -wear her out a little. That will help.
Then when I told Santa Dog "OK, done", he took care of removing his santa hat and beard!
Now that the tree is up I can get some more sewing done and baking! Yesterday daughter Leah and I spent a day together shopping in a neighboring town. She crossed alot of things off her list. My list is in my head! dah! Need to wrap things to make sure all is well on the gift list! We had a fun day together and had a wonderful salad lunch at Perkins. Just our lunch was a day brightner, as it was so good!
