Oh how happy I am the holiday season is upon us and I have an excuse to drink straight from the bottle (because I’m so classy).
Packing up my rust bucket as snuggly as Santa’s sleigh, I hauled my Christmas decor back to my mini manse, excited to commence the sparkly gaudiness I like to call seasonal ornamentation.
Naturally my elves could hardly wait to lay down and take naps on my boxes of goodies as soon as I arrived home.
Teddy sniffed and pawed every piece of shiny tinsel attached to my pink tree before allowing it to leave the box.
He also tried to end up electrocuted like the cat in Griswold Family Christmas but I was able to yank the lights away in the nick of time.
Careful not to lift a paw, my feline duo found the Christmas tree box the most relaxing venue on the planet while I assembled the tree.
And as soon as the pink lights glistened, positions were assumed. Being that this is New Cat’s very first holiday season with us, Ted was slightly perturbed to find that he has to share the tree. I was simply thrilled NC decided not to climb it.
Morphing into an elf, I spent the rest of Friday evening trying to make my pad resemble the North Pole.
While I was busy channeling Santa, my Iowa twins were out and about in the newly fallen snow.
On Saturday we had one final Nashville college football tailgate at my mini manse, cheering on our mediocre at best Iowa Hawkeyes.
Mr. Bear was so upset that this was the final viewing party that he promptly took a three-hour nap on his grandma’s lap.
Keeping our family tradition alive, my dad and I decided to drink straight from our moonshine bottles in lieu of shot glasses because our Hawkeyes lost yet another game.
By the end of the weekend, the flu found its way to my little Iowa bebes, who’ll hopefully be in recovery before Auntie CBXB gets her hands on them in a few days for Thanksgiving!
Here’s hoping you and yours stay healthy for a safe and happy holiday week!
