I started our Christmas decorating on Saturday morning. All set to go (not really wanting to do it, but it had to be done), bring in the tubs (ugh why so many decorations!) and Jason brought up the tree box (please lite up, please lite up.)
I stepped outside to grab a couple wreaths that I had placed on a bench and noticed they were both missing a few berries, but only on the lower section of each wreath. About, hmmmm, dog level. Let’s just say, I think Charlie will have festive poop.
I walked back in the house and noticed Charlie had something in her mouth. I fished out the item and found out it was Henry’s hat!! OH DEAR! What about Henry!!
Phew, she had just pulled off his hat and no damage had occured to Henry. I very carefully and strategically placed his hat back on his head so not to touch him. If I touched him, we all know he would lose his flying powers! His hat now has a little tear in the front, under the old band-aid, but above the chocolate stained mouth.
I then walked into the living room and noticed no Jason. I looked at the tree and knew right away why he had vacated the area. We have a pre-lit tree. As you can see, there are only 2 1/2 sections lit and no top on the tree. A section had not lit up, so Jason watched a you tube video on how to fix a pre-lit tree bulbs. He did as the video instructed and blew out a whole section. It went down hill from there.
Thank goodness Jack had a basketball game so I offered to take him to his early practice before the game, quickly piled the decorations on the table and left the house. Decorating can and would wait for another day.
