December is Laura's flat out favorite month.
Early on, her birthday. Later on, Christmas.
It's the present thing, I believe.
It started last weekend when Laura wondered what we should do for stockings this year. I volunteered to ask Aunt Janice for ours, and she asked if I would be offended if we just looked for our own.
"What about any of the ornaments?" She hoped never to see those again, either.
So, we went to look at what is up for sale this year.
Needless to say...
We picked out a little tree, some garland, and the beginning of the ornaments.
We do have thirty odd days to accumulate ornaments we like. (I liked the owl!)
Mr. You Know Who hasn't knocked it over yet, an annual occurrence at the old house.
He does nap on the tree skirt every day,
after his obligatory pounce to shake out mice or things.
One of the first things Laura hopes to find is the star.
In the meantime, a Santa hat.
