Merry Christmas 2020!

This year, for Christmas, we did something a little different. I ordered personalized ornaments for all our dogs, past and present, and for our budgie, Ami, and hung them all on the small tree in the living room. I guess it's more of a memory tree than a traditional Christmas tree, but I love it! It mesmerizes me and I wanted to share it with you. See anyone you recognize?

One last shot of the back, and one of Grace's ornament, placed proudly at the top of the tree (she is our angel, after all, bless her heart):

Oh, you're right! Dusty didn't get very good billing, did she? She's got two up there--in the last tree shot, very low left. She's also got a more prominent spot under puppy Lili in the first shot of the tree, but all I caught with the camera was her ears. I'll have to add a picture of her ornament when I get it edited!

Merry Christmas, Reg and Ev! And all the best in 2021.

Here's Dusty's 'First Christmas' ornament...which I did retroactively, since 2019 was her first Christmas with us.

There...now I feel better about shirking her in the pictures of the tree!

Both the cats are pretty photogenic, though they're a little camera shy. I usually have to catch them when they're in the midst of, or contemplating, mischief. It's often a choice between, "Do you want this picture?" and "How much damage are you willing to put up with?"

Thanks, Marko. I have to admit, I'm spending more time than is probably healthy for me, standing in front of the tree, remembering.... It calls to me as I'm walking by and distracts me from the speedy execution of my daily rounds. (But I just really like it! It's my Christmas present to me this year. )
