Our first tree in four years; after the cats ravaged one the first year we had them, we thought we might not be able to have another one, until mom hit on the idea of having it in the porch, where they can’t get at it. It might make for a cold gift-unwrapping come Tuesday, though. We still had the old ornaments up in the attic, but we didn’t have lights, and my sister insisted on going to target and getting some stupid-looking big ones which thankfully are not too prominent in this photo.
Now just waiting for the first snowfall of the year. First time it’s taken this long since 2001.
