Some more decorating....

Right before Thanksgiving and Kathleen's birthday, we started decorating the tree in our formal living room. It's my Victorian themed room. :-)







The cats enjoyed the tree also! :-)


We still have some more decorating to do and lots of presents to wrap! Also some fun activities with the girls, yummy recipes and cookies to make! :-) Each day I will add a new quote to enjoy. I am also starting my college Math course this week, wish me lots of luck....I do not like math :-( LOL.

Have a wonderful day!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway until December 6th! :-)

Many Blessings,
Jill

I love all the pictures--everyone looks like they are really enjoying themselves--cats included!! We are having to watch the lower branches on our tree--Rascal likes nosing the ornaments hanging down. He loves having the tree up--he gets in the corner behind it so he can get away from everyone--his brother mostly--Baxter seems to be afraid of the tree.
Good luck with your math course--I think that is the main thing that makes me afraid to go back to school.
I love all the quotes you put in your posts.
Hope y'all have a lovely rest of the week. Take care.

Pretty pictures and special memories!! I had a cat once that love the Christmas tree also ~ from the inside. Love to climb it - of course he knocked it over....not so fun...

Good luck with the math. I'm not a fan either.

Jill, Those are the cutest pictures! I love Victorian too. Your garlands look much nicer than the ones my boys strung on our tree. But they are teenage boys..with not very much decorating savvy. I told myself, "It's the thought that counts!". It was great to come over to a tree already put together. I smile every time I walk by and see the almost perfectly straight strings of silver garland. Ha!

Your girls look like little angels..and your hubby is too funny!

Hope you enjoy your holidays very much.

OH Jill, Your tree is beautiful! And, I love the little foot kick back on the step stool. She is so adorable!

I must ask did you steal my kitty? (last picture) lol! I have a maincoon cat that looks just like yours! And, if I catch him inside the top of my tree again, I will take a picture! ;) Most often though I find him in the exact location as your cat though.
