The Spirit of Christmas



I never tire of the magic of twinkling lights on a tree. I remember buying this tree when our son's daughter was just 3 years old, which was ten years ago. I have since given this tree to my daughter since it fits in her house much better and we got a smaller one. I made her the tree skirt while my friend had given me the tree topper.



We spent Christmas with our daughter, Kristi and her husband, Dustin, along with the two grand kitties,



Molly




and Murray.




Our tree is always decorated with mostly cat ornaments and kitty stockings. I try to find a new ornament each year. This year, I got one from my friend Norma to hang on the tree:) I love this wooden cat in the boot. Reminds me of the siamese we use to have.



Some cat ornaments are stuffed...




And so are the kitty toys! Biscuit is enjoying her first Christmas! She got all sorts of jungle toy animals and is truely spoiled!
Just too cute as they appear to have worn her out.




This is one of my favorite ornaments since I gave it to my husband when we had Zeker cat. He has since passed over to rainbow bridge. Miss that guy as he was always making us laugh, so perhaps appropriate to have this very amuzing kitty ornament.



We also had a Christmas surprise! On our way to our daughter's house on Christmas Day, we happen to see a rainbow over their house. They recently had to have their 18 year old beloved calico, Chessie, put to rest, so I'd like to say that we saw her spirit go over rainbow bridge too.

May all of you have been moved by the spirit of Christmas.

oh UU i love your old tree and the new one too. the ornaments are so beautiful. i thought of you in San Juan by the fort where they have a walk path by the ocean side lined with real kitties - our guide said there are over 300. the gov't makes sure they have fresh water and food.
