Our tree this year is a little sad. I don't think it will make it all the way til New Years. Luckily we have enough ornaments that mostly hide the bald spots. The kitten thinks it's all about her and has been attacking it, the ornaments, the ribbons and the gift wrap all week. It's a thin christmas this year, which is apropos for the times.
And finally, my mother in law mailed us a box of driftwood for christmas. An entire box.
