Tasty Tidbits

We put up our Christmas tree on Tuesday! Dad brought it down from the cabin for us. It's our biggest tree yet, so the ornaments seem a little few & far between. We made sure to put lights on it & we've enjoyed turning off the overhead lights to see the tree twinkle. Tink wasn't into the tree last year, but this year she's super curious. So much so that she climbed her way up to the beams...tsk tsk.  Once she got down, we moved the bookcase she used to get to the armoire to climb up.

Apparently that wasn't enough to stop her, though! On Wed. night she did a super leap from the windowsill to the armoire to the beam. I didn't know she could jump so far! And she tried a beam closer to the tree. Here I caught her in the act of peering down at the tree, ready to pounce. We moved the armoire this time, so we'll see what she tries next!

My co-workers sent me this beautiful plant basket in sympathy for Poppop's passing. I was very touched to work with such caring people!
