It is beginning to look a lot....

LIKE CHRISTMAS 
at our house...  Mom and Dad fought with the tree put up the tree this past
weekend. 
SCORE: Tree 0 Mom and Dad WON!!!
My favorite part of the tree is the tree skirt.  Dad's Mom made it a long time ago.  It is very soft and as you can see I love sitting under my tree basking in all 600 lights.
Mom and Dad's favorite things are the ornaments.  They have been collecting
ornaments from Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn for several years.
This year 50% of the ornaments on the tree are from Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn.
We'd like to show you some of them.  You may biggfy any of the pictures by clicking on them.




Mom loves her Angel Tree Topper
BUTT she says I, M A D I, am her favorite ANGEL under the tree.
Thanks for visiting us today,
Madi and Mom

  5. Hi Madi & Mom,

    We know how much of a fight those trees can put up so congratulations on winning the battle. The tree is beautiful as are all the ornaments. Madi you do look like a sweet angel lying on the tree skirt.

    We know you are a very good girl Madi but we have to ask if you ever play with the ornaments on the lower branches. We cannot hang nice ones that low or Miss Cindi will think they are her toys. We have found small ornaments in other rooms after they had been tossed into the air and chased all over. A couple of years ago we found some soft cat toys shaped like Christmas ornaments, those now go on the lower branches.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    J and Cindi Lou

    Love ya, Madi, sweetie.

  14. Oh Madi, your tree looks just lovely with some of the prettiest ornaments.
    You just make the whole scene look perfect sitting on the pretty red tree skirt - we can see you are the angel at the bottom.

  16. What a wonderful place for your naps Madi. That is such a pretty tree. I kind of remember one of those in our house in Montana last year. I don't know if it will appear here in our new house by the sea. I will keep watching and post if one finally does appear.
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya

  20. Lovely tree Madi - we will go out to get ours this week. Do you like to climb into it - Sweetpea used to when she was a ktten1

  21. Awwwww you are the prettiest angel!!

  22. Gee Madsters!! Even though you Mom and Dad have a really neat collection of ornaments, I STILL think that you are the prettiest thing anywhere on or near that tree!!! Have you ever thought about climbing into the tree and being an ornament? haha!! I think your M&D would really (not) love that!! It could be fun though just to see what kind of reaction you get!! But better not dare break one of those special ornaments or you might just be banned from coming anywhere near the tree until it is gone. We don't often have a tree and when we do, it is usually small and our M&D put it on the table...we are not usually tempted to bother it, but I do have to admit that sometimes I would like to get up and play with the ribbons on the presents!! Purrs to you and your Momma!! Lautrec (and Tiny and the Wooddawg)

  23. Beuatiful! Just beautiful! Your mommy and daddy did a fantastic job decorating....but one would like to know how it would have turned out if you would not have been directing thier every move....I'm just sayin'....

  24. Hi Madi! We love your tree! And congrats to your mom and dad for winning that fight with it! Mom has a bunch of ornaments from Crate and Barrel too, but she stopped putting them up when Virgil moved in (kitten + glass ornaments = big crash). Maybe one year when all the kittens are grown up she can put them up again!

  25. What a beautiful tree! Ours isn't up. It's more the size of a small bush. Blog Mom and Daddy say they're too old to move furniture around for the tree and they have no place to put anything extra these days anyway, so they put up the exact kind they used to make fun of Daddy's Mom for. We don't know when it's going up. Next week maybe, or the week after.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  27. That's such a pretty tree, Madi!! Now how does your mom stop you from whapping all those toys...er, we mean, ornaments on it?? Our mom won't put up the tree for another week or so because we always knock the ormanents off of it and bat them around the house.

  28. Madi, your Christmas Tree looks wonderful with all of the antique ornaments! You look pretty proud of your self all curled up on the skirt!

    Don't even think about trying to climb it! After all, you're a Diva and that is beneath you! MOL
    Chin scratches to you,
    Hugs to Mom & Dad for a super job
