We finally put the tree up several days ago (I say “we” very loosely … I did nothing, except pull an awesome prank on the cats! [ http://blog.scottsontherocks.com/blog/2013/12/21/how-to-train-cats/ ] ). Christmas has really snuck up on us this year and everyone kept saying “we CAN’T put the tree up yet “_______” is not here, we all have to be here!” Problem is, they are NEVER ALL HERE!
So, tree is up but NO ornaments! we CAN’T put the ornaments on yet “_______” is not here, we all have to be here!” (Courtney is in FL: [ http://blog.scottsontherocks.com/blog/2013/12/22/die-like-a-klingon/ ]
Actually, the real reason is probably because they could not find the ornament hooks. 😉
I suggested we use clothes pin. (Awh, you know that’s funny! Redneck ornament hooks!)
I went to the garage, first box, right here in plain sight. We now have A FEW ornaments on the tree!
…Abby showed up to hang out. When Jeff walked in the room and began talking to the kids… I pointed and said “that… is… NOT Ashley.” That wasn’t a problem ;-)… several minutes later he told Abby to “help me put ornaments on the tree.” Without skipping a beat “I’m comfortable, bro.” Stepped right into Ashley’s shoes: [ http://blog.scottsontherocks.com/blog/2013/09/04/good-story-bro-tell-it-again/ ] She’s lot taller so now we have ornaments “up high!”
As they were all going through our eclectic collection of handmade-by-kid ornaments, Abby said “Hey, I made this!” After finding a few, we decided to give her credit 1/5 of the kid ornaments!
