We have our tree up.
The LED lights photograph blue but they are rainbow colored. (including purple which gram pointed out was different) Our first real tree together. Only took 15 years. We never lived anywhere we could have one really. Florida then tiny Boston apartments. I only had enough ornaments for a tiny 2 foot tree. But that's OK I don't want to load it. Most my ornaments are Hello Kitty honestly. I have 5 different types and over 20 total. I take it back we have a LOT more ornaments but they are all glass. Robots and Star Wars but Waffle can't be trusted. All the Hello Kitty ones just happen to all be plastic and wood.
I made Dave a set of Chicken McNuggest one Christamas after he was first diagnosed and knew he couldn't have them anymore.
We also have this Santa dave has named "fire hazard Santa" which is funny because it isn't. He appears to be 50's - 70's and has one of those old goofy skinny cords and he is all rigged up in the back with tape and string to keep the light in place. We have no idea where he came from. After my birthday we found him on the counter. Neither Dave nor I saw it put there. We called all our family and asked who left it. No one is confessing! Our topper was made by my Great Grandmother who was nearly blind towards the end when she made these. She had eye transplants twice.
Gram came for her first sleepover at our house. I hadn't been able to get her to Boston until recently (we had a horrible family tragedy in the city before I was born) and so I schemed with Dave on how to get her to come and stay over. She was scared of traveling alone. But literally she takes a train 5 minutes from her house, rides it until end of line and we pick her up. Easy. I called her and asked if she wanted to come and stay. She did her typical "well let me think about it' I said NO, no thinking, Yes or No right now. She said yes! ha. I know the trick now. We took her to have Thai food for the first time.
My (annoying) loving father told her is was going to be spicy and she wouldn't like it. What the hell does he know he hasn't ever had it. I had to keep reassuring her it wasn't. We got her Chicken Satay and Shrimp Pad Thai. Not only did she love it she asked for more sauce! We also took her for a chair massage. This type. She says a lot how since Pop passed she doesn't get her neck rubs. It was Pop's birthday this week (which is why I wanted her to come so bad) We also put up the tree and watched Lifetime Christmas movies. It is a well known fact gram doesn't like cats. She is allergic (me too) and thinks they shouldn't go on furniture, beds, bedrooms.. the list goes on. She was worried about it. So we locked her up in our bedroom and kept the cats out at night. But you know what? They totally won her over.
Daisy miss "I hate the world and most people in it. I am fussy" loved gram. I think she is what won her over. She still doesn't want to sleep with them or want them on counters but she gave Daisy a lot of love. She kept calling Waffle cute too.
She is totally cute. As she robs you blind.
How was your weekend?
Oh and I put a tree up at work. This was from our first Boston apartment originally.
