Still Behind ~

By now I had hoped to be ready for Christmas.  I should know better :)  Unlike Kim, I knew I only had one weekend left.  Oh, well, I am sure we will both be ready (or somewhat ready) when the day arrives.
I still have a few Christmas letters to write, a bit of shopping and wrapping, two more boxes to ship, but the big tree is finally done!  The same tree that crashed to the floor last year and destroyed so many memories.  DSO modified the stand so I'm holding my breath.  This was taken without a flash so it is bit blurry.
Salt glazed Santas in the wall box I bought last month.
I need to go un-decorate part of a mid-size tree.  Half the lights went out.  UGH.  That's one of my evening tasks.
This was the view I had when I went to get Ellie up this morning.  She makes me laugh.  On Christmas Day it will be two years that she came to live with me.  Time sure does fly.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Your tree looks great and you are right we will be done ready or not.

  2. Your tree looks great. Hope it stays upright this year. And I hope we both pull off this holiday. The other day I bought gift bags and then I remembered I have nothing to put in them. Lol. Happy Anniversary to Ellie. Cute butt. Lol

  3. Your tree and santas are wonderful. It is nice to have things done and be able to relax and enjoy the holidays.


  4. How pretty your decorations are, especially the santa's. What a whirlwind the holidays are with all the prep, but so beautiful. As I get older, I reminisce more. I see Ellie is working hard too! Happy Holidays to all

  5. Your tree look Beautiful! Ellie is too funny!

  6. Morning Lauren, your tree is beautiful and I love those salt glazed Santa's, perfect spot for them. Sweet Ellie is funny, cute little behind.Christmas Blessings Francine.

  7. Love those new salt glazed Santas! I'll bet your SO did a perfect job of making a sturdy tree base. Ellie's picture was a hoot. Saundra

  8. LOL half my lights went out too!
    Ellies view is a hoot.

  9. LOL!!! Oh Miss Ellie! Looks like a great wagon by your tree. I never knew there was a tool that determines which bulb is out and saves the string. It's a beautiful tree.

  10. I don't think anybody is ready for Christmas this year, lol except Ellie. She hasn't got a care in the world.

    I love your Salt Santas and that little wall box is a perfect place for them.

    I think we should start a new tradition of getting Christmas gifts after Christmas when we have more time.


  11. I think Ellie has the right idea, just staying under the covers. She is a sweetie. I love those salt glazed Santa's I think it looks so pretty and so nice.

  12. Hi, Lauren, Love your decorating. The tree is so pretty, love the tall case clock and that wagon is to die for! Sweet little Ellie, such a lucky little doggie :)

  13. Your tree looks wonderful, Lauren, and Ellie is adorable from every angle!!! Merry Christmas to you and all your family :)
