The Twelve Things of Christmas

*Clears throat*

*Tunes imaginary instruments*
 
 
On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
Twelve eggs from ho-ome

Eleven colored windows

Every year we alternate colored lights and candles. One year is traditional, one year a little more modern. This year we’re back to modern.

 
Ten boughs of fresh pine (from out backyard)
unnamed-16

We do them on the stairs and on the lights in the hallway every year. Mom and I go out into the back yard and cut the pine ourselves.

 
Nine Christmas bo-ows
unnamed-1

All made up by Mom the Magnificent.

 
Eight Christmas cookies
unnamed-13

Also all hand made by Mom the Magnificent.

 
Seven(ty two) feet of garland

And it’s still not enough to do the entire railing and stairs at the same time.

 
Six shelves of tooown

First, six shelves and then…THE WORLD!

…I mean the rest of the landing.

 
Five sto-ock-ingggs
unnamed-9

We used to hang them on the railing to the right but there’s a kitten in the house again so we found a cooler alternative that’s a bit more out of her reach.

Merry (like the Hobbit Meriadoc Brandybuck, not like Christmas)

Lila, our newest little edition whom we rescued from outside.

Samantha (Sammy) our grumpy old lady.

Pippin, (like the other Hobbit Peregrin Took. Get it, Merry and Pippin?)

 
Three tall trees
unnamed-5

6ft

 

unnamed-6

7 1/2ft

 

unnamed-12

9ft (We’ve gotta get a ladder out to decorate this one, but eleven years after buying our giant Santa tree topper we finally have a tree big enough to put him on!)

 
Two hyper goats
unnamed-18

Raven and Starling, always hungry.

 
And a fuz-zy alpaca named Hope
unnamed-2

Alpaca selfies!

(Oops…make that two)

Hope’s new friend Bella.

Happy Holidays!
