I'm actually feeling a tad bit better and poor Mr. MoonCat is like a little kid about sparkly decorations, so we're going to get with the program and try to cheer it up around here. He is of the opinion that I will feel even better if I have pretty things to look at.. (If you have seen Chevy Chase's movie "Christmas Vacation", you'll have an idea of what Mr. MoonCat's vision of decorating entails....Mine is closer to the Charlie Brown version.)
Of course, my agreement to go ahead and decorate has now spawned arguments about the tree. He wants a GIANT tree
while I would prefer a smaller, more manageable tree.
His theory is that we have a giant ceiling in the great room so we should have the GIANT tree. My counterpoint is that the big tree will cost 3 times that of the one I like and just because we have the space, doesn't mean we need to fill it!
Plus, I have a vision of the tree sitting in the lower-ceilinged corner with goodies all around it ~ off of the floor where lions and tigers roam. I have an old corner tv stand that we're not using similar to the one below:
So what do you think? A 12ft-ish tree or a more modest, manageable, magnificent tree of about 4 or 5 feet sitting on a pretty stand with a village nestled below? Whichever way we go, you know it'll have to be made secure from the ferocious felines...
**Are you getting the impression that everything we do around here comes back to the critters? How will it affect them? What kind of destruction and havoc can they wreak? Gotta love 'em or else....
