Time to Decorate

09 Dec

We finally got everything together here at the Hotel Thompson and finished decorating for the holidays.  We don’t put up a tree here for obvious reasons – two purr things, a pig and a dog now.  That tree wouldn’t stand five minutes being decorated in our living room.  Trust me on that.  Between the purr things climbing it and exploring, the dog watering it and chewing on the bottom branches and well me – looks innocently – head bunting it, it would get tired and fall down to sleep.  I’m just saying and being realistic here.  It’s a good thing mom and dad agree.

So no tree here.  But don’t frown.  We have a Mickey Mouse lamp pole.  That fits in perfect here at the Hotel Thompson.  You know my mom LOVES that mouse with the gloves and we still get the pretty lights from the pole.  And the pole is sturdy.  I mean really sturdy like 20-25 pounds.  Hey, it’s gotta be sturdy to hold that huge Mickey Mouse head – snorts.


We also put out my stocking for Christmas.  What?  You think it’s too small?  I told mommy I needed a bigger one.  One can never be too big for all of the goodies that dear Santa might leave in my stocking.  You know – like fruits, vegetables, Gold Fish and Animal Crackers – snorts.

I just have to find the perfect place to hang my stocking.  For some reason, daddy says we can’t put it on the fireplace mantle this year.  Something about it pulling down on the mantle last year.  One heavy stocking and your scarred for life huh?  Bummer daddy.

So I have to find a place for my little stocking.  I’m thinking on the back of the front room door.  That would surely be a nice place to put it.  And also Santa won’t miss it, right?  What do you think.  Any suggestions?

    Looking grrrrreat guys! That Christmas stocking is just PAWSOME!! Still no decorating happening on this side, mom says she will put the tree up once she goes on leave…and finds the energy. We think that may be code for “no tree”.

    I put up a tree each year despite two purr-things – my cats know how to behave – and climbing a tree is a NO …

      Well trained they are my friend. Us here – we like to look at it as a challenge more so than training – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

        Trust me, I would find a way to make you entirely avoid the Christmas tree … I am very determined when it comes to pets – I have to be. My cat are left alone with the tree for several days after Christmas, before I get it out. Last year I did not even secure the tree with some wire! No broken baubles, no tree fiasco, all was well! If I could not convince my two to leave the tree well alone I would have to stop getting a tree – as I have to work between Christmas and New Year.

        Snorts and somewhat shivers. You mean business. I think we would be afraid and thus your plan would work – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I look for a place for my stocking too… it’s dangerous to hang it near my pawrents diy-chimneys :o)

      Exactly brother. We gotta find the *perfect* spot for Santa to be able to see it and fill it to the brim XOXO – Bacon

    I hope they hang the stocking low enough so you can keep checking it. Sometimes elves start filling it before Christmas! Why wait??

    Love and licks,

      True. Speaking of elves – shivers. That little misfit Don Juan better stay clear of my stocking. XOXO – Bacon

    Hmmm not sure where a good place to hang your stocking would be – but so long as it gets filled up with goodies it doesn’t really matter where it hangs 🙂

    I haven’t put up a tree in 30 years. As long as I have lights and garland on the fireplace mantel, I’m set. I don’t have the room for a tree.

      We really don’t either thus the MM pole lamp. Plus I think that pole gives daddy ideas for mommy – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Changed my mind about taking a vacation-someone needs to be here to help keep Bacon out of trouble.

      Amen to that my sweet dear friend – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    That Christmas stocking is huge! Hope you’ve been very good this year. 🙂

    I think the Christmas pole is a most excellent idea. Inside trees and critters don’t mix well! Great stocking!

    I think the tree is the best showy place for a stocking like that, Bacon…*mumbles: or better put the tree in it*… MOL.. Now tell me, my furriend, where do I find a stocking that size… 😉 Happy Pawkisses 🙂 ❤
