Christmas Decorations – tsk tsk Daddy Oh

02 Dec

 20131209-014402.jpg Oh boy.  That human daddy of mine just digs himself deeper and deeper this time of year.  Mommy asked him to take out some decorations for Christmas.  Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think the leg lamp is exactly what mommy had in mind.  He tried to fight for it saying that it was a classic and came from the movie, “A Christmas Story“.  He continued by saying that if it was good enough for Ralphie’s dad then it should be good enough for him.  Way to go daddy.  You need a shovel to dig yourself deeper into the hole?

I just bet you that all mom heard was blah, blah, blah and blah. She was patient and she was kind.  She let him make arguments over the said leg lamp.

I don’t know about you but that’s the way moms seem to be.  They get quiet and listen while you dig the hole bigger and bigger.  Just, you know, letting you stumble over yourself.  I watched and tried not to snort because I knew it was coming.  She said, “Listen Ralphie, if I dared you to stick your tongue to the frozen pole, would you do that too because everyone else was doing it?”  She’s good.  The leg lamp was put back in the attic.


But you see, daddy doesn’t learn that easily.  Mom told him to put up the tree while she went out shopping.  For some reason, I just don’t think that this is what mommy was talking about.

Needless to say, mom was out for about an hour.  I know she thought she was going to come home to a tree… just a tad bit bigger than this I’m guessing.

Let’s just say that daddy was batting two for two this weekend.  So, our tree and decorations really didn’t get worked on like I thought they were going to.  And the discussion about actually putting up a tree took place.  Tree or no tree.  Because someone – looking innocently – knocked over the tree last year.  That keeps coming up for some reason.  I don’t get it.  The tree got tired and thirsty so it took a nap.  That’s it.  Really.

    HA! We can’t put up a tree in this house due to cats. *shakes head in disgust* Too many years we have had trees come down and ornaments broken. I think that was the message your Dad was trying to convey. Why bother with a real tree when it will just come crashing down?

    Your Mom is smart and patient, Bacon. I would have taken one look and just said, “No,” as Lucy and Xena are always blogging that I say. Everyone here remembers the saying, “If Mama’s not happy, nobody’s happy.” Right? Oh, and no tree here this year, either. Just too much blamed work and it’s all on the Mama.

    Oh my! Mom says she’d let dad have that leg lamp. So his stocking is full of leg this Christmas and we all get what was going to be his goodies MOL

    We’re putting up a tree after many years of not having one. We HAVE TO! We have three great-grandchildren. And we’re having Christmas dinner. We’ve got it in the garage. It’s a beautiful white pine. None of our pets have seen a tree in the house. Should be interesting. We will either have heirloom decorations or not after the holidays. 🎄

      Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. I’m sure it will be absolutely beautiful. Christmas is such a wonderful time to see the priceless look of amazement in children’s eyes. I know you will have a blast at Christmas! XOXO – Bacon

    It was mom’s fault for not being specific enough about the tree. 🙂

      Snorts – said like a true man! That is exactly what daddy told her. Too funny! XOXO – Bacon

    “Someone” knocked over last year’s tree? Must have been Don Juan, Shelf Elf. Yeah…that’s the culprit. 😆 I loved the fabric IKEA had of a life sized Christmas tree and always wanted to put that up since space is always a premium around here.

      sshhh – it had to be Hemi. Yep. That’s it. I’m sticking to that answer. Hemi gets into everything. And yes space is always the problem. You have to redecorate the entire room just to make space for a tree. XOXO – Bacon

      Daddy thinks highly of his leg lamp. I don’t know why it has to sit in the garage. I think it’s cool for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    No tree means no presents. It’s just that simple. And, oh, Shelf on the Elf, or whatever that is, doesn’t count as a decoration. 🙂

      That evil Shelf on the Elf here called Don Juan needs a one way ticket to Hell. Yep I snorted that. And if I can ever catch the little fleabag – he is so flying. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
