Our Christmas Tree!

We like to try to cut our Christmas tree right after Thanksgiving - I figure we get the most use out of it that way :) The last few years we've been going to a place near Rice where you cut your own but the trees are slightly out of control and are gigantic. So, it's quite affordable and usually a little adventurous ;) ... just how we like it! lol ... so what you do is, show up to this old farm place, hunt down a giant tree that you like the top of, cut the top off and viola! You have your affordable cut-your-own Christmas tree!

After cutting it down

The tree being decorated at home ...while the kitties plot their attack ;) They're actually a lot better now at leaving the tree alone. Usually there are just some random ornaments on the ground every once in awhile but I try to leave the bottom part ornament-free to deter them.

Leidy is 1 year old :)

Leidy turned one year old on November 14th, 2012 (or somewhere around there at least - we had to guess at her birthday :) Here she is when we got her as a little pup!

And here she is modeling the same jacket she wore as a baby ;) She didn't love trying it on again but I had to see how it would fit ;) I couldn't get the straps under her belly at all to velcro and it was way too short ;) hehe

Here she is in the snow as a baby

and again as a year old!

The birthday girl with her birthday bone. Happy Birthday puppy dog :)
