family together/tree

My kid brother is home and we actually have a tree this year. (I also have a new brace for my wrist that is letting me type a little more normally, so we'll see how it goes)
Nina decided to help us set up the tree.



That's in the old dining room/piano room. I found my hat that I have to wear every year whilst handing out presents. I don't know how I got the job, but it looks better with my hair black than light brown.



Piano in front of me and the tree and window screen in the background. :) We sorted through the boxes of ornaments and only put up the ones that had meaning for us, or my brother and I had made. We had fun working out who had made what in a couple of cases because our names weren't on them. The gum chain was a present from our grandma who loves yard sales.



And Nina had to make sure that everything was right with the presents. Hers isn't under there yet. :)

I absolutely love these pictures! What a pretty cat! My cats had fun "helping" me make Christmas gifts. That kind of help I could do without. :) I made one of those gum chains when I was a kid. It ended up being 35 feet long when I finished it. Everyone I knew was giving me gum wrappers to add to the chain. To this day I can still make those chains.

Thanks, that what everyone says when they see her for the first time - and she knows it. Una gatita princesa de la Mexico. (I think my spelling just sucked there) Aren't they cute, though, when they want to "help" with things around Christmas. Nina likes to prove she still has some kitten in here.
I have no clue how long ours is, but I don't think it's that long. Wow. Ours actually smelled like gum for a couple of years. My grandma is a little strange with presents, but we love her. :)
