Christmas Cheer

♫ OH THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS…

…wonderful? 

Christmas is just two weeks away, but El Niño is keeping Chicago relatively toasty. Nevertheless, after sad news this week, we were eager to perk up with some holiday cheer. Step one was getting a Christmas tree.

We brought the whole gang to sniff out the perfect one

Penny decided to taste a few but quickly learned Christmas trees are a treat for the eyes, not the stomach

At home, my supervisors made sure I did a good job getting our tree set up

 Whatever the temperature outside, a warmly lit tree and a warmer fire make it feel like Christmas

Eko and Penny also received their first gift of the season. They’re pretty easy to buy for.

Considering everything I buy comes in boxes, and they love boxes

Eko wasn’t initially keen to share his new (if temporary) bed, but in deference to spreading the holiday cheer he finally acquiesced.

Tis the season!

We’re all set for the holidays. Although, if this weather keeps up we may also need to dust off our beach chairs.
