Packing Up Our Tree


I owe my readers an apology for not letting ya know I wasn’t gonna get a blog post up last Friday. Truth to tell, I didn’t know I wasn’t gonna be able to. You see, the day before was Mom L’s birthday and wellβ€”(shuffling paws) Mom L kind’a forgot. But she really did have more important things to do because Dad P had some of her very special friends over to help her celebrate.

As for packing up our Christmas stuff, we all got it done the day after Christmas. I decided to nap and let everyone else get the hard work done.

The Kid Sage helped Dad P with the final packing upβ€”the Christmas Tree was going back into its box until next year.

Dad P, I'm not sure this is the box for the tree?

Dad P, I’m not sure this is the box for the tree? Will it fit?

TKS helped get every single ornament off the tree and packed away. But she was worried about her pal the Christmas Tree. She wanted her to be comfy napping away for a whole year.

Yep, you were right Dad P. This is the right box. It fitted and it sitted perfectly!

Yep, you were right Dad P. This is the right box. It fitted and it sitted perfectly!

But as Dad P started to get the tape out to close up the tree, TKS began to get anxious.

Dad P? Can our Christmas Tree come out again to be with me next year?

Dad P? Can our Christmas Tree come out again to be with me next year?

Of course it will come out again next year TKS! Silly kitty! And after the Christmas Tree was safely and carefully placed in storage, we all said good bye to the Christmas Season of 2016. Hope yours was lots of fun and that you are ready for our New Year called number 2017!

  5. I’m not sure that I will be able to get my tree to fit and sit so nicely as Dad P did!

    TKS did a great job of making sure Dad P put your tree back just right. We’re going to leave ours up for a while longer, just because we all love it so much (especially Zoe). πŸ™‚

    Happy New Year, dear friends!

    Happy New Year to all of you!

  15. Belated happy birthday to your mum! Happy New Year to all of you. Our decorations don’t come down until Twelfth Night.

  19. You can tell peoples personality types by what day they pack up the tree. Some do it the day after Christmas, some do it in February, and then there are the inbetweeners like us who did it yesterday.

    Merry Christmas πŸŽ„ Happy Birthday, Miss L. πŸŽ‚ And a Wonderful New Year 🍾 To Everyone, 🌎

  21. Well done, kids. Mom will put away all our Christmas things today. It will be easier to be a good girl when all that shiny stuff is gone. I hope I am a good helper like you kids were when Mom starts getting the decorations squared away.

    Love and licks,

  22. Aww TKS is a very good helper indeed. Things here will be packed up very soon, in fact more things will be going than came, as a new year resolution is to tidy the Palace up…. By peep’s standards that will mean it’ll be done by December 31. MOL

    Happy New Year to you all, and may 2017 bring Health and Happiness and Prosperity. purrs Erin

  23. Our tree comes down next weekend.

  24. Our tree starts coming down tomorrow! I don’t know if it will be with us next year – my human is thinking of (gasp!) replacing it!

  25. We hope you had a pawsome Chrissymouse and a Great New Year.
    And belated birthday greetings to your Mom.
    Pawpats and kitty kissies to you all.

  26. Happy New Year you guys and we hope to see Sage’s tree in time for Christmas 2017!!!

  27. My christmas tree is still up and will stay so until the 6th. That is traditional here in Germany, that the tree stays up until Epiphany which closes the Christmas season.

    In Old England (pre victorian-times) they had no Christmas tree, but on the 6th was the 12th day of Christmas. Until then the Yule-log had to last, the Christmas decorations stayed up and on the 6th was a dance (well, with the aristocracy, not with normal folk).

  28. That Sage is so cute.

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
