We had a good meal (pork loin and fancy potatoes)
and M&M cookies!

We enjoyed some beautiful sunsets:
And we did our Christmas decorating! Greg put up the lights outside, and I did the inside stuff.
While Greg was putting up the lights outside, Allistiar and Claude were watching from the inside guest room.
Allistair was a little concerned about what was happening.
Here's what you would see if you came over for dinner!
Welcome! Come right in!
Inside, I put up quite a few beautiful ceramic artworks my Mom painted.
These gorgeous carol singers are a happy memory from her (always fantastically decorated) house.
We are doing "easy Christmas" this year (3 boxes of decorations instead of 8 and the minimalist tree rather than the one with every ornament I have ever collected since I was born + tinsel + lights). This one is a gold tinsel tree with great big retro multi-colored lights. You can see it glowing in the above photo.
Later on, Allistiar decided to burrow under the rug, and I snuck over and started taking tons of photos.
Most of them turned out ADORABLE, so I had to post almost all of them!
This is my favorite because his little ears are folded down!
Allistair also decided to steal a bow from a Christmas package I was wrapping . . .
I hope your weekend was an excellent one, too!
Are you still eating turkey?
