A Christmas Poem

The Christmas tree is lush and green,

Our cards are hung up to be seen.

The pinecones are all laid out.

And our seasonal friends have returned to hang out.

While sunlight illuminates a poinsettia’s beauty,

Bill keeps a watchful eye over the house, fulfilling his duty.

Bart stands to attention on his very own ‘Christmas tree’,

While Ben is his usual self – innocent and pretty.

The aromas of Christmas cookies baking fill me with glee,

So I joyfully wish a happy holidays to you and your family!


  • How do you decorate your house at Christmas? Is it the same year to year or do you decorate with ‘themes’ or colour schemes in mind?

    Your cats are so gorgeous! And trust me, that is a HUGE compliment coming from me because I’m really not much of a cat lover. They always hate me for some reason haha

    I don’t do any decorating in my Orlando apartment, but my parents have done plenty of their own. It’s nice to be around a familiar house with lots of fun bells and festive lights everywhere I look. I wish there was a theme– it’s more like a mish mosh

    Ahhh how cute!!!! Your kitties are cute!!! We used to have an orange cat named, Oatmeal 😉

    Hmmmm every year I pretty much decorate the same, except this year I wasn’t allowed to put the village up on the mantel because Ryan says it too ghetto 😉

    Your Bill looks just like a kitty we are going to be looking after for several months! That same white cross on the middle of the face. your kitties and your decorations are sweet!

    Merry Christmas to you all!

    I love your poem! And the cats are positive superstars! You could make a gorgeous calendar of their pics. Thinking not Calendar Girls, but Calendar Kitties! xx

    I love the pine cones! I much prefer the natural or Adirondack Christmas look. we hang lots of garland with lights. our wreath above the mantel. Our new kitty is loving the Christmas tree. I just love the atmosphere of sitting in the living room with a hot cup of tea, Christmas movies on the TV, and the Christmas lights illuminating. 😉
