Yep, it’s another Christmas tree picture:


Seymour’s had Data for longer than I’ve known him, but the Enterprise is a recent acquisition.  I told Seymour and Bubbles they’d wear out the batteries on it the other night; as we were setting up the tree, they kept pushing the ornament’s play button so they could hear the intro from Star Trek: The Next Generation.  It was awfully funny, and reminded me of when I was a kid.  My grandma used to have these bird ornaments that would sing when you tapped their beaks.  Her cardinal ornament was my favorite; they have such a pretty song.  I’m pretty sure I wore out its batteries. 🙂

In the end, we decided that, so long as no one shows the boys how it works, our pretty ornament will live to speak another year.

What are some of your favorite ornaments?

We’ve been decorating at work today.  Each year, we put up two Christmas trees – one in our lobby and one in our entryway.  As we were trying to string the lights on the trees this morning, Bob Rivers’ Christmas classic kept running through my head.

Luckily, we managed to untangle all the lights, and it was totally worth all the hassle.  I mean, even the drunken Christmas tree looks a lot better now than it did this morning. 🙂

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  Inside, anyway.  Outside, most of the snow has melted and the temperature is hovering just north of freezing.


But inside, we’ve been decorating.  And it looks purty.

Do you like to decorate for Christmas?
