Our tree is up...it's almost decorated. I've had a bit of a problem getting it done this year as a major part of our Christmas and our lives is missing. The first thing our dear sweet Sophie Cat did each year was to lie down under our tree...and start to "steal" ornaments from the bottom branches. You can see her favorites in the photo of her above. I miss that.
The photo above is from 2003...we were all still quite happy in CA...and Sophie was looking for Santa, I'm sure. We miss her more than words can ever express. Hug your furry friends for me, ok?
