You turn your back for one moment and what happens? Golden Destructo maims another piece of holiday finery. The pic below is of a lovely handmade piece and shows that EmmaLou has a penchant for chewing off things that stick out (as in ears on a fuzzy toy) or things that are ‘pointy’. Fortunately, I can repair the damage, mostly. But it shows what she can do in the blink of an eye. One minute she was on the couch watching tv w/Devoted Spouse, the next she was beside the kitchen table wreaking havoc with my table decorations.
I think she’s just so excited about her upcoming birthday (Tues) that she couldn’t help herself – she had to chew something. Today we’re making special cupcakes for her big day – okay, we’re making cupcakes because Devoted Spouse and I want cupcakes; EmmaLou has nothing to do with it. But, she will get to enjoy a cupcake on her special day.
Here’s our Christmas tree – or at least most of it – I had a hard time getting a picture because of how the tree is situated this year – it’s in my dining room corner and I didn’t want to get too much furniture in the shot. I’m not the world’s best photographer – and what you don’t see in this pic thankfully is the wrapping paper mess that is still on my dining room table.
We’re pretty much ready for Santa to arrive. It’s a busy time here – two birthdays and Christmas all in the same week. We are supposed to get a little snow tomorrow but I don’t think we’re having a white Christmas this year and I can live with that.
I’m not sure if I’m anticipating more what Santa might bring, or about what’s next on EmmaLou’s Christmas list of household items to destroy.
