It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
...here at Casa Mathers.
Here's our little "count the days to Christmas thingy", which always tugs a bit at my heart. Each time I move an ornament from the sky to the tree, I miss the little hands and voices of children begging for it to be their turn to do it.
Here's the MagnifiCat, Mango, sitting in front of the stockings all hung on the bookcase with care. (This is the Paul Mathers family we're talking about here!)
Here are the curtains I just hung in the room that, Lord willing, will be transformed into a dining room by next holiday season, so we can host feasts again. Oh, and you can catch a little peek, over there to the right, of the offensive wallpaper you may have heard us decrying these past three years. (To the left you can see I've finally begun peeling it away.)
And, finally, here's our tree. The fabric draped behind it is to cover, you guessed it, the hallucinogen inspired southwestern wallpaper.
