Daily Note: December 9, 2008

Our house is so festive right now it's ridiculous. It's like Christmas exploded all over our house. Or like Sandra Lee used my entire house for one of her giant, themed "tablescapes". Every time I walk in the door I'm hit by a wall of gold, silver and fir. It's suddenly very easy for me to see how some people can spend thousands of dollars on holiday decor. I feel like all of our decor when looked at individually is very classy, but I am starting to wonder how many classy decorations you can put in one room before it starts to look not-so-classy. The truth is though, that I don't care. Part of me wants to go totally overboard. I've been to Target like 10 times in the last week and every time I find an excuse to visit the seasonal aisle. Mostly, I really want to get a tiny Santa suit for our cat. Or at least reindeer antlers. Like this (only better because my cat isn't ugly like this one):

That picture made me laugh...

It is, I believe, the cat that belongs to the family of the "baby that sucks" previously featured on Maggie's award-winning The Bad Check Diaries.

I'm excited to see the Christmas explosion! Don't take any of it down...not a single gold ribbon or fir bough.
