Every year, Jesse and I end up going somewhere other than our own home for Christmas so we always do our own little celebration before the craziness of travel begins. We usually do a nice meal at home and then do stockings and presents to each other and of course our kitty, Callie. I wanted to show everyone our decorations this year in our new place, inside and out. Since we were gone to Europe for a large chunk of December, we weren't going to put up any lights. BUT, I couldn't stand it so I put some up on our banisters outside for sanity's sake. We gave Callie a new catnip fish and of course, she couldn't help not laying in the wrapping paper from our gifts!
