You can see she likes a more traditional look with multi colored lights and ornaments The CNA said hers is the biggest tree they ever seen in the ALF, lol. I hadn't even considered downsizing her tree but maybe next year.

I believe I have put up my last tree for the season. Marge has a collection of cool vintage glass ornaments. Sadly, we loose a couple each year because they are so fragile. I added deco mesh to her tree this year which doesn't leave room for all her ornaments so I basically did just vintage and left off her newer stuff. She was very happy because she can see the lights.

My blog buddy Julie mentioned that Eddie looked a bit like a reindeer in a previous post which got me thinking and onto Pixler to turn my boy into Rudolph! Hope you like it Julie.
Speaking of Pixler, I did some Christmas "photoshopping" on one dog photo on each of the 10 pages of the Ratbone Rescues website of doggies available for adoption. I believe it really helped motivate people to sign up s a Secret Santa for those lucky dogs - now almost all the dogs have a SS (yippee!) Here's a peek:

Jerry & I went to Mom's for Thanksgiving dinner. Sadly, Marge just wasn't up to attending. We had talked it up the last couple weeks and her ALF had her dressed up and hair done but when Jerry went to pick her up she had nodded off and refused to go. We're learning you can't get agreement from her if you wake her up. He hung around a while hoping she would change her mind but, instead, we had our first Thanksgiving without her.
What a surprise when we got there. We were expecting cousins Lea and Sonja (with their husbands) but Aunt Mary and Uncle Larry were there too! Mom knew but didn't tell any of us. We had a nice meal and a nice visit. After dinner mom and I went to Michael's which is our Thanksgiving tradition. Every year I ask the Michael's staff how they feel about working Thanksgiving evening and they say they love it because if you work Thanksgiving night you get black Friday off.
