They could not be more wrong! I have extensively examined these items on the blogs of our friends and I have a firm game plan on how I would "handle" a Christmas Tree.
First I would take a running leap to the mid-section (why start from the bottom?). Next I'd head for the inner core (to the chorus of "Greyson No!"). Once I'd reach the top I'd knock off whatever tree topper my parents put up (probably a "holiday neutral" snowflake or a reindeer) and perch in victory at the top, until I'd leap to the sofa. Rinse and repeat.
Quill would be all over the cord nibbling and the ornaments wouldn't stand a chance with those massive paws taking a whap at them. Garland? He's on it!
Christmas Tree "Handled."
Now where is the wrapping paper and those stockings hung by the fire?
Merry Christmas to all of our friends!!
