It is a nativity scene
Plus we supervise when lit.
One of my favorite Santas has been placed in the cabinet. I love his face and all his glitter.
He looks like a kind, gentle 'ol Santa.
Speaking of faces that I love..
Someone has been in the office rootin' through the ribbon basket.
Her cave is becoming her treasure box.
She has a ping-pong ball tucked away at the back.
Something we do to lower the stress on Christmas day for our cats is provide a 'safe haven' for them when company arrives. We use the spare bedroom and provide them with water, litter box, food and blankets. Mr. Ed and Lily are always the first to occupy this room as they are both very old and unable to deal with the noise and quick movements of children. I always check on them throughout the day and keep a radio on for them (on low). If that doesn't seem to keep them calm, adding a little rescue remedy to their water will help.
