Ah, I can't wait. I love Christmas. Socks loves Christmas too.
We don't put the presents out under the tree until Christmas eve, because otherwise, our little angel would go batty. (My grandmother has this obsession with ribbons and bells, so we wouldn't get any sleep at all with the insane racket of the bells!)
The only thing we can't do is garland. Socks seems to think it would make a grand necklace, and I'm so scared she would strangle herself. She has a little felt stocking that I sewed for her when I was 8 years old, and it's pretty ugly and it's full of holes, but she knows it's hers because it's the one that always smells like Pounce treats.
(It's really cute. I couldn't spell her name right, so it says "Sokks"...LoL). Her favorite ornament is my Miss Piggy one, with the sparkly figure skates. We HAVE to put it near the bottom so she can bat it around, or else she'll do everything in her power to find it off the top.
And she ADORES egg nog. If anybody leaves it around, consider it gone. (Nah, we don't drink the kind of the alcoholic variety). I know it's bad for her, but she only gets it once a year.
