A child’s first Christmas is a special thing… especially when it involves a tree covered in (what seem to be) dangling cat toys. At eight months old, Finley was eager to help us with every step of tree trimming.
First, he helped me trim the lower branches off our tiny tree by attacking them and tearing them out of my hands as I cut them.
Then it was time to untangle the lights. (Kittens are particularly good at skills requiring finesse and patience.)
Here he is helping his daddy string lights on the tree. So attentive!
Time for cat toys — er, ornaments — the best part! We struggled to put them on faster than Finley could take them off.
Helping his dad water the tree by trying to drink the water as it pours.
The finished tree! (If you look closely, you’ll see a tiny face to the left of the stockings.)
We thought we were all done, but Finley thought otherwise. He decided to get a closer look at the tree… by climbing up the inside!
And that’s the last time you’ll ever see the tree looking so nice. Current count: 1 loop of lights ripped off, 1000 pine needles scattered across the floor, 6 ornaments MIA.
Best Christmas ever.
