Our Christmas Tree

Happy Monday ya'll!
Who wants to see my Christmas tree?

 Dis me Puddles...not da tree.
At da Puddles household we LOOOOOOOVES Christmas!
And mum likes everything to be just right and perfect.
(never happens though)
We put our tree up at da beginning of November cuz mum says it takes too long to get it just so
and her has to get really tired of da tree so hers don't get sad when it's time to take it down.
(it comes down Christmas Day)

Here's our tree withs not one beer can in sight.
 Since we don't ever get real snow, we put REAL fake snow on it.
(yes those are stuffed snowmen in our tree...gasp)

our tree at nite....
You sees da tree skirt?'s a table cloth!

 (Frankie close your eyes furs dis next foto)
Dis here is our tree topper, I thinks he escaped from Frankie's hill.

 Our freakin' wrappin paper has to be just right and matchy match too.
I don't knows of anybuddy else dat matches their paper to their tree decor.
I don't ask questions anymore...I just lives here.

WAIT...don't go no where yet.
Here's da weird part of our Christmas tree...
every other year mum changes it!
Yes,  dat is correct.
Dis year it is decked out in traditional year it will be done likes dis....

Mum says it matches our house betters than da red.
Her does red fur da little girl and Christmas is ALL bout her...and ME!

Nows every year our tree lights go out.
Dis year they went out da day we put it up so we seriously hope da lights haves gotten dat part out of their systems furs da remainder of da season.

Hopes you enjoyed seeing my tree(s).
I knows it was boring but thanks fur humoring me anyways.

Peace Out,


Gloria said...

Both trees are just beautiful! I surely undertand wanting to change it every year......even though I don't........I would like to!

Mango said...

Your tree is amazing. Could your mom possibly come to my estate because there is an alleged tree in our dining room that is freaking me out.


houndstooth said...

Oooooo! Puddles, your tree is lovely! I like it a lot, especially the pink! *sigh*

The candy cane antlers are from the haute couture designer Ye Olde Navy. ;) The stockings are from The Unruly Hound. She makes stockings to match a picture of you, and she does lots of breeds of dogs besides Greyhounds.


Maggie Mae said...


Your tree(s) is beeootiful!!! My mom luvs how everything is all matchy matchy AND her luvs da idea of changing da colors each year but MY mom is not too creative so it will never happen in my house. ;)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Mr. Pip said...

Wow, Puddles, your tree is perfect!! Now, poor old Pip, is a little embarrassed by his tree is one big hodge podge and mama's gift wrapping skills are lacking to say the least ...

Actually this year my little sister and papa decorated the tree - so we have an excuse for it looking kind of funny ...

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: I am a little afraid of those giant stuffed snowmen.

Mr. Pip said...

P.S.: Love your holiday picture! You look very sweet and innocent - I am pretty sure it will fool Santa.

Your pal, Pip

Madi and Mom said...

OMC Puddles both of the trees are beautiful. We can tell that each and every ornament was hung with TLC. That purrfect tree is your Mom's gift to all of you!!! Well Done Mom. OMC your Mom matches the wrapping paper with the tree...we think there is a medicine for that. MOL

Puddles we are glad to see you are learning and I cracked up at your comment on our blog. Thanks for the smiles.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Mack said...

Your trees are amazing! I so hope my mom sees this post, because her Grinchy self didn't even put up a tree this year!
Your mom is so talented!

Minna Krebs said...

NOW you know someone else who matches da wrapping paper!!!!!

OMD my momma is weird like that too!!


The Heartbeats said...

Your tree is so pretty! Momma has all dem Gone With the Wind ornyments. I ate a couple of dem last year and with those Germie tails, we don't put many ornyments on our tree. And there are no ornyments on the bottom! Ha!

Wiggles & Licks,

Minna Krebs said...

.....And her takes it down on Christmas Day too?!?!

I thinks your mom might be related. One year my Aunt Pam had her tree down by lunchtime!! WTH!?!?! We opened da pressies, ate and then her marched around picking up da decorations! Sheesh!

Frankie Furter said...

Holy Gwalk A Moley girrrrl your mom makes the matchy matchy thing really WORK. With the exception of those... SHIVER.. Snowmen I (Frankie Furter) Love this years tree the mostest... butt my MOM went all cracker crazy about your NEXT year's tree. That woman thinks pink is a grrrreat Christmas color. Now if you want a BUNCH of snowmen.. fur NEXT year, you just let me know...beclaws I have Plenty to Share!!!
PeeS... my tree is little. Do you get a HOOOOGE tree beclaws there are THREE Fur Folks in the house and need plenty of space fur gettin Under it?

Hound Girl said...

Your Tree is so BEAUTIFUL! Your mom did a fantastic job. I love the snowman idea as a tree topper!
Wrapping packages is my favorite part of the season. Now dont let me forget to comment on your beautiful picture of you, so pretty.
ps. we use table cloths as tree skirts too :)

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

My mom duss not has the matchy match gene, nor duss she git with the whole xmass program thing - says it be too much werk. But we sure can enjoy looking at yours! Thanks!

Amber DaWeenie said...

jen said...

Puddles your tree is beautiful!!!
Your Mom is very good at decorating!!
I love the fact that she matches the wrapping paper to the tree!

Sam said...

Wow, your Christmas tree looks great! We need to get your mom to come do our tree for us!


Corbin said...

Tree? There was a tree in that post? Oh... sorry, I'm still stuck on the first photo...

Sammy and Andy said...

What a gorgeous tree, but we think there should be a star with your picture on it for the tree topper, Puddles....jus' sayin'


Leonardo said...

Morning Ms. P.

Our Mom has two trees. The one in the family room has all the coloredful lights, ornyments that the kids have made over the years and "country" kinda stuffs. She uses a very special tree skirt that my grammy made before she died.

THEN SHE HAS HER VERY OWN TREE in the dining room. This one has white lightys, antiquey and victorian onryments. NO ONE is allowed to touch Mom's tree. If you do, you die 1000 deaths. (or that's what she tells the kids)

Both trees are beautiful, but mom is really loving the pinky tree.

Have a great day.
Leo, Grady and the Mom.

Oh Miss Puddles - u haz boo-ti-ful trees an'your mom even dekoratez'em all the way tu the bottom - our mom leavez sum of that bottom part of the green stuff without ornamentz; wonder why she duz that?

Tucker said...

Oh wow your tree is very pretty. You obviously don't have three bad kitties and a great dane tail whipping around it. For some reasons Momma puts all the important ornaments about the 3 foot level. I can't see them up that high.... what gives?

woof - Tucker

Sequoia & Petunia said...

Puddles your tree is fantastic! We love the topper (sorry Frankie). We only put up the tiny weeney tree this year because we are movings super soon (paws crossed). Is your tree know the one that smells? Looks reals. We have a fakes one. Love the tree!


Yoda, Brutus & "Sally" said...

JackDaddy said...

It's a good thing your Mom doesn't see our tree - it doesn't match anything! :)

Pepsi Bum said...

The tree is gorgeous! The 2nd tree looks like it'll take a long time to set up. Will your Mom put it up in October next year??


Brian said...

Beautiful!!! You should win the tree decorating contest!!!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Puddles, that sure is a beautiful tree!! Both of them!!! You wouldn't want to see our tree because it doesn't exist! Mom said she's been to busy on the phone to put up a tree yet! Can you imagine. Maybe tomorrow! Lots of love, Holly and mom

rottrover said...

How Beautiful!! Your Mom is very different from ours in the crafty, make the house pretty way!!

Remington said...

First off....the picture of you made my little heart are beautiful, Miss Puddles! AND your tree is amazing! I bet you sit and look at it all day....I know I would.

Anonymous said...

I think I like this year's tree better than the pink one, but that's just me. It is SO pretty. I hope you all don't take off with ornaments off of the tree like Riley has been doing. She's naughty...I think Santa's bringing her coal and switches this year. Not you...from the looks of your picture you'll be getting lots of toys and treats and maybe a night on the big bed upstairs! Albert can sleep in your crate.

Martha and Bailey said...

Puddles your tree is very beautiful and we can see how much thought your mom puts into decorating it.
Now we dogs just tend to pee on trees as you know but humans are a puzzle!
We are not sure why they want their xmas tree to look so pretty but we agree yours is very pretty whether it be pink or red.
The idea of a beer bottle tree appealed to us too.......

♥ Sallie said...

I'm with Bunny. The pink tree is awesome! Very romantic. :)


Barbara said...

Puddles, please send your moms to my house, cuz I don't even have a tree up yet. She could do the decorating!

Oskar said...

My mom person goes all gaga crazy over the tree too. She doesn't try with the wrapping paper anymore though cause the kitties that live here tear it up if she makes it fancy.

Nubbin wiggles,

scotsmad said...

We love your tree(s)! Especially the part about the wrapping paper matching. We just get whatever paper is cheapest.

Gosh, my mom is just downright lazy compared to your mom! Wow! My jaw just dropped all the way to the floor when I saw your tree. It is SOOOOO bee-you-tee-mus! It looks like something out of a catalog or something. Gosh. My mom's just lucky to get the tree UP some years.

Wiggles & Wags,

Junior and Orion said...

Your tree is beautiful!!! But not as beautiful as that first picture!!!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

That is furry lovely!

I'm sure all the boyz reading your post were just dying to go help with the watering duties!


The Teacher's Pets said...

Heee heeee, Puddles! I cannot imagine living in a home where everything is matchy-matchy because here in my mom's home she is all about being "eclectic" (whatever that means) and beclaws of that she has no sense of style and I cover my eyes in shame everytime somebuddy visits us! And of course you know how she's late for everything, right? And of course you know already know that she hasn't put up one stinkin' Christmas decoration?

Erika said...

Puddles have you gotten your Momma's head checked lately? matching wrapping paper, changed every year? Your Momma is crazy! It sure is pretty though. Grandma isn't putting up a tree this year, lucky for her I think, otherwise I would have it down faster than you can say "what is that kitty doing now"!

Anny said...

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Wow! Both of the trees are gorgeous. And everything matches! Mama loves that. You and your trees ought to be on the cover of a magazine. It could make a matching display with Frankie's magazine spread.
