That wouldn't worry me as much as having to check through every single bulb to find the only broken one that stops all the others from working. :lol:

No kidding! :lol: The worst is when you get them on the tree, then half of them go out. :x

I'm hoping the electric bill won't take too much of a hit this year, since we've switched over to LED lights for the tree. Blame hubby for the number. He wraps every single branch! Not complaining though, because it always looks amazing.

The girls and I got all the ornaments on today. :D For so long the really delicate ones were packed away so they wouldn't get broken. Now that the girls are older, we've been pulling them out. This year's tree is almost all of my favorite glass ornaments. :D Hubby told me how beautiful he thinks it looks, then reminded me that, if we get kittens next year, they may go back into storage for awhile. :roll:

Saw my nearly-four nephew at the weekend, and he came out with a couple of gems.

His grandparents have been looking after him for the last few days, so I asked if they had been good elves or naughty pixies. He thought it over with a cheeky look on his face and gave the funniest possible answer: one of each. No further explanation was necessary, we didn't have to ask which was which.

His second quip came as I was putting him to bed. I learned that he doesn't worry about bedbugs because "every night in dreams I have a sword!" If you come across my nephew in dreamland I advise you to run. :shock:

Grandson has written letter,"Dear Santa, have I been good? Reply on back." and left it in his stocking. Guilty conscience perhaps?
