The Christmas tree has been up for just under a week and the Polar Express has been set around the tree. This is about as far as we have gotten with our Christmas decorations. The week after Thanksgiving is a hectic week even though I take a full week of vacation after thanksgiving. The living room is still loaded with unpacked boxes of decoration awaiting their respective placement. I do a little more hunting than working on the Christmas stuff. However I have noticed during the past few holidays a train fan club has grown. Our tree is in front of the sliding glass doors and the cats line up each year to watch the train circle the tree. This year though has been a little different. The cats will paw at the glass doors until we start the train on its journey. Then they sit there moving their heads in circles watching the train. The fan club has gotten to the point that the cats will MEOW after bedtime forcing my wife to come down and start the trains just to calm down this fan club. I just laugh and tell her to be thankful the cows haven’t found a way to get on the porch.
