This week, Mom and Dad have been preparing the house for Christmas. We have been helping with the tree. It seems that they did not fully inspect this tree before bringing it into the house. It has all kinds of interesting smells on it, even though Mom assured me it was fake. Just to be sure, Kon and I worked to pull it down for a more thorough inspection. Turns out Mom was right, it is fake and there was nothing more than traces of scent from our cousin Tinkerbelle the cat since it came from Grandma Christy's house. You can never be too sure though. Hope your holiday preparations are also going well!
