My family put up the Christmas tree last night, and even though this is my second Christmas, all the decorating was new to me. Last year they were traveling a lot and I was only four months old so we didn’t have a Christmas tree. I guess they didn’t trust me, and wanted to keep me safe.
So as the decorations came out of the million boxes Mom keeps, I decided to take a nap upstairs. The teenager put on Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas songs, and she worked on the tree and Mom put up all these “things” all over the house.
A few hours later, all the commotion was over, and I went in the living room to check on things. Burbank had taken her spot under the tree, and suddenly I get swooped up into the teen’s arms. She wanted to show me something I missed earlier, but at the same time a loud clinging and clanging noise filled my little furry ears. It was way too loud for me and things under the tree were moving, and it certainly wasn’t Burbank! I jumped out of her arms and up in the air, and flew as fast as I could to get out of there. Yes, I flew, and when I landed I was in another room, so as I’m running up the stairs I hear the teen and Mom laughing so hard that the teen got the hiccups, and Dad came in to see what happened. They told him, and then I learned that the reason they were laughing hysterically is that when I was in mid air, I was imitating a spider called “daddy long legs”. My legs were all outstretched in different directions and curled at the same time. Okay I know this looses something in the translation, but Mom said it was “priceless”. She also suggested to the teenager to “never put the train on again when Dylan is in the room”!!!
