Santa's Little...Helper?

Well, we set up the Christmas tree this weekend — I really don't know how we ever managed on our own before Ruby came along! Her standards are exacting:

• Confirm varietal excellence

• Supervise installation crew

• Approve materials

• Verify stand is to code

• Inspect trunk positioning for precise verticality

• Micromanage clean-up

Well done, Ruby! In fact, she did such a great job, we let her choose the first ornament to hang on the tree. She snooted around in the box and came up with this one. We thought it was a very good choice.

Ha! This made me laugh :)
What a cutie! Hopefully Ruby wasn't too strict with you? You know how these supervisors are.....

We actually had snow flurries here in Texas this am. Of course it turned to rain really fast but it was beautiful while it lasted..

Now that is the best kind of helper to have. She is a good decorator.

That is so cute! We don't have a Christmas tree but if we did I think I would love trying to steal the decorations off it!

You are a girl after my own heart Ruby! Nice job on the tree, and being so helpful to the humans!

She is a good helper.

Toby and Jazz always "help" mum and dad by digging up the vegie garden or making a hole in the lawn.

But when dad needs to dig a hole to plant a tree, their help is no where to be seen!
