Decorating the Christmas tree. Yippee!
Sorry, everyone but I have to interrupt the tree decorating post for a special announcement.
I met SANTA CLAUSE!
Remember I told you about Henderson Management donating a bunch of goodies for our Christmas packages? Well, they also host a Christmas party for children of their tenants every year and I attended. My mom works for them. Anyway, she asked if I could get my picture taken with Santa and they said yes! I was SOOOO happy.
Okay, back to decorating the Christmas tree.
Like everyone else, I started with the lights. Obviously, that didn’t go so well. I was trying to untangle them when someone plugged them in. It startled me and I ended up in the middle of the tangled string of lights. It took quite a while for mom to get me untangled. By the time they freed me and we got the lights on the tree, I needed a break. So, mom fixed me some hot cocoa.
Mom’s the best. She even gave me extra marshmallows! Can you read the mug? We borrowed it from Sandra. It’s her favorite mug. My mom gave it to her as a gift one year because Sandra always says her characters talk to her until she writes their stories down. I like to use it once in a while in the hopes that characters will start talking to me and I can become a writer like Sandra.
Okay, if you have been following the countdown, you know I really decorated my tree earlier. You remember the picture with me hanging the shoes from the Mastering the Brides book on the tree? No? Here’s a picture of me with the shoes and other ornaments I wanted to put on the tree. It took some time to talk mom into putting shoes on the tree, but I pleaded my case (and maybe whined just a little) and she gave in.
Of course, she wasn’t thrilled when I climbed up the tree to hang them. She told me I was supposed to use a step stool or some such thing. Personally, I thought climbing was fine, but then, I AM a monkey. 🙂
Next post I’ll show you some of the Christmas treats I made.
So, do you have characters talking inside your head? Or, have you silenced them by writing their stories? Any Christmas stories?

Let’s give a warm welcome to our guest for July 7th thru 13th, from Her Master Detective, and the youngest of the Masters triplets, Detective Tres Masters. He has taken a week off from the Braedon, Colorado Police Department to visit with you.
Hello everyone, it’s a pleasure to be here. Dos told me about a wonderful woman from the UK who stopped by to visit with him. I hope she’ll say hi to me as well. I also hope a few others of you will stop by too, or it’s going to be a long week. I have to admit, I’m more worried about being cross-examined by readers than my brother, Ace. Maybe if I give you a little of my story, I’ll relax. I was involved in giving testimony in a particularly nasty court case when my life took a left turn. While I was on break from the trial, I ran into my brother Dos who was visiting. That’s when I met Izzy. After that chance meeting, my life turned into a nightmare where I found myself entangled in a web of lies and desire I never would have expected. I would like to ask your opinion about one thing. When we met, Izzy told me ‘wrinkles’ at the corner of my eyes were laugh-lines and she liked them, so I laugh a lot now. What do you think of my laugh-lines?
We have the next seven days, until July 13th to visit. I eagerly await hearing from you and can’t wait to see what questions you have for me. Being the youngest triplet, I’ve always been outgoing; let’s face it being third you have to try harder to get attention.
After that, you’ll be talking to our BIG brother, Ace. I will do my best to answer your questions, but don’t be surprised if I slip into interrogation or cross-examination mode. You can post your questions or comments on Sandra’s Facebook (Sandra S Kerns Facebook), Twitter (@SandraSKerns #MastersMen), or here on her blog sandrakerns.com.
