The Lights

We took down our Christmas trees yesterday - both of them.  The one in the family room and the one in the kitchen with all of the Airedale ornies on it.  We are going to miss the lights the most.

This year for the very first time, mom put battery operated candles in our windows.  They got taken out of the windows yesterday too and before she put them away she had this neat idea to see how they'd look lighting up our staircase.

 And lit~
She said she'd love to leave them there for a few days but she figures that we'd knock them over coming down the stairs in the morning.

So until next time..........

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly


  1. Ah, I do likes da candles on da staircase very much.
    My mum would be da one to trip instead of us...hehehehe.


  2. They do look lovely, but I fear their days are numbered with two terriers dashing about.


  3. It does make the place look bare when you put away all the Christmas stuff...but the good thing is it will be back next year

  4. Our decs are all put away too. Alas Christmas has left the house. Until next year my friends. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Sorry we haven't been around! We took down all of our decorations too and it feels very bare in here!

    Oink oink,

  6. That does look really nice...but I think some of my "younger" packmates would eat them! :)

  7. The house always looks naked when we take down the decorations. I think ours will stay up for a few more days.

  10. Have I told you Sue, I have night blindness???? I couldn't go up or down those stairs without light!!!
    I like the candles so would the kittens!!!!! LOL They would carry them around!!!

  11. OH HOW PRETTY your staircase looks... BUTT we guess your mom is right about them not being able to live there fur long. NICE to see though.

  12. Those lights look beautiful on your stairs! Mom took our lights down, too, and it seems a bit drab now. I love the thought of those candles - maybe our mom will consider putting ours somewhere!
    Play bows,

  13. It is sad to see all the lights being put away.

  14. Oh, I love em' there!! I can't believe you two haven't grabbed them and run around the house with them!! Oh, or is that just ME?
    Yeah, no one ever said I was a good Airedale!

  15. The lights are lovely on the stairs!

    We love them!

    Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and very best wishes for 2013!

  16. What a neat idea...but, yu right, lite may get kicked over...pretty lites...Miss Kitty


  17. They look so pretty on your stairs... but they would look so much better in your mouths whilst youse were running around with them BOL
    Love Milo :)

  18. Umm...yes mom is probably right. Although those candles are ' gentle' dales might make a mess. BOL!


  19. SO pretty, butt they wouldn't last here, either. Not us - MOM!!

  20. Great look but Puddles is khorrekht!

    Our humans would be too khlumsy to navigate 'em!


  21. Looks beautiful!!!! But Labrador tails would knock them all down :)

    We ended up not decorating *at all* this year because we were too sick to do anything Christmas-related. We have your wonderful little mitten waiting to go on a Christmas tree... but it won't be until next year. So, I took a photo of Shyla with it, and I'll be posting it sometime soon! We do love it - it's just that our Christmas got derailed by flu and pneumonia...

  22. We haven't taken down our tree yet. My assistant likes to leave it up as long as possible. It's kind of sad when it is time to put everything away for the year.

  23. We still have our trees up, Mommy is usually pretty slow about that, cause it makes her sad. The candles are so pretty on the steps.

  24. Hi guys!!
    You guys are so lucky- you had a white Christmas (and then some), some super presents from your exchange furbuddies, and pretty tree with Airedale ornaments!!
    We hope your new year is off to a great start. Sorry to read about Dauby :(
    Happy 2013!

  25. Oh those are pretty going up the stairs :) And yap, good thinkin on Mom's part to take em down before you two came rompin through for breakfast ;)

    Waggin at ya,

  26. I guess you are traditionalists, like we are, taking down the decorations on the 6th. However, I must admit we got halfway through taking down the decorations and then haven't finished. Better get on to it!

  27. It IS sad taking down the decorations!! Sad that another Christmas has come and gone...where does the time go?? Love the candles on the stairs, but you are right...they would probably get knocked over in the morning! BOL! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  28. So pretty! What a brilliant idea to put candles on the staircase.

  29. They do look waaay cool up those stairs of yours!

    Tell me, what do you think of coming and going up and down those stairs without any runners? It scares me, to tell you the truth. I slid and fell down once. Haven't done it since. Y'all are cooler than I am! Maybe it's that your feet are bigger than mine!!! LOL.

    Aroo, Stuart

  30. Oh we love candles, they wouldn't last long on our stairs. Have a great Tuesday xx00xx

  31. Oh, we think that's a great idea-looks so classy! We hope you give them a try...

  32. Oh, those candles DO look pretty on your stairs. But they would never work in our house. If we didn't knock 'em over, mom would trip on them for sure. She is not Most Graceful, you know.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  33. We love the candles too,, but your right- they might get knocked over...course- I might eat them.

  34. They do look cool on the stairs like that. Addi would probably try to eat it!!! BOL

  35. We would all have to investigate those candles and probably rearrange them a few times.

  36. We are busily catching up, and see that y'all have been quite busy while we were taking care of the humans and their frailties. We love the mallets, and know that the students will too! We were sorry to learn about Dauby, she was one of our favorite parts of your estate, and we know she will be much missed. Oh, and we are sooooooo jealous of your snow.

  37. Those candles look great on the stairs. But they would stay there forever because I (Hershey) don't go up stairs very well. I am a little clumsy.

    Kaci used to go up and down stairs until she saw that I wouldn't. Now she won't go up and down the stairs.

    Love -

    Hershey and Kaci
