It's a tradition. And, apparently, one Biscuit looks forward to doing!
It was Oscar's first year "decorating." In hindsight we should have saved his first year for next year.
Whereas Biscuit didn't figure out for years that the candy was edible, Oscar was a bit quicker to cotton on to that idea. He only seemed to like the Skittles but licked several gumdrops, peppermints and a bottle cap. He's quick this one. Then he was up on the table and in pursuit of more.
He did manage to help squeeze some frosting and stick on some candies so it wasn't a total waste. And I got to finish his masterpiece for him. Which was fun.
Meanwhile Biscuit has become quite independent at house decorating.
I'll have to post photos of the finished masterpieces another day. This year they're living on the mantle, high above inquisitive fingers.
Here's to another year of decorating. And to finally, finally remembering to use the gingerbread house mold I've owned for years but always unpacked too late in the season.
