Isn't the grey kidpen just a delightful dose of holiday cheer? Yes, I think so too. Really classes up the hastily lit and scantily decorated tree. I was dreaming of the year when I could put up a tree without a gated perimeter. It was then I realized the barrier served more than one purpose. Sure, it kept Little Man and his tiny prying hands away. But it also kept the presents a good distance from the dog who likes to pee on everything. So I may be stuck with the pen. Around my tree. No matter how gorgeously I may decorate it. The beauty will always be marred by the faux chain link. Awesome.
And speaking of trees; here's a real TREE!
Ornaments the size of your head. That's the way to go!
