"Waiting for Presents"

Before we moved to our cozy little strawbale house (and before the boys), we lived in a bigger ranch house with a garage, and more than one room, and well, we also had a full-size plastic Christmas Tree.

"Mom's Tree"

This year our big tree is sparkling at my Mom's house in town
where all the neighborhood kitties can enjoy it.

"Kitty Christmas Tree"

We've thought about taking the boys to their grand-kitty's
house for the holidays
, but they may not appreciate the car
ride (they have become real home-bodies like us).

We do have a little tree that stays up all year.

In the attic we store a big box of Christmas goodies,
including a few ornaments that we unpack and
arrange in glass bowls for everyone to enjoy.

Maybe this will turn into a kitty princess with a kiss.


Uschi found a mouse ornament that needed a bath.

When we took out the Christmas boxes from the attic,
we realized that we had a lot of ornaments of animals,
but no kitties! It was time to make T, U, and V ornaments.

Daniel Smith paint company posted free instructions
for making watercolor ornaments, so now each
of the boys has their own to play with.

Vladi has his own little Christmas tree.

Its fun to nibble and kick.

It would be interesting to see what the boys
would do with a big tree,


Well, maybe we better stick with the little tree for now.

You are SOOOO correct about not having a "real" tree. Everytime I get one, one of my cats climbs it and it falls over in a horrible mess. It makes sense b/c they climb trees outside. Duh!

Now, it's fake trees and plastic ornaments for our house. During Christmas, at night, I can hear the tree shaking and the plastic balls being ripped off and batted around and every morning I have to put the balls back on and straighten out the skirt around the tree. It's gold lame' and one of my cats has the taste of Liberace, so he loves to get under it and roll around. Kittenmom

That's a really good idea to have plastic ornaments, we're going to have to give that a try.
