Well, we managed to get our tree all set up with some lights (both white lights and some giant colorful bulbs as well). Monkey has been rather underwhelmed with the entire decorating experience, although he has seen fit to remove a couple of stray plastic ornaments that didn't suit his aesthetic.
But, he LOVES taking a nap on the extra strand of lights...they are just warm enough to make a nice cozy electric cat nest. As long as he doesn't try to eat the lights we'll be good.
FYI, I'll be out of town (and away from blogging) for the next couple of days for a business trip. Wish me luck - it'll be COLD - far colder than my wardrobe will reasonably permit. Brrr.
