lucky is our compact lap cat; easily fitting snuggled into only the bend of my arm, she exerts her ragdoll-cat like flexible lil kitty heater goodness all in one. not only does she warm my lap, but moreso, my heart !

our caroling santa cat

this is our singing holiday cat; push his tummy and he ' meow, meow, meooows ' to the theme of a christmas carol. (you will need to turn your volume on to hear him).

here, Pengy investigates ...

and here, well, she rivals it, putting the bitey on the booty...

finally, after inability to get it to shut up, Pengy says 'ah, enough with you' .

And so, caroling kitty is defeated & put back in his safe spot.
The cats are not too amused that something is singing in their house without moving its mouth; yet mom brings him out every year because she thinks our reaction to this thing is SO cute. Yeh, for about 5 seconds maybe, then we cats are just annoyed (secretly we like that it cannot move so we always get the upper paw).

: )

(please ignore anonymous optional video clips at videos end; i do not know where they come from? & noticed a bad word on one - my first time using photobucket for video uploading; so not too familiar with its operation).

so, mom worked all nite & has almost completed our Charles B. tree:
before lights,

cuddled up kitty,

that classic single red bulb.

two things left to complete the tree:

three wood Peanuts ornaments we won via ebay; waiting to arrive via mailbox. okay so those were not on the original CB tree, but it is 2010 and this is our version; and you gotta have ole Charlie somewhere on the tree afterall. and we are adding one final lit branch.

welcome to our home Sir Brown Christmas tree;
our kitties already Love you!

making our tree & crib climbing...

today we began creating our first very own Charlie Brown cmas tree:

pengy scoping out the goods; we used a previously cut log & branch from our backyard,

before photo; our tree stump and branch,

getting down to business; daddy creating branch inset w/ his drill,

side view,

and, top view,
and, UM, kitty view,
kitty approved and climbable might i add.
i'm thinking by tomorrow our blog will post the finished product; lights, the single red bulb, and some extra Christmas Kraft warmness taking it back to the classic Charlie Brown winter scene.

this tree idea came upon me one nite and I could not shake it... it was the tree we were to create; our own warm tradition, 2010. i knew with my husband we could make it happen. thanks babe!

we were blessed to come across a baby crib. it has been in my husbands family for generations. he slept within this very crib. today we brought it inside. we love how it exerts the way cribs should feel; warm, cozy, beautiful simple structure. in the near future we will be painting it a warm color.
our cat, pengy, found it very interesting. used it as her ladder and climbed right up to inspect. once the mattress is in, i foresee this crib being the cozy bed for 4 cats before their brother comes home.

cmas 2009 flash-back

our june-bug nuggled within her cmas bag-bed.

we are making our own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree this year ... with the single bulb hanging from the arching branch; hm, invisioning our 4 cats competing for the score of that single bulb from branch to floor to toy.

hoping to capture some great photos of our crew, cmas 2010 !

' (sigh) we approve & snowman-dude can stay but just for the Holidays & IF we get to chew the twig arms, okay ' .
