Saying farewell to the holidays

Yeah, it's closer to the end of January than the beginning. And?

Our decorations take up little weight and space.
This is everything but our ornament boxes
which never saw the light of day this Christmas.

The tree was boxed up a couple days after Christmas, the cats enjoyed it far too much and we couldn't risk leaving it up while we went on our trip after New Year's Eve.  And why I thought a tree with individual branches instead of 2 big parts was a good idea anyway, I'll never know.  Every morning we found gaps where cats had climbed up and pulled out branches, which is why there are no ornament boxes in the above photo.  The lights weren't safe.  I think 1/2 a string might still work, if they were ever left alone long enough to remain plugged into the transformer. Not even candy canes or Christmas cards were safe as decoration.  It all ended up on the floor every, single, morning.

What can you really expect though from a Minesoda Christmas tree made in Thailand, and 3 fascinated kittens?
