This year we decided to use the pre-lit tree that we bought after Christmas last year, it's smaller than the other one but hey, it came with lights on it! And I can only decorate 3/4 of the tree because of the cat and I only put bows and bells on it. It's pathetic looking, lmao, it looks like a Charlie Brown tree. The cat has decided that like everything else in the house, the tree is his aswell and he can do as he pleases to it, like climb it and run circles in the middle of it!! lol My cat is insane!
