Getting Ready for New Years Eve!

Most of you may not know this but New Years Eve is a monkeys favorite holiday. It takes several days to accurately prepare for the evening festivities. This year we are taking it to the extreme monkey style!

Preparation 1: Don a wide variety of socks. This is like a spa treatment to a monkey! We are getting relaxed and ready for Thursday night.
Preparation 2: Find some funny ears. These were just lying around in Jen's work bag. I hear they used to be 'stress balls' for her students. I just cut into them and put them on my ears. I don't know what she is thinking, I feel stress free!

Preparation 4: (yes this is out of order on purpose) Mosey up in the comfy chair wearing a pair of unders to keep us warm.
Preparation 3: Put our own unders on and get ready to party like a rock star.

If things go well, we may be wearing those unders on our heads. Let the festivities begin!!!!


Decorating the tree!

Well, Guillermo and I spent Sunday trying to decorate the tree Brian put up this week.
Afterall, how does that holiday classic go?

"Oh Christmas tree,
Oh Christmas tree,
ummmm...won't...you be...my neighbor??"

That doesn't sound quite right. Anyhow, we thought we could best help by unloading the boxes filled with decorations, so we put on our festive holiday socks and dug in!

Blech, kinda dusty in there...maybe we'll just work on untangling the lights!

Oh man, these things suck!
BRIAN!!! Help a minkee out, please...

Well, at least G-mo made the best of it!

Hey, look what I founds...little B & G-sized gift bags! Or as we call them: "toys"


We finally got to the globes, giving them a good ole monkey-shine. Took a little longer than usual, you know how G-mo is: he kept calling them "magic shiny-balls" and was quite enamored with them...the red ones in particular.

Despite his quirks, I have to give credit where credit it due: this was an AWESOME idea, Guillermo!

Oh well, in the end, I guess Jen and Brian decorated all of the tree, but I am pretty sure we had more fun!

OH, and of course, we put the BEST decorations on last...

PS..and if you look closely, you can see our enormous "pine doodles" : ()


Deathstorm 2009

Today we are experiencing Deathstorm 2009. So far there has been rain, sleet, a bit of hail and snow. We even have a blizzard watch until tomorrow evening.

So, what is a minkee to do?!? We obviously can't play outside and it seems that with this weather all we want to do is snuggle!

We are breaking out the raspberry cocoa and getting refamiliar with our favorite show Lost. This is going to be some night! Get ready for thunder snow and minkee hoots!


New Yarn!

This year for Christmas, Jen is hand making all of her gifts. Some jewelry, some cooking and some serious knitting. So what do you need for serious knitting???? Serious yarn! This package came in the mail the other day.

Being the curious minkee that I am I had to check and see what was inside.

OMG!!!! Look at all this yarn!!!!! Jen got it at yarncountry.com and got quite the bargin! So what better to do than put this stuff on our heads!

100% Wool feels nice. I think we need to be remade out of this stuff. So soft and luxurious.

Its good to be a minkee!
