Christmas in the Jungle

For a second year now, we've used an artificial tree that starts as a decoration for David's annual warehouse sale before coming home to finish out the holiday season. Also for the second year, it's come already covered with Paca Monkeys. Of course, monkeys are always in danger when they enter a house that's inhabited by a Cougar, and scenes of carnage like these have become fairly common over the past few days.



(FYI: Those are two different monkeys with matching outfits. He likes pulling them down in matched pairs, it seems.)

Like any monkeys, the Paca Monkeys have responded by trying to relocate to the safest part of the tree possible. Things are starting to get a bit crowded, though.

They're actually handmade for David in Peru by a Christian women's cooperative, which provides poor women with much-needed employment and income. The body's are crocheted in Alpaca with a Twist's Baby Twist yarn (Jennifer's a friend and David helped develop the yarn) and their clothes are from yarn ends left over from David's garment production.
