Generally I put up decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving, but DH had an unexpected Sunday off last weekend so we struck while the iron was hot & put the tree up then.
This is the first year since Turtle was born that we've had a tree. I decided to go with an artificial tree -that's what we had when I was growing up & I actually do have a place to store it when the holidays are over. I must say, I LOVE having a pre-lit tree! Maybe some year we will do a real tree, but this will do for now.
|Oh look -bubble wrap!|
|Doesn't look like much|
|You mean it lights up?|
|We're still working on the Vanna skills|
|Adding ornaments was lots of fun!|
|DH thought that not ALL the ornaments should be hung on the bottom 2 feet of the tree|
|The final product|
Just a bit of decorating now to finish, but the rest of the holiday assignments left to do are
- Finish gift shopping
- Mailing domestic gifts
- Charge batteries for the camera
How are your holiday preparations going?
