So, the outside of our house looked ready for Christmas…
and our mailbox looked super holiday-ish (Thank You Susan!!)…
so we had to get the inside of the house to match! Getting it done this year looked a little different than previous years but that’s ok. I went and picked out the tree by myself and, since we’ve taken a picture every other year when we got our tree (2013 and 2012 and 2011 and 2010), I had to take one of myself at the tree lot with our tree of choice! ha!
We actually had it delivered and then it was raining when it came so it got to sit outside for another day to dry. We finally got it inside and then I got sick. Then Robert went out of town. Then the boys and I were determined to decorate the tree on Wednesday only to get all the lights out and discover that half of them didn’t work. Well, after an emergency trip to Little Hardware at 5pm that night to get more lights we were finally in business! We fought through all the obstacles and ended up with the best tree yet! 🙂
Little Hardware had these neat, big, colored lights and Maxwell thought they were FANTASTIC because they had some orange lights on them. While I usually prefer all white lights on my tree, I have to admit that these colored lights are really fun and add just the right touch to our tree this year!
My “helpers” were a really big “help” and super proud of the tree when it was finished! They even wanted to go put on their Christmas tree pjs and take another picture!
Ok, Santa…we’re ready!
Have a great weekend!
