Tree Time

We picked up our tree (from our neighbor's house who owns a Christmas tree lot in the NC mountains) on Wednesday. And, finally, on Sunday morning the lights were on it and we were ready to decorate. Although, I must say there is a single strand of lights that are out and we couldn't fix it. And, guess what? We didn't really care...no big deal. 

On that subject, I scan the blogs and see hundreds of beautiful Christmas trees that are perfect. Just beautiful and perfect! But, I don't really subscribe to the perfect Christmas tree idea. As a matter of fact, our tree is in the tree stand and leaning heavily to the right...a la the Leaning Tower of Pisa! We don't have a tree that is all matchy matchy. We have a tree decorated with ornaments that are special to our family and many are homemade. I love it. We all do. 

So, here are the tree decorating photos!
