Trim Up the Tree

 

It’s that time of year again! The tree is up, the lights are on, and all that remains it the outdoor decorations. We changed where we put the tree this year due to some new living room furniture, but I like it, and it’s nice to do something different. You can see how we decorated last year on this post.

This is our 7th Christmas with this particular tree, and the poor thing is on it’s last leg. Half the lights don’t work so I had to add a few strands! However, I can’t complain because if you average out how much we spent on the tree over the seven years we have used it, we have paid $28.5 a year for a pre lit 7.5 foot tree. Not too shabby.

I started the fire, turned on the Christmas music, and we were ready to decorate.

The dogs were less than thrilled with all the commotion. They get upset when we move around too much and bring big boxes into the living room. Such spoiled princesses.

Every year when I pull this stuffed Santa out of a box Bella goes nuts. She loves that thing.

All done, except for some ribbon I need to buy.

Also need some lights for the garland on the fireplace.

Now all I have to do is the outdoor decorations. What a fun day! Hope you are all enjoyed your weekend.

QOTD: Is your tree up yet? Fake or real tree.
