The Thursday after Thanksgiving I went into work and they told me to go home...which is great, and not with a pink slip...which was even better! We had too many people scheduled so I got to have the day off. CHRISTMAS DECORATING TIME! So Dan and I did some Christmas Tree shopping. I am all about the fake Christmas Trees! We found a pretty good deal at Lowe's for a kind of skinny tree which of course we ended up getting even though we had to go to Home Depot, Michaels and Hobby Lobby first to make sure we were getting the best deal!
AND...it is pre-lit!
Although we got new ornaments for the tree - we did keep Dan's snowflake/star tree topper. I like it! I am excited to start collecting/making cool ornaments over the years so we have a better assortment - We helped my Grandma decorate her tree this year and she has 2 or 3 ornaments from her first tree with my Grandpa many many years ago!! I guess we will have to save some of the Christmas Tree balls I bought at Michaels :)
Notice Dan's beaded necklace :) Those were the leftovers - you don't need that many decorations on our little baby tree!
The tree looks a little puny there, but it fits quite nicely in our family room.
