We usually drive 2 hours away and cut down our own tree. I am always a bit sad by the cutting down. So this year, no cutting just sheer glee and happiness finding our big boy freddie the fraser fir.
Freddie is the largest Christmas tree I have ever had the delight of having to decorate. Yippee.
Okay, so the lights proved challenging (which is why you have no lighted tree photos yet) My darling hubby headed off to Target and scored some (long story but, a good one here) I have offically put 1050 lights on Freddie and he needs more. His bottom branches are cold and bare of lights.
Off to Target I go. Fingers crossed there will be a couple of boxes for me to grab.
Later tonight we will have lights and hopefully ornaments.
Todays tip is this.
• BUY ALL THE LIGHTS YOU CAN. You can always return them later.
Happy Tree trimming to everyone. I just love Christmas lights.
