Last Friday we put up our Christmas tree. We have had our Christmas tree for 9 Christmases now, and the pre-lit lights weren't really working. So - we got out more lights, strung them over the nonworking lights, decorated and called it good. The kids had a blast decorating the tree!
Our living room has a 12 foot ceiling, and I have always wanted a tall Christmas tree...and had found one that I really liked at store just blocks from our house.
Fast forward to Sunday, after deciding our tree was not looking so good, Justin went and bought the new tree, set it up, we un-decorated the first one and redecorated the new one!
I LOVE our new 9 foot tree! Of course it looks bigger in our house than it did in the store, but it looks great!! The kids thought it was funny that we had to un-decorate and redecorate.
The even better part -- the tree was on sale when we bought it, but it was still spendy. It was even more on sale for Black Friday, so Justin took the receipt in, and they refunded us $75. :)
