I started putting up decorations tonight! No clue why. Just felt like it. I put up our new tree, but haven't lit or trimmed it. I'm used to our old seven foot tree we've had for about 12 years or so. Last year after Christmas, I found a really marked down nine foot tree that is pre-lit. I figured since we have vaulted ceilings, a bigger tree would work well.
Two extra feet makes a LOT of difference!!!! I also didn't plan for the extra WIDTH. It takes up a lot more room so I set it up in the formal living room. I guess that lets me open the blinds and have it show outside.
So, Merry Christmas, I guess! :)
