In the last post, I mentioned purchasing the Brobdingnagian (our favorite new word meaning REALLY, REALLY BIG) Christmas tree. Well, we had a wonderful time decorating it, starting with Michael on the 10 foot ladder…..
He continued adding lights and ornaments on the top 1/3 of the tree and then I took over for the bottom 2/3rds……
I found that since I had to climb a stepstool to get to parts of the tree, I would load up with every ornament that I could carry!!
It turned out wonderfully….
After finishing the tree, I moved outside and added some lights to our deck…..
It was such fun to have the new house to decorate and was so nice to not have to climb rickety stairs up into the attic to get to the decorations!!!! I especially enjoyed decorating the mantles and it was fun to have TWO of them to decorate….
I have never had a place to properly display the stockings so this has been a real treat…..
Here are a few more of my favorite spots in the house…..
It is so nice to have the decorating done….now if I can just get started on my shopping!!!!
