Yes, you read that correctly. 2 Christmas Trees in 1 year. I love decorating our tree (lights I can live without) but decorating and pulling out the old ornaments, I love. However, when you do it twice in one year. It is not as much fun.
Saturday after Thanksgiving we went and picked out our annual tree. It is yearly tradition and one I cherish.
Finding the right tree can be a tough job.
Then on Sunday we started putting on the lights. I unfortunately hurt my neck so I was useless in helping but my men were up for the job.
It wasn’t until the next weekend and several chiropractic appointments that I put on the decorations. As I was adding the decorations I noticed the tree was VERY fragile but I thought it was in my head.
Then after another week our tree was looking SAD. Needles falling EVERYWHERE, the silverside of the branches were facing up. It was just bad.
Collins took off all the ornaments (only the half I put up) and returned it to the place we bought the tree. (thank goodness they exchanged it for free)
The ornaments and the pile of needles it left behind.
Our new tree!! Looks much perkier!
Then we had a fiasco with the lights. Mini lights are HARD to come by. Buy them now while they are still around.
