Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday. You can ask anyone that know me! I love it. The day after Thanksgiving is mine for decorating and my entire family knows that on Friday our home is transformed. I have spent years gathering and working to decorate each room. It is a work in progress but I love it. Kent would like it more if there were less plastic tubs under the house to drag out. However, this year I gave up the icicle lights and he was thrilled... He hates the upkeep of those lights. Last year Kenna and Chip cut us a green tree on their trip to the mountains, it was just as tall as this one, and Kent left before I decorated it. I spent two days putting on the lights and just when I reached the end of and began to plug the lights in I had put them on backwards and had no way of plugging them in. I was sick and cranky! I had to take them off and re-do the entire tree. This year Kent was home to help. We started at 5:30 and finished around 8:40. Putting the lights on a tree this tall takes up the most time. I had a new idea this year and tried it on the tree. The tree turned out beautiful! I love it.
