The Decorations Went up, Then Down

Mimi's Decorated Tree

This Christmas tree finally made it up! Christmas Eve was the final day to get it up and that is just what I did on a cold rainy afternoon.

I forgot how long it took to shape the tree. It had been crammed in a bag for at least two years. I had to put my headlamp on to do the job right. Everyone should have a headlamp, but that is a whole nother story in itself, back to the tree.

The biggest problem putting up the tree was space. Since my husband and I consolidated our two houses there isn’t much space left. We have two sheds with furniture and decorations that will not fit so where in the world is tree going. I had forgotten that I purchased a slim tree so that helped tremendously.

My stepson requested a big tree this year and not one of those table-top versions. I put up multiple small trees two years ago. I thought more was better. Guess not.

Last year I didn’t want to fool with any of it so I went to Wally World for a three foot tree and a few ornaments. I wound up with a purple tree and silver butterflies to decorate it. That didn’t go over so great with the family. I made up for it this year though. I put lights and decorations on the porch and front walk area.
