For those of you just tuning in, here is my Christmas tree, ahem my family's Christmas tree. It did not start looking this way it was a mess when I took it out of storage. It looked like this.










I was a little upset that it had this many bulbs out after just two years. I asked ya'll for any suggestions on how to fix it and after many attempts to fix the bad lights. I just decided to strip out all the bad lights and replace them with new ones.

In this picture this whole section of the tree was 'dark'.












Here is a picture of the old lights that had to be removed to make room for the new lights.









Here is a picture of the finished product. My son Grant is smiling because daddy fixed the Christmas tree. Thanks for all of the help and suggestions to get my family's Christmas back on track.
