Normally, I set up the tree and decorate the house all at once, sometime in one day, sometimes in two.
But this year, I thought I'd spread it out a little more.
So, on Friday, the kids and I put up the tree and put on the lights. A strand was out, so we put up the remaining lights that worked. And ended there with a little photo shoot:
Friday night, we watched Shrek the Third by our tree lit with 2/3 of its lights.
On Saturday, I added another string of lights. And Austin added four balls.
On Sunday, I made some new ornaments and added them to the tree:
(I still have a few more to finish up.)
But I'm enjoying having a more relaxed attitude about it this year, that's for sure.
