But it's perfect, and cute!
I went to Target the next day and picked up some ornaments; I had sooooo much fun decorating!! Aaaand, needless to say, I may have gone a lil' overboard on the lights....eee!
Journey to the tree..... :-)
Lil' bright, maybe??
Ahhh, the perfect tree!
This was our perfect tree (the one in front)....
Matt's mom gave this to me a few years ago, and I was so excited to be able to hang it up this year! I love my little ballerina, she spins when you pull a string and the ornament sings different Nutcracker songs.
Back up people.
Watch out for the pros....we womenfolk stayed out of this, let them handle that one.
The thing you need to understand about my family...putting up a tree is no small task. It takes precision, perserverance, and lots and LOTS of time.
My dad has always been a little bit "over-the-top" with the stringing of lights. He must, and I do mean MUST, go in and out of E-VER-Y branch. No joke.
When we got home, I immediately HAD to decorate the tree, nevermind that it was almost midnight...well, okay it wasn't midnight when we got home, but since we had to tear the house apart to make room, ahem, it got late very fast.
There may or may not have been a bookcase that was broken in the process of arranging this tree....erm, yah. Chevy Chase ain't got nothin' on us.
But, it all came together in the end (not to toot my own horn but...toot!!). I think the tree is sooo pretty!
This is me having fun with camera settings...thank you, Pinterest, thank you.
And thank YOU to Target for our cute ornaments!
More camera setting experimentation... :-)
