When I got home Harry and I went out to buy our Christmas Tree. I always get our tree from Home Depot. Not only are they rather inexpensive but they have nice trees. This year we had a little trouble finding the right tree. Normally we take a look at two or three threes but this year we kept unraveling tree after tree with no luck. This year trees seem to be fuller on top then in the past. I wanted a triangle shaped tree and was determined to find one. So Harry and I looked at about ten trees before we gave up and went with a tree that we both liked but it wasn't perfect.
Once I got it home we put it up and it started to fill out more, as the hours passed the tree branches started to fall and it became more triangle. After several hours of letting it blossom open I started to decorate as Harry slept on the couch. I did lights first; I put over 400 lights on it. Just when I finished the lights Harry woke up and helped me decorate the tree. I can normally use all of our decorations but this year I had leftovers.. not sure if the tree is smaller or less round.. all I know if we put up a lot of stuff and couldn't fit anymore. I think in the end it turned our great and this is one of my favorite trees the past few years.
I also went and wrapped presets that we had already bought and placed them under the tree.
