Deck the Halls [Pict #2 and 3]

Oops, forgot to add my 'advent' picture for December 2nd. So Here's two to go along with my theme.
We decorated! Okay, well we'd done a lot of it previously. But we just put the tree up on Saturday! Okay, I put the tree up. I went out to buy it by myself. Had to go to a few different places, b/c we wanted just a baby-tree to go in our front window. [Picture to come soon.]

Finally found one. Do you know how expensive trees are?!?! I was shocked to see how many were $40 or more! Our little one was only $12, which I was happier with.

Erica went with me to the last tree farm. It was so cold, poor girl. We didn't have her gloves, so she wore mine. Quite a funny site. She wanted a 'horsey ride,' aka a hay ride so we did that. It was fun, but cold.

It took me quite awhile to set the thing up. I had to cut off a few lower branches, and Andrew's shears [is that what they're called?] aren't really very sharp, so it took a long time. Out in the cold. Brrr.

Finally got it standing up straight, then had to find the lights! And to my dismay, they weren't all working! I have one strand that only one-half of it works, so that's what I used on the tree. The unlit half is just on the floor. [Is that a fire-hazard? They're not lit up.]

Even if they aren't working, the lights are a fire hazard. Don't ask why I know that, I just do.

Yay for Christmas decorating!
