living room tree

Last evening I put lights on the middle tier of the 9′ living room tree and today I spent three hours finishing the lights on the bottom tier. Looks great! And it should. I used twelve boxes of commercial grade, 200 count light strings. This tree sits on a revolving stand and makes a beautiful display. The cats came to watch. I guess they got bored. Taking naps was more their speed. Buttercup settled down near the fireplace and Happy took up residence under my chair.

Happy took a long nap next to the warm glow of this light string.

My sister Genny is coming this evening to spend the weekend helping with the Christmas decorating. DH couldn’t find fresh cranberries in town last night, so Genny is bringing eight bags. It takes six to make enough popcorn and cranberry strings for the living room tree.

I’m moving on to the office tree. It needs one light string replaced and then we can finish decorating it. More later. 🙂 ~~Rhonda
