I am so late with my Christmas decorating, this year. I guess it happens, when you haven't been feeling up to par. lately. However, I was determined to at least get the tree up, as my niece is coming with her two children, and we haven't seen them in 8 years. Thank goodness my hubby bought a pre-lit tree last year - I love it, although I need a step ladder to reach the top of this 7 1/2 foot baby. It has 1000 beautiful lights on it and I didn't have to string one :o)!!! I actually need a huge tree to hold our 200 plus ornaments. So, for the past two days, I have been arranging and re-arranging our tree, until finally it's just right. The best part - no more arguing about whether white lights or coloured lights are best. The tree comes with a remote and you can have either white lights OR coloured lights OR BOTH ~ YIPPEE!! (I just have to hide the remote LOL! I'd love to hear what your family likes - coloured or white lights!

PS: Guess who loooves the cozy new chenille tree skirt? :o)

Just coloured lights

Just white lights!

Coloured AND white lights

What a beautiful tree Brenda! I have to admit I am a white light fan, but the rest of the family likes colored light. So we compromise and have colored lights on the tree and white lights on the fireplace mantel. Have a Merry Christmas!

Thanks, Lynne! I have to admit, I love the white lights best as well. I think it makes it very special. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family!
