O Christmas Tree!

I didn't get around to putting up our Christmas tree until Sunday. I love our tree. It's from the 1960's and it really looks good for how old it is.
It does take a while to get it all together and fluffed out.

Tree up YES! Now lights... UT OH! I threw away the lights last year because they stopped working! Hey lets see if the rope lights we have will work.

ummmm... Well that is so sad looking! Oh man I'm going to have to get out in the cold rain and make a run to Home Depot. Lucky for me my daughter called and said she was ready to be picked up at work. Wait a Second! There is a Home Depot right next to her job, SCORE!
Ok. second round of the lights for the Christmas tree turned out great! 
Oh yeah I forgot to mention to the kids that we were doing a simple tree this year! That's why they all looked confused when they couldn't find the ornaments. (most of them broke last year due to a dog)
So we got some ribbon for the tree and put the ornaments on. I think it turned out great. Very Simple. And yes we used Pick and Green Ornaments I wanted something different this year. 

As for the rest of the room, I could have sworn I had more decorations!

We haven't hung up the stocking yet I need to find a place for them on the wall. But for a Simple Christmas I think it's all coming together!
