The Baubles Are Ready: The Tree is Not

Christmas Ornaments

Christmas Ornaments WAITING!

This year I wanted a much bigger Christmas tree.  What was I thinking?

We came home with a beautiful VERY, TALL, 10-foot, fluffy fat TREE purchased from the fire department. We placed it in the stand we have had for years. Good.  We tested the light strings and they all worked. Good. We got out the ladder and started in wrapping and draping and snugging up the lights just so. Beautiful! We plugged in the lights. There was a big POP and then darkness. OH DEAR! We got more lights and started all over again. Ah, that looks nice! We  stood back to admire the tree and attempted to plug the lights into the wall socket.  We had placed the lights on the tree with the plug-in at the top and the connector at the bottom! Off came the lights again. Maybe we should have a glass of wine?  Watch some football and take a break? No, we start AGAIN. I turn on Christmas music, maybe that will help? Tada! Re-wrap, re-drape, place just so. Of course, my job is supervisor! SB is on the ladder AGAIN.  The lights work! Tada! We place a few baubles on the tree. Not all. It takes me a while to unwrap all of the older ones, the special ones. But, we did put on the glass Egyptian bulbs I love. Now we will take a break. We will go back to tree decorating shortly. WHAMP!! Tinkle, Tinkle! The noise came from the entryway. OH NO THE TREE HAS FAINTED!  Can we even get it UP? Stay tuned and enjoy!

      I think we are going to Ashville, NC next week to see the Vanderbuilt House and all their famous trimming. I hear their gigantic, beautifully decorated trees don’t fall over! Ha Ha!

    Our tree is leaning again so I haven’t added anymore to it. Waiting for hubby to get home from business trip to right it up and shore it up!
