Oh Christmas Tree!

It took two night but our tree is up and shining! I like to do it the weekend before Thanksgiving and with Cooper's party and then Steve had to work on Sunday I didn't think it would happen, but it did! Good thing too, Steve may be doing black Friday then he is going to the IU game Saturday so may have had to wait till December! Let me hear the collective gasps now!

Do you know much Steve loved not having to get up in the attic for our Christmas decorations? Makes it soooo much easier. First up was clearing spot, these window are what originally drew me to this house. Cooper got to the do the honors of putting on the first ornament. I wish I would have had more pictures of us stringing the lights. We have two strands of 200/each. Do you know how long a strand of 200 lights is? Steve was stringing, I was holding and making sure it didn't get tangled, and Cooper was doing a fine job making my job harder.

It was getting late by this time so we had to stop for the night, but Cooper and I were back at it the next morning. He tried is darnedest to tie the string around some new bulbs we bought.

Then he wanted to take my picture for whatever reason.

Finally, we were all done! You can blame Steve for cutting off the star.

I think once December comes I'm going to do a post on some of our special ornaments. I might do that for a week and pick a couple each day. That sounds fun, just thought of it.
