My tree is up, no thanks to me. LOL DH and DD put it up Friday. DD also decorated the mantle and the dining room table. She really gets into Christmas. She wants us to get a lot of decorations for the yard. Personally, I'm not that into it.
We have gone to a smaller tree. I think the one we have is 6 1/2 or 7 ft. I bought it last year and it has the lights that are all colors. That's the first time we've ever had a tree with any kind of lights besides white. I like it and so do the kids.
