Bare Naked Trees...

Oh my...yesterday...just to recap...we...

...went to Glen Willow for our trees...they were closed for a family funeral...very sad...
...drove farther away to Wolf's...got our trees...
...stopped at Target for multicolored lights...
...stopped at Terrain for ribbon and tiny little fairy lights...
...stopped at Bravo Pizza for a slice...
...held up two trees while Den tried to get them in the stands...
...zipped to Walmart for another tree stand...
...got rid of every piece of tree netting...it is deadly to kitties if they try to eat it...
...vacuumed...pine needles were everywhere and we were dragging them all over...
...had a huge glass of wine while we put on tree lights...
...vacuumed more pine needles...
...had dinner...turkey meatloaf, a roasted potato half, and oven baked beans...all
homemade by me...I am amazing...
...finally told Den where I hid the Christmas cookies and chocolate...
...brushed, soothed and played with two kitties...
...collapsed in bed with our iPads and TV...
...fell asleep in minutes...woke up wired at one ish...


The trees...undecorated...Den's colored lights...



Patty's tasteful white lights...


I have to say there is something sweet about two trees...

Today I am finishing up outside...boughs, holly, ribbons...I love doing this part!

View from the kitchen...


Patty's handmade pillows on a bench in the entry...


I still have bins to unpack...but...I love it! It was a little bit of a shock to us that Den could carry in each tree without help...he could easily lift them into their stands...and it was fun to change things up...after I finish the outside I will hang some ornaments...oh...it's also fun to be able to see the trees all of the time!

Happy Wednesday! Reading? Not a thing...lol!

  1. I love it. I'm with you. I like white lights. But my little girl lights up for color, so it's color for us from hear on out.

  2. We have colored lights outside and white lights on our tree. I have to admit I'm with Den, I love the colored lights. There's no reading going on around here either.

  3. Oh, I loved your list, and how you almost made your way through it, and THEN, that large glass of wine...Yay for you on that one.

    Your house looks so cozy and beautiful, and I haven't even seen it all yet....

  7. I love both kinds of lights, the white twinkly lights and the colored ones. Right now, we are all white, outside and in. I think next year I will do colored lights inside.
