Trimming the Tree

I have been waiting for a YEAR for this.  Last year because we were in a new house I wanted so badly to buy a new CHRISTmas tree but I knew if I waited I would be able to get one for 75% off after CHRISTmas so that is what I decided to do.  I wanted a tall skinny tree for the dining room and I found the perfect one (for 75% off :) ) and had to wait until this year to put it up.

I wanted to have two trees.  One formal, nice looking one in the dining room and one hodge podge one in the family room for all of our ornaments I love but just don't go together :)  So that is what we have and yesterday we put them both up.

Bobbie and Dave wanted to go to the movies with some friends so David came over to play last night and the "re-arranging" of my nice tree began :)
