My mom reminded me today that I had not posted any pictures of the newly re-decorated tree (OK, so I never put any other pictures up either, sue me).
Anyway, despite neither of us being Christians, we were both raised in Christian households and have Christmas as a tradition that we are loath to give up. My Girl thoroughly enjoys decorating (and I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoy the house once it's decorated). I don't have any outside pics to show, but here are some interior shots. I may add some exterior shots later, if I am able to get any. The tree really is the worse for wear, but it still looks nice. What's missing from these pictures are the decorated windows, the decorated dining room, the decorated bannisters, etc. It's a fairly festive house!
Bonus -- guess how may lights on this 10 foot tree? Hint: there are more than 400.
