This was pretty much the speed at which everything went.
This year is the first year we’ve ever had an artificial tree. Grandma and Grandpa updated their tree, and then didn’t like the new one after all, and so passed it on to us.
It came with the lights already installed, which is something that I could really get into. Families With Two Small Children and Another On The Way – I highly recommend fake Christmas Trees. They’re just so blissfully easy.
Which is not to say that the enitre decorating process is easy. It still requires much planning.
As well as much careful, delicate work.
Even so, mishaps happen. Quite frequently, actually.
Which means that it’s time to take a break and eat cookies.
