Oh, Christmas Tree

I was able to get the Christmas tree put up this week. I usually get it put up within a week of Thanksgiving. When I was younger we would celebrate my birthday and my moms by putting the Christmas tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving. I had to rearrange my living room to be able to put the tree in front of a large window we have in the living room.
When we rearrange the living room it's always a bit of a project, we have cables running under the floor for the television and the surround sound speakers so they all have to be redirected.
DB always wants to put extra lights on the tree. It is pre-lit but he says 'It's not enough', except he's not the one who has to put the lights on because he only manages to lay the extra strands on each branch, I don't want to be able to see the entire strand just laying there, I want it to be arranged and tucked in throughout the branches.
Putting the tree up is usually fun, taking it down is a different story! I think it turned out pretty and it is beautiful from outside! We've had all kinds of snow for the past couple of days and that helps with the Christmas feeling. I hope everyone is having a good start to their weekend!

It is pretty! Hubs always lays the extra lights around on the outer limbs...I tuck and weave!
