We finally got the tree home and out of the bag. It took me another three days to fluff it out so that we could decorate it. Then it was another day or so before we finally got the ornaments on it (did I already talk about this?!) and Alex did a beautiful job. This year he made an effort to try to get ornaments on the back and top of the tree as well as the lower front. As you can see from the photos, I still haven't gotten around to plugging in the lights, lol.
This holiday season so far has been truly wonderful. My husband is working more hours and feeling better about being busy and having more spending money than we expected at this time of year. I finally finished my two biggest repair projects and received a large payout right when I really needed it most. I took some of my windfall over to Sams Club (my annual pilgrimage) to get my yearly 25lb bag of sugar, along with a giant bag of flower, more chocolate chips than I can count, two giant bars of milk and white chocolate for the peppermint bark that Dante requested, and for good measure, a box of pumpkin break mix from Krusteaz (only because you can make pumpkin pancakes) and a kit to make a train out of Rice Crispy treats, lol. I love to bake and I'm looking forward to making something special for my friends and family. Other than knitting, I show my love through baked goods, lol.
