I CHEATED AND I WON!

Well hello out there! How’s Tuesday morning treating you? I hope its better than Monday morning because we all know that Monday morning is the worse with it being the start of the week and allWinking smile

Last night, I wrangled in the big Christmas tree from the garage.  Well lets back up, I guess if my husband brought it in and I stood there and watched with a I DON’T WANT THIS TREE IN MY HOUSE look on my face, I really didn’t do much huh? Anyway that’s not the point. The point is I didn’t want the tree in because:

a) it’s too big for my living room.

b) I have to rearrange the entire space to make it fit.

c) it’s too big for my living room.

After he brought it in, I stood there and looked at the box for a while (wishing and hoping it would suddenly decrease in size) and then began to just go with it and put it together.

With artificial trees, there are like 3 or 4 parts that you must put together to build the tree.  Well…… Here is where I cheated. Instead of using all of the pieces that came with the tree, I left out a section. Cheating? Yes. Winning? ABSOFREAKINLUTELY!

My living room still had to be rearranged to accommodate the tree, but at least I don’t have to use a step ladder to decorate the tree.  Oh and use all of those ornaments…

(the tree is kinda fat at the bottom, but whatever!)

I thought it was so cool to have a huge tree, but this year I would have preferred this

No worries.  I have a mini tree (2 to be exact!)

So there you have it, I cheated and won! Now I just have to finish decorating the tree and put the room back together!

We are all a little big on the bottom!! We cut ours down at a tree farm over the weekend. I was too pooped to decorate when we got home. My girls could not wait until I got home from work Monday. Their excitement makes all our efforts worth it though. I have to remind myself we are creating wonderful memories for them!
Have a great week

Way to think out of the (Xmas tree) box! You are so smart. You can't even tell.

Well done my friend! And I'm with you, I'm all about the smaller tabletop trees lately. I guess cuz I'm the one who puts all those lights on the dang thing!
