Putting up the Christmas Tree

Friday, November 27, 2009

For years now, I have always put up the Christmas Tree(s) the day after Thanksgiving because the kids are out of school and there are no scheduled activities so this is the perfect day for me to just stay home and get it done. I had all the kids help drag the trees and decorations up stairs from the basement storage room last night so that I could get an early start this morning. So this morning Mark & I put the main tree together and I got right on it, first shaping it which takes a couple of hours then decorating it which is as least 3 or more hours. Well after I placed the final ornament on the tree, I stepped back to take a look and kept thinking that the tree wasn't looking right. While I was standing there contemplating that thought Shamesha walks in and asks, "Why does the tree look lopsided?" I said, I was just standing here thinking the same thing. Then I said, "Oh well, I am not taking it down, so it's just going to have to stay that way." That thought lasted about 5 minutes and I knew that there was no way I was going to be able to leave that tree up like that for the next month. So I called the kids together and told them that they were going to have to help me take the tree down, but first I needed a nap... We got the tree down and I spent the remainder of that day decorating the tree for the 2nd time. That will NEVER happen again!
