Here’s our tree, still up in full Christmas glory at the end of January! You might think we are a lazy bunch (which I don’t deny), but the truth is we just put this baby up in early January. That’s a bit odd, you say. Why are you so out of sync with the holidays, you ask. Well, that’s because I scored this baby and his ornament friends at a deep discount after Christmas, and oh boy, I saved a lot of money (about 50% off on the tree and over 75% off on the ornaments). We didn’t miss having a tree during Christmas, because we visited aunt Lei and she had a beautiful tree.
My beautiful tree arrived when we got home, I couldn’t resist putting it up to check it out. It was a huge hit with the boys, they fight every night to turn the lights on. It was so much fun that Mario and I even considered leaving it on the entire year. But two weeks and four broken ornaments later, I knew it was time to pack it up.
We do need more ornaments to cover the entire tree, which means more shopping at the next after Christmas sale!
