Our tradition is to put up our Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving, so last Friday morning, we were off to pick out our tree. By Friday afternoon, we had given up on our Christmas lights (For some reason, all of our strands didn't store well, and we were left with a heap of wires that wouldn't light up.) and were back to the store to purchase 800 more. But by Friday night, it looked like this, and all we wanted to do was sit back and get lost in its beauty. (These photos just don't do it justice.)
