We picked it up at Home Depot and they have the trees organized by height. This one was grouped in with the 8-10 footers. Once we got it home we realized this was a 10 footer and our ceilings are 9 feet. Oops! Ha-ha, but it only took a second to chop off the top. I have about 800 lights on it, gold beads, gold snowflakes, gold swirly things and 4 different type of gold balls. It is a golden masterpiece!
And on Sunday morning he was still in the spirit! I came downstairs and the tree was lit up, the house was warm, Christmas music was playing and he had this wonderful breakfast waiting for me.
He even put a little red pepper and green chives in my omelet for added Christmas color. Ha-ha...I just had to take a picture because this will never happen again. Hubby is more of a scrooge than anything else. But I am not complaining :) It was very nice.
