This is the year we decided that the spot for the tree is going to be in the hallway. Last year it was in the formal livingroom which we spend hardly no time in. This hallway, or pet room as I like to call it, is right next to the familyroom, we spend hours there. The tree will more than likely be there every year from now on. Did I mention it was easy peasy to move my plant stand? Here is hubs putting the skirt around the bottom of the tree, we just placed the lights and I want you to notice the square lights, aren't they cute? They are presents and I was only able to splurge on one string ($10.00 apiece), we laid them at a steepe angle on the tree so it would look somewhat jointed but random at the same time. Oh well! It works!
