Alan and Betsy - The Griswolds

We went and purchased our Christmas tree today.  I am so happy with it.  It measured about 9 1/2 feet when we got it home.  The best part is it only cost $20.00.  I couldn't believe it!  It had to be a Christmas miracle.  We expected to pay way more for one this big.  My daughter is telling me that I trying to be like the Griswolds this year.  

(Please overlook the towel in the floor, we had just watered the tree)
  It was so fun to decorate.  The tree now has 1000 lights on it.  We had to go buy all new lights because somewhere in the middle of all the moving all of our lights disappeared.  However, after we had went out and purchased all new lights I found them packed in a box under all the ornaments.

I can't share the finished product yet because I am saving it for the linky party.  I will share a sneak peek ... after all it is the season of giving and sharing.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope your decorating goes smoothly and you don't loose your lights.  


  1. Wow, you have the Grand Canyon of trees. It's huge and beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished decorating!!!

  2. Isn't that always the way of it? Go out and replace something and then you'll immediately find it! That is one beautiful tree you got!

  3. It's the perfect tree and only $20~ Score!! Btw, Christmas Vacation is our fave movie, and not just at Christmas. It just never gets old.
