I got this far on the tree on Sunday. I thought it was pretty good since I usually don't have it out of the box this early. Since the boys moved the electronic stuff from the corner, I am now able to use my larger tree and not the slim "Paris Hilton" tree that I have used the past couple of years. Artificial trees really aren't very pretty like this.
The weather has turned out cold, wet, and windy tonight. It even sleeted a bit. When I got home, I located the lights and put them on the tree.
