The final result was so nice you wouldn't believe the craziness that went on behind the scenes. This is what our tree looked like when we finished on Sunday night
We started putting the tree up on Saturday with the help of hubby's parents. The garland above the fireplace didn't last long. The boys pulled that down the next day and we decided to forego that because it could prove to be dangerous.
I also got my act together and ordered our Christmas cards early again this year:). They are here and I love them. I can't wait to send them out.
