We've gotten off to a very slow start with decorating this year.
This is last year's tree. It was an artificial prelit tree that we'd used for about 5 years.
It was a magnificent tree - very wide around - which was a good thing because we have a LOT of ornaments!
By the end of last Christmas, unfortunately only half of the tree remained lit. We contemplated disconnecting all of the lights and stringing lights like we used to before this prelit tree came along.
But then, before lugging it out of the basement this year (it's a VERY heavy tree and hubby has a bad back), we found a prelit SLIM tree on sale. The fact that it was very lightweight weighed heavily in our decision to purchase it, as did the fact that our living room is the size of a shoe box and the old tree really did take up an awful lot of room.
So the slim tree went up....
... and looks just as lovely as the old tree, albeit much smaller.

We still haven't decorated the tree, and I think before we do I might move it over by the railing where we've always had our previous trees.
That is if I can convince Baby to leave her new favorite spot long enough to scoot it across the room!

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
