I was feeling a little under the weather today but nothing could stop me from trimming the tree. Dominic and I have been a power team! We put the tree together Friday after school, got the lights on it yesterday and put out the house holiday decorations, then Anna joined us today to decorate the tree. I think it has over 1300 hundred lights, 8 strands of beaded garland, countless snowflakes and other ornaments, and some pretty red bows. So here is a photo of most of the living room with the mantel and tree. :) I got some other shots too that will be in my Flickr photostream.
I've also been on a cleaning out kick so I can count another closet finished. I'm hoping to have the whole house really cleaned out (like throw away a LOT of junk) before Christmas.
