It took eight strands of lights to cover the tree. Paul didn't want white lights, but I overruled him this year.
Our friend Lotus gave us a big set of icicle ornaments which really make the tree glow.
It was such fun and so sweet to find and hang the "memory ornaments," as Paul calls them. You know, the ornaments that have memories behind them, like this one that Ben made way back when he was a kid.
The new wreath looks great above the mantle.
Now it's time to sit back and enjoy the pretty and peaceful results!
