This is our fourth year using an artificial tree. We're getting pretty good at putting it together. In this photo Roo is anxious to help with the skirt. Anything that has a skirt is A-OK in her book.
This is the second year we've used colored lights. I prefer white, the Badger prefers colored, so we take turns. He's feeling all nostalgic and sentimental with those colored lights on:
It's hard to get a good picture of a tree. Ours is very pretty. I decided I would like the colored lights a lot better if the ornaments were white and clear, so I bought a bunch of crocheted snowflakes and a bunch of glass icicles. They're lovely.
