I sometimes wonder if it takes other people quite so long to erect their Christmas tree in all its holiday splendor. It’s a four day process at our house – usually spread over nearly a week. We have to purchase the tree (day 1) and then let it sit outside to soak up lots of water. Then, we have to put it up into the tree stand (day 2). After we’ve admired its naked glory, we put on the lights (day 3), and finally (day 4) adorn it with ornaments. Of course, I say “we” throughout, but I actually mean Tim and Lucas. I’m in charge of photography only.
