Until yesterday I had NO Christmas decorations up.
Until yesterday I had NO chocolate dipping done.
For those that know me....I try to have all of that done by the end of November.
We pulled stuff off the shelf.
Stuff that has been packed since before the move.
Things that mean so much to us.
And new things that I made to match the house we are now in.
And this tree.
Oh my goodness.
I love this tree.
It's nearly a decade old.
It was a prelit tree and gorgeous.
But after a decade of being put away and being smashed.
Not one single light worked.
So my patient sweet hubby suggested we buy a new one.
But we really love the way this one looks.
So he tore off ALL OF THE LIGHTS.
Every single one.
His poor fingers are so sore.
It took 5 or 6 hours.
And then we strung lights on that we will take off and the end of the season.
I love this Christmas tree.
And I got my dipping done.
This is half of what is there.
I still want to make English Toffee.
But that can wait for another day.
