The Holiday season is finally here, and I started out rarin' to go. I went out to the garage and hauled in my tons of decorations and began putting up the tree in the living room. There was a moment of fear when I realised that the new tree might be too big for the room, but we managed to squeeze everything in. Then I started with the ornaments. The theme for the living room is to be green, gold, and red. So I sorted out all the appropriate ornaments, and got going.
It looks crappy. Seriously crappy.
After much staring with my head tilted off to the side, my tongue hanging out the side of my mouth, and both perplexity and tears glistening in my eyes I have come to a conclusion....
I need more ornaments. Bigger ones. Sparklier ones. Brighter ones.
It's true, whatever Mr. Barefoot tries to tell you. The ornaments I have are all scaled for a much smaller tree, and they just don't have the impact needed on our new, huge, lush tree.
So I let the Sprouts work on the kitchen tree, which is the "go-nuts-and-throw-everything-on" tree (pics soon). I will be picking up some bigger, splashier ornaments over the weekend on my way home from work, and hopefully that will fix my tree problem.
We are hosting our first winter holiday celebration for the family on the 14th, so I have a lot of work to do before then....
