We traditionally decorate the day after Thanksgiving (and take down the decorations the day after Christmas) but since we were out of town this Thanksgiving, we didn't decorate until the Sunday after. G. put up the outside lights (you can see the boxes and boxes of them here:)
While the rest of us unpacked the indoor stuff.
Putting the tree together:
Last year, at the Christmas clearance at Target, I bought all new indoor lights. I freecycled the old, multicolored ones, and used strands of red and green for the the tree this year. It looks really neat!
Then the ornaments...
And that's the end result!
