What We Won’t Do For Our Children…

A parents’ love is boundless and what we won’t do for our children is limitless; case in point…our 21 year old daughter and the 21’ Colorado blue spruce in our front yard. She has been, shall we say, “pestering” us to put lights on this tree at Christmas time for the past several years. We have sweetly skirted the issue but finally decided to take the hike up the ladder and hang those lights on the tree this year.

What a project this turned out to be! Two different ladders, a rigged up broomstick with a hook on the end, sixteen sets of C7 multi-colored lights and two “wild & crazy” parents swinging from the branches and we finally have a lighted Christmas tree.

This picture shows how we didn't quite get the lights right on this side of the tree at the top...but the pic is cool because I used the moon as the star for the top of the tree.

Enjoy the Holiday Season!!!
