The Magical Christmas Tree

It started last season when our friend, Jeff, took advantage of the Christmas closeouts to score a 13-foot tree only to find out he had 12-foot ceilings.

John and Jeff surprised me with the tree, and I have to confess I was really nervous a) about it fitting and b) our capacity to decorate that much square area of tree space.

However, some ribbon and bargain ornaments from Target along with help from Chase and Bethany and a borrowed ladder have resulted in the most beautiful Christmas tree we've ever had.

I'm not sure the photograph shows how ginormous huglobulous large the tree is, but it is really impressive.  Plus, now it truly feels like Christmas.
