We are using a pre light artifical tree this year. with mini colored lights. The theme is for the childern to cram as many ornaments on the tree as they can. We have a hodge podge of disney, hallmark, hand made, wooden, pewter, glass etc etc orniments. The girls want to put up a mini tree in their room, we have an extra 3 foot one so they will put up that one. Mostly likely the tree will go up this coming weekend.
