|Since 80 percent of the ornaments|
are owls, I call it our Hootie Tree.
Yep, we bought a smaller tree over the weekend because hubby is still suffering with a pulled back muscle. He's getting better, but hauling and assembling an eight-foot tree would have been rough.
I love the idea of a smaller tree anyway. It's so much easier to deal with and less tree for perfectionist me to fuss over.
Plus our new artificial tree is the best we've ever had. There's no need for fluffing and it's covered with berries, pinecones, and artificial snow and ice. Honestly, it looks great even without ornaments. But adding ornaments was a breeze because there's plenty of room between branches. Oh, and the best part is, if one bulb burns out, it still stays lit!
