Most Funnest Tree Ever

So the 'rents were gracious enough to let us get our own tree this year. Normally they put up 2 fake trees for Christmas, 1 upstairs - that is very nicely decorated, the 2nd is downstairs and is usually the "kids tree" b/c the decor isn't really for show. So Cheryl and I asked if we could take over the "kids tree" and get a real one, which they were more than happy to allow (MIL says this is going to make her want a real one every year).
Since being married Cheryl has taught me to be more and more frugal...she didn't know this would come back to haunt her. Last year, after Christmas, some of my favorite lights went on sale, i mean like dirt cheap (around $1 a box, maybe $1.50); we ended up purchasing a bunch of those big 'ol colorful Christmas lights! This year...they went on the tree...enjoy
Disclaimer: the lights didn't really "haunt" Cheryl, she actually liked them a lot.

This is Jess:
I LOVE THE TREE! You guys did a great job. It will fit in nicely with you ugliest christmas sweater party on Friday night. Not that it's ugly, just that it will compliment some of the sweaters, I'm sure.
Thanks for getting me in the Christmas mood!
