Our neighbors - isn't this welcoming!
Some more neighbors - these light are really red and really straight.
Our tree with gifts underneath. Abby and I put it up Thanksgiving weekend. We bought a pre-lit one a couple of years ago and it is quite a bit easier to put up. The branches are hinged, so it comes in three pieces. Our old one was Mae's (mother-in-law's) and it was a nice looking tree but each branch had to be placed in the base after being fluffed and after losing a million needles.
Enjoy the season.
