One of the first things many people say when they come in the house is, "Oh wouldn't that be a perfect spot for a Christmas tree". I agree :) This tree is a 9 foot tree, I guess I need a 12 foot one but geez, don't want to climb a huge ladder to decorate that LOL! This is the first year in our new home so I used what I had. I think next year I will work on some ribbon and garland and such but I am not exactly sure what else to do. I know it can look a lot better!
