^ I was always a bossy when it came to the tree, too. It took several years to talk my mom into packing away our hand made ornaments on the childhood tree. When I finally had decorating freedom, I held onto it with a death grip.

More LED drama! When I was driving home from work this morning I saw the main decorations in the center of my town. It is a beautiful idea. Mini trees as far as the eye can see, wrapped in cool LED lights, but the 2 main trees were done in warm toned white lights. It throws the whole thing off. They should have done them in the same or in color.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
