I've tried. Really I have. I've tried to pare down my Christmas display this year.
No light covers (that cut out about 60 things I'd have to press over the lights)
No ornamotion (the tree has no movement, but it sure is quiet)
Only about 20 of the 100's of dog ornaments (we buy an ornament for each member of the house each year. 4 dogs over the course of 17 years each getting an ornament dedicated to just them plus the stuff that just accumulates makes for over 100 dog themed ornaments)
Honestly, I tried. But then today we stopped to get some terra cotte pots at a nursery and... oops! We bought another tree. Yes, we already have a 9and half foot tree in the living room. This one is just 5 feet and is headed for the bedroom. (it's a big bedroom).
I CAN'T HELP MYSELF!
