This year, we got a little 4-foot Christmas tree. He is so cute - all skinny and short. We had to put him on top of an old drawer to give him a little bit of a boost.
The fact that our tree is only four feet tall didn't stop Levi from dressing him in 800 lights. 800!!! Each branch is wrapped in colorful lights. I love looking at it without my contacts on... I can't see the tree anymore; all I can see are big, blurry balls of colorful lights.
Decorating a Christmas tree with Levi is a serious business. He had to redo the lights three times because he couldn't get them just right at the top of the tree. He also asks that we only decorate with one type of ornament at a time... so that they're properly spaced on the tree. Levi is a very laid-back, easygoing man, but when it comes to decorating a Christmas tree or making something look nice, he is so meticulous and OCD. It never fails to surprise me and crack me up. I guess I'm not the only perfectionist in this family.
I love this little tree. I have a feeling he'll be with us far into January.
