Last year we finished our basement to use as a family space. There are adult areas, kid areas and family areas. It is a fun space, very colorful. Last year I did some shopping at the January sales looking for colorful ornaments to use this year. I found quite a bit, but still hadn’t found the right tree.
Late into January I went through the catalog entrance of JC Penney and found a white tree with lights on clearance for $40. I knew it would be perfect! Plus, it helped me justify putting a crazy white tree in the basement!

We hung out down here as a family on Friday night. My husband said to me, “you know, I didn’t get this when you started, but I get it now”. That’s him, he humors me and comes along for the ride, but in the end, he enjoys it too.

My ten year old couldn’t be happier that she has pink and orange ornaments on her tree.

Our white tree is not perfect, there a few holes here and there, a few droopy branches, but I we love it just the same.

Fa La La La Fun!
By the way, is anyone else disappointed that Lifetime, although they are running Christmas movies, isn’t playing the Fa La La Lifetime song?
The simple things that entertain me!
