The 9ft. plus tree is 99.5% finished in the living room and I am waiting for my helper to show up with the stamina, height and basic skills for getting the lights strung, secured and uniform circling the front porch roof line.

and ...our "JOY TO THE WORLD" banner [w spotlight] will get in place while I have the additional pair of hands. Ted's handcrafted Nativity silhouette [w spotlight] is already in place.
