Don't worry Mike - I just can't wait to see your gorgious trees again!
I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
You've never come across as being egotistical to me. You've come across as someone who loves Christmas decor and can afford a little more than many of us can. We don't have to be clones with identical trees. I enjoy talking to people who understand my excitement, because you know there are people out there who think we're all crazy. Well, maybe we are, but it's really fun that we're not alone.

and crown him Lord of all."
Thanks for all your nice comments. It means a lot to me
Now onto the madness. I have a list of about 15 stores that I visit every year from early October until mid November for decorations so it is a very dangerous time for me My wife dreads it when I start my rounds and what is even worse for her this year is that she is going to be out of town when my #1 Christmas ornament store has their closed door Christmas sale. This is the same store where I bought that amazing reindeer from a few years back. I am planning a recon mission there in 2 weeks to see what they have and to also see how much of a beating I am going to get from my wife
I stopped by another store where I buy all my lights from and they had purple led Halloween lights so I will be buying a bunch of sets for the purple tree. perhaps I will get lucky and they will go on sale in the coming weeks.
I'm going to be waiting for the recon mission report!
I can't wait to see your pictures!
Just for the record, I haver never thought you were egotistical either. Crazy yes!! but not egotistical.
Can't wait to see some pics!
Unfortunately, I am restricted to just a couple of department stores for decs where I currently live, so was wondering if any of the stores you buy from are online and if so, whether you'd be willing to share that info.
